The watch also features a screw-in steel crown with a ceramic insert, ensuring water resistance of up to 100 meters, making it not just stylish but also practical for everyday wear. The metallic hands, indexes, and numerals are filled with SuperLumiNova, a luminous material that enhances legibility in low-light conditions, further adding to the watch's functionality.

The Octo Roma Chronograph comes with a polished and satin-brushed stainless-steel bracelet with a folding clasp, along with an easily interchangeable rubber strap, providing versatility and comfort for the wearer.

The large 12 and 6 numerals, along with the long hour markers, allow for quick and easy time reading from any angle, making it a practical choice for everyday wear.

A Fusion of Innovation and Luxury Bulgari has also unveiled four exquisite Octo Roma Tourbillon watches, showcasing the brand's innovation and craftsmanship at its finest. Among them
