Two new Racing Bird watches have just been released, inspired by the BR-Bird aircraft recently unveiled and showing the brand’s passion for aviation and creativity.
Bell & Ross models were original directly inspired by flight instruments of the golden age of flight. Now, the brand returns to the sky with the release of the BR-Bird plane, which follows the B-Rocket motorcycle from 2014, 2016’s AeroGT Supercar and the 2017 Bellytanker race car.

These two new timepieces share the identity of speed and performance with the BR-Bird aircraft. The dial is white like the fuselage of the plane while the numerals, bezel, chronograph and strap are blue like the empennage and decorative elements on the plane. The central second hand, details on the dial and the lining of the leather strap are all orange, the same color highlighting the most important information on the flight instruments.
The BRV1-92 features a 38.5mm stainless steel case with self-winding automatic movement. The BRV2-94 features a 41mm case size with the chronograph, also powered by a self-winding automatic movement.

After designing race cars inspired by aeronautics, and having a long standing history in aviation inspirations, it’s no surprise that Bell & Ross has finally designed a plane of their own!
The plane took flight at the Reno Air Races, an extreme speed competition in the aviation world. The competition was started in 1924 and brings together aircrafts flying at full speed at a low altitude.
With its meticulously designed shape and its powerful aesthetic, the BR-Bird belongs to the world of speed, forging a bond between aviation history and future technology.
