A relatively newcomer in the elitist world of today luxury watchmaking industry, which started its existence during the last decade of the 20th century, Bell & Ross is a watch manufacture created by two enthusiast French designers, named Carlos A. Rosillo and Bruno Belamich.
They introduced a new revolutionary horological concept – the Bell & Ross watches, especially created to meet the needs of individuals who require the upmost endurance and accuracy in their daily jobs like professional divers, pilots, astronauts and bomb disposal experts.
Bell & Ross watches were designed to be, not only extremely reliable timekeeping companions, but also valuable tools, created according to the most exigent standards of quality, mechanical sophistication and aesthetic purity.
Not long ago, the brand released another remarkable addition to its iconic Bell & Ross Vintage BR watch Collection – the retro inspired Bell & Ross BR 126 Heritage Chronograph BR126-94-SC Watch, gives a new contemporary interpretation to the pilot watches, extremely popular during the 1960s and 1970s.
The model demonstrates a black PVD-coated stainless steel case, measuring 41 mm in diameter, which incorporates a steel crown, two chronograph push pieces, a protective sapphire crystal and a solid case-back, and confers the advantage of 200-meters water resistance.
Furthermore, the model demonstrates a sporty black dial nicely completed with interesting beige highlights in the watch’s hour indices, sward-shaped hands and the two oversized Arabic numeral hour markers, which indicate the 12, respectively 6 o’clock positions. The model indicated central hours, minutes and seconds functions, a date function presented through a small round aperture located at 4:30 position, and 60-seconds, and 30-minutes chronograph counters located at 3, respectively 9 o’clock positions.
Especially designed to confer immaculate precision and reliability, the timepiece accommodates a self-winding mechanical movement, the ETA 2894 Caliber, which incorporates 37 jewels, and which oscillates a t a frequency of 28,800 alternations per hour, providing thus, the advantage of 40-hours power reserve.
The model comes matched with a stylish sand-colored leather strap, with individualizing white stitching and black PVD-coated stainless steel tang buckle. As far as the price of the model is concerned we expect it will be somewhere around $4,200.00.
