Bell & Ross Baselworld Coverage

We'll have the info for Bell & Ross' Baselworld 2015 releases as news flows out from B&R HQ.

Aviation

In their quest for the ideal utilitarian watch and armed with their experience in aeronautic and military fields, engineers, master watchmakers, designers and professional users have combined their skills to create three instruments complementary in both size and function: the BR 01, BR 03 and BR-S.

BR X1

Always ahead of its time, Bell & Ross continues to innovate with the launch of the BR-X1, a high-tech chronograph with a sporty design, which is as robust as it is sophisticated. Revolutionary in its design, the BR-X1 is the first watch of a new collection from Bell & Ross and the beginning of a whole new chapter in the saga of the brand. An extreme version of the BR-01, whose iconic square shape is directly inspired by aeronautical flight instruments, the BR-X1 is much more than a top-of-the-range contemporary sports watch: it is the "Ultimate Utility Watch".

BR 01

To create the BR 01 aviation watch, Bell & Ross' designers took their inspiration from aeronautical instrumentation, the ultimate reference point for legibility and reliability. Available in a variety of models, the BR 01 Instrument watch is no longer exclusively reserved for pilots. It has become an iconic watch to the great delight of watch collectors.

BR 03

An aviation watch designed for professionals, the BR03 with its 42 mm diameter is a genuine alternative to the 46 mm diameter BR01. Its size as well as its finishes and functions complement the BR 01. The AVIATION BR 03 collection comes in several versions according to mechanism type, case materials and dial colors.

BR-S

True to its aeronautical origins, Bell & Ross has re-imagined its iconic model, the BR 01, by introducing a sleeker, thinner, and more elegant version: the BR-S 39mm.


Marine

BR 02

In order to meet the specific requirements of professional divers, Bell & Ross has developed the MARINE BR 02 Collection that conforms to the necessities of the underwater environment. Water-resistant to 1,000 meters, legible in deep sea conditions and fitted with a decompression valve and unidirectional adjustable bezel, the BR02 is a diving instrument perfectly suited for professional use.


Vintage

The vintage collection evokes the changing designs of civil aviation and military timepieces, from their beginnings though the 1960s. The pocket watch, which evolved into the wristwatch and professional watch, was the inspiration for the subsequent styles representing three stages of evolution. With their modern design, these traditional and pure lines illustrate the authenticity of a collection created for connoisseurs of the genre

Vintage BR

A reimagined version of the models worn by aviators in the 1940s, the Vintage BR represents the modern watch in its simplest form, inspired by the legibility requirements of a dashboard. By combining the functionality of its movement, the legibility of its dial, the domed crystal and the finish of its straps, Bell & Ross has merged the authenticity of vintage watches with the very latest technologies.

Vintage WW1

By creating the Vintage WW1 (Wrist Watch 1), Bell & Ross pays tribute to the first wristwatches worn by pilots in the 1920s, a design born from the need to keep their hands free. Drawing its inspiration from a point of evolution midway between the pocket watch and the wristwatches of the 1940s, the WW1 brings together the design elements of the Roaring Twenties: a large fob-watch type diameter, wire lugs welded to the sides of the watch giving the impression of horns, and a thin leather strap, elegant yet strong.

Vintage WW2

By creating the Vintage WW2 (Wrist Watch 2), Bell & Ross pays tribute to the timekeeping instruments used by bomber navigators in the 1930s and 1940s.


Discontinued Models

Collection Type Professional

Collection Classic

Designed in a strictly classical style, the Classic models have been directly inspired by pilots' watches of the 50's. These chronographs have been designed with the same concern for legibility as flight instruments on board aircraft of the period. The hands in the forms of arrows make it easy to differentiate the chronographic functions from those of a standard watch.

Collection Vintage

As a tribute to service men, and particularly to pilots, who were the first professionals to consider that the wristwatch is a tool to assist them in carrying out their missions, Bell & Ross has created the Vintage Collection. Its refined lines and classical styling, at once traditional and also modern in its design, illustrate the authenticity of this range created for those who love fine watchmaking.
