Bell & Ross’s attempts to present a bold, sturdy, more masculine edition of its iconic square watches BR-01 brand aroused the desire to go further, to a new league, of course, by other customers. And now, thanks to the latest addition to the famous collection, Bell & Ross BR-X1 Chronograph Tourbillon – skeletonized chronograph and tourbillon monopusherom – Bell & Ross easily overcome this milestone.
The Bell & Ross brand is relatively young, but, in certain circles it is highly acclaimed and respected. And no wonder – after all exceptionally reliable Swiss watches have always enjoyed well-deserved respect. However, the brand is French itself, but watches are produced in Switzerland (the first models were made by the German manufacturer Sinn), although the straps are originally from Belgium.
The Bell & Ross BR01-94 Pro Titanium Carbon Fiber Watch is the newest in the line of excellent timepieces crafted by the brand. A watch with a ‘wow’ factor and technical brilliance, the popular aviator style watch is part of a limited edition collection. After the first model was delivered in 2008, the brand knew it had a winning design, and then created the all carbon fiber case version in 2009. With the winning combinations the brand designed, adding limited editions, various colors, themed items, this design fell into place easily.
The carbon fiber construction makes the timepiece light, and esthetically pleasing. The design was created to please everyone, and thank goodness the brand took great care in crafting legible hand and hour markers, with great luminescence and such ease for reading anywhere by anyone. The chronograph timepiece looks stunning with a square shape bezel, slightly turned at a 45 degree angle, with sliced corners.
Bell & Ross was founded in 1922 combining the magnificent talents of Carlos Rosillo and Bruno Belamich. The brand designs timepieces for professionals working in extreme conditions. First created for the French Army and civilian task force, as well as the UN and NATO, these designer watches are crafted with high technology and rugged construction.
The Bell & Ross Aviation Collection soars to whole new heights with the latest releases. The collection previously featured timepieces that were highly masculine, and captured the essence of aeronautics, but these new pieces are more than just new watches, they are flight instruments. Taking a twist on the brand’s BR-01 model, the new additions include the heading indicator, airspeed, and climb instrument recreated on the watch face.
