Bell & Ross Equips Michel Fournier for the 'Big Jump'

May 26, 2008
Bell & Ross has equipped Michel Fournier in his search for the extreme. The brand is famous for having achieved a world record with its Hydromax model providing water-resistance at 11,100 meters. Now Bell & Ross has partnered with Michel Fournier trying to beat the altitude world record for a sky dive with a 40,000 meter (equal to 130,000 feet or nearly 25 mile) jump.

On May 26th, 4.30am local time in Canada, in North Battleford, Canada, Michel Fournier has made a stratospheric jump from the frontier of space and for the first time in history a skydiver has broken the sound barrier at a speed of 1,500 kilometers per hour (932 miles per hour).

For this record breaking jump Michel Fournier has chosen to wear the BR 02 INSTRUMENT, a blend of high technology and precision watch-making, characterized by extreme reliability. The mechanism of the watch was designed to resist extreme pressures, as well as abnormally low temperatures.
