DESCRIPTION

  • AVIATION COLLECTION - BASEL 2012

    FROM THE COCKPIT TO THE WRIST

    BELL & ROSS AND AERONAUTICAL INSTRUMENTATION


    The AVIATION collection is directly inspired by the instrumentation of aircraft cockpits and addresses four fundamental requirements: legibility, functionality, precision and water-resistance.

    In 2005, the BR 01 was inspired by the cockpit clocks of 1970s airplanes. This iconic watch was produced using high-tech materials and complications reflecting the finest Haute Horlogerie craftsmanship.

    Exploring aeronautical navigation instruments further, Bell & Ross developed two completely new high-tech models – the BR01 COMPASS and RADAR – in 2010 and 2011, respectively. With these two models, Bell & Ross conceptualized an entirely new way of reading time.

    The result was a collection of exclusive watches with an innovative display of uncompromising legibility, an absolute necessity for professionals and for every Bell & Ross watch.

    THREE WATCHES INSPIRED BY THE INSTRUMENT PANEL


    In 2012, as part of its continuing quest for innovation and performance, Bell & Ross introduces three new versions inspired by aeronautical instrumentation with a particular focus on the instruments vital to air navigation: the BR01 HORIZON, the BR01 ALTIMETER, and the BR01 TURN COORDINATOR.

    In the cockpit, the essential instruments are laid out in a t shape for optimal legibility. They are grouped according to their function and importance and include essential tools for flying (attitude indicator, altimeter, etc.) and navigation (compass, turn coordinator, etc.).
     
    • The attitude indicator makes it possible to monitor the aircraft’s position relative to the horizon, whatever the visibility conditions.

    • The altimeter calculates the aircraft’s altitude based on the measurement of atmospheric pressure. It is a valuable instrument for determining altitude based on a reference point: i.e. the ground, the sea (altitude measurement) or an isobaric surface.

    • The turn coordinator indicates flight symmetry, without which the aircraft slides or slips. the turn indicator is a gyroscope used to visualize the rate of turn (roll). It features a bearing that moves in a curved tube to represent the aircraft’s sideslip. The bearing functions using gravity.

    FROM THE COCKPIT TO THE WRIST

    With these three watches, Bell & Ross recreates the graphic style of these navigation tools as closely as possible, once again going beyond the traditional approach to telling time. Produced as a limited edition, these three watches in their boxes will give watch collectors a sense of owning a piece of an aircraft cockpit...

    BR 01 HORIZON Limited Edition Limitée of 999 pieces


    LEGIBILITY ENHANCED BY GRAPHIC DESIGN

    Bell & Ross designers have borrowed the graphic design of the attitude indicator to create an original and innovative display of the time.

    • A dial on two levels
     
    · In the background, the dial (A) comprises, similar to the original instrument, two parts representing the sky, in gray, and the earth, in black. These two parts are separated by a white horizon line marking the 9 o’clock to 3 o’clock axis.
     · In the foreground, the raised dial (C) with index marks provides optimal legibility of the hour graduations. With its bridge at 12 o’clock
    (D), it conceals the attachment of the hands and is reminiscent of the shape of an aviation instrument.
     · Between these two levels, two hands of different shapes provide instantaneous legibility of the hours (B) and minutes (E). A window at 12 o’clock enables them to remain visible when they disappear below the bridge of the raised dial.

    • The two hands echo the style of the original gauge, both in their minimalist graphic design and their oscillating movement.

    • The hands and the index marks are covered in a white photo-luminescent coating that contrasts with the black of the dial, echoing the legibility principles of professional aviation instruments.

    • The anti-glare, matte black carbon finish of the case is inspired by the color of an instrument panel, designed to make the dials easier to read by eliminating glare.
