Bell & Ross BR-X1 Aircraft Gauge-inspired Watch Gets Rocker Push Buttons and Skeletal Look

This may not go down well with every Bell & Ross devotees, but here it is, the BR-X1 Skeleton Chronograph, Bell & Ross’ sporty and futuristic take of the iconic BR-01. Inspired by the aeronautical flight instrument of the 21st century fighter airplanes, the BR-X1 retains the signature square design which so many have copied but failed, and unfortunately or not, that’s about the only similarity this new kid has with its forebears. The futuristic look blend with the signature square design may not be everyone’s cuppa, but it is still quite a looker (note: we said ‘quite’).

Bell & Ross BR01 and BR03 B-Rocket

French luxury watch maker Bell & Ross has come a long way. it has, in 2011, transit successfully from the air to the land through a special collab Harley-Davidson cruiser and since then, it is associated with both aviation and high-speed motorcycle. complementing its second motorcycle collaboration with Shaw Speed & Custom which have featured recently, is this pair of watches, aptly named BR01 and BR03 B-Rocket. interestingly, the B-Rocket watches are designed after the bike was conceptualized and as expected, the duo features designs that are closely linked to the B-Rocket. kicking off the duo is the 46mm BR01, sporting a large minutes counter, a tachymetric scale on the outer edge of the dial for measuring short periods of time, and three additional counters which provide further information: a 60-second, 30-minute and 12-hour counter.

Bell & Ross B-Rocket Concept Bike

2011 marked the year Bell & Ross successfully transited from the air to the ground with a special collab with Shaw Harley-Davidson Speed & Custom. three years on, the French luxury watch company is reaffirming their foothold on the ground with the radical and retro-licious B-Rocket Concept Bike. our initial thoughts when we first lay eyes on the B-Rocket were, ‘did Bell & Ross dig something out from its archive to show us?’ nope. apparently not. part airplane, part motorcycle, this two-wheeler is the latest collaboration with Shaw Harley-Davidson featuring unique blend of aerodynamic lines that evoke the experimental aviation of the 60s and the speed bikes that are destined to set records on salt lake at Bonneville.

Bell & Ross BR02 Steel Diving Watch

Bell & Ross are a luxury watchmaker with a mightily impressive back catalogue of timepieces and what they lack in heritage (having only been founded as recently as 1992) they more than make up for with their exemplary collection of luxury watches and it is their aviation and diving watches for which they are possibly most famed.

recreating historically significant time pieces and giving them 21st century material upgrades is an awesome thing, and frankly, is nothing new but doing it with class and style without removing its original flair is not something every watchmaker can claim to do. one such example of class meets style is the Bell & Ross Vintage WW1 ARGENTIUM. Bell & Ross retains the characteristics of the original Vintage WW1 that we saw last year with features such as dome glass in sapphire crystal for the authentic vintage look Continue reading Bell & Ross Vintage WW1 ARGENTIUM

dressing and accessorizing yourself up with all-things-military could be overly rugged instead of looking stylish. so, what we need is something with a touch of luxury to tone down the ruggedness a little and at the same time, injects some real style factor, which is what the Bell & Ross BR 03 Commando can do. featuring the signature square case and round dial face that draws its inspiration from aviation clocks, the BR 03 Commando sports a smaller 42mm diameter case in a special matte black PVD finish matched to a matte gray dial face – a combination that would easily feel right at home on the wrist of any soldiering man.
