In 2015, the BR-X1 watch was released. With its masculine design, it was amazing. It marked BELL & ROSS’s success towards a more experimental and innovative arena. step. Combining boldness with the technical features of sports watches, it features a skeleton chronograph movement and a high-tech square case made of a mixture of titanium, ceramic and rubber.
After using a sapphire case in 2016, Bell & Ross released a new work BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-Rotor in 2017. Although both have reached the tourbillon level, both have significant changes in the movement or shape
Two years later, the BR-X1 Tourbillon Sapphire tourbillon sapphire watch set off a veritable revolution-the case is cut directly from a whole sapphire, giving the famous square case a clear and transparent temperament! This precious model establishes a direct connection between the two fields of haute horlogerie and super complexity. Today, with the birth of the BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-Rotor, the second generation of the X series, Bell & Ross adds a new chapter to the BR legend.
What BELL & ROSS did when designing the new BR-X2 watch-the case and the movement are integrated. When designing the stainless steel and sapphire case, the creative director of the brand Bruno. Bruno Belamich came up with a utopian fantasy idea: ‘Merge the case and the movement into the same part, make the case disappear, leaving only the movement visible.’ BR-X2 was born from this.
The BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-Rotor, as the name suggests, is equipped with Belles’ rare micro-disc movement, and the concept of integrating the case and the movement is embodied in the appearance.
The basic design concept of the BR-X2 watch is to wear the movement directly on the wrist. The square BR-CAL.380 self-made movement developed and designed by Bell & Ross is placed between two pieces of sapphire crystal glass The periphery is connected by a whole stainless steel narrow strip, which ensures that the field of vision is completely unrestricted. This design makes the case visually disappear, with a hollowed-out dial to reveal the movement.
In order to highlight the inherent sheer aesthetics and expertise, the designers of the BR-X2 chose to combine simplicity with high performance. With a flying tourbillon that counteracts the effects of Earth’s gravity, this two-hand watch displays hours and minutes with ultra-high accuracy. Simplicity, yet elegant and understated, thanks to its medium-sized square case (42.5 mm) and its exquisite ultra-thin movement (4.05 mm) wound by a micro-automatic disc.
In addition to the different sapphire crystal watches, the two generations of sapphire crystal watches are different in terms of quantity and price. From this, we can indirectly verify that the technology developed by Bell & Ross has become more mature.
BR-X2 achieves the ultimate leap in creativity with bold and modern design, and BELL & ROSS has established one of its most innovative high-end watch brands. A very unique watch, limited to 99 pieces, dedicated to smart eye connoisseurs, creating a unique experience for them: wearing the watch movement directly on the wrist.
