Bell & Ross BR 01 Horizon is inspired by aeronautical instrumentation

Bell & Ross watches are most appealing for their clean and sensible watch-making that provides food for thought each time a new creation is launched. Bell & Ross has once again gone beyond the purview of the traditional concept of reading time with the BR 01 Horizon. All set to grab attention at the Baselworld 2012; the watch draws its inspiration from the attitude indicator- An instrument essential to air navigation. Housed in a 46 mm dial, the watch runs on a mechanical automatic –ETA 2892 movement. This watch’s design wonder lies in its two-level dial wherein the raised dial shows the indexes on the first level while the second level of the dial is divided by the horizon line in a black and a grey part. The Horizon line, indexes, and hands are covered in a photo-luminescent coating.

The dial of BR 01 Horizon, similar to the original instrument, displays two parts representing the sky, in gray and the earth in black. The strap is composed of black rubber and black heavy-duty canvas. The watch is water-resistant up to 100 meters and is available in a limited edition of only 999 pieces.
