Not content with making me happy with their GMT, Bell&Ross has just released this weird piece for Colette, some sort of artsy shop in Paris. This is some kind of tribute to Airborne Rangers, I suspect, with a little skull and two sword hands. Not sure how much it would cost in Earth money but I’m willing to bet a few grand.

Is it just me or are these guys releasing a new model every fifteen seconds.

  1. this watch was released at Baselworld 2009 – it is a tribute to military paratroopers. You should see the watch at night – the entire skull is luminescent.

    The Airborne divisions were born during the Second World War. Their most famous motto was “Death from Above” symbolised by a skull that was a reminder to them of both their power and vulnerability. The skull is a constant reminder of the omnipresence of death on each military mission. By wearing the skull, the soldiers are attempting to both defy death and intimidate the enemy.
