Watchmaker Bell & Ross, known for its bold and innovative designs, has unveiled its latest masterpiece, the Bell & Ross BR 01 Cyber Skull Sapphire Ice Blue. This timepiece is a limited-edition variation of the Cyber Skull line, which first caught the world’s attention in 2020. For its 2023 release, Bell & Ross has taken the concept to new heights, incorporating a mesmerizing pale blue metallic skull into a clear sapphire case.
The Cyber Skull Sapphire Ice Blue retains the same impressive 43.5mm by 45mm dimensions as its predecessor, boasting a faceted design that embraces its cyber-themed aesthetic. Crafted entirely from clear sapphire, this watch features a polished stainless steel winding crown at 3 o’clock and offers 30 meters of water resistance.
The striking centerpiece of the timepiece is the stylized skull and crossbones assembly that replaces the traditional dial. This skull is made from galvanized brass with a pale blue PVD finish, adding a touch of uniqueness to the watch. Notably, the skull’s lower jaw moves up and down when manually wound, revealing the mainspring barrel.
Powering this extraordinary timepiece is the Bell & Ross BR-CAL.209 manual-wind movement, ensuring precision and accuracy. With its skeletonized design and components cleverly concealed behind the skull, this movement is a work of art in itself.
The Bell & Ross BR 01 Cyber Skull Sapphire Ice Blue is priced at $115,000 and is a limited edition with 25 pieces available. While it shares similarities with the 2021 full sapphire model, the use of PVD-finished brass for the skull sets it apart as a distinctive and collectible addition to any watch enthusiast’s collection. Bell & Ross continues to push the boundaries of watchmaking with this captivating timepiece, combining artistry and technology in a truly unique way.
