Renowned Hong Kong actor and singer, Tony Leung, added another jewel to his illustrious career when he received the prestigious Golden Lion Lifetime Achievement Award at the 80th Venice Film Festival. At 61 years old, Tony Leung humorously remarked, "I always wanted a Golden Lion. Finally, I can have it for myself. I don't have to share with anybody." Notably, three films he starred in had previously won the Golden Lion for Best Picture at the festival: "A City of Sadness" (1989) directed by Hsiao-Hsien Hou, "Cyclo" (1995) by Anh Hung Tran, and "Lust, Caution" (2007) directed by Ang Lee.
Adding to the spotlight, Tony Leung wore the exquisite BVLGARI Octo Finissimo watch during a press conference at the 80th Venice Film Festival. This automatic timepiece features a titanium case and bracelet, along with an impressively thin mechanical manufacture movement, automatic winding, and titanium dial.
Known for its simple yet sophisticated design combined with Swiss watchmaking mastery, the BVLGARI Octo Finissimo is priced at HKD 133,000 – a reflection of its quality and craftsmanship. As the name suggests, the watch boasts a distinctive octagonal design inspired by the Basilica of Maxentius, the last Roman basilica constructed in Rome. With a total thickness of just 5.51mm and a self-winding movement that's a mere 2.23mm thick within its 40mm diameter, this timepiece is a perfect complement to an icon like him.
Leung's emotional tribute to Hong Kong cinema left a lasting impression at the festival. Upon receiving the award, he received a two-minute standing ovation from the audience. Leung expressed his gratitude, saying, "I am so grateful to have been raised in Hong Kong and nurtured by the Hong Kong movie industry, where my acting career began." He added that the award is a heartfelt tribute to the Hong Kong cinema that has played a pivotal role in his life and career.
In this dazzling moment, Tony Leung exuded confidence, charm, and a unique style, showcasing his impeccable taste.
