Replica Watches UK — Two new models, chronograph and three-hand small seconds, for the Naval Air Force officers.
Bell & Ross has made aeronautical instrumentation one of its primary sources of inspiration, both in terms of design and technology. Its replica watches meet the functional and ergonomic criteria required by pilots and all users of professional horological instruments.
Today the brand unveils two new models, a chronograph and a three-hand small seconds replica watch, that feature the colour codes and rich detail of the naval officer’s uniform.
The blue of the uniform evokes the sea. The gold of the wings, trim and buttons conveys poise, nobility and victory. The blue and gold combination is also found on Vintage BR Aéronavale models, which feature all the symbols and motifs that appear on naval uniforms.
The 43 mm diameter polished steel case, water-resistant to 100 m, exudes retro chic. It is topped with a fixed steel bezel with anodised blue aluminium ring and closed with a sapphire case-back. On both versions, the gilt skeletonised hour and minute hands, filled with Superluminova, stand out starkly against the navy blue sunray dial.
The Vintage BR 123 Aéronavale model is powered by the automatic mouvement calibre BR-CAL.305 which displays the hour, minute, small seconds at 6 o’clock and date functions.
Designed for pilots, the Vintage BR 126 Aéronavale Chronograph is a time measuring instrument that marries functionality and elegance. It has two additional counters with snailed guilloché decoration – 30-min timer at 9 o’clock and central chronograph seconds – and a 60-minute graduated bezel in blue anodised aluminium.
Both models come with either a distressed blue calfskin strap with cinnamon stitching, or a midnight blue alligator strap with a pin buckle clasp.
