The Bulgari caliber BLV 268 is an extra thin flying tourbillon movement. In fact, it is regarded as the thinnest manual-wind flying tourbillon movement in the world.

In Bulgari’s own words:

“The quest for thinness has been one of the watchmaker’s goals for a long time. By introducing the Octo Finissimo Tourbillon, Bulgari has reached a new milestone in the development of ultra-thin watches with a major complication: its 5.00 mm thick case makes this flying tourbillon watch simply the slimmest on the market – no other even comes close.” -Bulgari catalog, Haute Horology Collection, 2017

Watches with this movement:

The Bulgari calibre BLV268 is featured in the carved green marble Octo Finissimo Tourbillon model, specially made for the Only Watch 2023 charity auction (Lot 15).
