The 45mm iconic circle in a square case by Bell & Ross was made of titanium and ceramic with rubber inserts. Its caseback is almost completely solid, except for a small opening in tinted sapphire crystal, centered on the balance. Although you still won’t get a good look at the movement, since the view is blocked by the Ampersand logo engraved on the sapphire crystal.
Equipped with two rocker push-buttons on the right side of the case to activate the chronograph functions and a setting-crown in between them. A titanium bezel with an external ring in black ceramic; using the ceramic as bumpers to protect the corners of the case and lugs. The chronograph pushers and the crown also have a protective layer of black rubber. Covered by an anti-reflective sapphire crystal that also assists with water-resistance on this watch being able to reach up to 100 meters (330 feet).
Time is exhibited on a skeletonized grey-tinted sapphire crystal with metal applique hour index markers, followed by a series of smaller white minute index markers. Plus a tachymeter that can be seen after that circling the dial, nearing the bezel.
There are two sub-dials: a sub-seconds at the 3 o’clock position and a 30-minute counter at the 9 o’clock position. The metal skeleton hour and minute hands, plus the hour index markers, have all been attributed with Superluminova®, for an enhanced legibility. Also includes a date aperture at the 6 o’clock position.
As we glance at this watch something seems unusual and as we zoom in, that and other small nuances begin to pop out. Like the fact that the date aperture is also skeletonized and we can get a look thru it. Or, more noticeable is the “X”-shaped upper bridge seen on the skeletonized dial. A sort of treasure map marking the user gets to carry around, as if to say: where ever this timepiece goes marks the “spot”.
