Inspired by aeronautical instrumentation's design and technology, Bell & Ross' latest timepiece, the Vintage BR Aéronavale, is one worthy addition that oozes timelessness and military excellence. In a colour palette similar to a naval air force pilot's sleek blue uniform and gold of the wings, trim, and buttons, the Vintage BR Aéronavale evokes an air of military prestige, poise, and victory.

Symbol of military excellence: Bell & Ross Vintage BR Aéronavale

Bell & Ross has added two new models to the Vintage BR Aéronavale collection: a chronograph and three-hand small seconds. A 43mm polished steel case features gilt skeletonised hour and minute hands that are a bold contrast against the navy blue sunray dial. Designed and crafted for pilots, this timepiece marries functionality and elegance in one. Its two additional counters feature snailed guilloché and a 60-minute graduated bezel in blue anodised aluminium, while the ultra-curved sapphire crystal hints of the classic style and strength of the watch. Spot the Switzerland-made mechanical movements with automatic winding through a transparent case-back—a highlight of its reliability and accuracy. Bell & Ross Vintage BR Aéronavale is available in a distressed blue calfskin strap with cinnamon stitching, or a midnight blue alligator strap with a pin buckle clasp.
