Characterized by its smooth and modernist form, the top Japanese architect Tadao Ando reinvented and designed the Octo Finissimo modern watch by Bvlgari. This creative work was a reimagination and a pioneering collaboration among the artist and the luxury brand.
Pulling inspiration from concrete, the contemporary architect Tadao Ando designed this modern watch with a marvelous architectural design. Recognized as one the world’s thinnest automatic chronograph, the luxury watch was introduced in 2017.
The modern watch was born through an alliance between Fabrizio Bonamassa Stigliani – Bvlgari’s Director Of Watch Design – and Tadao Ando. Providing and breathing an inspiration from concrete, this modern watch was build to be a symbol of a unique personality.
The Tadao Ando edition is limited to only 200 timepieces and features a titanium bracelet. Each modern watch with a unique design presents a simple geometry with a spiral motif inspired by the concentric circles found in Japanese Zen Gardens and also an image of a wave that ripples across the entire dial. On the back of the luxury watch, there is a Bvlgari’s ultra-thin self-winding mechanical movement with a platinum micro-rotor that is visible through a sapphire case-back.
Featuring a case fitted with an integrated bracelet that measures just 2.5mm thick, the modern watch is also rated waterproof up to 30 meters and finished with the modern architect’s signature.

Lapidated like a precious stone, this beautiful piece by the luxury brand Boca do Lobo is sculpted in mahogany wood, finished in lacquer or gold leaf and high gloss varnish coat, featuring one single rotor that will keep an automatic watch mechanism going long after time takes its toll.
Strong, impenetrable, precise, the Knox Luxury watch winder features a contemporary design that combines functionality with a sense of fantasy, with a solid black grid frame punctured with golden rivets that cover the polished gold plated body and that can save a luxury and modern watch.
