Video: Bell&Ross BR-X1 Military
We got our hands on the new Bell&Ross BR-X1 Military, Ref. BRX1-CE-TI-MIL. The BR-X1 Collection is impressive and goes up to tourbillion models and also diamonds. The BR-X1 Military stands out with its seriousness. The watch materials and look makes it deserve its name.
The BR-X1 Military is powered by BR-CAL.313, a heavily modified base ETA 2892 with a Dubois-Depraz chronograph module. The pushers’ construction might be, at first, intriguing, but are easy to use and have a nice feedback.
The watch looks and feels fabulous on the wrist. There are many details to be seen on the case construction and dial. The BR-X1 Military has a nice luminescent appearance in the dark.
