The third generation of the Vintage Bell & Ross collection is coming together around three new styles and one iconic aesthetic: the BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-Rotor, the BRS Novarosa, and the BR-O3 have all the audacity of the very first BR. With extreme attention to the movement itself, this watchmaker fused the heart of the timepiece and its elements. The BR-X2 Tourbillon Micro-Rotor comes together around a square, thin movement animated by a BR380 calibre. With this timepiece, Bell & Ross is pushing the simplification of watchmaking constructions a bit further. A strong marker of Bell & Ross’ identity, the square shape has taken on different sizes over the years, from the large BR01 to smaller dimensions with the BR03 and BRS. For the BR-X2 Tourbillon, Bell & Ross chose to enlarge the movement within the same iconic shape – just 57 pieces will be made with the highest of precision. The movement is no longer housed within a traditional watch case, but set within a stainless steel frame as thin as the movement itself that is then attached to the wrist with a grey alligator leather bracelet.
The BRS Novarosa takes inspiration from the pink shades of Superovas. From this dramatic death of stars is released a cloud effect of shiny dust so powerful that it reflects a bright pink with the same intensity as that of an entire galaxy. This aesthetic power is harnessed in the Novarosa with Bell & Ross’ signature curves. Decorated with sunny reflections, but also imagined for daily use, the Novarosa steel case is composed with the same lines as aeronautics equipment. A pure and refined aspect takes on a more precious dimension in a version encrusted with 66 diamonds on the bezel. For the first time with Bell & Ross, the Novarosa collection is equipped with a Milanese mesh bracelet – a particularly alluring technique of knitting steel threads.
Finally, the BR03-92 Horolum and BR03-92 Horograph prove that certain journeys require Bell & Ross style. The Horograph is made to inform the traveler with the greatest clarity and precision possible. Its elaborate graphicness responds with class to a time display similar to that of airport clocks, in a limited edition of only 500 pieces. The Horolum evokes light and readability. A Superluminova treatment is incorporated to facilitate reading night and day alike. On the watch’s dial, the same color as an airport runway is used. This intense green light is made to light up the darkness… an ideal watch for night owls.
