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.
