Bell & Ross BR Minuteur Tourbillon Watch
The Tourbillon, the most noble of complications dressed in gold, compensates the differences in precision due to the earth’s pull. Priority was given to reading the hour functions in this luxurious model. An independent small second counter and a three-day power reserve complete the time information.
The timer on the left of the dial is a second, dual scale timepiece (sixty and ten divisions) that measures time in hours and minuted from a chosen moment. This stand-alone timer is fitted with a Flyback, a system for resetting to zero and quickly relaunching the measurement.
The Flyback optimizes the precision and rapidity in measuring several successive times.
Only 30 pieces were created in this new design with further information available through the official Bell & Ross website.
