Bell & Ross Launch Radar-Themed Timepiece

By P. Joseph

Watch company Bell & Ross have taken their aviation-inspired watch range to the next level by creating a timepiece that incorporates an aeroplane radar.

Part of the company’s 2011 Collection, the BR-01 watch was inspired by the instruments in an airplane cockpit – and now the company have created a spin-off version called the BR-01 Radar.

Limited to 999 pieces, the watch displays the time using three discs, each marked with a coloured line to indicate a unit of time, emulating the sweeping light beam of a radar screen.

The watch runs on a modified ETA 2892-A2 automatic calibre, offering a power reserve of around 42 hours, and comes with a 46mm square case fitted with a sapphire crystal and screw-locking crown.

As an added bonus, the watch is accompanied by removable lugs and specialized tools, enabling owners to configure it as an automatic winding desk clock.

Headed by Swiss designers Bruno Belamich and Carlos A. Rosillo, Bell & Ross was founded in 1992.
