B&R Keeps On Keeping On With The WW1-92

October 12, 2011 . by John Biggs

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…

Bell & Ross Releases WWI Edition

September 20, 2011 . by John Biggs

Bell & Ross, not content to rest on their aviation laurels, has released the WWI-92 edition, a watch based on a World War I era pocket watch. The watch is strikingly simple – just a black face with silvered hands and case – and the 97 version has a reserve de marche and all models…

B&R Vintage Officer: Sexy

October 14, 2010 . by John Biggs

While I’ll admit that the words “vintage officer” make me think of a drunken war hero who graduated college, I’m quite enamored by the look of this new B&R chrono. It has a definite Speedmaster feel to it. Ir runs a nice ETA 2895 for the three hand version (the 123) and a 2894 for…

This is how you do Basel: Bell&Ross nails it

March 18, 2010 . by John Biggs

Man, Bell&Ross is going strong this year. I love the Military Ceramic BR 01 style beast now called the BR 03-92 with military band and I’m kind of liking the new series in chrono and three-hand form. I guess people were tired of having a big square thing on their wrists and wanted something more…

A Review of the Bell & Ross BR 01 92 Heritage

October 13, 2009 . by John Biggs

The look of the Bell & Ross BR-01 92 is based on the simple, clean design used on airplane instrumentation panels. The hands and numeral markers on these watches are recognizable as those on analog altimeters or airspeed indicators. The infamous square case of the BRs, with its four visible fastening screws, reflects the way…

Bell&Ross iPhone App, revisited

August 28, 2009 . by John Biggs

Yeah, I don’t know why they made an another iPhone app either. It seems, after noticing B&R style clocks on the HTC Hero, that there is a real fetish for interface designers over these things. That’s the only way I can explain it.

BR03 gets a bracelet

August 21, 2009 . by John Biggs

I’m totes down with B&R and this seems like a step in the right direction. This BR03, a bit smaller than the BR04, has a large steel bracelet that I always though was missing on the Bell&Ross jumbos. ABlogtoRead has the full dope on the watch.
