The 1960s was an era of creativity and groundbreaking work, which saw the creation of the famous Mystère-Falcon 20 by Dassault, arguably the best business jet in its period. Bell and Ross, the French watch company with a heritage and identity closely tied to aviation, pays a special homage to the 60’s with its new Vintage Collection BR 126 Sport Heritage watch. The 41mm polished steel case emulates the fashion of that time with its oversized numerals and index indicators, black bezel with 60 minute gradation, as well as sand-colored hands with photoluminescent coating. The self-winding mechanical movement supports the watch’s multiple functions including hours, minutes, seconds, date, and 30-minute and 60-second counters. The rubber-strapped (or steel bracelet) timepiece is protected by anti-reflective sapphire crystal and 100m water resistance. Let the good old times inspire you for greater creativity ahead.
