Bell & Ross has announced their new 01 Instrument Collection at Baselworld 2005. There’s very little information available other than pictures at this point, though I’ve been promised some early information, so I’ll post more once it arrives. In the meantime, the Bell & Ross website lists four models:
- BR 01-92 Automatic
- BR 01-94 Chronograph
- BR 01-96 Big Date
- BR 01-97 Power Reserve
I love the unique square case of the Bell & Ross 01 Instrument Collection, and I really like the carbon finish on the chronograph (pictured at right). As I said, I don’t have a lot of information available, but a sapphire crystal, reasonable water resistance, and luminescent hands are going to be a given. Hopefully they are available with stainless steel bracelets, as well. A black carbon bracelet on that black chronograph would make one mean looking watch.
