In 1992, Bruno Belamich and Carlos A. Rosillo founded the Bell & Ross brand in Paris to provide military spec watches for pilots in the French Air Force. The company moved to Switzerland in 2002 and continues to build luxury timepieces dedicated to its four principles: legibility, precision, functionality, and reliability.

What's Unique About Bell & Ross BR-X5 Watches?
The most unique aspect of the Bell & Ross BR-X5 watches is their remarkable resemblance to the gauges found in aircraft cockpits. Each has the same dial layout, with a subdial at nine o'clock showing the power reserve and a unique date complication at three. Designed like an altimeter, three consecutive dates are shown top to bottom with an arrow pointing to the current date in the middle.
Other watches have a square case and round dial, but the Bell & Ross BR-X5 timepieces have a screw at each of the four case corners, and the shape further enhances the aircraft instrument look. Each timepiece in the collection has a water resistance of 100 m, making them suitable for swimming. The case diameter of 41 mm of every watch in the collection makes them suitable for a wide range of wrist sizes.

Every watch in the Bell & Ross BR-X5 Collection features the Kenissi BR-Cal.323 automatic mechanical movement. This new movement outperforms many of its competitors in reliability and precision and has a generous 72-hour power reserve.
