Bell & Ross - Two new BR Heritage watches

Bell & Ross Two new BR Heritage watches

Inspired by instrument panels from 1960s aircrafts, the two new watches cultivate a resolutely vintage spirit with the Heritage concept at its heart.

Bell & Ross’s saga started in an aircraft cockpit and was driven by the ambition of designing watches directly inspired by aeronautical instrumentation, the ultimate point of reference regarding precision, legibility and reliability.

In 2009, Bell & Ross decided to launch the watch collection « Heritage », highlighting the key eras in aviation history, unifiying its models, of varied forms and functions, around a common concept. Square, round, three-hand or chronograph, they all share the characteristic of expressing the passage of time through colors and a patina that give them a vintage look.

High performance with a retro spirit

Through the Heritage Collection, Bell & Ross has paid tribute to pocket watches from the Great War and to flight instruments from the 1940s. Today, the Vintage collection is entering its third generation, and the two new models BR V2-92 and BR V2-94 Steel Heritage have seen their design evolve.

The new versions feature the iconic black dial with its traditional sand-coloured 12, 3, 6 and 9 numerals, as if aged by the patina of time. They evoke the past, and at the same time belong to the modern era. The details include a polished/satin-finished steel case with a slightly smaller diameter of 41 mm, push-buttons and a screw-down crown to reinforce the water-resistance of the case, rounded lugs that match the new metal bracelet with fine links to ensure it sits comfortably on any wrist, and the sapphire crystal with an ultra-curved finish to evoke the style of vintage watches.

The BR V2-92 houses the BR-CAL.302 automatic movement powering the hours, minutes seconds and date, while the BR V2-94 Steel Heritage chronograph uses the BR-CAL.301 automatic caliber.
