Bell & Ross To Launch Casino Timepiece in Monaco

By P. Joseph

French luxury watchmaker Bell & Ross are set to unveil a unique, limited-edition timepiece at the high-profile ONLY WATCH charity auction in Monaco later this month.

Taking place during the Monaco Yacht Show, the charity auction is designed to raise money for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, with many of the world’s most famous watch brands creating and donating a special timepiece for the event.

Bell & Ross’s contribution to the charity gala, which is now into its fourth year, is the BR01 Casino Pink Gold timepiece. Made in homage to the famous Casino of Monaco, where the Only Watch auction will take place, the watch includes a miniature roulette wheel in the centre.

The timepiece also features a clever disk display system, with a ‘0’ numeral on the outside disk displaying the hours and the small roulette ball on the middle disk indicating the minutes. The centre of the roulette turns at the rhythm of the seconds.

Other notable elements include a black square case, a pink gold bezel and dial finish, and a stylishly designed black strap.

Following the charity auction, the BR01 Casino timepiece will be introduced as a limited edition in a carbon finish version, and will be exclusively available at the Horologio watch store in Las Vegas, as well as selected casinos in Monaco and Macau.
