Bell & Ross
History and production
Bell & Ross was founded in 1992 as a university project between Bruno Belamich (Bell) and Carlos A. Rosillo (Ross). Swiss watch designers, including co-founder and creative director Bruno Belamich, joined with aircraft control specialists to create a pilot’s watch. Bell & Ross watches are built to function even in high altitudes, freezing temperatures and extreme acceleration. The brand's square-cased BR-01 models are its signature design. The company has three product lines: Aviation, Marine and Vintage. Bell & Ross movements are made in collaboration with Geneva-based MHC (Manufacture Hautes Complications). Chanel took partial ownership of the company in 1997. The brand created a limited edition watch to mark the 25th anniversary of streetwear brand A Bathing Ape in 2018.
Bell & Ross have collaborated with Renault since 2016.
The BR V3-94 Black Steel is a 43mm timepiece with an in-house movement designed to compete with classic chronographs such as the Rolex Daytona or Omega Speedmaster.
Bell & Ross Space 1 was the first automatic chronometer to be worn in space. Bell & Ross Hydromax 11 100 M was the Guinness World Record holder for wristwatch water-resistance at 11,000 meters. In 2002 Bell & Ross introduced the first jumping hour watch with power reserve, the Vintage 123 Heure Sautante.
