Bell & Ross BR 01 Skull Bronze
Limited Edition of 500 Pieces
In 2009, Bell & Ross made a lasting impression by breaking with traditional watchmaking codes with its first Skull" BR 01. This year, the brand presented a surprising variant, the BR01 SKULL BRONZE. This new version, with its distinctive character, pays tribute to the epic of the parachutists of the Second World War. On their jumpsuits, these elite fighters proudly wore a crest bearing a skull and these words: "Death from Above". Falling from the sky at dawn on 6 June 1944, the troops of the 101st and 82nd American airborne divisions played a vital role in the Normandy landings. From time immemorial, the most formidable fighters have demonstrated their courage by sporting such skulls, both to intimidate their adversaries and to ward off bad fortune.
Today, while it continues to figure on a lot of military equipment ‰ÛÒ such as uniforms, emblems and aeroplanes ‰ÛÒ, the famous "Jolly Roger" as decorative element appears as a talisman or a rebel symbol."
