Bell & Ross BR 03-92 A522

Bell & Ross BR 03-92 A522 completes the series of Alpine timepieces, subtly adopting its colour and graphics while meeting the specifications of the team’s drivers. It is called A522, in reference to the current Alpine A522 racing car. Since its inception in 1994, Bell & Ross has been telling the time to fighter pilots,

Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Minute Repeater

Though frequently alluded to, the history of chiming watches at Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Minute Repeater is a subject that’s well worth restating. The family of Jules Audemars – including the eponymous co-founder’s father and grandfather – had substantial experience working on these complications: so much so that during the 19th century, historians estimate around

Bell & Ross BR S EAGLE

Well, we have another Bell & Ross timepiece in our Hands On corner. However, it is not all about complex complications or oversized masculine designs inspired by aviation. I believe there is no watch enthusiast unaware of the French origin luxury watchmaker and its bold timepieces inspired by the gauges found in the airplane cockpits.

HYT Supernova Blue Moon Runner

Recently, I published a story (it happens). The comments, at least some of them, expressed frustration over a couple of things (it happens).

Bell and Ross BR-X2 TOURBILLON

Of all the new “icons” to emerge since the rebirth of the mechanical wristwatch – and there are plenty when you factor in the Hublot Big Bang, the skeletal designs from Richard Mille, Franck Muller’s reinvention of the tonneau and others – Bell & Ross’ BR0 may be the most relevant. Why “relevant”? Because the

Bell and Ross BR-X1 TOURBILLON

Though probably best known for its more affordable, instrument-inspired pilot and field watches, French watchmaker Bell & Ross continues to assert itself as much more than a one-trick pony, with the latest addition to its BR-X “Experimental” collection: the wild Bell & Ross BR-X1 Skeleton Tourbillon Sapphire. Standouts in this sometimes divisive collection have included

BR 03 CHRONO

For the pilots’ watch review in our March-April issue, on sale now, writer Martina Richter selected two three-hand pilots’ watches and seven pilots’ chronographs to accompany a trio of pilots – aerobatics champion Klaus Lenhart and his protégés Axel Schütte and Andreas Langer − while they performed an aerobatic program, specially designed for our review,

Bell & Ross BR 03 GMT

Bell & Ross might not have been a part of Watches & Wonders, but who says you always need to go to the party to have fun? Instead, the Parisian brand has been slowly unveiling its 2021 novelties on its own terms – a new watch coming every few weeks, a steady drip of takes

Bell & Ross BR 03-92 DIVER

Introduced in 2022, the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver is not the brand’s first dive watch, but it is the first dive watch in their iconic square case. It is, in my opinion, a great success in balancing various design elements and themes as well as boldness and wearability. “Balance” is a word that
