The movement developed and manufactured for the BRX2 is square and thin, it is called the caliber BR380. With this time piece, Bell & Ross is going extreme into the simplification of watchmaking construction.
The square shape is a strong marker of Bell & Ross identity. Over time, the square shape has been extended from large size BR01 to smaller dimensions with BR03 and BRS, as well as extreme versions of BRX1 chronographs.
So far, Haute Horlogerie calibers have been housed In BR01 and BRX1 time pieces: Regulator tourbillon and Grand
Minuteur Tourbillon in BR01, Skeleton Chronograph Tourbillon in BR-X1. For BR-X2 Concept, we decided to follow one simple guideline: magnifying the movement in the iconic Bell & Ross square shape.
