Watch: BR-X1 from Bell & Ross

SPORTY SQUARE. To truly stand out in any industry requires determination and innovation. French brand Bell & Ross has got both qualities in the bag, and this year it kicked things up a notch with the BR-X1


Formally launched last year, this new line exemplifies a sportier and more sophisticated take on the square-cased BR watches. The 2015 version of BR-X1 highlights the use of Carbone Forgé (forged carbon) for the watchcase. Lightweight and ultra-scratch-resistant, the result is nothing short of alluring. There is a “marbling” effect on the watch case’s surface that is visually appealing, and, to protect this beautiful piece, a rubber layer covers all sides of the 45mm case.
