The Bell & Ross latest BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-Rotor watch is going extreme into the simplification of the watchmaking process.
The watch was unveiled at a special preview event held at the spanking new and eco-friendly Element Hotel, where the luxury watch brand also announced its month-long lifestyle pop-up store in collaboration with Cortina Watches at Suria KLCC.
The pop-up store will display an exhibition showcasing the BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-Rotor along with the full collection of the BR-X1 that comes with a high-tech chronograph and a sporty design making it robust as well as sophisticated.
Limited to only 99 pieces worldwide, the next generation BR-X2’s movement is designed and manufactured to be square and thin- 36mm by 36mm with a height as low as 4.05mm - and is called the caliber BR380. Unlike conventional watches, the BR-X2 is not housed in a traditional watch case instead, it is framed inside a holder which is then closed with two sapphire plates, revealing the brilliant mechanism within. The entire timepiece is built around the movement, which is the masterpiece of the watch.
The watch is further designed with a flying tourbillon at 6’ o clock, a grey alligator strap and mobile parts that rotate on 31 ruby jewels - making it a pride on the wrist of the owner.
Watch enthusiasts, head to the Bell & Ross pop-up store located at level 1 (Lot no 106 A), Suria KLCC until August 31, 2017, for a glimpse at the brilliance of the luxury Swiss watch makers.
