Bell And Ross Vintage Review
Bell & Ross has become a benchmark in the world of professional aviation watches, despite being relatively new to the industry. The brand was founded in 1992 as a university project between two lifelong friends, Bruno Belamich (Bell) and Carlos A. Rosillo (Ross), both of whom shared a vision of producing functional and durable timepieces. Throughout the years of operation, Bell & Ross’ bulging portfolio of goods has traditionally divided into two accessible series: Bell and Ross Vintage series, and the Bell and Ross Instrument series.
The vintage series began during the early years of the Bell and Ross brand. It was formed to pay tribute to key eras of aeronautical adventures and mainly to the aviators who were the first professionals to consider the wristwatch as an asset on their missions with each series of watches marking a milestone in its chronology. The vintage collection started with a unique classic dial, rounded lugs, and the absence of a bezel which was its original first generation. As the second generation begins to push through, the case and dial are redesigned to bring coherence to the collection.
With the third generation, the latest has once again evolved with the times. The identity of the dial remains, and the case becomes more sophisticated. The diameter has decreased, and the watches are flatter. This new Vintage generation has seen much innovation. A modern touch has been added to this firmly established collection by redesigning the diameter and thickness of the case. Many of its details have been reworked to combine sophistication with optimum functionality.
Most of the vintage series styles come in 123 version which has a three-hand automatic Swiss ETA 2892 movement and 126 versions having modified ETA automatic chronograph 2894 moves. This includes the Vintage BR chronograph, and the vintage BR automatic model, which are among the prominent wristwatches under the Bell and Ross vintage collection, BR heritages like the Bell and Ross Aeronavale, the BR vintage military, Bell and Ross Officer.
