Bell & Ross, the specialist of aviation watches, presents its new model BR-X1, a sporty chronograph combining high-tech features and haute horlogerie finishes. Totally new in its conception, the BR-X1 marks a new collection and the beginning of a new page in the brand’s history.
10 years ago, Bell & Ross launched the BR-01, a discreet watch directly inspired by on-board flight instruments. Its square shape, its round dial and its broad dimensions make it a watch recognizable everywhere but above all, an icon. Contemporary version of the BR-01, the BR-X1 is a futurist, technical and strong watch: the assurance of an ultimate performance.
Masculine watch par excellence, the BR-X1 it’s a combination of noble, futurists and high-tech materials. The light 45mm titanium case is covered with a scratch proof ceramic and rubber band. The push buttons, also in ceramic, are covered with ergonomically-designed rubber inserts.
The chronograph, complication characteristic of the aviation universe, has always had a special place for Bell & Ross. Its last creation, the BR-X1 is equipped with a skeleton chronograph of an extreme lightness. The back of the BR-X1 has a small opening which reveals the heart of the balance.
Available as a limited edition of 250 pieces, the BR-X1 is an exceptional, revolutionary and innovative model.
