Bell & Ross

ZbBZ (Singapore) - - INTELLIGENCE -

In 2009, Bell & Ross made a last­ing im­pres­sion with its first BR 01, Skull, in trib­ute to the leg­endary parachutists of World War II who wore an in­signia bear­ing a skull and the words “Death from Above”, both to in­tim­i­date their op­po­nents and to ward off ill for­tune. Skull Bronze, an­other star in the BR 01 avi­a­tion se­ries, was un­veiled last year, as a cel­e­bra­tion of mil­i­tary sym­bol­ism and the art of tat­too­ing.This year, BR 01 Burn­ing Skull dis­plays the skull and cross­bones, per­fectly placed within the lines of the iconic square case of the Bell & Ross brand. The re­lief dial fea­tures hour and minute hands that re­veal other tra­di­tional mo­tifs from the mil­i­tary world: the dag­ger and the sword. Turn the watch over and the in­scrip­tions on the case-back seem to be taken from a real tat­too, with the curved let­ters ap­pear­ing to fol­low the con­tours of an arm.
