Bell & Ross WW2 Bomber FR

2013 April 15

Bell & Ross a présenté bon nombre de nouveaux modèles originaux ces derniers temps et s’éloigne de ses modèles Instrument testés et approuvés pour offrir des montres originales. L’année dernière, la collection WW1 est apparue sur le marché, inspirée par les premières montres à bracelet qui étaient elles-mêmes une adaptation de la montre de poche, qu’on utilisait souvent pendant la Première Guerre mondiale. Cette année, le thème militaire vintage se poursuit avec l’arrivée de la WW2 Bomber Regulateur, une montre plutôt singulière conçue pour imiter un minuteur de bombe qu’on utilisait particulièrement durant la Deuxième Guerre mondiale.

Bell & Ross Turn Coordinator FR

2013 April 01

Une autre année s'est écoulée et comme chaque année, Bell & Ross a lancé des instruments en édition limitée. La sortie chaque saison de nouvelles séries de variations du modèle BR01 est désormais une tradition et vise à maintenir l'intérêt des collectionneurs pour cette collection toujours aussi populaire. Cette année, nous attendons trois nouvelles versions qui sont un hommage aux authentiques instruments de l'aviation: la Horizon, la Altimeter et la Turn Coordinator. Les modèles Horizon et Altimeter sortiront très prochainement; entre-temps, nous avons reçu la Turn Coordinator, une pièce qui s'inspire de l'indicateur à disque des modèles Compass et Radar, repensée pour 2012.

Bell & Ross WW1 Monopoussoir

2012 October 03

The WW1 series has been garnering a lot of accolades for Bell & Ross. A break from their “traditional” Instruments, the WW1 collection has a unique style that ends up being a very distinctive dress watch. Styled to resemble pocket watches converted into wristwatches (complete with add-on strap lugs) the WW1s are quite unique in the market – the closest comparison I can think of would be the Panerai Radiomir with its wire lugs and cushion case. This year BR expanded the collection by adding several new versions, including the 42mm Argentium and Jump Hour models, and the 45mm Monopusher (officially called the Monopoussoir). These models mark a significant step upmarket for Bell & Ross.

Bell & Ross Turn Coordinator

2012 August 10

Another year, and another series of Bell & Ross Instrument limited editions are out. It’s been a tradition for the company to release a new series of variations on the BR01 theme each season to renew interest in the ever-popular collection and give something for collectors to drool over. This year we had three new versions to look forward to, all paying homage to genuine aircraft instruments – the Horizon, the Altimeter, and the Turn Coordinator. The Horizon and Altimeter are forthcoming; in the meantime we have received the Turn Coordinator, a model that takes the disc-based time display of the Compass and Radar models and updates it for 2012.

New Bell & Ross WW2 Bomber Regulateur

2012 July 16

Bell & Ross has been releasing many new and distinctive watches lately, departing from their tried-and-true Instrument series to offer some more unique timepieces. Last year we saw the release of the WW1 series, inspired by early wristwatches adapted from pocket watches often used during the First World War. This year they continue the vintage military theme with the introduction of the WW2 Bomber Regulateur, a rather strange watch designed to emulate a particular style of timing instrument used during the Second World War.

New Bell & Ross BR02 Divers

2012 June 15

Bell & Ross is best known for it’s Instrument series of watches, but they produce a number of interesting designs. It’s the price of their fame – the massive popularity of the Instrument has overshadowed a lot of their other offerings, which is a shame as Bell & Ross produces some very interesting watches - that aren’t square. One of my favourites outside of the Instrument collection is the BR02 Diver, a massive 44mm tonneau-shaped tool watch that stands out in a sea of ho-hum dive watch designs.

