Setting its eighth world record, Bulgari this year released the Octo Finissimo Ultra. Measuring just 1.80mm thick, it held a world-record spot when it was unveiled in March and held the record up to July 7, when it was beaten. The case is so slim that it is only slightly thicker than a dime. There are eight patents pending for the watch, and it even features a QR code on the barrel’s ratchet wheel. It is being sold with exclusive NFT artwork, but just 10 will ever be made. The caliber is built directly into the watch’s tungsten carbide caseback.
