Octo Maserati timepiece created in collaboration with Bulgari
So what do you get when Italian luxury automaker Maserati joins hand with Italian fine jewelry maker Bulgari to create a masterpiece? It is an exquisite timepiece that bears all the defining elements of both these perfection striking companies. Known as the Octo Maserati this octagon shaped watch is housed inside a 45-mm steel case with the customary Maserati Trident engraved on it and the Maserati grille vents design clearly emulated for the watch. It was first shown off to the enthusiasts at the 2012 BaselWorld fair in Switzerland (ended on March 15th) which was a good platform to showcase this humdinger of a timepiece.
The steel case has brushed steel bezel with tachometric scale and scratch resistant sapphire crystal with the blue-lacquered dial of the watch sports as hand-applied inner bezel ring, satin-brushed minute counter and snailed chronograph hour and minute counters. Other than that this gorgeous timepiece also has soft calfskin strap, retrograde counters, mechanical movement crafted by Bulgari and Calibre CG7800 Haute Horlogerie movement ergonomics.
