Life-Proof Timepieces

A Simple Idea with Explosive Results

Launched in 1992, Bell & Ross came together as a team of designers as well as a team of aircraft control specialists with a simple idea: they wanted to create watches suited perfectly for intense professional use. The original idea was to create a watch that could stand up to the most extreme conditions while keeping in with the great tradition of Swiss watchmakers. These days Bell & Ross watches decorate the wrists of the world’s most extreme professionals. From astronauts to underwater bomb disposal experts, Bell & Ross is always there, always reliable.

A Modern Spin on an Old Business

Launched in 1992 by Bruno Belamich and Carlos A. Rosilo, Bell & Ross watches were designed by the duo and manufactured by German watchmaker Sinn. The watches, such as the BR, was originally designed to emulate the instrument panel of an airplane cockpit. The BR02 finds itself on the opposite end of the spectrum, catering to divers, displaying highly visible dials as well as a case resistant to pressure down to 1000 meters. Initially Bell & Ross watches were practically reissues of the Sinn designs, showcasing both the B&R logo as well as Sinn. The partnership between the two companies ended in 2002. It was at this time Bell & Ross began producing its pieces independently at their new facilities in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.

Symmetric Aesthetic

All Bell & Ross watches follow the same four design principles. Those are visibility, functionality, water-resistance, and precision. Of these, water-resistance has remained as the one of the more consistently important. The unequivocally accurate Swiss mechanical movements of the ETA Valjoux, as well as large, clear indicators such as those found on aircraft instrument panels, are also staples of each and every Bell & Ross watch that comes off the line.

Getting the Most Out of Your Bell & Ross Watch

Bell & Ross luxury watches are absolutely stunning to behold. As with all finely crafted watches, there are several maintenance considerations to take into account to ensure that these watches will continue performing at their peak performance. In particular, great care should be taken to keep the watch well away from any electronic interference – as this can throw the mechanism off. It is also important to have the gaskets on the watch regularly checked to ensure the seal remains watertight.

Of course, you will also want to avoid dropping the watches – especially the ceramic models, as sudden shocks can damage the crystal and crack the bezel. These watches are not fragile, but they do require considerable care to keep them looking and functioning at their best.
