Bulgari Octo finissimo X Tadao Ando: do you speak angle?

He is no doubt one of the greatest architects of the modern era. Both a sculptor of light and a master of space, Tadao Ando strikes the perfect balance between modernity and eternity. Putting his name on a watch model becomes a guarantee for its quality. As for the Octo, which in its finissimo versions has been crowned and celebrated many times, changing it wasn’t an easy task. Balanced and angular like our late friend Genta would have liked, the changing the outer part would have been too risky. On the other hand, as for the dial, as long its spirit is respected, some audacity is allowed. And this is how the master sums up his creation: “On the dial, an infinite spiral develops, going from seconds to minutes until it is no longer visible. It is the effect of waves on the water unfolding to the fourth dimension. From expansion to compression, this pattern expresses the infinite, the eternal, the timeless.” A crystal clear creation from the master of angles.
