Bell & Ross Creates BR 01 Altimeter Watch

Aug 15, 2012
Bell & Ross gladdens its fans with another novelty the BR 01 Altimeter watch. The designers of the brand used the graphic features of the altimeter, having come up with an innovative time display.

The dial-style of the new Bell & Ross watch has been inspired by the original tool. The 3 oclock date window looks like the atmospheric pressure window of the altimiter. It displays the date with help of two independent discs.

The altimeter also suggested the typeface of the dial markers. You will notice the letters ALt and the grooved indicator printed on the dial that are the same as featured by the original instrument. The hour, minutes and seconds hands resemble those of the altimeter.

The hands and index markers are provided with a white photo-luminescent coating that creates a sharp contrast with the black background of the dial and offers supreme legibility as that of professional aviation tools.

The 46mm steel case demonstrates anti-reflective, matte black carbon finish. It incorporates a screw-in crown and anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The case accommodates a mechanical automatic movement - ETA 2896. The case construction is 100-meter water-resistant.

The Bell & Ross BR 01 Altimeter watch is presented on a rubber and heavy-duty canvas strap. The edition of the timepiece is limited to 999 pieces.
