The Italian brand Bulgari has presented an original accessory — a mechanical watch with a record thin case. The novelty, called Octo Finissimo Ultra, is interesting not only for the unique design of the watch mechanism, but also for the trendy NFT “passport” that confirms the authenticity of each item.
The thickness of the watch case is only 1.88 mm. It is made of sandblasted titanium and the case back is made of tungsten carbide, which is also used to make industrial tools. Another design feature of the novelty is a large QR code on the front panel. He refers to NFT art, which acts as a “passport” for each instance of the watch.
Unlike the traditional crown on the side of the case, the design uses thin adjustment wheels to adjust the hands and “charge” the spring that powers the movement. The declared autonomy of the novelty at full winding is up to 50 hours. Bulgari Octo Finissimo Ultra, limited edition (only 10 copies), is priced at $440,000.
