The inspiration for the designs and quality of Bell & Ross comes from the history of aviation and the military specifications required to carry out the technical and visual feat expected from a timepiece of the highest quality.
This example is a BR 126 Sport Heritage. Thanks to its classic design, this watch carries all the aesthetic charm of a vintage timepiece.
So, lets discuss these features.
The dial: The first thing you will notice is the picture perfect rose gold finish on the hands and number markers. Then your eyes are drawn to the 2 sub dials. One is a small seconds hand and the other, a useful GMT function. The round date aperture is discretely tucked between the 4 and 5 o’clock indicators.
The case: measuring in at a respectable 43mm the stainless steel case is versatile and functional. The fixed, black tachymetre scale bezel is simply numbered and a touch thinner than one would see on a modern watch, but very much in keeping with the vintage style. The piston style chronograph pushers also lend to the vintage appeal and design.
Overall, the BR 126 Sport Heritage is shining example of vintage styling combined with modern size and reliability.
This watch has never been worn and comes complete with original box and papers.
