BELL & ROSS
BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-rotor Skeleton
The concept behind the BR X2 is that the movement is worn directly on the wrist. The mechanism is brought to the forefront, while the case disappears. Bell & Ross designed and developed an exceptional square movement, the manufacture calibre BR-CAL.381, which adopts the brand’s iconic signature shape. It is set between two sapphire crystal plates, linked by a narrow band of steel machined as a single piece, to ensure unrestricted visibility. This makes the case virtually invisible, and the dial does the same to showcase the skeleton movement, allowing all elements of the mechanism to be admired. For a skeleton movement, the challenge is to remove as much material as possible whilst ensuring the model’s mechanical constraints are respected. Inspired by modern architecture, this model will be available in a limited edition of 50 pieces.
