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 Bell & Ross BR 05 SKELETON Collection adorns the challenge of transparency. Reflecting the finest Haute Horlogerie craftsmanship, the skeleton version of the BR 05 highlights the architectural modern design of Bell & Ross’ latest urban collection.
