First Look: BR 01 Cyber Skull Sapphire Only Watch!

October 13, 2021

Will be exhibited at Christie’s, Dubai

Among the watch manufacturers, Bell & Ross supports the Only Watch project and its incredible fundraising efforts in the fight against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy . The brand’s contribution takes the form of an exclusive one-off version of its recent BR 01 Cyber Skull model: the BR 01 Cyber Skull Sapphire Only Watch. For its 9th edition, the biennial auction of unique timepieces sold for the benefit of research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy will take place on Saturday 6 November 2021, in Geneva. Christie’s remains the auctioneer of choice under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco.

For this bespoke version of the Cyber Skull, Bell & Ross used the orange color to provide its owner with a unique piece for its wrist. Made of transparent sapphire, the Skull dial was metallized on the back that has a smooth side to give this orange effect. Orange is the ultimate color for aeronautical instrumentation due to its high level of legibility and capacity to make essential information stand out from contrast. It is also the emblematic color code of Only Watch, which is used on its logo. The back of the watch also features a special engraving for Only Watch.

The Bell & Ross BR 01 Cyber Skull Sapphire Only Watch will be exhibited in Dubai. The exhibit will be hosted by Christie’s and Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, at Christie’s, Gate Village, Building 5, Podium level, DIFC, Dubai, from 10 am – 7 pm, from 30th September – 3rd October 2021.
