Mention Bell & Ross and the first thing that comes to your mind: square watches. The signature is known to mimic vintage WWII airplane instruments, those square altimeters and compass found in early plane designs. But Bell & Ross has a few surprises up its sleeves, notably, two round style watches. These designs are limited editions, a round among a sea of squares. The Bell & Ross BRWW2 model features a high-quality polished pink gold round case and un-bordered subdials to give it an elegant soft touch. Only 99 pieces are made worldwide. Similarly, the Bell & Ross BR126 Flyback features an orange themed central seconds and minutes dials to highlight the chronograph movement, and an orange canvas strap. The watch has a sloped flange ring around the hands for better visual and bold appearance.
Bell & Ross is available at Shreve & Co. on Post Street, San Francisco.
