BELL & ROSS – Vintage BR GT26 November 2015
BELL & ROSS
Vintage BR GT
The latest addition to the Bell&Ross Vintage collection are the sporty and elegant BR GT 123 and 126, both inspired by the racing driver’s watches of the 1970s.
Both models feature polished stainless steel and satin-finished cases measuring 42mm diameter and the graphic design of the dials are inspired by the rev counters of the 70s cars. These models perfectly combine a modern style and a vintage charm.
The matt black color of the dial is marked by grey counters with “guilloché” decoration, highlighting the shape of the metal and photo-luminescent hands. As in the best watches, the sapphire crystal is ultra-curved and high-dome to ensure better resistance and excellent legibility.
By looking at the satin steel bezel we feel a seventies spirit. The bezel is graduated to 60 minutes in the 123 GT version, while in the 126 GT version it features a tachometric scale which gives priority to the measurement of short times allowing an easy and immediate legibility.
Both models feature an automatic mechanical movement and they are water resistant to 100 meters.
The black strap is micro-perforated made from Alcantara and it’s closed with a satin-finished “boucle deployante” folding.
Two different timepieces made for gentlemen-drivers, nostalgic of the 70s, who like to live life in the fast lane.
