Bell & Ross sponsoring the renovation of the clock of the Museum of Air and SpaceIn the presence of Mr. Jean-Yves le Drian, Minister of the Defence, the new completely restored Eight Columns Room has been inaugurated on the 3rd of June 2013 in Le Bourget Musem of Air and Space. This absolute Art Deco jewel has been designed for the Universal Exhibition in 1937. The reopening to the public of this prestigious space was accompanied by two powerful symbols: the placement at the entrance of the Museum of three Fouga Magister, famous aircrafts of the "Patrouille de France" and emblem of the Museum, and the presentation of the new clock, the masterpiece of this room, fully restored thanks to the sponsoring of Bell & Ross.
Inspired by the history of the aviation, Bell & Ross designs watches that pay tribute to the key episodes of the aviation history and to the technological advances from 1900 to today. Therefore, it was natural for the brand to make a contribution to this beautiful project.
The monumental clock which was decorating the Eight Columns Room found its initial place occupied before its destruction during the Second World War thanks to Bell & Ross who took in charge the whole restoration. The clock, characteristic of the Bourget Airport because of its size and of the other twelve clocks encircling it and displaying different time zones around the world, represents a dream for generations of travelers.
This inauguration, a partnership between Bell & Ross and the Jet Services aviation group was crowned by the passage of the "Patrouille de France" over the Museum.
Inhabited by the spirit of aviation's heroes, like Charles Lindbergh, Costes and Bellonte, Antoine de Saint Exupéry who walked on the tarmac of Le Bourget, many guests were able to follow on their footsteps for a moment.
Bell & Ross is proud to participate to the restoration of the French aviation heritage and to be able to give a second life to a symbol of its history.
Bell & Ross partners the centenary of the Saint-Dizier-Robinson Air Base.The Saint-Dizier air field is celebrating its centenary this year, despite being very much rooted in the 21st century since it is home to the 113 Air Base, assigned the jewel in the crown of the French Air Force - the Rafale.
Bell & Ross, whose collections are inspired by the history of aviation, was present to celebrate. To mark the event, a private day dedicated to aeronautics was organised at BA 113, presided over by General Denis Mercier, Chief of Staff of the French Air Force (CEMAA). To round off the day, guests were invited to a dinner-dance in a hall decorated for the occasion, the dance floor being flanked by the insignia of squadrons past and present. At the end of the evening, a prize draw was held for the lucky winner of a BR03 Type Aviation.
Inaugurated in St Dizier in 1913, the Robinson "landing station" played a key role in military aviation during the 1914-1918 war.
Famous names have helped shape its impressive history, the most famous of all being Major Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
Over time the airfield would become civil, military and at one point German before being assigned to NATO and finally taking its current form as an air base of leading importance.
Following the end of the Second World War, from 1965 the base became an important part of the system of nuclear deterrence, being assigned in turn the Mirage IVA, Jaguar and Rafale.
Today, more than 1950 civilian and military staff work and contribute to the strategic functions of BA 113's five Rafale squadrons.
