At SIHH 2018, Bulgari unveils two watches from the OCTO collection in a chronograph flavoured edition. The Bulgari Octo L’Originale Chronographe and his darker counterpart, the Bulgari Octo Chronographe Ultranero, come as an expected evolution in the legendary collection. We reviewed last year the thin Bulgari Octo Finissimo Automatique and the magical Bulgari Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Squelette and we are happy to announce the new chronographs of the Octo family.
