Bell & Ross
Through a careful integration of engineers, designers, and technicians
obsessed with perfection, we present the fine series of Bell & Ross Watches.
High quality watches designed for professionals by the best watchmakers in the
world. Whether in the depths of space, the deepest ocean, or breaking the sound
barrier, Bell & Ross has been there with the best pilots, scientists, divers,
Bell & Ross watches are uniquely suited for men who live a rugged and busy
lifestyle. Originally designed for men in occupations of scuba diver, jet pilot,
and astronaut, each Bell and Ross watch is hardy enough to stand up to your busy
life while still affording you the style and flair you demand.
Each Bell & Ross chronograph is designed by men with a passion for perfection in
the manufacture of fine quality watches and chronographs able to withstand the
rigors of extreme careers. Bell & Ross watches are intended for astronauts,
pilots, divers, bomb-squad experts, explorers and others who require that their
timepiece stand up to high altitudes, arctic temperatures and high acceleration.
Airplane instrument panel design principles have been employed in the design of
the face, Swiss chronograph movements are at the cutting edge of mechanical
precision and every Bell & Ross chronograph is optimally water-resistant. Each
Bell & Ross requires the painstaking assembly of up to 350 individual parts to
produce such accurate and mechanically perfect instruments.
The Vintage Collection evokes the origins of the mechanical watch for
professionals and is inspired by military watches. The Classic Collection was
directly inspired by pilots' watches and features water resistance to 200 meters
(650 feet). The Diver 300 model is actually water-resistant to a depth of 300
meters (975 feet) and features an innovative TE or water-resistance indicator
which turns blue when the watch's water resistance should be checked.
The High Tech collection was designed to address the particular needs of men who
put their lives on the line every day they go to work. Designed initially for
space flight, the Space 1 was worn by German astronaut Reinhart Frrer on the
Spacelab mission. The Pilot line features simplicity and is designed to be
accurately read in a fraction of a second. The GMT line features multiple time
zones. The Military M1 and M2 models were designed specifically for military and
helicopter pilots, respectively. The two most narrowly targeted models of the
High Tech collection are the Type Deminer for bomb-squad experts and the
Hydro-Challenger for deep-sea exploration (hyperbaric pressure resistant to
1,100 Atm, the equivalent of a depth of 11,100 meters.
