Bell & Ross Skeleton Tourbillon Features Sapphire Case

French luxury watchmakers Bell & Ross, best known for their military and aviation-themed timepieces, has created an eye-catching new watch featuring a case made entirely from sapphire.

Called the BR-X1 Tourbillon Sapphire, the watch is the latest addition to the brand’s BR-X “Experimental” collection and builds on the success of its recently unveiled $500,000 transparent timepiece.

The BR-X1 Tourbillon Sapphire carries the brand’s core design language and has the same square 45mm case, screwed together at each of the four corners, but made entirely out of sapphire.

It uses the BR-X1 case assembled from five hand-carved sapphire blocks and comes with a manually-wound skeleton movement with its hour and minute hands restricted  to the upper 12:00 region of the dial.

Other notable features include a translucent rubber strap and a maximum power reserve of 100 hours.

Only eight pieces of the Bell & Ross BR-X1 Skeleton Tourbillon Sapphire have been produced, each priced at $385,000.

Bell & Ross was founded in 1992 by Bruno Belamich and Carlos A. Rosillo.
