New Arrival! BR-X1 Skeleton Chronograph Carbone Forgé

May 15, 2015
Bell & Ross Reveals New Limited Edition of 250 Pieces

Bell & Ross has impressed us yet again! The BR-X1 line, revealed back in 2014, brought us an entire collection filled with sporty, high-tech chronographs which somehow managed to be both sophisticated and bulky. Now they’ve introduced the BR-X1: Carbone Forgé, a revolutionary timepiece which utilizes compressed carbon fibers to create a deep black, non-porous, water-resistant, single-unit case with clean edges.

The square case is lined with a ceramic and rubber “bumper” which will help protect the watch from impact damage. As with most Bell & Ross timepieces, the back of the BR-X1- made from grade 5 PVD titanium- features a small, round opening which reveals the beating heart of the balance. Made from grey-tinted sapphire crystal and featuring appliqué metal indicators with photo-luminescent inserts, the dial forms a clear window through which the exceptional movement can be admired. The faceted, Superluminova-filled hands and appliqué indicators offer easy legibility.

The central hour and minute hands are read traditionally, while the small seconds hand is positioned at 3 o’clock. The skeleton date dial is positioned at 6  o’clock. Instead of a hand, the minute timer on the chronograph function features an ultra-light aluminum disc resembling the blades of a turbine. The hand on the central second counter indicates quarters of a second. Essential for calculating speeds, the tachymeter scale appears on the flange. The chronograph hands feature subtle red accents. The grooved rubber strap has a black PVD steel buckle.
