Bulgari Octo Chronograph Quadri-Retro 2011

A robust but serene character, a structured but innovative octagonal case, avant-garde but refined techniques: the new Bulgari Octo Chronographe Quadri-Retro, from the GĂ©rald Genta collection, is a
perfect expression of the successful marriage of dualities that characterises the watch world. A sporty and contemporary addition to the Octo Bi-Retro model presented in 2010, this latest creation perpetuates a unique style, a signature as well as a presence in the highly exclusive world of haute horlogerie. Made of steel and ceramic, this timepiece has plenty of positives. A large window at 12 o'clock displays the jumping hours, with the retrograde minute hand travelling over a 210° arc.
The retrograde date is shown on a 180° arc at the bottom of the dial, framed by retrograde chronograph counters at 3 and 9 o'clock indicating the minutes and hours.
