Vintage timepieces often inspire original Bell & Ross watch designs, but the brand’s latest creation is as modern as it gets. For the Reno Air Races, the watch brand introduced its own plane, the BR Bird, a direct influence on its new watch: the BR V2-94 Racing Bird. Taking cues from the BR Bird, the watch is the first B&R model to boast Arabic numerals on its white dial, accented by hits of grey, orange and blue. Similarly, it features a “three-day” date display embedded into the running seconds subdial base. Normal detailing remains, like the 41mm steel case and 30-minute chronograph layout.
Limited to a mere 999 pieces, the BR V2-94 Racing Bird retails from $4,400-$4,700 USD on Bell & Ross’s website.
THE BR BIRD: After designing racing cars inspired by aeronautical shapes, Bell & Ross has now designed a plane of its own! It should come as no surprise that it is a high-speed plane capable of competing in the Reno Air Races in record-breaking style. #WatchBeyond #BellRoss #RacingBird #BaselWorld #BRBird #BellAndRoss #InstaWatch #BaselWorld2018 #BRV #WatchOfTheDay
