Classic

From Unofficial Bell & Ross Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The rigorously classical chronograph was directly inspired by the pilot watches of the 1950's. It was designed according to instrument panel readability principles. The arrow-shaped hands distinguish chronograph functions from time functions.

The Bell & Ross Classic was a re-issue of the Sinn 103 Pilot. You'll often see them listed for sale as a Bell & Ross 103 Pilot or Pilot Sapphire. The Bell & Ross Classic also bears a strong resemblance to Breguet Aéronavale models.
