the tactical and spiritual inspirations that instruct the Bell & Ross Heritage Series
It costs fortune to train fighter pilots. So aptitude tests are everything. The best individuals are both dependable and unpredictable, forceful but compelling. Likewise, legibility, precision and reliability are essential qualities of a solid watch. But to transform solid into spectacular, you also want adjectives like exquisite and elegant.
With the Heritage collection, Bell & Ross invokes the spirit of Golden Age of Flight between World War I and World War II. First unveiled in 2009, this line featured high-performance watchmaking techniques dressed in aged dials and broken-in leather straps. Then in 2013 the BR 03 Golden Heritage updated the range with golden appliqué numerals on a brown dial subtly marked with wear.
This year, you’ll find that popular vintage character renewed with a striking navy-blue sunray dial. Contrasting handsomely against the gold indices and hands, this model comes complete with central seconds and date indicator, the square satin-brushed 42mm steel cases and a calfskin strap on a black heavy-duty synthetic fabric. As in previous models, the strap will take on the owner’s “signature” over time and will form a unique patina.
