Bell & Ross is a relatively a young watch company that is heralded and revered in horological circles today for their exemplary designed and precision crafted timepieces. Founded in 1992 by designer Bruno Belamich and business entrepreneur Carlos Rosilo, Bell & Ross set out to create timepieces for professionals in extreme situations, namely pilots, astronauts, divers and bomb-disposal experts.
The company looked to design watches for discerning professionals that met four fundamental principles: readability, performance, precision and water-resistance. Each Bell & Ross timepiece features highly accurate Swiss-made movements, clear visual indicators, the optimal water-resistance and distinctive functions for specialized use.
The brand’s first BR timepiece was patterned after the shape of a cockpit instrument and instantly became a popular choice for pilots and astronauts. The BR02 diving watches offered highly legible dials and water resistance to 1000 meters, while the Hydromax models contained hydraulic fluid and were able to counteract external pressures.
Many of the brand’s original models are still being produced today along with many newer models at their production facilities in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. The technical exactness and utmost attention to detail in the design and production have remained unchanged for over 20 years.
You’ll find all of the latest Bell & Ross watches at luxury retailer The Watchery, including the Aviation Men’s Automatic Chronograph watch.
