Originally, a team of designers and aircraft control specialists came together for a singular project: creating watches perfectly suited to professional use. Their ambition was to be part of the great Swiss watch-making tradition while meeting the demands of men facing extreme situations. Today astronauts, pilots, divers and bomb-disposal experts use Bell & Ross watches as a tool on their missions. To ensure that a watch perfectly meets its wearer’s expectations, Bell & Ross gathers a team of experts with complementary skills. Professional users, designers, engineers and master watchmakers combine their skills and experience with a sole objective in mind – to create a utilitarian watch – with the motto that the essential is never compromised by the superfluous. Designed for professionals who demand optimal reliability, Bell & Ross watches meet four fundamental principles: readability, performance, precision and water-resistance. Thus, every detail has its purpose, its function. This technical exactness is expressed through pure lines and timeless elegance.
