Distinctive expression of daring design and highest precision, Octo encircles with simple sophistication Italian creativity and Swiss mastery in the art of watchmaking. 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 modernity, the watch asserts its sheer force of character with a black powerful livery. The cleverly structured case with its black Diamond Like Carbon treatment thus acquires a new and very Italian aura of strength.
