Introducing the Bell & Ross BR 01 Burning Skull
Seven years after unveiling the first BR 01 featuring a skull, Bell & Ross is raising the Jolly Roger back up on this watch’s case and dial. The Parisian brand took inspiration from the crest on World War II paratrooper uniforms to design the BR 01 Burning Skull whose case is engraved and lacquered with black flames and symbols of life and death (rose, heart, scythe, hourglass).
The latter has a 46mm steel case with crossbones; the dial is in the shape of a skull. It houses the self-winding BR-CAL.302 calibre that brings to life the time functions and 42-hour power reserve.
The dial coated in black Super-LumiNova® features an embossed metal skull. A pair of unusual hands burst from between the eye sockets: a dagger for the hours and a sabre for the minutes.
Price: 7,200 CHF (limited edition – 500 available)
