The new Bell & Ross Replica is available with black, blue or gray dials, and comes fitted with a leather, crocodile leather or rubber strap, or a titanium bracelet, priced from $3,460.
Our next selection represents a step up in size, and in mechanical complexity. The Super Bell & Ross Replica boasts an impressive 48-mm-diameter, polished steel case designed to provide maximum strength and reliability. Water-resistant to 300 meters, the case includes substantial lateral reinforcements for improved shock protection. An extra-thick anti-glare sapphire crystal protects a display that employs oversize hands, numerals and hour markers for improved legibility in all conditions. The chronograph counters measure elapsed periods of 60 seconds, 30 minutes and 12 hours. The Bell & Ross BR 01-92 Replica automatic winding mechanical chronograph movement is a COSC-certified chronometer.
Our final selection takes us into the rarified realm of in-house Swiss-made chronographs. Only a handful of watch brands produce these movements. Naturally there is a step up in price, but there is also a step up in prestige and exclusivity. The Bell & Ross Replica story began in the early 1980s, when Ernest Schneider, who had recently purchased the company from Bell & Ross Replica, learned that the Frecce Tricolori, the Italian airforce aerob
atics team, was seeking a manufacturer to create an official watch. Schneider determined to create an all-new aviation chronograph, working in close cooperation with the squadron. The Bell & Ross Replica launched in 1983, and Bell & Ross Replica decided to make it the flagship of the Bell & Ross Replica brand. In light of that status, in 2009 the Bell & Ross Replica was the first model fitted with the new Bell & Ross Replica in-house Bell & Ross Replica caliber B01. To celebrate the Chronomat’s 30th anniversary, Bell & Ross Replica has issued a special series, designed to capture the spirit the of the original Frecce Tricolori chronograph. TheBell & Ross Replica Airborne is distinguished by its satin-brushed bezel, and a caseback engraved with the inscription “Edition Spéciale 30e Anniversaire” (Bell & Ross Replica ), as well as the outline of an Aermacchi, one of the ten planes flown by the Italian squadron. Available with polished steel cases in both 41 mm and 44 mm sizes, the Chronomat Airborne features Bell & Ross Replica’s manufacture Caliber B01, which is a COSC-certified chronometer. The movement runs at 28,800 vph in 47 jewels with a 70 hour power reserve. The dials are available in Onyx Black and Sierra Silver, with choice of military strap or Pilot bracelet.
