The collaborative took shape in the summer of 2015. Simon Ma travelled to La Chaux-de-Fonds, where he spent time at the Bulgari dial-making facility. The artist devoted his considerable talents to adorning the 13 dials with a different symbolic theme relating to the equestrian theme. He worked in the most traditional possible manner according to the rules of Chinese calligraphy, using brushes and specific lacquers of various colours.
The limited series exclusively intended for Greater China connoisseurs comprises 12 Octo Finissimo Petite Seconde models driven by BVL Calibre 128, a mechanical hand-wound movement developed and produced in-house.
The last creation is a one-of-a-kind Octo Finissimo Tourbillon, powered by BVL Calibre 268. The latter mechanical hand-wound movement is the smallest tourbillon ever made and represents an absolute record in this category.
Each of the models in this strictly limited series comes in a dedicated presentation box decorated by Simon Ma.
