Launched in 2016, the BR-X1 Chronograph Tourbillon Sapphire from Bell & Ross was a new watchmaking adventure that emphasizes concepts like high-tech, creativity and superior mechanical performance. Now the Swiss watch brand presents an exceptional new model, the BR-X1 Skeleton Tourbillon Sapphire that takes the challenge of transparency to the extreme.
The hour counter is off-centered and positioned above the barrel for releasing the tourbillon’s cage and further revealing the mechanical beauty of the movement. Bell & Ross has designed a flying tourbillon that seems to float in weightlessness.
Heir to traditional watchmaking techniques, but highly contemporary in its design and finishes, the work of the skeleton reduces mechanics to the essential for the splendor of translucency.
This exceptional watch, launched in a limited edition of 8 pieces, is made from 5 sapphire blocks that were carefully carved before assembling them accurately and delicately with screws. It combines the fundamental codes of the brand with the greatest technical and aesthetic refinement.
