Bell & Ross has decided to impress us all with not one, but two new exquisite versions of the brand’s popular BR-X1, both of them called Instrument de Marine Chrono and looking absolutely incredible.
Limited to only 20 units, the Bell & Ross BR-X1 Tourbillon Instrument de Marine Chrono shows off a 45 mm 18kt rose gold and wooden case, alongside double AR-coated sapphire crystals. Getting wet won’t be an issue with this timepiece, considering the watch could handle 100-meter deep waters.
This timekeeping marvel is put in motion by the Swiss manual-wind Bell & Ross in-house caliber 283, backed by a 4-day power reserve, while the dial shows off a grey-tinted sapphire crystal, with a brown alligator leather strap, featuring an 18kt rose gold pin buckle that acts as a finishing touch.
On the other hand, you could go for the Bell & Ross BR-X1 Instrument de Marine Chrono, that will be produced in a limited run of 99 units. The case is similar to the tourbillon version, both in terms of aesthetics and water resistance, but of course, you won’t be getting the tourbillon awesomeness this time.
Movement is provided by the Swiss automatic Bell & Ross caliber 313, which means a power reserve of 48 hours, while the dial is also a grey-tinted sapphire crystal. Aiding this watch to adorn your wrist is a brown alligator leather strap with a bronze pin buckle. Which one do you like?
