Wave contemporary jewellery is pleased to announce further to its visit in Baselworld 2009 (switzerland ) that it has secured a number of the new Bell & Ross
Following in their tradition of presenting professional grade mechanical timepieces, Swiss luxury watch brand Bell & Ross will unveil a new Instrument BR model at Baselworld 2009. Inspired by the instrumentation found on 1940's military aircraft, the Bell & Ross Instrument BR Heritage watch presents a combination of distinctive design elements that pay homage to historical precedents. In the manner of all Bell & Ross timepieces, it also reflects a commitment to the foremost techniques of modern watchmaking.
The Bell & Ross Instrument BR Heritage watch will be produced in both the XXL 46mm "BR 01" and 42mm "BR 03" variations, to accommodate all wrist sizes and preferences. The cases are precisely manufactured from 316L stainless steel. Once fully machined and complete, these cases are bead blasted and finished with a matte black carbon powder coating for complete negation of light reflection. Equally functional for its reduction to the essential is the matte black dial displaying a distinctive sand-colored luminous material that is unique to this model. The knurled crown--of screw-down design in the BR 01 model--is secured against penetration by dust and moisture; it joins together with a screw-secured solid steel caseback to ensure water resistance to 100 meters. Effortless comprehension of the time is ensured by a flat sapphire crystal that is treated to minimize reflectivity.
Animating both versions of the Bell & Ross BR Heritage watch is the time-tested ETA 2892 caliber. This self-winding movement offers a power reserve of approximately 42 hours, and is equipped with a stop-seconds feature for the sweep second hand. In the BR 03 Heritage model, a rapidly adjustable date display is present.
The Bell & Ross Instrument BR Heritage watches are completed by a vintage-styled tan leather strap stamped with the Bell & Ross logo and the notation "Aviation Type-Military Spec" and a broad tang buckle in powder-coated stainless steel. These straps may be easily changed in moments for an alternative version in heavy duty synthetic fabric.
