Bell & Ross Presents the Vintage Original Carbon Watch

Feb 23, 2011

Bell & Ross’s popular Vintage Collection was developed to honor 1940’s aviators who regarded wristwatches as an important instrument for their jobs. This year Bell & Ross is scheduled to release a new member of the Vintage Original collection at Baselworld: The Vintage Original Carbon watch. The goal of Bell & Ross was to create a watch that was both true to its vintage heritage and reminiscent of a plane’s instrument panel while maintaining a powerful modern punch behind the watch dial.

Two versions of the Vintage Original Carbon watch are going to be released, the hours and minutes and a chronograph. Both watches have the circular case design of vintage aviation watches with an anti-glare, matte black carbon finished influenced by the color of plane instrumentation panels. The large Arabic numerals and white hands stand out starkly from the dark dial, both with a photo-luminescent coated that insures that this watch will be readable by night as well as day. The crystal maintains the curved design of vintage watches, but has been updated to be made of a highly resistant sapphire crystal.
