The Crown’s Josh O’Conner played his role of the unhappily married and sometimes cruel Prince Charles so convincingly that you shook your fists in anger every time he appeared on screen to berate Emma Corrin’s Princess Diana. And the 78th Golden Globes agreed, anointing the 30-year-old as the best television actor in a drama at yesterday’s ceremony.  

When he appeared on screen, this time to accept the award and thank, among others, his series partner Corrin, the actor brought a smile to your face. “To Emma Corrin, best actress winner, you're extraordinary, talented, funny, and brilliant player of rock paper scissors. I love you to bits,” O’Conner said.

Also, he looked damn good as he correctly chose to dress up for the event, even if attendees were broadcasting safely from home. The rig was Loewe, a black tuxedo jacket with wide and white lapels matched with a soft and flowy cravat (instead of a tie!) and wide and white trousers. It was an off-beat choice that suited the young actor. But what you may have missed in this delicious look was its perfect detail: a slim watch left unseen and off-screen.  

It’s actually ultra-thin—not just slim. With a thickness (or ultra-thinness) of just 6.4 millimeters, the case of the Bulgari Octo Finnissimo Automatic slipped nicely under the French cuff of O’Conner’s dress shirt. It also fit the mood of the important ceremony, brandishing only the quietest of details on a black matte dial: the hour markers, the hour hounds, and a discreet small seconds dial.

What’s great, as well, is the Finnissimo’s modern mood. It’s not fussy nor precious (it’s stainless steel). And, with a large 40-millimeter diameter and the Octo’s signature geometric configuration (shapes within shapes), the watch still projects power and energy—perfect for the charismatic actor who just won his very first Golden Globes award.