Bell & Ross Promotion - BR03-90 Power Reserve

2012 May 16

Bell & Ross BR01 Red Radar

2012 March 30

Matt Baily was the first Bell & Ross retailer in Canada, and we have witnessed the evolution of the company from a quirky producer of professional watches into a powerhouse brand driven by distinctive industrial designs. Their BR01 and BR03 Instrument series are still the benchmark for modern military-industrial watches. To keep the design fresh, Bell & Ross has introduced numerous colour variations and complications over the years; the Red Radar limited edition in particular has garnered a lot of press in the watch media as a seriously cool design that takes the Instrument to another level.

New Bell & Ross WW1 Military and Heritage

2011 December 05

Bell & Ross watches have long been a Montreal favourite. We were the first dealer in Canada for the brand, and had them before they released their iconic Instrument series. Nowadays the Instrument is BR’s flagship, but they also produce a series of interesting round designs in the Vintage series. The latest additions to the Vintage line are the WW1 wristwatches, a series inspired by very early military watches that were adapted from pocketwatches.

Bell & Ross Military Ceramic

2011 September 12

Ceramic is the latest trend in watch technology, having been dormant for many years (ceramic watches first emerged in the 1960s). The recent popularity of ceramic watches like the Chanel J12, not to mention the ceramic accents on high-tech watches from Hublot and Audemars Piguet, has created a demand for more and more ceramic designs from a variety of manufacturers. Entering the fray is Bell & Ross with a variety of new ceramic models, including the BR03-92 Military Ceramic (green, as we have here, and blue due later this year) and the upcoming BR01-92 Ceramic.

Watches in Depth - The Tourbillon

2011 August 15

When it comes to complications, the tourbillon is the top tier of the watchmaker’s art. It is one of the most difficult complications to execute, one of the most expensive to buy, and one of the most superfluous in function. Tourbillons have had a sort of renaissance in the last 20 years, with ever more exotic and exponentially more complex variants, but the basic principle dates back to the 18th century when Abraham Louis Breguet was looking for a way to beat gravity.

Video Review of New Bell & Ross BR 03-94 Phantom

2010 June 23

Perhaps the most popular Bell & Ross watch last year was the BR 03-92 Phantom. To follow up that success, the company released the chronograph version of the 42mm Phantom this year. The name derives from the fact that these watches are theoretically invisible. All the elements including the hour markers and hands are jet black. If it were not for the slight relief and difference in textures of the components of the face, the time would be illegible during the day. Once the shock caused by the odd dial wears off, however, the time is rather clear. In the dark a bright contrast is offered by the highly luminescent markers, which glow with a strong, dark green light. This monochromatic style was developed by Bell & Ross as an homage to military stealth, but ironically works very well at attracting the gaze of curious watch enthusiasts.

Video Review of New Bell & Ross BR 03-92 and BR 03 94 Heritage

2010 June 23

Bell & Ross created a very strong buzz at Baselworld 2010 in March thanks to the multitude of great, new watches that they released. Amongst these are two BR 03, 42mm square Instruments based on the Heritage style that was introduced the year before. I wrote about the BR 03 Heritage models in a previous post on the Baily Blog, so I will not go into details here. A simple three-hand and a chronograph version are offered. Both are showcased in the video below.

Video Reviews of New Bell & Ross Watches Coming Soon!

2010 June 19

During a visit to Paris two weeks ago I was lucky to be invited to visit Bell & Ross at their communication offices in the storied centre of the city. Mr. Roberto Passariello and Ms. Axelle Rogan were very welcoming and showed me the new models in full detail. I filmed the meeting and will be posting the watch presentations of individual Bell & Ross watches in the coming days.

Bell & Ross BR 03 Heritage Watches

2010 May 18

Bell & Ross was one of the most talked about brands at Baselworld 2010. This is thanks to some fantastic and defining novelties such as the BR 03-92 military Ceramic and an entire new collection of vintage-inspired timepieces. Because of this, some of the BR 03 novelties were somewhat overshadowed, but for Bell & Ross fans like us their release was very exciting. The BR 03 Heritage models are amongst these low-flying novelties. They depict the style of the larger BR 01 Heritage that enjoyed much success over the past six months. A three-hand and chronograph version, previously unavailable in the larger BR 01 size, were presented.

