Bell & Ross – BR-X1 Skeleton Chronograph

Bell & Ross have announced that they will introduce the BR-X1 Skeleton Chronograph, a new timepiece that will launch as part of its collection for the year.

It will be available in two different variations. The first, the BR-X1 Carbone Forgé, will be presented with a black PVD steel finish and black rubber insert. The second model, the BR-X1 Titanium will be produced in steel with a red rubber insert.

They will both be powered by an automatic mechanical BR-CAL.313 movement that beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour with an ‘X’-shaped upper bridge and 56 jewels.

Its chronograph functions include a 30-minute counter at 9 o’clock and central chronograph seconds hand. This is in addition to hours, minutes and small seconds at 3 o’clock and a skeleton date at 6 o’clock.

Each timepiece is presented in a 45 mm case that is complemented by a sapphire crystal display with anti-reflective treatment. It houses a grey-tinted dial that features metal indices with Super-LumiNova coating, which ensures its readability under a variety of lighting conditions. Furthermore, a tachymeter scale is presented on the flange.

The BR-X1 Skeleton Chronograph will be water resistant up to a pressure of 10 bar – the equivalent of 100 meters or 330 feet. It will be available in a limited quantity of only 250 pieces and will be presented on a woven black rubber strap.
