Chris Hemsworth’s Rolex Watch Game Just Taken to Another Level

Quickly becoming a new favorite among A-listers, and spotted on Cristiano Ronaldo, John Legend, Bradley Cooper, Idris Elba, David Gandy (among many others), the angular octagonal case of the Octo Finissimo, an extremely thin case measuring just 1.8mm, means it looks like it belongs on the set of a sci-fi movie rather than the red carpet. When he first appeared in the 1980s, the brainchild of the legendary Genta, it must have looked like he had been teleported from another planet. It was haute horlogerie reinvented in cubist painting or brutalist architecture, and a total rejection of any traditional notion of haute horological elegance. Today, you can spot one a mile down the red carpet.

Chris Hemsworth wears a Bulgari Octo Finissimo Skeleton.

The Octo Finissimo Skeleton by Chris Hemworth with skeletonized mechanical manufacture movement, manual winding, small seconds, power reserve indication, extra-thin sandblasted 18 ct pink gold case, skeletonized dial and black leather strap, means that there is still a lot of fine watchmaking underneath. the hood of this ridiculously thin case. This means that despite its bold design and the relatively large case width of 40mm, the watch slips perfectly under a shirt cuff, yet offers plenty of impact when the watch is revealed. The Octo Finissimo is most commonly seen in steel, especially matte sandblasted steel. This type of alchemy, in which cheap metals are made precious, is another signature of Genta design. But Chris Hemsworth shows that the watch is just as elegant when made from a precious metal like rose gold. He looks perfectly at home in his three-piece suit, and we love how he’s styled the watch with statement silver rings and bracelets – an individual touch to elevate an otherwise classic outfit. The god of thunder has never looked so good.
