The symbolism of the stars
Long before we took to the sky, stars were already being used as points of reference for voyages by land or sea. In ancient times, navigators used the position of the stars in the night sky to find their bearings out on the ocean. Bell & Ross pays tribute to these stars, without which travellers would never have reached their destinations. In their honour, the brand has created the BR S Diamond Eagle, the latest in a line of elegant, contemporary watches aimed at sophisticated women. It features the iconic round dial set in a gentle square, and brings together a whole host of details to evoke the celestial, such as the midnight blue dial, the gleaming metal indices that pierce the darkness, and the seven diamonds that evoke the scintillating stars. Together, they form a mini Milky Way encapsulated in a watch.
The emblematic eagle
The stones are set into the dial in the pattern of the Aquila constellation, named for Jupiter’s eagle. This legendary cluster of stars is easily visible from the earth. The size of the diamonds and their brilliance is a perfect rendering of this celestial group. Bell & Ross wished to lend its new watch the spectacular strength of the eagle, a legendary bird that soars to symbolic heights. These include its association with Jupiter, god of the sky. It is not surprising that this majestic bird is deemed the king of the skies, the lion of its own domain. Its imposing wingspan invokes power and control.
