X factor is all around us. It represents an unknown number in math equations. In psychology, it’s a factor that impels one to obtain the success or go beyond the limits. It’s also common in aerospace industry, for example, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) names most of test items“X”projects. It has opportunities to show its talents in the watchmaking industry. Bell & Ross has named its innovative wristwatches “X” theme since 2014. To 2017, the new BR-X2 conveys the innovative, creative and high-performance value concept of the Bell & Ross brand. “X”-themed Bell & Ross watch conveys double meaning.
With masculine style, the BR-X1 Black Titanium watch made its appearance in 2014, symbolizing the first step to a stage filled with experimental and innovative spirit. Combining bold creativity and sport style, Bell & Ross BR-X1 Black Titanium watch features skeleton chronograph movement and high-tech square watch case fusing titanium, ceramic and black rubber. It’s two years later that the BR-X1 Tourbillon Sapphire watch created a real revolution. Its square watch case cropped and made from a whole sapphire brings out clean and transparent temperament. The model established a direct connection between High-grade watch and Grand sophisticated watch. The BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-Rotor opened a new chapter for Bell & Ross Experimental collection.
If only three words are used to define the model, they must be case, movement and dial. It’s hard to get rid of any of the three elements. The real innovation lies precisely in questioning traditions, challenging the impossible and exploring new paths. That embodies all-in-one-shaped watch case and movement. When steel and sapphire watch case was designed, a Utopia-style idea occurred to Creative director Bruno Belamich. The case and the movement are merged into the same part so that the case disappears and only the movement is visible.
The basic concept of BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-Rotor is that BR-CAL.380 developed independently by Bell & Ross is set between twp parts of sapphire watch case. The design shows invisible transparent watch case and skeleton movement. To highlight pure aesthetic and professional technology, designers choose a simple and high-performance theme. Thanks for the flying tourbillon at 6 O’clock counteracting the influence from gravity, hour and minute hands go around the skeleton dial precisely. 42.5mm * 8.9mm watch case benefits from automatic Micro-rotor.
Bell & Ross builds its status in High Timepiece for BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-rotor. Limited to 99 pieces, Bell & Ross BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-rotor Men’s Watch brings the special wearing experience that a movement is on your wrist for those who can appreciate its beauty.
