From the BR-X1 to the BR-X1 Tourbillon

The BR-X1, a high-tech chronograph with sporty looks, which is as robust as it is sophisticated, marked the arrival of a new Bell & Ross line and the beginning of a whole new chapter in the saga of the brand. Revolutionary in its design and also inspired by aeronautical flight instruments, the BR-X1 line expands with a new exceptional Haute Horlogerie version: the BR-X1 Chronograph Tourbillon. This precious measuring instrument combines the extremely virile aesthetic codes of the brand with the technical refinement of Bell & Ross’ Haute Horlogerie.

An armoured, ingenious, muscular and technical watch, the BR-X1 has always stood out thanks to the innovative design of its 45 mm multi-material case. The functional, non-indexed screws, the single-piece structure of the case and the rocker pushers for the chronograph functions were designed to contribute to the sturdiness and ergonomy of the watch. A «thumb rest» insert is integrated at nine o’clock for optimised handling when activating the chronograph functions. The ultra masculine and revolutionary architecture of this new generation go-anywhere timepiece allowed for infinite combinations in the design phase opening up a vast potential for creativity. The new BR-X1 Chronograph Tourbillon is the ultimate symbol of Bell & Ross’ watchmaking expertise and the first chapter of an evolution that combines grand complication and faithfulness to the aeronautical inspiration that the brand cherishes.
