Bell & Ross have gone transparent with their latest timepiece launch, a part of the brand's Basel initiative, presenting the enticing BR-X1 Skeleton Tourbillon Sapphire.

Here, we find the main plate and the bridges designed with the familiar X-Shape, iconic to the BRX1 family. Above the enlarged barrel, you will then find off-centered hour and minute hands, as the wheel, outfitted with a single ruby, rotates around a stainless steel axle. The flying tourbillon then rests at the same level as the dial.

The watch's recesses have been finished with significant sandblasting, while the main plate and the bridges note a grey Ruthenium galvanic treatment. The case has been cut from five blocks of pure corindon, the second hardest material on earth, which is the physical name of sapphire and ruby.

Lastly, thanks to the transparent design, the skeleton tourbillon cage is viewable from virtually every angle.

For more on the $385,000 USD BR-X1 Skeleton Tourbillon Sapphire, follow over to Bell & Ross.

In other watch news, Supreme and Rolex could be releasing a collab next year.
