Bell & Ross BR-X1 Tourbillon Sapphire Watch is Limited to 5 Pieces

Bell & Ross has announced the BR-X1 Tourbillon Sapphire, the Swiss watchmaker’s first sapphire crystal cased timepiece. Limited to only 5 models, the high-tech chronograph features a sporty yet sophisticated look which was inspired by aeronautical flight instruments.

Bell & Ross BR-X1 Tourbillon Sapphire Watch is Limited to 5 PiecesTo create a standout timepiece, Bell & Ross decided to enhance the look of BR-X1 Tourbillon Sapphire watch with a skeleton movement. Through  its transparent exterior, the timepiece reveals a Flying Tourbillon master grand complication and an elegant mono-pusher chronograph. The complication of BR-X1 Tourbillon Sapphire watch also displays the outstanding 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.

Bell & Ross BR-X1 Tourbillon Sapphire Watch is Limited to 5 PiecesThe main plate and pillars of the chronograph were machined from a single block of metal. The perfectly completed skeletonizing of the movement, offers the exceptional mechanics to be observed when starting, stopping and resetting. Additionally, the sapphire watch features 30-minute counter at 10 o’clock and 60-second counter at 2 o’clock for the chronograph functions. These are engaged by the mono-pusher rocker –positioned at 2 o’clock– which controls the Start, Stop and Reset functions.

Bell & Ross BR-X1 Tourbillon Sapphire Watch is Limited to 5 PiecesThe case of BR-X1 is cut from 9 blocks of sapphire: middle piece, back, top, crystal and the four bumpers and is assembled with screws. The timepiece is finished with a strap made from translucent rubber and metallic Kevlar weaving.
