The X Factor

Shrouded in mystery, the X Factor is everywhere. In the aerospace industry, “X” is used to designate NASA’s most experimental projects. And it also has a place in watchmaking: since 2014, the letter “X” has been accompanying the range of experimental watches produced by Bell & Ross

The square BR-CAL.380 manufacture caliber is designed and developed entirely by Bell & Ross

In concrete terms, the design of the BR-X2 implies wearing the movement directly on the wrist. The square BR-CAL.380 manufacture caliber, designed and developed entirely by Bell & Ross, is set between two sapphire crystal plates, joined at the sides by a narrow band of steel machined as a single piece, ensuring unrestricted visibility. This makes the case virtually invisible, and the skeleton dial does the same, showcasing the movement.

To highlight the aesthetic purity and the technical expertise, the designers of the BR-X2 have opted for both simplicity and performance. This two-hand watch displays the hours and minutes with exceptional precision thanks to a flying tourbillon that compensates for the gravitational pull of the earth.

Simplicity, yes; but also elegance and restraint, thanks to its modest dimensions (42.5 mm square) and delicacy, made possible by the extra-thin 4.05 mm movement, with automatic winding provided by a micro-rotor.

With the bold, modern design of the BR-X2 that pushes the very limits of creativity, Bell & Ross positions itself, once again, as one of the most innovative Haute Horlogerie brands. This highly exclusive watch, will only be available to 99 cultivated connoisseurs, offering them the unique experience of wearing a watch movement on their wrist.
