Luxurysafes blog will talk about Bell & Ross returns to the sea, luxury watch brand have creative idea go back to the roots and return to the see. Lets start from begining to understand the new concept of this brand.
Bell & Ross is known for its close ties with the military, which it uses as a source of inspiration and a reference. This affinity has given rise to a number of officers’ and pilots’ watches, with round or square faces, intended either for professional or for more… allegorical use. The sea is an element Bell & Ross has neglected for some time. Finally, Bell & Ross returns to the sea.
The watchmaker is taking two routes to bring its customers back to the water. The first is a logical evolution of its aviators’ models: the Aéronavale. It represents a hybrid zone where plane meets boat – as on an aircraft carrier.
The Aéronavale is part of the Vintage range, with a modestly-sized round case, three hands, graduated bezel and a chronograph, all in blue – dial, bezel and strap. But if we look for watches designed for marine use, we’ve seen nothing since the BR02, a dive watch whose design has remained untouched for some time.
2016 is the year Bell & Ross returns to the sea. The Marine collection pays tribute to the instruments used in former days to measure time, a vital requirement for navigating the high seas. Its three new references borrow explicitly from the aesthetics of marine chronometers.
The BR01 Marine, with its pure white dial, minute track, Roman numerals and small seconds counter, will be available in a limited edition of 500. The BR-X1 Marine, which has a modular case design, espouses the company’s new chronograph format. The BR-X1 Tourbillon Chronographe Instrument de Marine represents the pinnacle of the range, with its exceptional flying tourbillon movement and monopusher chronograph.
