Swiss luxury watch brand Bell & Ross presents the limited edition BR 03-92 watch to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Patrouille de France.
An elite unit of the French Air and Space Force, the Patrouille de France has established itself for 70 years as one of the most prominent aerobatic display teams.
Founded in 1953, the Patrouille de France has marked minds and hearts for seven decades thanks to its highly skilled pilots, but also its exceptional aircraft. In the sky, their slender lines and their agility are also part of the beauty of the show.
From the Thunderjet, which entered into service in 1953, to the Alphajet, in service since 1981, not forgetting the Ouragan, Mystère IV and the mythical Fouga Magister, these aircraft are part of the legend. To celebrate them, they are represented on the back of the ceramic case of the BR 03-92 Patrouille de France 70th Anniversary watch.
This professional pilot watch comes with an ultra-light square-shaped case (42 x 42 mm) in high-tech ceramic, treated here with a black coating accentuating the contrasts.
Water-resistant to 100 metres, it protects the automatic mechanical movement calibre, BR-CAL 302, which indicates the hours, minutes, seconds and date.
For the dial of this exclusive anniversary limited edition of 999 pieces, Bell & Ross has chosen a particularly luminous shade of blue, evoking the colour of the Alpha Jet of the Patrouille de France. The insignia of this elite display team and the specific logo of its 70TH anniversary appear at the heart of this dial subtly circled in the colours of the French flag.
