Bell & Ross - BR-X1 White Hawk & BR-X1 Tourbillon White Hawk

Bell & Ross’ latest aeronautical watch line, the BR-X1 White Hawk offers two stunning pilot watches : BR-X1 White Hawk & BR-X1 Tourbillon White Hawk.  Produced in limited editions, these two models, both feature revolutionary construction and sophisticated watchmaking finishes, take inspiration from the colors of private jets.
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.
The BR-X1 White Hawk is limited to 250 pieces where as the  BR-X1 Tourbillon White Hawk is available in an ultra-limited edition of 20 pieces only.
