For Only Watch 2011, Bell & Ross has created the BR01 Casino. The dial is made up of three rotating concentric circles in pink gold. And yes, it does tell the time. Have you worked out how? We’ll tell you inside. The 46mm diameter case is pink gold and PVD, and the roulette-themed display is powered by an automatic ETA 2892-based movement.
So what time is it? 10:10 of course. The black-on-white “0” on the outer ring represents the hours, and the small white roulette ball on the center ring denotes the minutes. The central disk bearing the spinner makes one revolution per minute and so represents the seconds.
The “wish price” on this piece is 20,000 to 40,000 euros, and should you be the lucky bidder, your unique Casino will be delivered in a fitted box with certificate.
The Only Watch 2011 charity auction will take place on September 23 at the Monaco Yacht Show. Forty of the world’s leading luxury wristwatch manufacturers are donating unique and one-of-a-kind timepieces, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to combat Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. The auction will be conducted by Antiquorum. Learn more at www.OnlyWatch.com.
