Bell & Ross WWI-92

Bell & Ross is one of my favorite watch companies. The founders– French and Swiss designer Bruno Belamich and businessman Carlos A. Rosillo have created an incredible brand. I've talked about B&R before as these watches are to me what a Rolex is to others. Aside from the fact that they create impeccable timepieces, the design influence is based on the world of aviation, gauges and dials. This WWI (Wrist Watch 1) is based on the watches worn by military pilots of the 1920's.
