Through a transparent case, this timepiece reveals the fascinating secrets of its flying tourbillon and chronograph mechanism.
In 2015, Bell & Ross launched the BR-X1 line with a Haute Horlogerie version: the BR-X1 Chronograph Tourbillon.
This watch replica combined the extremely virile esthetic codes of the brand with technical refinement. Yet the thrill of a further development was still to come. True to its relentless quest for excellence and performance, Bell & Ross boldly set forth to achieve the ultimate expression of this already iconic design: a skeleton movement enhanced as a rare treasure.
Through a transparent exterior, the BR-X1 Chronograph Tourbillon Sapphire is built around a flying tourbillon master grand complication and Bell & Ross has added an ultra elegant mono-pusher chronograph. The chronograph complication is visible and provides a privileged window into its many intricacies: the column wheel under the dial at 12 o’clock, the semi instantaneous jumping hand (rather than a traditional sweeping hand), and the power reserve indicator of 100 hours (at least 4 days) at 9 o’clock. Masculine through and through, the main plate and pillars have been machined from a single block of metal.
