The art of a crystal treasure
It is surprising to know that sapphire is the strongest raw element on earth after the diamond, due to its high concentration of corundum, an element that gives it a mineral hardness of 9 on the Mohs scale. Its solidity is only comparable to its beauty and transparency, two traits that give it maximum visibility in the movements of the exclusive BR-Cal.285 caliber of the BRX-X1 TOURBILLON SAPPHIRE Limited Edition through a sapphire case measuring 45mm in diameter.
The watch is fitted with a manual spring, and the flying tourbillon features a column-wheeled Mono-pusher chronograph. This watch integrates 282 components, 35 jewels, a 21,600 vph frequency, and a four-day reserve. The sphere features metal sconces and Superluminova insertions. The translucent material of the wristband features a pin and polished steel buckle that perfectly complements the skeleton look. The box is cut from a single block of sapphire, a profoundly difficult process, which makes this watch a limited edition that is only available upon request.
