The Octo L’Originale watch represents the origins of the Octo line and the essence of its design. Endowed with a high-frequency chronograph, the cutting-edge timepiece blends utmost performance with sporty elegance. In the 15th and 16th century, Italian artists such as Leonardo da Vinci excelled in creating both innovative and timelessly beautiful masterpieces. Driven by the same genius, Octo combines a unique octagonal design — inspired by the 310 AD Roman Massentius Basilica—with exceptional mechanisms. Epitome of resilience, finesse and highest precision, the Octo L’Originale with integrated chronograph asserts a technically oriented nature fused with the distinctive character of Italian design. The Octo L’Originale watch has a mechanical manufacture movement, the caliber BVL328, also known as Velocissimo, with a 50-hour power reserve. The case has a notable 41 mm diameter, fully made in titanium with transparent case back and a graduated bezel to 500 units. The dial as well is in titanium, with a charming gray color equipped with hand-applied indexes, outer octagonal shape minutes/seconds track, three subsidiary dials and date between four and five o’clock. Integrated with a black rubber strap and titanium ardillon buckle treated with black Diamond Like Carbon, the watch is water-resistant up to 100 meters. It is also offered with a full set.
