Bell & Ross BR V2-94 Aéronavale Bronze
Bell & Ross BR V2-94 Aéronavale Bronze (£4,300)

For a brand that was only founded in the 90s Bell & Ross have really capitalised on the ‘new vintage’ trend. With their house style very much founded in aeronautical instruments and military design they have managed to capture the essence of this era of design like few brands have. 

These three new releases from Bell & Ross bring this traditional military style into the modern day with splashes of colour thrown into the mil-spec timepieces. Featuring a new version of their GMT, their standard three hander and a special limited edition version of their chronograph cast in bronze. With all of these coming from their BR V2 family which means more conventional round cases, NATO straps and super legible design.
