Bell & Ross has launched a watch to honor the 1920s and the vintage era called the WW2 Military Tourbillon model.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, a watch was worn like a jewel. Lightness and carefreeness were the keywords.
The World War I came up and turned this state of grace upside down transforming watchmaking and making it more adapted to our common life. Watches became objects of the everyday life and answered our needs of reliability, feature, precision and robustness.
The latest creation from Bell & Ross is a tribute to this period. It is a very unique reinterpretation of the past through this exceptional timepiece.
One clock, four complications
The Bell & Ross Vintage WW2 Military Tourbillon watch is a limited piece to 20 copies which integrates four complications inside the titanium case of 45 mm.
This timepiece is equipped with a protective cover looking like some watches of the 1920s, which were equipped with a fence to protect the dial.
The removable cover of the WW2 Military Tourbillon has no longer a protective role because sapphire glass has become very strong and offers a perfect protection to most of the watches.
Moreover this cover enhances the readability of the dial.
This very special edition of Bell & Ross houses a tourbillon, a regulator, an indicator of accuracy and a power reserve. The materials used to build this piece are very contemporary, therefore it is a very modern watch turned towards the future.
By integrating these four complications, the Vintage WW2 Military Tourbillon watch gives a new look to high watchmaking, while remaining faithful to the military inspiration.
