Despite taking inspiration from stealth fighter jets, this limited edition BR-X1 Military watch from French horologists Bell & Ross doesn’t necessarily fly under the radar — and there’s nothing wrong with that. The 45mm square case is constructed from khaki-colored High-Resistance Titanium (HRT) with hints of black ceramic and rubber inserts that compliment the ultra-luminous green display. It’s powered by an automatic mechanical movement, calibre BR-CAL.313, with 56 jewels and 28,800 Vph. The dial features metal applique Superluminova C3-filled indices with metal skeletonized Superluminova C3-filled hour and minute hands.

The company’s tradition of aircraft instrument-influenced design wasn’t lost on the BR-X1 Military, which is apparent in the skeletonized date window, 30-minute chronograph timer at 9 o’clock, and crosshair-style small seconds, hours, and minutes at 3 o’clock. The military look is made complete with the perforated black rubber strap, black PVD coated steel buckle, and water resistance of 100 meters. One of the 250 high-end skeleton chronographs from their experimental line could be yours for a cool $26,000.

Purchase: $26,000
