As you may know, Bell & Ross’ saga started in an aircraft cockpit and was driven by the ambition of designing watches directly inspired by aeronautical instrumentation. Watches have always been a precious aid helping crews with navigation and providing operational support to pilots. This is why all military-inspired Bell & Ross watches comply with criteria established by the armed forces. The idea behind these Bell & Ross Vintage BR V2 Steel Heritage Watches was the best of the past inspiring the present. The name heritage is a transversal concept through time and has its roots in the initial watch collection of 2009 highlighting the key eras in aviation history.
The Bell & Ross Vintage Steel Heritage watch comes in three-hand or chronograph versions. They both share the characteristic of expressing the passage of time through colors and a patina that give them a vintage look. Thanks to this aesthetic effect, and the combination of beige numerals on a black background designed by Bell & Ross, the BR V2-92 and BR V2-94 Steel Heritage watches have managed to introduce an iconic style into the watch market.
Inspired by instrument panels from 1960s aircraft, the BR V2-92 and BR V2-94 Steel Heritage watches measure time with precision whilst cultivating a resolutely retro look. Since 2009, Bell & Ross has paid tribute to pocket watches from the Great War. Today, the Vintage collection is entering its third generation, and the new models have seen their design evolve.
The new versions feature the iconic black dial with its traditional sand-colored 12, 3, 6 and 9 numerals, as if aged by time. The details include a polished/satin-finished steel case with a slightly smaller diameter of 41mm, push-buttons and a screw-down crown to reinforce the water resistance of the case, rounded lugs that match the new metal bracelet with fine links to ensure it sits comfortably on any wrist, and the sapphire crystal with an ultra-curved finish to evoke the style of vintage watches.
You will find several Bell & Ross collections which use essentially the exact same basic case design but also in various dimensions (and each having different models). The BR X watches are Bell & Ross’ “Experimental” collection which also utilize some variation of the square instance but with generally more elaborate structures, bold layouts, and haute complications (hands on illustration here with the Bell & Ross BR X2 Tourbillon Micro-Rotor). The Bell & Ross instance is instantly identifiable as such, but the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver can also be only a serious-looking dip watch. It further manages to play the part of a bold-wearing luxury sport watch with a competitive existence — and at the exact same time, it appears purposeful and down-to-earth, so the wearer doesn’t seem like he’s desperate for attention. Ultimately, despite that boldness and presence, its size and dimensions somehow keep it surprisingly wearable. At this time, these have been my beliefs while wearing it.
Continuing the Bell & Ross tradition, the Bell & Ross BR V2-92 is priced with a steel bracelet at $3,200 USD and the BR V2-94 chronograph is priced at $4,600 USD. bellross.com
