Bell & Ross BR-X1 Skeleton Tourbillon Sapphire Watch

It’s not the time a wristwatch tells, it’s how it tells it. Introducing the Bell & Ross BR-X1 Skeleton Tourbillon Sapphire entirely out of sapphire crystal.

This watch’s translucent 45mm sapphire crystal case boasts a fully exposed calibre BR-CAL.288 hand wound skeleton tourbillon movement with a 100 hour power reserve. That mechanism drives two Superluminova painted hands around the skeleton dial located at 12 o’clock position while the watch’s main attraction, the flying tourbillon complication, is located directly below the main dial at the 6 o’clock mark. To keep with the translucent styling, Bell & Ross attached the anti-reflective sapphire crystal case to a see-through rubber strap. Only 8 pieces will ever be produced. Just don’t misplace it – it may blend in a little too well.

Purchase: $385,000
