After crafting its groundbreaking Octo Finissimo watch, BVLGARI has now tapped renowned Japanese architect Tadao Ando for a striking collaboration. Reimagining the world’s thinnest automatic chronograph, Ando drew inspiration from concrete, material that offers buildings unique personality and conveys his architectural design.
Limited to 200 units, the limited edition watch features a titanium bracelet and case housing BVLGARI’s ultra-thin self-winding mechanical movement with a platinum micro-rotor. The sleek crafting is rated waterproof up to 30 meters. The matching titanium dial also features a spiral motif reminiscent of the concentric circles found in Japanese zen gardens. Finally, the watch is complete with a see-through case back with Ando’s signature and limited edition markings.
Priced at ¥1,980,000 JPY (approximately $18,266 USD), the Tadao Ando x BVLGARI Octo Finissimo Automatic Watch is available now on BVLGARI’s Japanese website.
