The on site motion no doubt leads to the somewhat hefty price tag – but does the exceptionally complex case, along with the title on the black lacquered and polished dial. A screw down crown and case back guarantee the Octo is effective at 50m of water resistance, though Bulgari asserts to check the Ultranero to 100m. It is kind of difficult to match the Bulgari Octo into conventional watch classes, but it’s probably not intended for a lot of ruggedness. “Versatile” might be the aim, and edgy it certainly is, but the omission of luminant on the dial makes it harder to call the Octo really “sporty” despite vibrant colours and brooding masculine instances, since these models exhibit.The Bulgari Octo Ultranero’s 41mm-wide and 10.4mm-thick case is a really reasonable size for a wide assortment of wrist sizes, and while the squarish shape of this the Octo makes it easy to wear boldly, the deep black color reduces visual mass at precisely the same moment. And, the extremely high quality rubber strap adds to its wearability. The Ultranero set sports DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating on the case as well as the buckle, which should assist its scratch-resistance. Assembling a wristwatch for a particular marketplace as Bulgari has done together with all the Americas Limited Edition is common nowadays. Though, it must be stated that such a broad geographical area with just two continents which include 35 disparate countries makes it a limited edition centered on its availability and colors rather than appealing to those who want to express some sort of regional affiliation.
