Watch With A Vroom

Plaza Watch International - - The Best of Baselworld 2014 - LC

Three years ago lead­ing aero­nau­ti­cal watch­maker Bell & Ross col­lab­o­rated with the Bri­tish team at Shaw Har­ley-David­son Speed & Cus­tom. The re­sult: the Nas­cafe Racer, a motorcycle which trav­elled a grand world tour win­ning prizes. This year the dy­namic duo went on with the even more em­blem­atic con­cept bike, B-Rocket, a jet-nosed hy­brid be­tween a air­plane and a motorcycle in­spired by the first jet planes se­cretly de­signed in the US in the 1960s. Now Bell & Ross re­leases two watches with the same theme: BR 01-94 B-Rocket as the ul­ti­mate watch for driv­ers, and the more elab­o­rate BR 03-90 B-Rocket. The for­mer is housed in a 46 mm case in stain­less steel. It has a chrono­graph and three dis­plays to keep the driver (wearer) up­dated. The lat­ter in 42 mm has a large date counter and a fuel gauge in­spired power-re­serve in­di­ca­tor. What th­ese both mono­chrome and mas­cu­line de­signed items share is the heart warm­ing, red tri­an­gle at 12 o’ clock – and the strap in padded black calf­skin.
