Bell & Ross introduces Vintage Collection

As an homage to the aviators of the 1940’s who first used the wristwatch professionally, Bell & Ross has designed the Vintage Collection. While each line of the collection is unique, all of the watches share the same shape, movements, and inspiration. Each watch features a round case, domed sapphire crystal, refined dial graphics, and an automatic (BR 123) or a chronograph function (BR 126). Both lines of the collection, Vintage Original and Vintage Heritage, illustrate the brand’s signature qualities: reliability, readability, accuracy, and functionality.

The Vintage Original
This modern version is a re-edition of the watches worn by aviators in the 1940’s, which evokes the essence of the original models. The case is satin-finish steel and the dial is available in two colors reflective of the era: black and beige.

Similar to an aviation instrument, the black dial is in direct contrast to the white hands and index, illustrating one of Bell & Ross’ core principles – readability. It comes with a matte leather strap, making it subtle, yet elegant, and able to be worn on any occasion.

The beige dial is reminiscent of World War II pilots’ uniforms, full of vintage spirit. For perfect readability, the dial contrasts with the black numerals and index. The brown leather strap complements the tones of the beige dial.

The Vintage Heritage
Combining readability with the authenticity of period watches, the Vintage Heritage has a matte black case with an anti-reflection finish, identical to aircraft instrument panels. The hands, index and numerals are beige in color, reminiscent of the distinctive color of period watches. Similar to antique watches, the natural leather strap acquires a characteristic patina over time.
