The resolutely futuristic-looking BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-Rotor watch impresses by its design and its extremely technical nature. Forget the case and dial, this model is focused firmly on essentials : the movement. Comprising 257 handassembled parts, the latter is mounted on a square steel mainplate, itself protected on either side by two sapphire blocks – all secured by four screws – a distinctive feature of Bell & Ross watches in reference to its aeronautical DNA. This totally revolutionary, unique and minimalist construction enables the watch owner to plunge into the heart of the sophisticated mechanism of Caliber BR380. Enthroned at the center of this hightech décor, the majestic flying tourbillon literally draws the gaze. The BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-Rotor undoubtedly celebrates the love match between contemporary Fine Watchmaking and the signature Bell & Ross design codes.
