Bell & Ross BR-X1-Skeleton Chronograph-Red Edition, a limited edition of 50 pieces.

Bell & Ross BR-X1-Skeleton Chronograph-Red Edition

The “regular” BR-01 and BR-X1 chronographs up-to-date are not my preferred Bell & Ross watches. This new version though looks visually appealing to me. Have a look at this boutique-only-edition…

 

The Bell & Ross BR-01 chronographs and all its derivates are the brands second pillar besides all the aviation and vintage-like watches. These chronographs are more a kind of ultimate utility watches …

  • Rather nice but I prefer the BR 03-92 in blue ceramic.

    Pricewise, it’s a bit over the top but if they can sell them for such a mark-up, more power to them.

  • Im a massive fan of the B7R range including the 01s – the more traditional instrument type rather than the recent turn coordinator etc….. the BRx1 is an interesting offering and their first in the 01 size for some time. However, at $20,000+ i believe it to be overpriced in this market segment. No doubt at all that the red limited edition is the most attractive variant.
