Bell & Ross BR-X2 Skeleton Tourbillon Micro Rotor (Technical Specifications and Price)
Last year at Baselworld 2017, Bell & Ross presented the BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-Rotor where the case and movement form a single element. How? When designing a case from steel and sapphire (a highly technical material which is exceedingly difficult to work with), Bruno Belamich, the Bell & Ross’s creative director, came up with a utopian idea: “Fusing the case and movement into a single component to make the case disappear, leaving only the movement visible.”
Now Bell & Ross presents BR-X2 Skeleton Tourbillon Micro Rotor which has the same case and movement as BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-Rotor, but more transparent.
The case of the BR-X2 Skeleton Tourbillon Micro Rotor has a diameter of 42,5 mm.
The design of the BR-X2 implies wearing the movement directly on the wrist. The square BR-CAL.380 manufacture caliber, designed and developed entirely by Bell & Ross, is set between two sapphire crystal plates. This makes the case virtually invisible, showcasing the movement.
