The latest collections, from the BR01 Chronograph Titanium Pro to the BR02 Chronograph of the Diving collection, were immaculately displayed as guests mingled in the UP VIP Suite with views of the Bell & Ross Radical race cars zipping by below. Special guest, Carra Sutherland, PR Director at Bell & Ross illustrated the powerful identity and evolution of the brand through its professional values of Sky, Land and Sea as the embodiment of watches of timeless design.
From the cockpit to the wrist, Ms. Sutherland highlighted the BR01, launched in 2005, an aeronautical instrument inspired from the dials of the aeroplane cockpit that revolutionized the Bell & Ross design and brand image.
The BR01 Tourbillions, with their complicated mechanisms developed by Bell & Ross themselves, were the show stoppers of the event, while the new BRS collection brilliantly showcased a more feminine touch with Smarter, Sleeker and Slimmer design.
Testing the hands of time, Ms. Sutherland and guests were invited down to the track to satisfy their need for speed in a ride in unbelievably fast Bell & Ross Radical race cars driven by professional drivers at speeds of over 240 km/hr—confirming Bell & Ross as number one on the finish line in the world of watches designed for professionals.
