In 2005, a simple idea gave rise to the BR 01: the plan was to turn an aircraft cockpit into the best aviation watch: reliable, functional, accurate and easy to read. Switching “from the cockpit to the wrist”, with the BR 01, the aesthetic codes of contemporary watchmaking were reinvented. Since then, Bell & Ross has developed more than 150 models and fifty limited editions of this square watch which has, over time, become a true platform for creative watchmaking (tourbillon, tourbillon-timer, power reserve, skeleton, large date, GMT, chronograph) and innovative design (Flight Instruments, Heritage, Phantom, Skull, B-Rocket).
To celebrate 10 years of this legendary model, Bell & Ross is releasing an anniversary BR 01 in a limited edition of 500 pieces: the “BR 01 10th Anniversary”.