Bell & Ross BR 03-94 Phantom Chronograph

2010 May 17

Having seen it at Baselworld 2010 and not having the time to go back to the Bell & Ross booth to take a picture of it, I have been awaiting this moment impatiently. Finally Bell & Ross has released official images of this awesome little number, the BR 03-94 Phantom.

Bell & Ross BR-S Ceramic For the Mother of Your Children

2010 May 06

After the children's celebration of Mother's Day, featuring cards adorned with macaroni, breakfasts in bed, and adorable proud faces how does one show his appreciation for the mother of his children? A beautiful, luxury Bell & Ross watch like those in the BR-S Ceramic collection is a decisively good start!

Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Military Ceramic

2010 April 16

In the past few years Bell & Ross has been testing the waters with several watches made of or with ceramic. The BR-03 White Ceramic and BR-S Ceramic models are examples that pleased many watch buyers. These buyers are in search of the quality of high-end watches adorned with the unique esthetic characteristics of ceramic. At the Baselworld 2010 fair in Switzerland, a new Bell & Ross ceramic watch was released that takes advantage of this hot substance in ways that are more suited to the company's design philosophy. The Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Military Ceramic showcases the material's technical qualities alongside its esthetic qualities.

The Three Bell & Ross Square BR Instrument Watches

2010 February 26

Bell & Ross has always moved forward as a company, but it has done so in small(ish), cautious steps. This has been a key to their success and contrasts other companies like Frank Muller for instance, who's quick growth troubled them and saw thousands of their watches sold "dumped" on the grey market. The BR Instrument was an primary player in Bell & Ross' climb to fame. When it first came out it was embraced by watch lovers despite its squareness, size, and ultra-sporty, military styling. Once the watch's acceptance was evident, Bell & Ross branched into other versions of the Instrument including the smaller BR-03. Some successful experimentation with the ceramic and the BR-03 92 frame, eventually led to the creation of the BR-S ceramics. The trifecta was complete. These three different Instruments cover all the bases in terms of satisfying fans of the square Bell & Ross watches.

Bell & Ross BR Minuteur Tourbillon Pink Gold Limited Edition

2010 February 09

Once a masterpiece is conceived in the mind of the artist, it takes time and care to completed it. It must satisfy the stringent demands and expectations of collectors. It took most of a year since Bell & Ross unveiled their Minuteur models for the first one to be available to the public, but for thirty lucky collectors it will be worth the wait.

A History of Bell & Ross at Matt Baily

2010 January 06

In 2004, Bell & Ross was a sleeping giant. Matt Baily caught on early to their potential, and joined their retailer network in time to witness one of the greatest success stories of the modern watch industry. Now recognizable all over the country, it wasn't so when Matt Baily Marchand de Montres et Bijoux became the first Canadian dealer of Bell & Ross in 2004. The Montreal boutique remained the sole retailer to sell the watches in Canada until the introduction of the BR Instruments exploded their popularity in later years. As an employee of Matt Baily, I witnessed the company"s transformation watch by watch.

Top 5 List of Watches that Changed the Way We Look at Luxury Timepieces

2009 November 16

For over five years, Matt Baily has set itself apart from other watch stores in Montreal by bringing in exciting, new, up-and-coming brands. When looking at a possible new brand to carry, quality is the first prerequisite and is followed by value and potential. This is how we took up dealership of brands like Bell & Ross and U-Boat for which we were the first dealers in Canada. With this list, we highlight five watches from our collections that have swayed trends and turned the most heads.

New Bell & Ross Limited Edition Radar Watch

2009 October 27

Bell & Ross recently published a new catalogue dedicated solely to their limited edition models of luxury watches. Everything from the Phantoms to the Grand Minuteurs are included and accompanied by a brief description of each watch and its features. Some models have long been sold out, while some like the BR-01 92 and 94 Carbon Fiber models are not yet available. Among the new models that are not yet available, my favorite is the BR-01 92 Radar.

