Bell & Ross Unveil Their $200,000 BR-X1 Tourbillon Chronograph

A Renault Sport special like no other.

What’s life without a glimpse of the pointier end of horology? At Baselworld this year Bell & Ross presented four new chronograph models under the R.S. 19 Collection with varying price entry points.

Whilst our personal favourite is the standard BR-X1, it’s this particular BR-X1 Tourbillon Chronograph that will really get people talking. At US$194,000 it’s no drop in the ocean. The BR-X1 Tourbillon Chronograph essentially takes the distinctive framework of the BR-X1 and amps it up with a hand-winding mechanical flying tourbillon calibre. That’s a big ask considering the standard BR-X1 retails in the region of US$21,500.

Nonetheless the movement you’re getting is still a work of art complete with a skeletonised dial, titanium case and an exclusivity which sees just 20 pieces available worldwide.
