BELL & ROSS
October 01, 2018
Bell & Ross has unveiled its new BR-X1 Military, a high-end chronograph with an aesthetic designed to mimic stealth fighter planes, with a matte khaki high resistance titanium (HRT) case and ultra-luminous green display. Always at the cutting edge of technical advances, particularly innovation, with its roots in the military and aerospace industries, Bell & Ross has used a lightweight and ultra resilient material for its BR-X1 hypersonic: High Resistance Titanium (HRT). This material is obtained using a new process which alters the titanium, making it even more hard-wearing and giving it this signature khaki. With its luxury sporty look, the BR-X1 Military is a cuttingedge watch, fully armoured and sophisticated. This skeleton chronograph, driven by an exceptional movement, is lightweight yet resilient. The X-shaped upper bridge features a black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating, the signature of the Bell & Ross Experimental line. The circular opening on the High Resistance Titanium (HRT) case back allows the beating heart of the balance to be admired.
Made from tinted sapphire crystal, the dial offers a fully transparent window onto this rare movement. Filled with SuperLuminova®C3, the faceted hands and applique indexes ensure optimal legibility during the day and at night. The central hour and minute hands are read traditionally, while the small second 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 aluminium disc resembling the blades of a turbine. Essential for calculating speeds, the tachymeter scale appears on the khaki flange. The model is equipped with a new perforated rubber strap for enhanced comfort.
Lightweight, hard-wearing, ergonomic and ultra-modern, the BR-X1 Military, available in a limited edition of 250 pieces, will delight fans of instruments designed for extremes.
