This past summer, Bell & Ross unveiled an automotive-inspired timepiece that paid homage to the avant-garde AeroGT concept. With the year coming to an end, the watch manufacturer serves up another impressive new creation: the BR-X1 Skeleton Tourbillon Sapphire.

Motivated to tackle the “challenge of transparency” in the most extreme sense, Bell & Ross has crafted a see-through timepiece with a sapphire case that functions almost like an X-ray machine. With just one detailed inspection, consumers should be able to see all the moving parts of the BR-X1 Skeleton Tourbillon Sapphire and gain a better understanding of its sophisticated assembly. As Bell & Ross eloquently puts it, this watch “reduces mechanics to the essential for the splendor of translucency” and “succeeds in unveiling the secrets of time.”

Limited to only 8 models, the BR-X1 Skeleton Tourbillon Sapphire can be be viewed above. For more unique watches, read up on how salvaged Ford Mustangs are being used for high-end timepieces.
