Avant-garde designs are plentiful when it comes to luxury watches. However, there are instances wherein the approach becomes too aggressive. It reaches to the point that it becomes unwieldy for people who prefer a more conventional appeal. As much as we appreciate these often unorthodox masterpieces, we can’t help but swoon over a particular understated but elegant timepiece—the Bell & Ross BR-X2 Skeleton Tourbillon Micro Rotor watch.
What immediately caught our attention was the stainless steel and sapphire construction of its case. The skeletonized dial flaunts the watch’s complications such as the intricate tourbillion that steadily ticks away. The sloping edges of each crystal panel angle perfectly to seamlessly blend with the metal. The assembly measures 42.5 mm in diameter and only 9 mm thick. It pairs nicely with a grey alligator strap alongside a double-trigger folding clasp.
A clear view of its case reveals a micro-rotor that powers its BR-CAL.381 automatic movement. it is machined from Reconit 18, an alloy that contains 95% tungsten. The dial’s hands and indices feature Super-LumiNova applications that help you see the time in low light conditions. Upon closer inspection, you can make out that each interlocking piece inside sports meticulous beveling for that extra detail. Overall, the Bell & Ross BR-X2 Skeleton Tourbillon Micro Rotor is one handsome timepiece that we would love to grace our wrists.Check it out here
