When designers come up with new concepts, inspiration can come from a lot of sources. There are some who consider nature as their muse, but some prefer to get their ideas from man-made sources. We just love how some experts draw influences from military machinery to create stylish pieces of mechanical art. Therefore, as the name suggests, the Bell & Ross BR-X1 Military watch aggressively flaunts a design that anyone from the armed forces would be proud to show off.
With only to 250 pieces in production, the chronograph sports a 45mm high-resistance titanium case and colors in khaki for that extra tactical touch. Meanwhile, Other materials used in its construction include black ceramic and rubber inserts as listed by the product page. The push buttons function as rockers and actually add a nifty tactile touch to the watch. Its 100-meter water resistance ensures that the timepiece can take a beating and come out smiling.
The case back is somewhat plain, except maybe for the tinted sapphire crystal window that gives us a glimpse of the rotor. Its skeletonized dial is protected under a layer of sapphire that’s been treated with an anti-reflective coating. Additionally, the Superluminova applique on the metal hands and indices improve visibility in low-light conditions. The Bell & Ross BR-X1 Military showcases a BR-CAL.313 automatic mechanical movement. The perforated black rubber strap is secured comfortably on your wrist via a PVD-coated stainless steel pin buckle.
