Bell & Ross to partner the CHURCHILL - DE GAULLE exhibitionBell & Ross has always been passionate about military history, and in particular aviation, which has made time measurement a cornerstone of navigation. Our collections illustrate the unique parallels between the histories of aviation and watchmaking. This year, Bell & Ross will commemorate the Second World War in its own way, with a watch model that honours the memory of the air forces that served in the conflict. Each watch bears the roundel of the respective army on its dial, in tribute to the heroes of yesteryear. The roundels were found on the wings and fuselage of the military aircraft of the era.
During the official opening ceremony for the Churchill-de Gaulle exhibition at the Musée de l'Armée, Carlos A. Rosillo and Bruno Belamich were honoured to present the Vintage BR 126 Air Force Insignia to Sir Randolph Churchill, the great-grandson of Winston Churchill, and to General Baptiste, Director of the Army Museum.
2015 marks a double commemoration: the 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War and the 50th anniversary of the death of Winston Churchill.
This exhibition pays tribute to two major figures from the Second World War, but also reveals the lesser known public and private sides of these extraordinary individuals. It traces the lives, origins and careers of these two great figures - at the same time both allies and sworn enemies - up to their deaths. Using objects and writings exhibited for the first time, it captures the changing relationship between these two exceptional men whose destinies converged. These military and political figures were also writers, orators and, in Churchill's case, a journalist and painter.
It is very much in keeping with the values of Bell & Ross to support this exhibition, dedicated to two great men who had a vast impact on the 20th century: Churchill and de Gaulle.
The exhibition takes place at the Musée de l'Armée from 10th April to 26th July 2015.
This exhibition is France's largest event dedicated to Sir Winston Churchill.
