In 1992 a team of designers and specialists of aircraft and space controls joined with a set project to create watches perfectly suiting a professional use, to be part of the great Swiss watchmaking tradition while meeting the demands of men facing extreme situations. Nowadays astronauts, pilots, divers, or bomb disposal experts use Bell & Ross watches as tools on their missions. As a mark of respect to the France Naval Service, Bell & Ross has released a limited edition of 10 series of 150 pieces each. The stainless steel casing measures 41mm X 14.5mm.
The movement is an automatic B&R caliber (base ETA) with 28 jewels and a power reserve of 42 hours. Moreover, it is water-resistant to 200 meters. You can opt for either a sapphire crystal or an acrylic crystal, and either a bracelet or a leather strap. Designed for professionals who demand optimal reliability, Bell & Ross watches meet four basic principles: readability, performance, precision, and water resistance. Thus, every detail has its purpose, its function. This technical exactness is expressed through pure lines and timeless elegance. These brawny timepieces retail for 3,000 Euros ($3,877) and more!
