        Unlike the Commando line, the BR 01 Airborne comes with a carbon-blackened square case made of stainless steel that emphasizes over the immense beauty diamonds give to accessories and to make the watch even more special, it was given a strap manufactured by galuchat leather, a special leather used by the Qing dynasty on composite bows.

        The BR 01 Airborne is a symbol, a symbol of strength and will, proven by all those affected by this terrible disease that manage to fight it every day. The auction has as main purpose the raising of funds in order to help an organization involved in a Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy research project.
