Bell & Ross Vintage BR Aéronavale coalesces functionality and elegance in one sleek timepiece

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.

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.
