Bell & Ross BR V2-92 and BR V2-94 Steel Heritage

Introduced in 2009 highlighting the key eras in aviation history, the BR Heritage collection unifies its models, of varied forms and functions, around a common concept. Square, round, three-hand or chronograph, they all share the characteristic of expressing the passage of time through colors and a patina that give them a vintage look. Thanks to this aesthetic effect, and the combination of beige numerals on a black background designed by Bell & Ross, they have managed to introduce an iconic style into the watch market. Now, the flagship collection starts a new chapter with the BR V2-92 and BR V2-94 Steel Heritage.

Since 2009, Bell & Ross has paid tribute to pocket watches from the Great War and to flight instruments from the 1940s. Today, the Vintage collection is entering its third generation, and the new models have seen their design evolve.

The new versions feature the iconic black dial with its traditional sand-coloured 12, 3, 6 and 9 numerals, as if aged by the patina of time. They evoke the past, and at the same time belong to the modern era, thanks to the latest watch-making technologies and materials that combine high performance with a retro spirit.

The details include a polished/satin-finished steel case with a slightly smaller diameter of 41 mm, push-buttons and a screw-down crown to reinforce the water-resistance of the case, rounded lugs that match the new metal bracelet with fine links to ensure it sits comfortably on any wrist, and the sapphire crystal with an ultra-curved finish to evoke the style of vintage watches.
