TreA­SUre cheST

DA MAN - Caliber - - ESSENTIALS -

There’s such ap­par­ent en­thu­si­asm when the bell & ross team un­veiled this ex­cep­tional piece at this year’s basel­world. The br-X1 Tour­bil­lon Sap­phire hap­pens to be their suc­cess­ful at­tempt to craft a sap­phire crys­tal case. Al­though it might look like glass, sap­phire crys­tal is ac­tu­ally the sec­ond hard­est ma­te­rial on earth af­ter di­a­mond. It’s al­most im­pos­si­ble to scratch, and, thus, it takes quite a while to cut it as well. For this time­piece nick­named the “trea­sure chest”, the French watch com­pany puts in not just their sig­na­ture mono-pusher chrono­graph com­pli­ca­tion but also a fly­ing tour­bil­lon, which is uniquely topped with an “&” logo, a ref­er­ence to the brand’s name. The team def­i­nitely de­serves a pat on their backs for this one.
