Vintage sport watches are all the rage this year, especially pilot watches. As such, it is no surprise that Bell & Ross – a master at vintage pilot watch designs – recently released an all-new collection that highlights the past in updated style. This Bell & Ross Vintage WW1 (Wrist Watch 1) series pays tribute to the first wristwatches worn by pilots in the early 1920s, thanks to its large 45mm case diameter, its wire-type lugs and its bold yet clean dial appeal. There are several models in the new WW1 collection, including a WW1 Grand Date, WW1 Reserve de Marche, WW1 Military, WW1 Heritage, and a WW1 Pocket Watch. Each is fitted with a mechanical automatic movement, features an anti-reflective domed sapphire crystal, and is water resistant to 50 meters. The WW1-97 Reserve de Marche offers hours, minutes and seconds with power reserve indicator. The galvanic black dial is accented with Arabic numerals at 3:00, 9:00 and 12:00, and stick indices. All, as well as the hands, are covered in a photo-luminescent coating for easy night readability. This watch retails for an amazing $4,500. There is also a WW1-92 Heritage watch with a striking blasted steel case with gray finish, a matt black dial with sand-colored numbers and a tan leather strap designed to take on an aged patina with time. The dial of this watch (and the dial of the WW1 Military version) features an inner hour counter and an oversized outer minute counter for easy reading of the minutes. It retails for $3,700. The collection should be in stores soon and is well worth a trip to see and touch, as the watches are stunning in their authenticity and design heritage.
