BURN­ING DE­SIRE

The Peak (Malaysia) - - The Brief -

Feel the heat with Bell & Ross’ fiery piece.

When Bell & Ross in­tro­duced the BR 01 Skull Bronze back in 2009, mil­i­tary en­thu­si­asts im­me­di­ately stood at at­ten­tion for this trib­ute to the fear­less Amer­i­can parachutists of World War II, who de­scended onto the beaches of Nor­mandy like dark an­gels. Em­bla­zoned on their jump­suits were a men­ac­ing skull and the phrase ‘Death from Above’pow­er­ful words that struck both fear and awe in the hearts of their en­e­mies.

To hon­our th­ese elite troops fur­ther, Bell & Ross as­tutely paired their in­trepid and bold spirit with the de­fi­ant at­ti­tude of tat­toos in the BR 01 Burn­ing Skull. Much like how the Al­lied Forces de­feated its en­e­mies, this fiery watch se­cures at­ten­tion with tat­too de­signs etched onto ev­ery sur­face of the 46mm steel case. It’s a com­pelling me­mento mori as sym­bols per­tain­ing to mor­tal­ity, such as the heart, rose, scythe and hour­glass, lay hid­den in the en­grav­ings rem­i­nis­cent of hell­fire. Each line is man­u­ally filled with black ink that fur­ther en­hances the black Su­per-Lu­miNova dial stamped with a grin­ning metal skull. Pow­ered by a cal­i­bre BR-CAL.302, the BR 01 Burn­ing Skull is des­tined to lend its fiery spirit to only 500 im­pas­sioned in­di­vid­u­als.
