As iconic as difficult to work with, sapphire is the embodiment of invisibility: a paradox of solidity and visual transparency. Scientists –who call it corundum– know it as the second hardest material on Earth after diamond, almost impossible to scratch.
The first of these three exclusive pieces is black –the signature color of the Bell & Ross style since its creation and a reference to aircraft instruments. It offers the purest of contrasts with the transparent sapphire case and the translucent bracelet. The rubies in the tourbillon cage are the only touch of extravagance in this landscape of sublime purity.
The hour counter is off-centered and positioned above the barrel for releasing the tourbillon’s cage and further revealing the mechanical beauty of the movement. Bell & Ross has designed a flying tourbillon that seems to float in weightlessness. This gives the powerful timepiece even more magic. Heir to traditional watchmaking techniques, but highly contemporary in its design and finishes, the work of the skeleton reduces mechanics to the essential for the splendor of translucency.
