The world of aero­nau­tics has con­stantly sup­plied a wealth of in­ter­est­ing ideas for French com­pany Bell & Ross. in­ci­den­tally, mil­i­tary aviation emerges as the theme for this sand-colored chrono­graph, evoca­tive of the pi­lot suits fly­ing in desert cam­paigns, hence the name. What may look like a dimein-a-dozen dial ac­tu­ally takes on two over­lap­ping in­serts: The hour nu­mer­als and in­dexes on the beige up­per sec­tion are cut out, re­veal­ing the black pho­to­lu­mi­nes­cent coat­ing of the lower layer. This ac­counts for op­ti­mum leg­i­bil­ity dur­ing day­time as well as night­time. The chrono­graph func­tion is kept mod­est, with only a thirty-minute chrono­graph counter lo­cated at 9 o’clock. Other note­wor­thy fea­tures in­clude a date dis­play at 4.30 as well as the light black ce­ramic case.
