Distinctive expression of daring design and highest precision, Octo encircles with simple sophistication Italian creativity and Swiss mastery in the art of watchmaking. In the 15th and 16th century, Italian artists such as Leonardo Da Vinci excelled in creating both innovative and timelessly beautiful masterpieces. Driven by the same genius, Octo combines a unique octagonal design – inspired by the 310 AD Roman Massentius Basilica - with exceptional mechanisms. Epitome of modernity, the Octo Ultranero range asserts its sheer force of character with a black powerful livery. The red accents on its hands and hour-markers and the rose gold bezel, create a striking contrast with the dark surface. Octo Ultranero watch with mechanical manufacture movement, automatic winding and date, BVL 193 caliber decorated with perlage, côtes de Genève and chamfering finishing, double barrel and 50 hour power reserve. 41 mm stainless steel case treated with black Diamond Like Carbon, 18 kt rose gold bezel and crown set with ceramic, transparent case back, lacquered polished dial, hand-applied 18 kt rose gold indexes, integrated rubber strap and steel ardillon buckle treated with black Diamond Like Carbon.
