Replica Bell & Ross watches take their exacting standards of legibility, functionality, precision and reliability from the first pillar of the design brief: military specifications. The second pillar is formed by the stylistic and societal codes that are reinterpreted to develop models which are both original and professional, while remaining faithful to their source of inspiration. Paying homage to the style of the racing drivers of the 1970s, the replica Bell Ross collection is even more exciting than it sounds.
With a light, 24 mm case in satin-finished stainless steel, the watch benefits from graduated tachymetric scale fixed bezels and an ultra-curved sapphire crystal, for enhanced resistance and excellent legibility. The spirit of the Seventies is further reinforced by the elegant satin-finished steel bezel, which provides a striking touch. With 60-minute gradations on the three-hand version, this elegant bezel indicates a tachymeter scale on the chronograph version, prioritizing the measurement of short time periods and enabling performance and speed to be read immediately. The replica Bell Ross comes with a lovely black dial, with metal numerals and indices. The pitch black dial provides a stark contrast to the steel color of the auxiliary counters and indices. The facetted, photo-luminescent, metallic hands (for hours and minutes) also play on this same contrast, offering perfect legibility.
Also worth mentioning are the metal skeleton Superluminova-filled hour and minute hands and a stunning graphic design reminiscent of the rev counters and dashboard instruments of 1970s classic cars. Lined with stitched leather and fitted with a signed, satin-finished steel folding buckle, the strap combines solidity with comfort and flexibility for an ultra-stylish look. The replica Bell Ross designed with a nostalgic glance back to the Seventies, for gentlemen drivers who like to live life in the fast lane.
