Since its introduction to the BR 05 collection in 2019, the BR 05 Skeleton has become a Bell & Ross icon. The BR 05 Skeleton carries the popular design DNA of the BR 05 collection featuring the instantly recognisable “round within the square” case and integrated bracelet.
This year, the BR 05 Skeleton has received a re-fresh in a rich, golden hue.
The 40mm diametre steel case features the iconic square case design. The flat sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment is held by the satin-brushed steel bezel, which is fixed by four polished steel slotted screws that ensure water resistance up to 100 metres. The case-back is fitted with an anti-reflective sapphire crystal allowing the rear of the movement to be seen, with a particular emphasis on the 360° oscillating weight. This is a fine example of Bell & Ross craftsmanship and design, as the whole timepiece does not exceed 5.45mm in thickness.
To maximise the readability, the large numerals, a household feature of Bell & Ross watches, give way to baton-shaped applique golden indexes. The skeletonised baton-shaped hands are coated with Grade X1 White 10 Super- LumiNova®, a substance with green luminescent emissions.
The hero of this new Skeleton is the movement that appears transparently under the amber-toned dial. In line with the creative signature of Bell & Ross, the movement departs from traditional baroque and decorative styles in favour of a linear and geometric approach.
“We started from a good movement to create a beautiful movement”, states Bruno Belamich, co-founder and Creative Director of Bell & Ross, detailing the finishes of the self-winding Swiss Made calibre BR-CAL.322.
The classic Bell & Ross integrated bracelet allows the BR 05 Skeleton Golden to be presented either with a steel bracelet - the finishes of which are in direct harmony with the alternating polished and satin-brushed surfaces of the case, and fitted with a folding clasp - or with a rubber strap whose amber colour blends with the golden hue of the dial.
The BR 05 Skeleton Golden boasts a minimalist elegance to fit into the day-to-day modern lifestyle. This new timepiece is available in a limited edition of 500 pieces.
