With its micro-rotor and ampersand-adorned flying tourbillon, the BR X2 was a step nearer to this newest invention not least since it was something of a sapphire sandwich. The newest Bell & Ross Replica Watches Paypal Replica BR-X1 Skeleton Tourbillon Sapphire is like a functional hybrid of the two — but with a twist, as it employs the BR-X1 case constructed out of five, very closely carved sapphire blocks.The Bell & Ross BR-X1 Skeleton Tourbillon Sapphire is a whole hell of a long way to get a brand whose humble beginnings began with tool watches (remember B&R’s watches was manufactured by German tool watch master Sinn), but a journey that’s gotten much more impressive as the Experimental line continues to find interesting ways to visually and technologically push the envelope. Sapphire crystal is less or more scratch-proof, but its hardness is now especially hard to utilize in anything other than very simple shapes. Technology and techniques have significantly improved in the last several years, however, with more fully sapphire-cased watches, and even costs for them starting to come down such as with the Hublot Big Bang UNICO Sapphire (hands-on) – though they tend to stay more infrequent and expensive even than precious metal instance watches.
A year ago, Bell & Ross introduced the third generation of its Vintage family, a line that references elements from hugely coveted but unfortunately rare military-issue watches from the second half of the 20th century. The latest series retains the large Arabic numbers but with smaller and slimmer cases, while spawning several thematic variations such as the Bellytanker and Garde-Côtes.
Now, way ahead of Baselworld 2018, Bell & Ross has unveiled the BR-V2 Steel Heritage – a two-piece range that continues to mine the vintage-inspired wave with a couple of nuanced tweaks.
Both the BR V2-92 and the BR V2-94 Steel Heritage feature a colour palette that borrows heavily from vintage dive watches, although Bell & Ross’ heritage is strongest with military aviation watches. They have black dials with sand-coloured Super-Luminova that recalls the colour of aged tritium.
The second retro element is the contrasting red depth rating on the dial – something most associated with the Rolex “Red” Submariner.
And more unusually, the Steel Heritage is available with a rubber strap moulded with a crosshatch motif that recalls the “Tropic” rubber straps of the 1960s that were similar but perforated.
Along with domed sapphire crystals, both Steel Heritage watches feature bi-directional rotating bezels, screw-down casebacks and crowns with protectors, blurring the lines between diving and aviation timepieces.
The BR V2-92 Steel Heritage measures 41mm in diameter and is powered by the BR-CAL.302, which is a Sellita SW300 that’s visible through its sapphire caseback.
Also measuring 41mm, the BR V2-94 Steel Heritage is a bi-compax chronograph with screw-down pushers. It is powered by the BR-CAL.301, which is an ETA 2892 with a Dubois-Depraz chronograph module on top.

The BRV2-92 Steel Heritage costs US$2900 on rubber strap and US$3200 on bracelet. And the BRV2-94 Steel Heritage is US$4300 on rubber strap and US$4600 on bracelet.
