In 2009, Bell & Ross made a lasting impression by breaking with traditional watchmaking codes for its very first BR 01 «Skull». A remarkable version was unveiled in 2015, in the form of the BR 01 SKULL BRONZE. And the story of the now famous Bell & Ross skull has taken yet another twist with the revelation of an extraordinary new face. This brand new version is a celebration of military symbolism and the art of tattooing.
BR 01 SKULL
BR 01 BURNING SKULL
The realism of the skull in the centre of the «tattoo» is reinforced by the design of the dial on two levels, which brings a depth to the visual effect. The skull is created from stamped metal, a process traditionally used for producing coins and medals, and which creates a true relief. The black SuperLuminova covering the dial face further accentuates the skull, intensifying its defiant stare.
The military symbolism and exceptional craftsmanship of this watch make it truly one of a kind. The bellicose character and exquisite workmanship of the BR 01 BURNING SKULL add a fiery aura to the talismanic spirit of the original Skull model. The watch is available in a limited edition of 500 pieces, and will delight collectors and fans of idiosyncratic timepieces.
