Bell & Ross to participate in MEBA 2014Pursuing its expansion in the Middle East market and after a successful presence at last year's Dubai Air Show, Bell & Ross, the reference in aeronautical watches, is pleased to be a part of the sixth edition of the Middle East Business Aviation (MEBA) exhibition.
Attracting new participants from all over the world, MEBA is taking place at Dubai World Central (DWC) from December 8th-10th 2014 and for the first time, the luxury watch brand will join in this next major event on international business aviation's calendar.

As the only show in the region dedicated to private aviation, Bell & Ross naturally participates in this major event, according to its origins and its first inspiration: the aeronautic. It is an opportunity for guests to discover some of the most exclusive watch models of the brand such as the Vintage BR126 Sport Heritage GMT & Flyback, a tribute to the civil aviation of the 1960's or the new BR-X1 that recalls the NASA's experimental projects and the first rocket plane to break the sound barrier in 1947, the Bell X-1. An inventive, high-tech watch, with haute-horlogerie finishes and extreme lightness thanks to its rare skeleton chronograph movement and a combination of materials.
In addition to the main exhibition, the event will feature all the latest business jets on the market, as well as a conference focusing on the latest trends and issues in business aviation.

It's lively, powerful and big on sensation.
Liberty Memorial, Kansas City - 18 August 2014
Bell & Ross partner of National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial"To be an international partner and resource for commemoration of the history, policy and humanity of World War I."
Centennial Mission Statement, National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial
Bell & Ross is pleased to announce that it has partnered with TIVOL in creating a special watch display at the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial, in Kansas City, MO. Debuting on August 18th, the exhibit will showcase the brand's Vintage military inspired timepieces and is being held in commemoration of the Great War's 100th year anniversary.
Soon after the war ended in 1919, the citizens of Kansas raised over $2.5 million in funds (the equivalent of $34 million today) in just ten days, reflecting the strong public sentiment toward the conflict that changed the course of history. Two years later in 1921, over 100,000 people gathered to witness the supreme Allied commanders make a formal dedication to the site of the Liberty Memorial. This was the first time in history the five leaders were gathered together in one place. In 2004, the Museum was designated by Congress as the nation's official World War I Museum, beginning construction on a new 80,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility that also houses the Edward Jones Research Center underneath the Liberty Memorial. Since its opening in 2006, the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial has had over a million visitors including President Barack Obama, former Vice President Dick Cheney, Senator John McCain and the country's last surviving WWI veteran Frank Buckles.
Today, the Museum is dedicated to honoring those who served in the Great War by keeping its history alive. Exhibitions and educational programs geared toward a diverse audience enrich the museum's mission in keeping the public involved through thought and dialogue. In addition to maintaining the Liberty Memorial as a symbol of freedom and courage, the Museum is also dedicated to the collection and preservation of historical materials from World War I, holding the most diverse collection of objects and documents in the world. It is the second-oldest public institution dedicated to the history and personal experiences of the war. Between now and 2018, the museum will be offering a host of programs and special exhibitions marking the 100th anniversary of the first global conflict in human history and its effects on the world today.
Bell & Ross is proud to collaborate with TIVOL in exhibiting its Vintage watch collection on occasion of the Great War's centennial anniversary. The museum's historical narrative will be the perfect backdrop for displaying the brand's collection of military-inspired timepieces. Beginning with the PW1, a nod to the pocket watch worn by French soldiers during the Great War, the brand developed its WW1 collection that traces back to the wristwatches tested by pilots in the late teens and early twenties. These watches carry Swiss movements fitted in large fob-watch type cases. The horns replicate the original wire
handles that were originally soldered to the case, evoking the design of the first wristwatches. Bell & Ross has remained historically true in every attention to detail, including fitting the watches with grooved crowns similar to those pilots of the era could easily turn while wearing gloves, and adding domed crystals for an overall vintage effect. The watches come with a variety of complications from which to choose: Grande Date, Reserve de Marche to the ultimate efficient function for any aviator of the day, the Monopoussoir Chronograph. This exhibition of historically inspired watches from the Great War will be enhanced with other Bell & Ross aviation watches, including the iconic Bell & Ross BR 01 models.
For more than a century TIVOL has been Kansas City's premier jeweler, providing its customers with luxury timepieces and jewelry and exceptional service. Founded in 1910 in downtown Kansas City by immigrant Charles Tivol, the retailer today boasts two locations, in Country Club Plaza in Kansas City and Hawthorne Plaza in Overland Park, KS. The four-generation family-run business has become an institution and is today home to Bell & Ross watches in the area.
A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of Bell & Ross timepieces will be donated to the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial.
Bell & Ross creates a limited edition of 100 pieces exclusively reserved for ALPA-S.First started in the early 1960s, the Air Line Pilots Association - Singapore (ALPA-S) is the professional body representing the pilot profession in Singapore. It is a member of the International Federation of Air Line Pilots Association.
Its primary mission is to enhance aviation safety and to promote the highest standard of professionalism and technical competence among its members. This is to ensure that the general public, who entrust their lives with us, are assured of the highest level of air safety when they travel in airliners operated by their members. It also strives to develop, support and enhance the integrity, status and interests of the airline pilot profession in Singapore.
Having decided to create a watch bearing their insignia and embodying their values of cohesion and professionalism, the ALPA-S naturally approached Bell & Ross to produce a special edition.

Las Vegas - 01 June 2014
B-Rocket全球巡回：拉斯维加斯Couture Show首站Bell & Ross rockets to Couture Las Vegas, debuting the new B-Rocket at an exclusive soirée held at the Wynn Las Vegas. The invitation-only event included top-notch watch aficionados, retailers and members of the press. Guests were treated to music, cocktails, cigars and American fare, and delighted in the surprise appearance of an actual Rocket Man.
The brand has teamed for a second time with British company Shaw Harley Davidson to design a sleek concept bike evoking the modernity of the 1960s. That decade saw many firsts in innovation, performance and precision, with speed bikes breaking records in Nevada and Utah's deserted lakebeds. These tests spearheaded aeronautic technology that would eventually land us on the moon. Inspired by the first jet airplanes of the era, the B-Rocket's retro style captures the essential principles of aerodynamics with its rocket nose and sleek design. These concepts have been translated to Bell & Ross's newest models, the BR 01 and BR 03 B-Rocket.
The BR 01 B-Rocket harnesses that need for speed with its chronograph and tachymeter scale, measuring performance time in 60-second, 30-minute and 12-hour indicators. The graphic display evokes those used in experimental vehicle testing indicators, with the power reserve indicator reminiscent of fuel gauge in racing vehicles. For smaller wrists, the BR 03 B-Rocket may have simpler functions with hours, minutes, seconds, date and power reserve indicator, but it maintains the same design values with its satin-brushed steel case, guilloché finish and padded leather strap edged with red.
These two new timepieces, together with the B-Rocket motorcycle were all the rage in the Couture show, as Nevada was home to some of the most daring speed tests ever conducted. It was only fitting that their U.S. debut took place under the desert sky in Vegas.
