In 2015, Bell & Ross launched the BR-X1 line with a Haute Horlogerie version: the BR-X1 Chronograph Tourbillon.
This watch replica combined the extremely virile esthetic codes of the brand with technical refinement. Yet the thrill of a further development was still to come. True to its relentless quest for excellence and performance, Bell & Ross boldly set forth to achieve the ultimate expression of this already iconic design: a skeleton movement enhanced as a rare treasure.
Through a transparent exterior, the BR-X1 Chronograph Tourbillon Sapphire is built around a flying tourbillon master grand complication and Bell & Ross has added an ultra elegant mono-pusher chronograph. The chronograph complication is visible and provides a privileged window into its many intricacies: the column wheel under the dial at 12 o’clock, the semi instantaneous jumping hand (rather than a traditional sweeping hand), and the power reserve indicator of 100 hours (at least 4 days) at 9 o’clock. Masculine through and through, the main plate and pillars have been machined from a single block of metal.
The client is king. And kings can sometimes be unpredictable! While watch replica makers try their best to forecast sales accurately, the results don’t always live up to expectations. And, conversely, sometimes the most unassuming models can be catapulted to the top of the sales charts.
The contrast can often be the most striking where independent watch replica makers are concerned. The reason is that they don’t have the resources of the big groups, who can push a particular model through advertising campaigns, sponsorship deals and special events. Some models sell well, others don’t. The only thing that’s predictable is their unpredictability.
The new BR 03-92 Horograph fits in the Bell & Ross family of watch replica -instruments. Its case designed in a contemporary style, retakes Bell & Ross’ iconic “circle within a square”, reminiscent of the clocks in aircraft cockpits. Aesthetically, these timepieces adopt one of the great precepts of design: “shape induced by function”. Bauhaus, the legendary German school of fine arts is at the origin of this movement characterized by an abundance of right angles, clean lines and minimal ornamentation. Way ahead of its time, this movement established, as early as in the 20s, the foundations of modern design.
This contemporary automatic timepiece evokes the world of aviation. It reproduces the codes of lighting in the runway, used to guide pilots night and day. The Superluminova® coating facilitates reading by all times. This intense green light illuminates runways in the dark and offers excellent luminosity and extraordinary night readability.
The 42 mm case shapes recall the BR-01 of the early days. Microblasted steel is used here to dress the case and give it a unique purity. The dial is made of micro-blasted brass-rhodium with the same look of the case. With an identical finish, these two elements make up a homogeneous block of the same color. The dial is formed by two superimposing metal plates with a sandwich construction. The grey upper section is cut away around the numerals and indices, revealing the photoluminescent coating covering the lower plate. With its incomparable brilliance, the Superluminova® C3 tinted green is ultra-phosphorescent and lasts a very long time in the dark. It also allows persistent reading of the time, even during night time.
Wishing to celebrate the continuing partnership with the Renault Sport Formula One Team in 2017, Bell & Ross reveals three high performances watch replica es replica. Inspired by the steering wheel of the new Renault RS17, this trilogy will be launching on March 22 at Baselworld.
Guests invited to the event held at London’s Royal Horticultural Halls were honoured to discover the debut of the new Renault Sport Formula One Team™, a car entirely designed by Renault Sport Racing. The Renault Sport Formula One Team drivers, Jolyon Palmer and Nico Hulkenberg, were in attendance and spoke to guests following the announcement. Bell & Ross CEO & Co-founder, Carlos-A. Rosillo welcomed guests of the brand introducing them to the new BR03-94 RS17.
The Bell & Ross BR-RS17 collection features a wide range of color shades. These vivid hues are found on the steering wheel of the Renault F1 single-seater. For example, the flange on the two BR X1 chronographs features the same shimmering tones as the dial wheel at the center of the F1 RS17 steering wheel.
These complementary primary colors, rarely used in high-end watch replica es replica, allow functions to be identified and prioritized. The time, chronograph, date, seconds and power reserve have each their own color. This ensures the display is exceptionally clear and easy to decipher.
Apologies in advance if you don’t need a definition of what the grid is in motor racing, but for the avoidance of any doubt I’d just like to remind the reader that it is “a pattern of lines marking the starting places on a motor-racing track.”. The pedantry is to explain the absence of Rolex from the following list, which includes the teams participating in the 2017 Formula 1 World Championship. They alone are the ones who battle it out in qualifying for positions on the starting grid. Rolex is the official timepiece of Formula 1, as well as the title sponsor of the season opener in Australia and the prestigious British Grand Prix. Formula 1 is just one element in the brand’s strong presence in world motorsport. But you will never find Rolex on the grid, quite simply because that would mean partnering with a team, which opens up the possibility of losing. And Rolex does not lose.
The explosion of a star is a rare and spectacular phenomenon. It can occur when it reaches the latter stage of its life. It starts shining brightly before exploding in a cloud of dust, which typically contains around 100 billion stars.
The name chosen by Bell & Ross for this new family of watch replica es replica can be unpacked as follows: the prefix “nova”, is taken from supernova, the stars that illuminate the sky with extreme brightness at the end of their life; the suffix “rosa” is a tribute to the most feminine color and recalls the stardust caused by the explosion of a supernova, which often takes on this hue. The brand has chosen this color for the dials of the three watch replica es replica, which are decorated with a sunray pattern.
Aligned with the watch replica es replica in the existing collection, My Classima has sleek features: roman numerals, a date aperture at 3 o’clock, and a sophisticated steel case-known for its comfort on the wrist. This model comes equipped with a Swiss quartz movement guaranteeing reliability and precision. Designed for men and women, this watch replica offers three case sizes-40mm, 36.5mm and 31mm, with a mat white or sun satin blue dial (40 mm). Each model is proposed with a choice of a steel bracelet or a genuine leather strap, in timeless black (40mm) or an intense navy blue (36.5mm, 31mm).
In the coming year, perhaps more than ever, watch replica enthusiasts will be paying close attention to three elements: product, price, and brand history. In this respect, 2017 could turn out rather well for Baume & Mercier. Since 1830 the Geneva maison has endeavoured to provide authentic and creative luxury at a reasonable price. The collections presented at the SIHH make this point robustly: no more mega-complications, a moratorium on excessive embellishment, and a return to the Genevan values of horological good sense and watch replica es replica built to last. Baume & Mercier, never one to follow the currents of fashion, may find that the tide has turned in its favour.
