The Watch

Here we have a 2020 Bell & Ross BRV123-Heritage with a 41mm stainless steel case coated in black PVD for a stealthy aesthetic, the case curves over your wrist with a lug-to-lug length of 50.5mm and a case thickness of 12.5mm giving the watch an impressive wrist presence. Down the right side, we have a large signed pull-push crown. The smooth bezel holds a domed sapphire crystal AR coated above a matte black dial, large Arabic 12, 3 and 9 with baton indices marking the hours coated in aged sand-coloured SuperLumiNova, and at 6 o’clock a recessed sub-seconds and just underneath a date window. The broad sword hands are coated with aged sand-coloured SuperLumiNova. On the reverse, a screw-down case back with engraving in the centre, inside an automatic BR-CAL. 305, 27 jewels, beating at 28,800 beats per hour, the movement has a base of the ETA 2895-2 movement. The watch comes fitted on its 22mm Bell & Ross leather strap with its original Bell & Ross buckle and the watch comes with its Bell & Ross presentation box and papers.


Personal Note

Bell & Ross is most famous for their square watches, rightfully so, they are iconic among the watch world and instantly recognisable among collectors. However, their "Heritage" range of more traditionally shaped watches is often overlooked, which allows them to come up pre-owned at incredible prices just like this one! 


The Brand

Bell & Ross was founded in 1992 as a project at the university between two close friends, Bruno Belamich (Bell) and Carlos A. Rosillo (Ross). As a French watch company based in Paris, they have their manufacturing in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland The company's watches were originally produced by the German company Sinn, but this partnership ended in 2002 soon after Chanel became a minority shareholder, and production was quickly moved to Switzerland. In 1992, Bell & Ross started producing pilot watches for the French air force. They became the official watch supplier to the Escadron de Chasse La Fayette and the French space program. In 2016, Bell & Ross began collaborating with French automaker Renault to create watches that are inspired by their  Formula 1 racing cars. The Bell & Ross Space 1 was the first automatic chronometer to be worn in space in 1994 The Bell & Ross Hydromax 11 100 M was the Guinness World Record holder for wrist watch water resistance at 11,000 metres in 1998
