The BR 01 CYBER SKULL SAPPHIRE ICE BLUE is the newest watch in the BR 01 Cyber Skull series, and it’s a unique and remarkable timepiece. The skull motif has long been associated in horology and art with philosophical contemplations on vanity entwined with observations on the passage of time, life, and death. This specific skull is an homage to the exclusive groups for which Bell & Ross creates fine clocks. When it comes to audacity, the color blue is the clear winner. Throughout history, the meaning of blue has changed and currently connotes ideas of purity and nature. This one-of-a-kind creation has a center dial that is painstakingly carved in blue PVD and galvanized brass, featuring the bold and unusual shade of fresh ice blue—a genuine representation of the BR 01 CYBER SKULL SAPPHIRE ICE BLUE.
Bell & Ross chose a 45 mm casing that is entirely transparent and water-resistant up to 30 meters, including the rear, to capture the alluring spirit of the skull. This translucent casing, which houses the mechanical marvel within, is a monument to modern mastery in exquisite watchmaking. Sapphire is a high-tech composite material that approaches diamond’s toughness and scratch resistance. Transparency turns into a display case showcasing the skill required to make watches this complex. Bell & Ross completes the watch with a translucent, soft silicone strap held in place by a polished, satin-finished steel pin clasp, creating a harmonious visual composition on the wrist. With a production run of only 25, this incredible watch—the BR 01 CYBER SKULL SAPPHIRE ICE BLUE—defines exclusivity.
