Bell & Ross has two new limited edition chronos produced for lifestyle pubs The Rake and Revolution that caught our eye today. Based on the 40mm Bellytanker, they’re named after the negroni (red) and spritz (orange) cocktails that, with any luck, we’ll be able to enjoy with friends again sooner rather than later.
Both models will be limited to 50 pieces each, so this is not one of those “limited” releases with suspiciously large production runs. Says the pubs:
One of the hardest things to do is to design an original sports chronograph without essentially replicating the Rolex Daytona or Omega Speedmaster… Then we began the design process, which is when we discovered that a negroni possesses a color unique in the world. It is neither red nor orange, and depending on how the light hits, it can have an amber halo, and even pockets of deep ruby red.
Another difference between the Daytona, Speedmaster, and the Bellytanker, including these limited edition pieces: price. These will retail for $4500.
I think my personal tastes run toward cooler rather than warmer dials, but for someone who is looking to add a splash of color to their collection these may fit the bill.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
