As I mentioned in the past, the watch is based on a few other limited edition watches Bell & Ross created as part of their BR01 "Instrument series." These watches are directly inspired by non-timing instruments in cockpits such as the BR01 Radar watch. Though this watch is based on a game not an instrument. The watch uses three discs to tell the time. Reading it is not exactly what I would call simple, but it is effective given the theme, and allowing the dial to look as much like a roulette wheel as possible. You have the outer ring that indicates the minutes (read via the green "0" indicator), the middle ring with the ball (as the indicator) to read the hours, and a smaller inner ring for the seconds. Given what the BR01 Casino purports to be, it is not that difficult to read.

On the rear of the watch is now a small sapphire crystal viewing panel to see the escapement. This is a big benefit as the 10Hz movement vibrates at 72,000 beats per hour. That is well over twice as fast as your standard mechanical Swiss automatic that operates at 4Hz. This high speed movement is supposed to be more accurate, allows for you to measure 1/10 of a second increments with the chronograph, and also makes the piece more modern. Well more modern in a sort of anachronistic way, but you gotta love the power of silicon. Look closely and you'll see the blue-colored silicon balance spring and escapement. Unlike the large escapements found in slower operating movements (such as the UNITAS for example), high-speed ones are usually quite petite. This is because of air friction and how fast they move.
Through the rear of the case you can see the exposed movement through the sapphire crystal caseback. The balance wheel is smaller given how fast it moves. It is quite impressive to see it in action. 10 Hz is more than twice as fast as a standard 4 Hz mechanical movement, and twice as fast as a 5 Hz Zenith El Primero movement. How does all that relate to accuracy? To be honest I am not sure. Theoretically it should improve accuracy. By how much it is hard to say. Breguet doesn't publish those details, but I have a feeling that the 7727 should be at least appreciably more accurate than lower frequency movements. In the end, you aren't gonna get a watch like this for perfect timing, but rather for the technology and visuals.

Each of the dial and hand options for the ORCA makes sense. I like that the hands are pretty much all long enough. It would have been easy for them to make that mistake, but they did not. Kudos to German stuff! The watches comes with hand-made leather straps but the bracelet option shouldn't be passed up. It is chunky and uses all hex screws. It looks serious, and might help you beat up your opponent in a fight. You'll be a real killer whale wearing one of these.

This isn't the first tourbillon watch by Jaquet Droz, though it is the most elegant. A simple concept, this Grande Seconde Tourbillon takes the standard figure 8 dial design and inserts a classy looking tourbillon into the seconds dial. The resulting look is gorgeous and the tourbillon has a neat secret, but can you detect the amusing irony of the watch name?
