When it comes to the creation of the world’s thinnest timepieces, Bvlgari knows a thing or two. In fact, the luxury wristwear brand has created not one, but six watches that have shattered the industry record regarding ultra-slim timekeepers. The latest item in its long series of incomprehensible examples has just been revealed — a 7.4mm-thick automatic chronograph known as the Octo Finissimo Tourbillion Skeleton.

Released alongside a handful of siblings, the skeletonized iteration of the Octo Finissimo stands out as the most interesting offering from Bvlgari’s Geneva Watch Days 2020 panel. Six years ago, the original Octo set the world record for the thinnest timepiece in the industry. Since then, the brand has elaborated on and refined its groundbreaking platform, relinquishing its crown to no one. At its heart, a complex, 3.5mm in-house movement, single-push chronograph, and tourbillon make their debut, earning it the title of the “flattest tourbillon chronograph ever made.” All of this is housed within a lightweight, but durable titanium case, giving owners peace of mind as they peer down at the watch’s inner workings through its protective glass. Head to Bvlgari’s website, where the limited-to-50 watch is slated to go on sale for around $178,000, to learn more.
