Modern vibes from Bell & Ross and a clas­si­cal piece resur­faces from Longines.

If there’s any­thing that’s typ­i­cal of Bell & Ross, it is the solid square case. For a very un­usual propo­si­tion, the French maison in­tro­duces the BR-X2 Tour­bil­lon Mi­cro-Ro­tor that looks al­most like an un­fin­ished watch. The idea of a “skele­tonized” dial is taken to the ex­treme as the base­plate be­comes the dial it­self. There is an un­mis­tak­able in­dus­trial vibe in terms of aes­thet­ics, fur­ther en­hanced by the gray leather strap. The uni­for­mity of color, how­ever, dis­guises the ex­tra-flat fly­ing tour­bil­lon at the 6 o’clock po­si­tion bear­ing the brand’s iconic “&” sym­bol. The trans­par­ent sap­phire case se­cured only by four screws also ap­pears in­cred­i­bly sophisticated. Well, that is also Bell & Ross in a nut­shell: modern so­phis­ti­ca­tion on watch­mak­ing tra­di­tions.
