Bell & Ross

Bell & Ross watch company was started in 1992 by two French dudes in Switzerland. I'm a huge fan of these huge, basic, and stylish watches.

BR 01-94 46mm Orange
BR 01-92 Pink Gold and Carbon
BR 01-92 Carbon

BR 01 Tourbillion.
Tourbillion means that the watch movements are mounted in a rotating cage, as to negate the effects of gravity.
Modern implementations typically allow the tourbillon to be seen through a window in the watch face. In addition to enhancing the charm of the piece, the tourbillon can act as a second hand for some watches as it generally rotates once per minute.
here is a youtube video describing how a tourbillon works.

  1. It's a shame those suckers are $3K - $5K... Those first two are ultra-slick.
