After the success of its Chronograph Tourbillon Sapphire, French watchmaker Bell & Ross takes the minimal approach even further and introduced another masterpiece of Haute Horlogerie, the BR-X1 Tourbillon skeleton-sapphire.
Water-resistant to 3 ATM, the new model is housed in 45mm square case, cut out of 5 blocks of pure Corindon, the physical name of Sapphire and Ruby. Inside is an exclusive Bell & Ross manufacture mechanical movement, with a power reserve of 100 hours (more than 4 days).
The dial is cut from a solid piece of Grade 5 Titanium, made of an annular plate with hand-polished bevels and Opalin surfaces.
Priced at $385,000 , only eight pieces of the Bell & Ross Watches BR-X1 Skeleton Tourbillon Sapphire have been produced.
So, any takers?
