This year, Bell & Ross has equipped the high flying BR-X1 with a forged carbon case. This lightweight ultra-resistant material gives the watch a really stealthy look.

Because the marble effect is achieved by mixing the carbon fibers at randomn, each timepiece is in fact completely unique. A high-tech ceramic and rubber bumper have also been added to protect the clean edges of this 45mm chronograph.

The Bell & Ross BR-X1 is powered by BR-CAL.313, a skeleton chronograph movement with a small seconds hand at 3 o’clock, a date dial at 6 o’clock, and a 30-min timer at 9 o’clock.

The latest BR-X1 is a limited edition of 250 pieces priced at $ 22,000 and comes with a woven black rubber strap.
