Introducing: The Bell & Ross Instrument De Marine Collection, A Trio Of Watches Inspired By Marine Chronometers

BR-X1 Tourbillon Chronograph Instrument de Marine

BR-X1 Tourbillon Chronograph Instrument de Marine

The star of the assortment is the BR-X1 Tourbillon Chronograph Instrument de Marine. It is a skeletonized chronograph with a case made of rosewood and 18k rose gold – the combination is a reference to the brass chronometer timekeepers that were fitted into unique wooden boxes for use on boats. The square case estimates 45mm and the chronograph has two registers, put on the dial up around 1:30 and 10:30. The physically wound type BR-CAL.283 development has a four-day power hold, which is quite extraordinary considering the flying tourbillon noticeably positioned at six o’clock. This watch is important for a restricted release arrangement of only 20 pieces and it retails for $169,000.

BR-X1 Skeleton Chronograph

The BR-X1 Skeleton Chronograph

The second watch in the assortment is the BR-X1 Skeleton Chronograph. This model has a similar 45mm square case, this time made of rosewood, bronze, and titanium. The openworked dial uncovers the programmed type BR-CAL.313 development, which is a bit less complicated than what’s found in the watch above. This is a straightforward two-register chronograph with the date at 6 o’clock. This watch is restricted to 99 pieces and retails for $25,800.

BR 01 Instrument de Marine

The BR 01 Instrument de Marine

The BR 01 Instrument de Marine is the least complex, and to my eye the most engaging, watch in this assortment. It includes a square bronze case that comes in at an incredible 46mm across. The case is additionally complemented by valuable wood and titanium, however they’re both more inconspicuous here than on the two watches above (simply a slim bezel of wood around the edge of the brass case). The white lacquered dial has Roman numerals, blued hands, and a sub-seconds dial. It’s probably more or less work of art. The physically wound development is the type BR-CAL.203, which has a 56-hour power hold. This watch is restricted to 500 pieces and retails for $8,700.
