Bell & Ross 123 and 126 Vintage Officer line

Bell & Ross has designed the VINTAGE COLLECTION as an homage to the aviators of the 1940’s, who were the first professionals to use the wristwatch as a tool on their missions.

The brightly polished, luxurious contours of the new VINTAGE OFFICER watches give these professional instruments an elegant appearance. Their impeccable finish is a reminder that attention is paid to every detail when producing exceptional watches.


The watches in the Bell & Ross VINTAGE COLLECTION share the same characteristics, particulary their inspiration, shape and movement:
• The traditional shape of the round case is reminiscent of period wristwatches while its ergonomic design is
compatible with the comfort expected by modern wearers.
• The domed crystal recalls the crystals of the 1940’s. Unlike the original, however, it is produced using extremely
strong sapphire as a result of improved production techniques.
• The refined dial graphics optimize readability, taking their inspiration from cockpit instruments.
• A choice of two quality Swiss movements: an hours, minutes and seconds version (BR 123) and a chronograph version (BR 126).

The OFFICER line, elegant finishes

The new VINTAGE OFFICER watches are functional models whose elegance is derived as much from its simple shape as from its quality finish and materials.
• The polished steel case gives this sophisticated watch a stylish sheen, accentuating its shape with panache.
• Two dials with traditional finishes:
SILVER: faithful to period watches, the silver sunburst dial subtly produces opalescent reflections. The watch’s hands, numerals and index are a singularly elegant tone-on-tone steel.
BLACK: for perfect readability, the steel hands and index on this model contrast with the black dial, reflecting the principles of readability found in professional instrument panel components. This elegantly subdued watch with its refined sunburst dial is timelessly chic.
The final touch – the watch’s alligator strap serves to enhance the cachet of this top-of-the-line model.

Refined style
A new creation in the VINTAGE COLLECTION, the VINTAGE OFFICER watches are distinguished by their unpretentious luxury. True to their vintage spirit, they can nonetheless be clearly identified as Bell & Ross watches.
