BR-X1 Carbone Forgé®
A tribute to the Bell X-1, the first American experimental plane with a rocket engine to break the sound barrier (Mach 1, 1224 km/h) in 1947.
In 2014 Bell & Ross pushed the boundaries of innovation even further by launching its fifth-generation watch.
Its name? The BR-X1.
Its special features? A high-end chronograph with a resolutely sporty design and sophisticated haute horlogerie finishes.
Lightweight, strong and ergonomic
To meet watchmaking quality criteria, the engineers have reworked the carbon fibres and the composition of the resin.
The result is a non-porous, water-resistant single-unit case with clean edges, in a deep black, which is the colour of the carbon fibres.
The marbled appearance of each piece is unique thanks to the random way the carbon fibres are mixed. The matt finish reduces reflection for better legibility, and makes it soft to the touch.
Function and complication
The chronograph is the complication par excellence in aviation. It can measure short periods of time and has become an essential tool in navigation. It is for these reasons that the chronograph has always enjoyed a special place among the aviation watch specialists at Bell & Ross.
It is only natural that their latest creation –the BR-X1– is not just any chronograph. Its rare skeleton chronograph movement is an exceptional motor combining strength and extreme lightness.
Structured in the shape of an “X”, its upper bridge (treated with black DLC) reads like its signature. “X” is the code name that refers to NASA’s experimental projects, and which gives the watch its name: the BR-X1.