Review of the Bell & Ross Vintage 123 Collection

2009 October 22

Before the BR-01 Instrument was released by Bell & Ross, their most popular watches were probably those in the Vintage collection. The Vintage 123 - thanks to its considerably smaller price tag than the BR Instruments and timeless styling and elegance of the Fifties and Sixties - is perfect for the first time buyer of luxury watches. The avid watch lover or collector will also find that it suits his or her desire for quality, tantalizing finish, and details.

New Bell & Ross BR 01 All Carbon Fiber Watches

2009 October 17

Featured in a photo within the latest Swiss edition of Revolution magazine, is the brand new Bell & Ross BR-01 94 all-carbon-fiber watch. These new models have slipped through the cracks since they were spotted at last year's Baselworld fair. Now new pictures are available and the new all carbon fiber BR 01s are official.

New Bell & Ross Airborne Diamond Studded Models

2009 October 08

The Bell & Ross watch that turned the most heads this year is definitely the limited edition BR-01 Airborne. Even if the skull and bones dial put a few people off at first, the story behind the design won many of them over. Two new diamond-set versions of the watch will be released in limited editions of 99 pieces each. 415 or 672, full-cut, hand-set, black and clear diamonds will adorn the cases of the two models. Their names are simply the BR 01 Airborne 415 and BR 01 Airborne 672.

The BR 01 94 Pro Titanium: A Symbol of Bell & Ross' Philosophy

2009 October 01

Bell & Ross has always manufactured watches to be fit for professional use. To assure this its designers and engineers adhere to four guiding principles. These are water resistance, precision, readability (legibility at a glance), and performance. The help of military, safety, and health professionals is often enlisted to ensure that these aspects are incorporated in each watch. The BR-01 94 Pro Titanium is a symbol of the French manufacturer's four guiding principles.

Bell & Ross Introduces a New, Slimmer Phantom

2009 September 11

It's easy to see why the BR-01 Phantoms were so popular. Being amongst the first watches to offer black, luminescent hour markers is one of the reasons. The intrigue and conversation value that an all-black watch offers is another. Now, while other companies are still releasing all-black versions of their models, Bell & Ross takes a simple yet brilliant step onwards by designing an all-white Phantom watch.

Bell & Ross BR-S White Ceramic Gold VS. Chanel J12 ref. H2180

2009 August 13

In the past year, the usage of ceramic has been greatly popularized by brands such as Chanel, Hublot, and Bell & Ross. Although its benefits were known to the watch world for many years, it is only recently that the general, watch-loving public has become appreciative of the material's qualities. Chanel has offered the J12 ceramic watch for many years now. Bell & Ross, while comparably a newcomer to the ceramic game, have slightly preceded the boom with the production of the BR-03 Ceramic. I have chosen to compare two popular models from Chanel and Bell And Ross in order to highlight the advantages and allure of ceramic on watches.

I Have a Small Wrist

2009 May 04

I hear these words from about 70% of the men that come into Matt Baily to try on watches. This is a misperception, as most of these men actually have an average size wrist. A few even have some pretty large wrists. Perhaps a pamphlet should be created to put wrist sizes in perspective. The only source I could find for data is from Statistics Canada, which states that the average diameter of a 19 year old man is just over 6.5 inches. I estimate that about 60% of all men's wrists that I see in the store are between 6 3/4 and 7 1/4 inches.

Pro Titanium robust durable and light!

2008 December 17

The latest in the line of Instruments to come out from Bell & Ross is the Pro Titanium BR01 94. Fashioned from the BR01 46mm size Instruments, but with a much more robust and rugged bezel, which is in line of the BR01 Tourbillon.

Women living large

2008 November 28

The large watch fashion trend is still going strong. It makes quite the fashion statement when you see an elegantly dressed woman or celebrity wearing a large sporty timepiece. It exudes confidence and attitude, while still being functional and incredibly easy to read.

