Welcome to the world Bulgari. Today, we’ll be your guide to the usage, care and maintenance of your Bulgari Octo Finissimo ultra thin automatic timepiece. It’s important to note that although this is an automatic winding timepiece by virtue of its micro rotor automatic movement, nevertheless, you can manually wind the timepiece by taking the crown in the first position flush the case and turning it clockwise approximately 25 to 30 turns. You’ll note the balance begins to beat on the case back and the seconds hand begins to advance on the dial side. At this point, simply pull the crown out with second position and you can set the watch properly. Always restore the crown to its flushed position prior to continuing use of the watch. It’s important to note that should you wish to wind the watch manually up to its maximum rated power reserve of 60 hours, you can simply continue turning the crown, listen for the subtle click of the bridle style mainspring as it slips. This is a mechanism designed to avoid over winding.
You cannot accidentally over wind this automatic winding timepiece due to the bridle style mainspring and you will know the watch is fully wound when you hear its subtle click or slip within the mainspring barrel. Now it’s important to note that there’s several classes of hazard that should be avoided when you’re using your timepiece. The first and most serious is water. This timepiece is rated to 3 ATM which is extraordinary for an ultra thin timepiece. Most watches in this class are water resistant to 2, 1 ATM, sometimes exclusively against moisture and dust. 3 ATM in this case is sufficient for security against accidental splashing while washing hands or perhaps if you’re inadvertently caught out in a rainstorm, however, water resistance of a watch is not a static quality. Over time, lubricants will dry up and seals will age, meaning the timepiece becomes more susceptible to water intrusion as it ages. Now it’s important for Bulgari to have the watch water tested at least every 24 months at an authorized Bulgari service center to ensure that factory rated hermiticity is retained over time and to intervene and correct if water resistance ebbs.
It’s also important to do your part to keep the watch secure. Ensure that the crown is always flushed to the case when the watch is exposed to water or when there is water on the watch. Moreover, do not wind the watch and do not pull the crown out to set the watch or the watch is either submerged or whether there’s water on the case as both of these actions can introduce water to the interior of the case, bypassing the seals of the stem and causing catastrophic cosmetic and mechanical damage. Now another hazard, specifically to the timing precision of the watch is magnetism. The balance of the watch has at its center a metallic hair spring. Today, magnets are ubiquitous in daily life in the closures of purses of wallets, on refrigerator doors, in speakers, sub woofers and high powered home and office electronics. If you suspect due to erratic timing that your watch has been exposed to magnetism, take it to a Bulgari authorized service center where specialized equipment is available to quickly and easily demagnetize the hair spring of your watch.
Finally, be aware that extreme shocks and vibrations can alter the timing of your timepiece and permanently damage it. It’s important to disuse the watch during high impact activities such as batting, golf, tennis, ire arms marksmanship, dirt biking or mountain biking as all these can damage the timepiece. Ultimately, Bulgari recommends that its timepieces receive a full mechanical overhaul every three to five years. Now it’s best to have the functions and timing of your watch tested during your 24 month water resistance checkup. If service is deemed to be required, service your watch exclusively at a Bulgari authorized service center as these agencies solely have access to the original factory replacement parts, specialized equipment and trained personnel to restore the instrument and investment value of your Bulgari timepiece. Moreover, on a timepiece such as the Octo Finissimo, which features a highly specialized sand blasted case finish, only Bulgari authorized service centers will be able to restore both the lines as well as the finish of this watch and bracelet. It’s important to note that only these agencies are able to back all work and parts invested with a Bulgari factory service warranty.
