Bulgari sets a new record for ultra-thin watches with its new Octo Finissimo Automatique

Other Brands



Creating the world’s thinnest automatic ever, that weighs just 68g, brought with it its own set of difficulties. “A standard rotor can add up to a third to the total thickness of a movement, which we could not allow,” says Babin. “A peripheral rotor would have added to the diameter and we could not accommodate this within the existing Finissimo case – it would have increased the size by 3mm or so taking it to 45 or 46mm. If the watch was thinner and wider it wouldn’t work – we needed to keep the subtle balance of the manual-wind Finissimo case because we knew those proportions were perfect.”

The case of this Bulgari Octo Finissimo Automatic is 40 mm in diameter. The watch is powered by the in-house, record-thin BLV138 developed and manufactured at the Bulgari manufacture in Le Sentier. The large self-winding movement is an evolution of the manual wound BLV128. Despite the ultra-thinness of the movement, it has a power reserve of 60 hours. The Bulgari Octo Finissimo Automatique will retail for $13,000.

Chanel’s debuts a spectacular in-house watch movement for women: the Calibre 2

Other Brands


Chanel is quickly developing their portfolio of watches and their dazzling new Première Camélia Skeleton Watch marks another feather in the maison’s cap. This is the first watch for ladies from Chanel to feature an in-house movement and the movement is being called Calibre 2. The first in-house movement from Chanel (Calibre 1) debuted in their Monsieur de Chanel watch last year.


Chanel’s Première is not a new watch at all; this model was originally launched 30 years ago. The new version features the same octagonal shape that’s inspired by the brand’s own No. 5 perfume bottle. The watch is available in a version with 104 brilliant-cut diamonds and 4 baguette-cut diamonds and another with 42 baguette-cut diamonds and 52 brilliant-cut diamonds. Chanel’s simple and classic aesthetic is maintained by the black satin strap and the white gold double folding buckle set with 30 brilliant-cut diamonds.

Chanel’s skeletonized Calibre 2 is a work of art in itself. The movement has been designed in a way that its bridges form the house’s emblem, the Camelia flower. After the idea was conceptualized, it was the technical team’s responsibility to bring the vision to life, which they have certainly done. The movement is manually wound with a 48 hour power reserve. Chanel has gone one step further with the baguette diamond set watch by setting the movement with diamonds too. The brilliant cut diamond case version has no diamonds on the movement, but a bit of dazzle on the watch hands instead. The baguette version will also be available with a full pave bracelet.

According to Hodinkee, prices start at €130,000 (approx. $138,000) for the brilliant-set model while the baguette-set model is to be priced at €190,000 (approx. $200,000) on a satin strap and €260,000 (approximately $276,000) with the full pavé bracelet.

A Briefcase Like No Other: Fendi Peekaboo Fit

Other Brands

There are now three men’s Peekaboo size. Regular, Small, and Fit.fendi-peekaboo-fit-1


We love the Peekaboo. Men’s, women’s, it doesn’t matter. It’s a great amazing bag and there’s no getting over it. It was such a wonderful thing to find that there’s a men’s Peekaboo bag. Perhaps it could be considered too big, so Fendi came out with a smaller men’s Peekaboo.

Perhaps, as a briefcase, the men’s Peekaboo really just didn’t make it well enough as a briefcase. So seeing a new kind of men’s Peekaboo, called the Peekaboo Fit, is the union of two things: the iconic Peekaboo design, and the familiarity of the briefase that you’ve known all your life.fendi-peekaboo-fit-3

It’s a much thinner bag compared to its bigger brothers, but carries over all the good things about the men’s Peekaboo. There’s the drop leather front that makes a Fendi bag bag a Peekaboo, zippered pockets, and a top handle. It also retains rings on both sides so you can carry it with a sling.fendi-peekaboo-fit-4

It’s a great business suit companion. But some could consider the bag an okay everyday bag, even though you’re not necessarily dressed up.

With the Peekaboo Fit, men can now choose three sizes of the peekaboo bag. The Large, Regular and Fit sizes should be enough selection for the fashionable Fendi man. Wouldn’t mind having one of each too.mens-fendi-peekaboo-family

It looks like a quilting-trend is going on, designer brands are competing with each other under the radar. But that’s a not a surprise, quilting looks chic, elegant and expensive, which fits perfectly in the category of high fashion. After Saint Laurent introduced the ‘Y’ Quilting, now they released a brand-new Stitched Diamond Matelasse Quilting.

A classic bag to own, this Saint Laurent College Bag is not a new bag. Laying eyes on it might feel like an old love rekindling that spark in your heart because there’s something good about it that has changed over the course of years. If you look closer, you’ll instantly notice that the College Bag is now sporting a new ‘Stitched Diamond Matelasse Quilting’ which means that the quilting is done by a meticulous way of stitching.

Aside from this, it features a top handle with metal chain and leather removable shoulder strap so you can easily transition it from being a handbag to a shoulder bag. It also has an interlocking YSL signature buckle magnetic closure placed in the middle for an added sense of security.

Compartment wise, it has an exterior back slot pocket, an interior central zip compartment, and 1 slot pocket to hold your essentials.

But overall, be prepared, because it’s a matter of time that Saint Laurent will inject this new Quilting in other Classic Bags.
