Bell & Ross Instrument BR 01 Airborne 415 & 672

Introduced in 2009 in limited editions of 99 pieces, these two new exclusive diamond studded versions of the BR 01 AIRBORNE in black carbon, take inspiration directly from military symbolism. It is a tribute to paratroopers and their values. The Airborne 415 is paved with 415 diamonds, and even more precious, the Airborne 672 is entirely set with diamonds.

The sober gleam of black diamonds on the case and the sparkle of white diamonds of the skull and crossbones are a striking contrast. The finish quality is an illustration of the know-how of the Swiss Bell & Ross workshops and their total mastery of the setting process.

A fusion of materials, avant garde techniques and fluctuating luminescence, military symbolism is flirting with haute joaillerie – the result is exceptional. Understated luxury, without ostentation in either version, they both magnify the talisman spirit of the original model and its symbolic function, to the total delight of collectors.
