Bulgari's 'Octo' is the company’s most recent dress watch that reinvents masculinity, and classic and colossal beauty.

The iconic double bezel lays the purity of a circle on top of the faceted structure of an octagon. The resulting combination harks back to the power of architecture, and how these techniques were used to assert power and prestige over the community.

The same ideals are used to assert power in this watch, especially the 'Octo Steel' that takes this idea one step further. The original Octo is featured with a leather band, while the Octo Steel has a metal band and carries over the same architectural lines found in the face.
