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 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 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 BR01 Red Radar

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.
