The exclusive BR-X1 Tourbillon Skelton Sapphire crafted by Bell & Ross is limited to just 8 pieces and is the ultimate symbol of watchmaking expertise and a masterpiece in transparency.

The challenge of a skeleton movement is to remove as much material as possible while respecting the aesthetics decided by the designer. Every strength line must be calculated exactly so, so that there is just enough metal where needed.

The extreme transparency of sapphire allows the eye an unequalled opportunity to travel inside the movement and witness the ingenious interactions in all their crafted glory. This high-tech chronograph, boasts a sporty look and robust sophistication and is heralded an inspirational new line in horological excellence for the iconic marque.
