The Bell & Ross company was created in 1992 by a group of designers whose idea was to combine centuries-old Swiss watchmaking tradition with the modern technical precision of aviation and space engineering. Towards this end, they collaborated with aircraft and space engineers to create luxury watches that would meet the needs of men working everyday in intense settings. Built to withstand extreme temperatures, survive rapid accelerations, and undergo immense pressure, Bell & Ross watches are designed for the wrists of astronauts, pilots, divers, and bomb disposal experts.
Every model is built according to four essential features: readability, precision, performance, and water-resistance. The BR 01-92 form part of the Aviation series of timepieces. This collection draws its inspiration and design from the instruments and technology used in airplane cockpits. This series features a distinctive extra-large 46mm square case featuring an hour, minutes, and seconds display. Case metal choices in the BR 01-92 include meticulous finishes in stainless steel, pink gold, carbon, and black coated stainless steel. The glass is made of anti-reflection sapphire crystal and the watch is water-resistant to 100 meters. The strap is available in rubber or heavy-duty synthetic fabric, or leather. The watch possesses a self-winding mechanical movement, a power reserve of approximately 42 hours, and high precision adjustment in 4 positions (tolerance of 0/+10 seconds a day).
Apart from this top-end functionality, these luxury timepieces have earned recognition in the pages of international fashion publications, including GQ, Elle, and Esquire. This distinctive watch makes a powerful statement. These luxury watches speak loudly of the wearer’‘s meticulous taste, respect for technology and precise engineering, and preference for a thoroughly modern watch grounded in centuries of tradition.
