Jean-Christophe Babin says, "With regard to my competitors... movement innovation of this kind hasn't been achieved since the last true pioneering era in the late 1960s.
It was never our goal to create the thinnest mechanical timepiece in the world. The goal was to bring the same innovation, finesse, and daring that made us leaders in the jewelry and ladies' watch sectors to the men's watch world. We realized that being Italian was our biggest advantage. Our watches and their parts are all made in Switzerland,Replica Watches but as an Italian-owned company, we have a much more open design than the Swiss.

Babin says, "The Octo finissimo is only possible because u-boat replica watches owns its movement maker, dial manufacturer, casemaker, and bracelet maker. It would have been impossible to convince external suppliers to make the efforts we needed."
