Bell & Ross and ONLY WATCH 2011

Bell & Ross supports the Only Watch project and its incredible fund raising efforts in the fi ght against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. For the second time, the brand will join forces with the Only Watch project and participate in this extraordinary endeavor to help children suffering from this disease. Our commitment to help has resulted in the design of this exclusive watch.


A unique Watch : BR01 CASINO PINK GOLD

Bell & Ross presents its new exclusive creation for Only Watch: the BR01 CASINO Pink Gold. This unique model is a technical marvel and an homage to the famous Casino of Monaco where the Only Watch auction will take place.

A casino roulette wheel is faithfully reproduced in the center of the watch and is perfectly integrated into the square case of the iconic Bell & Ross BR 01. Thanks to an ingenious disk display system, the time is indicated by using three different markers: a ‘0' numeral on the outside disk displays the hours; the small roulette ball on the middle disk indicates the minutes. The center of the roulette turns at the rhythm of the seconds. The pink gold of the disks and the bezel contrast with the black case for a very innovative and elegant result. A mix of technology and design for this collaboration with Only Watch.

The BR01 Casino timepiece will be introduced as a limited edition in a carbon fi nish version. Exclusively designed for casinos in Monaco, Las Vegas and Macau, those models will be available in October 2011.
