The French origin boutique brand Bell & Ross, known for its aerospace-inspired models, introduced another experimental model; BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-Rotor Skeleton. Based on the previously released BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-Rotor, the new model is reinterpreted with the skeleton concept.
“With its timepieces that are inspired by square-shaped gauges in the airplane cockpits, Bell & Ross has managed to get into the league of unique watchmakers. The brand recently introduced its new limited editio model, BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-Rotor Skeleton, which successfully highlight the capabilities of the brand in terms of both technical and visual.”
The new model is offered in a 42.5mm diameter case designed in brand signature square shape. Bringing a fresh breath to the transparent concept, the middle body of the case is made of satin-polished stainless steel. The case is equipped with anti-reflective treated scratch resistant sapphire crystals on both sides. Water resistant to 50 meters, the case perfectly matches with the skeleton style of the model.
In line with the transparent concept, the dial is fully skeletonized with a Flying Tourbillon located at 6 o'clock. The dial offers enough legibility under darker conditions thanks to the metal applique hands and hour markers filled with Super LumiNOVA® phosphor material.
The new model is powered by the manufacture Caliber BR-CAL.381. Self-winding movement is equipped with an exclusive oscillating-micro rotor made of a special hi-density (18.5) alloy called Reconit 18 containing 95% tungsten. Providing a contemporary look due to its satin-polished components, the movement can be enjoyed through different angles thanks to the transparent design of the case.
Bell & Ross BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-Rotor Skeleton (Ref. BRX2-MRTB-SK-ST) is offered on a gray alligator strap that is secured with a satin-polished stainless steel Bell & Ross signed folding clasp. The new model is limited to a span of 50 units only.
