    Cool! How do you like this? I tired one on the other day and it actually, for the first time, got me taking Bvlgari seriously! What made you decide to pull the trigger?

    Re: Hi-Ends eye candy thread!!!

    Sorry for posting that twice. I'm clearly not very good using a forum :) haha. I like it a lot - I've been waiting on the sidelines of the octo finissimo collection for a while. For once in my life, I was actually patient, and waited for a few iterations of the watch series to develop before buying in. Loved the sandblasted steel versions (non-skeleton) and the first skeletons as well. However, I didn't want a leather strap - and while I love the silver version of the skeleton, in-person I really struggled to see the hands in various lighting. The rose gold hands on the black version are an improvement on this (not 100% by any means), but I just loved the aesthetics and how the light plays on the skeletonized parts. I have wanted a slightly undercover watch - and while I know that anyone who knows a little about watches may recognize it, for where I work, it won't immediately be spotted like my rolex has been multiple times.

    Finally, I hung around the sidelines waiting for the watch to drop to a reasonable amount, and with the new ceramic black skeleton coming out (and priced an additional 5-6K on top of the MSRP of the DLC black coated), I decided to snag one before they were all gone having negotiated with a dealer for about a year now. I have yet to see a negative review of the octo collection - I think Bulgari has really innovated and done something new and refreshing - the success they are having with this collection is deserved in my opinion. If you decide to look at it seriously, PM me and I can recommend the one or two shops that have by far the best prices on this.

    This was the only Royal Oak at the boutique I visited today. I’ve got to say, it really is some eye candy. The solid rose gold is ever so shiny under light and to top it off with the stunning blue tapisserie dial is truly something else. Sure, this piece may not be to the taste of many, but I completely see the allure of it.

    Nope the DLC titanium black. Haven’t seen the skeleton ceramic in any of the places I’ve visited so far - sure it will be around in a few months. Bulgari told me the black DLC wasn’t available in the US and Dubai was the first time I’ve ever seen it available in person so snagged it while I could.
