Bell & Ross is making another striking expansion to its advanced “Test” assortment this year. Just reported, the new BR-X2 Skeleton Tourbillon Micro-Rotor is the development of the BR-X2 Tourbillon presented a year ago. Stripped back to the total basics, this super present day watch takes the test of straightforwardness to the outrageous, offering perfectly clear knowledge into the company’s translation of contemporary Haute Horlogerie.
If the BR-X2 Skeleton Tourbillon Micro-Rotor looks natural, that is on the grounds that it fabricates straightforwardly on the establishment BR-X2 Tourbillon . The case and the development are the equivalent, yet it is promptly evident that Bell & Ross has accomplished new boundaries of straightforwardness with the plan and construction.
The hidden thought is to give the wearer the feeling that they are wearing the development straightforwardly on their wrist. In that capacity, the 42mm cleaned steel case is scarcely in excess of a thin band of cleaned steel, machined as a solitary piece, and set between two sapphire precious stone plates. Cleaned, sloped sides and clear gaskets guarantee the case is just about as undetectable as conceivable on the wrist. Four useful sinks hold everything place in the particular B&R style and take into consideration a shockingly decent water-obstruction rating of 50m. It glances wonderful in the photographs, in spite of the fact that it may not be appropriate to those with especially furry wrists.
As referenced however, the essential concentration here is the development. Created in organization with MHC Manufacture Haute Complication, a Geneva-based development planner, the production type BR-CAL.381 quantifies simply 4.05mm thick. With regards to the subject of extraordinary straightforwardness, the bridges have been openworked to uncover however much as could reasonably be expected of the internal workings.
The design of the development is moderately downplayed yet very alluring. The openworked bridges are vertically brushed, the slants are sandblasted and the wheels are rhodium-plated. The tourbillon and its pen are likewise brushed on top and cleaned on edges, with the stylised “&” of Bell & Ross coordinated into the confine. The general look is exceptionally sculptural and creative however at the equivalent holds a practically mechanical sort tasteful, particularly with regards to the fundamental ethos of the brand.
There is no genuine dial at all. All things considered, a roundabout rib produced using sapphire with incorporated records sits on top of what’s left of the mainplate of the development. This gives the feeling that the records are coasting over the development and looks very cool. Time is shown midway (hours and minutes), while little seconds are followed on the one-minute flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock. Noticeable at 9 o’clock is the micro-rotor produced using a thick tungsten amalgam. The development offers a sound force hold of 50 hours when completely wound.
Offered in a restricted version of only 50 pieces, the new BR-X2 Skeleton Tourbillon Micro-Rotor will retail for EUR 69,000. More subtleties on the Bell & Ross site here .
