This new release follows the launching of the Octo Finissimo Tourbillon at 2014, Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater in 2016 and last year’s Octo Finissimo Automatic.
In the instance of this new Tourbillon Automatic model, the Maison had to find technical solutions in the overall structure in order to accomplish this amount of slenderness blending exceptional expertise with respect to get a certain aesthetic and a version that has attained icon status. Working on the basis of this Finissimo Tourbillon movement started in 2014, this development — Calibre BVL 288 — handles winding via an attractive and innovative peripheral oscillating weight positioned on the rear of the movement. It is constructed from aluminium and white gold, two alloys whose contrasting density empowers the weight.

An introduction on the back of this watch, depicting the motif adorning the entry of the boutique on the Via Condotti in Rome, provides an opportunity to admire the tourbillon and the weight .
