Swiss watch maker Bell & Ross creates professional watches inspired from the aeronautical instruments and the history of aviation. From the first timepieces, this inspiration has nurtured the development of Aviation and Vintage collections. The AVIATION Collection takes its inspiration from aeronautical instruments where as the vintage collection pay tribute to the history of aviation.
Since legibility of onboard instruments is vital in aeronautics, two colours are prevalent in cockpits: matte black for its anti-reflective properties and white for its extreme legibility. Orange – reserved for essential information – also has an important presence and, having always featured on the Bell & Ross models, has become emblematic of the brand.
In 2014, Bell & Ross presents the BR 03-94 CARBON ORANGE designed especially for professionals working under extreme conditions who require optimum legibility in all circumstances.
As in aircraft’s cockpit instruments, and to facilitate the reading of short periods of time, a touch of orange contrasts with the matte black to highlight all the indications relating to the chronograph function.
