Octo’s formal sophisticated approach and newly established aesthetic norms allow it to deploy its aesthetic charms throughout a wide spectrum and completely demonstrate its capabilities, as highlighted by the retrograde-display. The Octo Mono-R?trograde emphasises the distinctive and intricate design by combining it with a minimalist, clean display in the form of a speedometer, naturally invoking the car world. This horological complexity, which is one of the Octo distinctive features, allows for unconventional and intuitive time readings. The Octo watch has basic functions: the minutes are displayed by a hand going over a 210-degree sector, and the hours leap at 6 o’clock. The incredibly simple black lacquered dial emphasises simplicity and purity.
