Bell & Ross has created the Vintage Collection to pay tribute to the aviators of the 1940s who were the first professionals to consider the wristwatch as an aid to their missions. 2011 sees the addition of a new model to the Vintage Collection: the Vintage Original Carbon. Bell & Ross has used the latest technologies to combine the authenticity of vintage watches with the legibility principles of an instrumentation panel, all in a single wristwatch. Two quality Swiss movements are available – an authentic hours, minutes and seconds version (BR 123) and a chronograph version (BR 126). The Vintage Original Carbon reinforces the consistency and synergy between all of the brand’s collections. It perfectly illustrates the Bell & Ross philosophy to create watches of a professional vocation for which legibility, functionality, accuracy and reliability are the priority.
