Bell & Ross releases an extension to the experimental collection: the BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-rotor. In the new Bell & Ross BR-X2 Skeleton Tourbillon Micro Rotor, case, movement and dial form a single element.
The concept behind the BR X2 is that the mechanism is brought to the forefront, while the case disappears. The square BR-CAL.380 manufacture calibre, designed and developed entirely by Bell & Ross, is set between two sapphire crystal plates, joined at the sides by a narrow band of satin-brushed steel machined as a single piece, ensuring unrestricted visibility thanks to the skeletonized dial whose readability is enhanced by the applied Super-LumiNova-filled indices and hour/minute hands.
The micro-rotor is machined in a very dense alloy, Reconit 18, which contains 95% tungsten with an 18.5 density, compared to steel. Its satin-polished steel case is 42.5mm in diameter, with a flying tourbillon function at 6 o’clock and a skeletonized dial.
Measuring 42.5 mm x 42.5 mm, the watch is water resistant to 50 metres / 165 feet. The strap comes in grey alligator, with a folding, satin-polished steel buckle.
