Launched in 2021 as a collaborative project between Bvlgari and The Rake and Revolution, the Octo Finissimo Nuclear Option is a distinguished timepiece that grabs attention no matter what. Made of ceramic for the very first time and featuring a 43mm-wide construction that highlights the Octo’s unique bracelet and case design, the Nuclear Option's sandblasted exterior offers a matte finish that draws attention to the real party piece, its dial. Boasting a chronograph and GMT function, the Nuclear Option's dial houses three subdials dedicated to its two eponymous functions. However, the dial's true genius comes from its almost white pale green surface. Painted entirely with Super-LumiNova, the Nuclear Option's dial glows a bright shade of green in the darkness that illuminates its functions and black dial furniture like the backlight on a phone. A genuinely striking effect, the Nuclear Option deserves its nickname and stands proud as an unusual watch within a collection that is famed for its already-unique design. Powered by the 3.3mm thin automatic cal. BVL318, the Nuclear Option sports 55 hours of power reserve and a wealth of fine finishing that remains entirely visible behind a sapphire crystal caseback. Not ones to hide their hard work, the Nuclear Option is indeed a two-sided beauty with its dial and movement both combining to create a wonderful viewing experience no matter which side of the watch you would like to appreciate.
