BELL & ROSS
BR 01 Laughing Skull
The new Skull watch from Bell & Ross is equipped with an automaton movement and it includes a surprise that will make you laugh: the mandible moves and the skull grins back at you! The skull's mandible is animated during winding. To create it, the brand developed the BRCAL.206: a calibre entirely produced by the manufacture that is also skullshaped, so that the mechanism fits the case perfectly. In the extension of the 4 bones, the 4 bridges secure the main plate to the case and come together to form a single assembly floating in the centre of the watch. The skull on the dial is the key feature of this watch and has been made from metal appliqué, which has been embossed to create a relief pattern, the skeleton work gives the impression that the skull is floating weightless in the centre of the case. The sword-shaped hands are similar to those on the earlier Skull collections, but on this model, they are skeletonized and coated in Superluminova.
