Some professions require absolute precision. When success depends on perfect timing and when every second counts, having a watch capable of meeting the highest and most rigorous standards, becomes absolutely imperative. Reliability, performance and resistance are essential for these special timekeeping instruments. Military watches are the finest examples of the successful combination of readability and functionality.
To create the BR 01 aviation watch, our 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.
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".
The Vintage BR range comprises updated releases of aviation watches from the 1940s. They embody the spirit of avant-garde innovation which marked aviation at that time and stand out for their design, combining vintage style with ultra-contemporary technology and materials.
For the benefit of frequent travelers, Bell & Ross fitted the Vintage BR 123 with dual time zone display. The GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) function allows two time zones to be displayed simultaneously. The metal hands on the main dial display the time in the first time zone; the orange hand gives the time in the second zone, shown on the graduated 24-hour outer bezel. The large figures, the hands with photo-luminescent coating and the orange color of the GMT hand ensure perfect legibility both day and night.
