Bvlgari, Revolution and The Rake recently released a follow-up Octo Finissimo Chronograph GMT watch to last year’s “White Light” version.
This new edition for The Rake and Revolution goes “Nuclear” as it takes the green Super-LumiNova and it applies it to the entire dial where the indices stand out in the dark in negative relief. Designer Fabrizio Buonamassa explains, “We went through quite a few dials. Some were too luminous so that even in normal light they were glowing, and some were not luminous enough. We wanted to find just the right balance so it looked like a normal white dial chronograph in daylight but as soon as you moved into darkness, it glowed with perfect visibility and remained luminous for a long time.”
Powered by the ultra-thin BVL 318 movement, the watch boasts 55 hours of power reserve, a 43mm black ceramic case and ceramic bracelet, a chronograph function, a 24-hr GMT function, a local time one-hour advance pusher, and a small seconds subdial. Priced at $19,550 USD, the Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Ceramic Chronograph GMT “Nuclear Option” for Revolution and The Rake is limited to 30 pieces. Read more over at The Rake
