Another day, another Bell&Ross. I’ve always loved B&R and I’m still loving them thanks to their new WWI line. They kind of blew their wad on the square BR line so they moved into a more heritage look and I’m glad they did. The WW1-92 is a circular watch with a huge diameter and faux wire lugs that simulate the original pilots watches from way back when.
As you’ll recall, aviator watches were actually pocketwatches with welded lugs so flyboys could wear them in the air. An original WW1 type pocketwatch is fairly rare but it’s nice to see B&R recreating the look with a little panache. The watch is a bit boring – three handers don’t do it for me – but they’re quite striking.
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.
