It must be said that each time omega replica watches adds a complication to its arsenal,omega replica watches it does so with a seamless and perfect design integration of the new functions. This is certainly the case with the minute repeater that adds a single, barely noticeable yet totally functional push-piece to the side of the case. And that is certainly the case with the Octo Finissimo Chrono GMT. The chronograph pushers of the watch are so perfectly placed and integrated that, at first, you think that Bulgari has just added a subtle pair of crown guards. Ditto the push-piece on the left of the case that operates the super functional GMT indicator, which can be read off the 24-hour scale in the subdial at three o'clock. The rest of the dial offers supreme ease of use, with a continuous seconds indicator at nine o'clock and a 30-minute chrono totalizer at six o'clock. So what could possibly be a dream version of this chronograph? Well, I'm glad you asked. Because celebrating the 15th anniversary of Revolution, we've decided to make an exclusive 15-piece edition of the Octo Finissimo Chrono GMT.
Says Buonamassa, I loved the idea that you proposed about making an ultimate tool version of this chrono, one that someone who loves performance and motorsport could actually use with great effect. So we decided to put a tachymeter on the bezel. It's true that there is a Zenith-powered, BVL 328 caliber Octo model, the Velocissimo,Rolex Replica Watches that features a tachymeter. But as Buonamassa explains, Ah yes, but on the Octo Finissimo model, the bezel is so much thinner, and the tolerances so fine that it was a real challenge to print this. Furthermore, the truly unique distinction of the Revolution edition is its status as the first fully luminous Octo Finissimo. Says Buonamassa, For this I had to be a bit creative, because the hands and the indexes as you know are so fine that it was impossible to apply Super-LumiNova to them in the traditional way. In the end, we found a really cool solution.
