Bell & Ross // Launch of the new BR-X1 WHITE HAWK Line

Bell & Ross, the ultimate reference in aeronautical watches, presents its BR-X1 White Hawk line. Its name in French, Faucon Blanc, evokes dreams and travels. These two models with sophisticated watchmaking finishes take inspiration from the colors of private jets.

The excellence of business aircrafts is the result of innovative technologies taken from the design and manufacture processes of fighter jets. The BR-X1 and the BR-X1 Tourbillon White Hawk are totally revolutionary in their construction. These precious measuring instruments combine Bell & Ross’ extremely virile aesthetic codes with the technical refinement of its high-end watchmaking.

On these models, the grade 5 titanium cases are covered with a white ceramic «belt». Titanium is micro-blasted and ceramic is matte to avoid reflections caused by light. The white and grey of the case depict the colors of the most beautiful private jets. The push buttons are made of high-tech ceramic with rubber inserts to optimize their grip and strength. A rubber button grip insert is also built into the case at 9 o’clock to enhance the activation of the chronograph’s functions and a red rim highlights them for optimal readability. This fundamental complication enables short time measurements and is an indispensable tool for air navigation.

Ultra-masculine, the framework of these new generation all-terrain timepieces provides a sophisticated and contemporary expression thanks to its singular color range and pioneering design that reveal Bell & Ross’ expertise.
