Bell & Ross was the result of a university project between Bruno Belamich and Carlos A. Rosillo in 1992. A relative newcomer to the luxury watch market, this brand is instantly recognisable and has shot to popularity with their practical, functional and eye-catching designs.
Bell & Ross were formed with the dedication to create timepieces that are designed to serve specific functions. The company has three established collections, to include Aviation, Marine and Vintage. As part of their Aviation Collection, they have supplied pilot watches to the French Air Force since 1992, together with designing pieces for the French Space Programme. The Marine Collection saw the record for water resistance in 1997, with the Hydro Challenger reaching a depth of 11,000 metres.
One of the most popular models is the BR-01, introduced as part of the Aviation collection in 2005. This piece is instantly recognisable, with its square shape case, visible screws and easy to read dial. The square case has become something of an icon for the brand, with its inspiration drawn from instruments found in aircraft cockpits.
