The year 2011 is a watershed year in the history of Bell & Ross. A master of military-inspired watchmaking, the Franco-Swiss brand is once again setting the pace by updating the 1920s timepieces that were fi rst worn on the wrist to today's tastes. Bell & Ross is thus paying tribute to military timepiece history by introducing a pocket watch transformed into a wristwatch - the Vintage WW1.
The Vintage WW1 model clearly stands out as a reincarnation of the past into the present. A large diameter fob style case, horns welded to the case that are used as lugs, elegant, robust leather straps, an extremely readable dial, a fl uted crown that is easy to handle with gloves, a top quality mechanical movement.
