Nothing is more glamorous than a stay at La Posta Vecchia on the Roman coast with a watch like the Bulgari Octo on your wrist. This latest incarnation, called the Octo Finissimo, is auto-winding with a 55-hour power reserve. It has a 40mm case in extra thin titanium (the Octo holds the record for the slimmest automatic watch in the world) and a transparent back. It's water resistant for those dips in the sea or pool, and is both sporty and elegant—making that transition from the swim to black tie with complete ease.
