2017 Basel­world Pre­view

A sneak peek into the lat­est show-stop­ping pieces from the world’s best watch fair

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - TIMEPIECES -


What started out as a project to de­velop time­pieces suited for pro­fes­sional use turned into a big watch brand today, known for its his­tory in avi­a­tion and mil­i­tary spec­i­fi­ca­tions. Bell & Ross re­leased its iconic square watch with graphic lines in 2005, with an essen­tial point of ref­er­ence in the field of pro­fes­sional avi­a­tion time­pieces. This year, the brand re­leases the BR03-02 Horolum with a con­tem­po­rary-styled case rem­i­nis­cent of the clocks in air­craft cock­pits. This min­i­mal­ist Bauhausin­spired de­sign was es­tab­lished as early as in the 20s, and formed the foun­da­tion of mod­ern de­sign. For the “night owls”, this may just be the per­fect time­piece as it evokes light and read­abil­ity. Su­per­lu­mi­nova coat­ing fa­cil­i­tates read­ing by day and night, and the colour (in­tense green) used to light up air­port run­ways can be found on the dial of this spec­tac­u­lar time­piece. The dial is made of mi­cro-blasted brass-rhodium, formed by two su­per­im­pos­ing metal plates with a sand­wich con­struc­tion.