Size does matter

2008 November 19

Women are getting more and more into wearing a men's full size watches. It is extremely fashionable to wear a large high-end timepiece, the term a men's or women's watch is out the window. Bell & Ross has a new model that has elegance and beauty with the 39mm square size that is comfortable for either sex to appreciate.

Lets not tell time!

2008 October 31

One of the hottest things in the watch market today is the all black or Phantom type watches. There are a few companies manufacturing these models promoting the unreadability and unusual style.

Strap Field Test - How water affects watch straps

2008 September 25

This summer I had the chance to stage field studies on how different types of watch bands fare in water. You may own a water resistant watch, but if you don't have the right kind of strap on it you don't want to get it wet.

Are you buying from an Authorized dealer

2008 September 25

Internet sales are definitely on the rise. If you Google a watch company, you will get pages of sites offering watches. Here's a little lesson in online shopping.

Mainstream is on its way out!

2008 September 13

As the high-end market continues to flourish in these economic hard times, the watch trend is really going towards people wanting to wear something no one else has. The days of wearing a Rolex has been termed as a Texas Timex. In the past it seemed like as soon as you made a little success for yourself, one of the first thing you did is go out and get a Rolex. Although Rolex, Breitling and Cartier will always own a huge chunk of the market, Bell & Ross, Corum, U-Boat are creeping up and becoming in demand.

What to do when water gets in your watch!

2008 August 20

Sometimes we get a little careless, especially when we're on vacation and everything is relaxed. On a nice hot sunny day, you decide to go for a refreshing swim, but you forget to check that your screw down crown is not properly screwed in. You do a couple laps, you notice that the timepiece is all fogged up, or has water inside the case.

Beware! The real truth about purchasing a watch outside of Canada

2008 August 14

I know you've been tempted seeing a watch in the islands or at duty free shops. What a great deal, I'll just put it on, and tell customs it's my watch if asked. The reality is, it is a criminal offense to not declare any luxury goods over $2,000.00.

The Final Word from Basel

2008 April 11

The Baselworld fair has come to an end. Hundreds of thousands of industry experts and watch enthusiasts have witnessed one of the world's most revered trade shows. Upon his return, Matt was very excited over all the new Bell & Ross pieces, and in awe of the new Concord C1 tourbillon. The new direction that Alpina is taking with their manufacture movement came up more then once. Matt was also impressed by several new jewelry collections that have been released by Calgaro and Pianegonda, which I will write about in my next blog.

Unforgettable Win for the Montreal Canadiens

2008 February 20

The Montreal Canadiens Stage a Spectacular Record-Braking Comeback. Last night was by far the most exciting night of hockey that I've witnessed since Jacques Demers called Marty McSorley on an illegal stick in 1993. What I saw was our Montreal Canadiens staging a miracle comeback from a five goal deficit, at the Bell Centre, against the New York Rangers. Then, as if that was not enough, Captain Koivu beat Lundqvist in the shootout to win the game.

Water-resistance: 100m under water equals 11kg of pressure!

2008 February 07

Water-resistance means a watch is sealed against dust and water. It refers to the pressure the watch can withstand, measured in atmospheres or bars. Pressure is a force applied to a surface where 1 bar = 1 kg / sq. cm.

Bell and Ross BR03 51 GMT: Sexy, Light, and Priced Just Right

2008 February 05

The Bell & Ross BR03 51 GMT is not only an extremely stylish piece, with its light weight titanium case, carbon fiber dial and orange hand on its second time zone dial , but it is a very complicated watch for the money. Not only does it have the two independent time zone dials but it also has a large double wheel date. Every watch enthusiast knows that every little complication added to a mechanical watch, increases the watches price.

Bell and Ross Creates a Dashboard Clock for Peugeot

2008 January 31

In 2006, Bell and Ross teamed up with Peugeot to create a stylish, aerodynamic dashboard clock. Since then, the timepiece has remained a constant fixture in their concept cars.

Noteworthy, and still to our liking here at Matt Baily.
