Bell & Ross is known for its exceptional timepieces, particularly the bold square BR01 collection of watches. Now, the brand unveils the BR01 Skull Bronze — a new icon whose bronze 46mm case references the legendary military codes of the past, but in contemporary style.
In 2009, Bell & Ross introduced its first Skull BR 01 watch — a talisman timepiece that keeps collectors coming back. This new version, with its distinctive character, pays tribute to the parachutists of the Second World War. On their jump-suits, these elite fighters wore a crest bearing a skull and the words: "Death from Above." Today, the emblem of the skull continues to figure on a lot of military equipment, and this watch pays tribute to that.
The BR 01 houses a self-winding movement. A screw-down crown makes the watch water resistant to 100 meters. The watch features golden indices shaped like spikes. The skull in the middle of the dial glows in the dark thanks to the use of applied B-light photoluminescent pigment, and a special tanning technique has been used on the leather strap to give it a worn effect. Just 500 pieces will be made. We have a nice collection of Bell & Ross watches that we invite you in to see anytime you want.
