Bell & Ross just re-released its popular BR01 “Burning Skull” watch in bronze. Initially dropped in 2009, the new iteration is set to be limited to only 100 pieces. The model features a three-dimensional relief of a skull which pays homage to the brave parachutists of WWII. It is said that these soldiers wore such an insignia alongside the words “Death from Above.” Additionally, the timepiece features a black SuperLuminova that heightens the design’s dark appeal.
In addition to the skull and crossbones, the special product also has decorative engravings that mirror the style of tattoos. As for the patina already seen on the watch, it’s the use of bronze that allows for this creation of character which will be different from owner to owner. Other features of the watch include a calibre BR-CAL.302 mechanical automatic movement and water resistant capabilities up to 100 meters. Unfortunately, the watch is made exclusively for the Hong Kong and China market. Die-hard fans outside these regions will really need to go out of their way to acquire one.
