Though its design looks simple on the surface, Bulgari's Octo Mono-Rétrograde is nothing but sophisticated. Set against the bold geometry of the Gerald Genta-designed Octo case, the dial is reminiscent of a speedometer and indicates time by using the single hand to show seconds while an aperture shows a jumping hour. This is all powered by their in-house 191 Solotempo movement and features a 38mm steel or pink gold case with alligator strap.
