    Your bucket of Bell&Ross crazy just arrived

    Not content with making me happy with their GMT, Bell&Ross has just released this weird piece for Colette, some sort of artsy shop in Paris. This is some kind of tribute to Airborne Rangers, I suspect, with a little skull and two sword hands. Not sure how much it would cost in Earth money but I’m willing to bet a few grand. Read More

    Hublot Big Bang King Power: As my 3-year-old son would say, this is "unasseptiple"

    When Hublot first launched the Big Bang I was totally down with the watch. It had a unique style and size as well as a nice pedigree and cost about $15K, not horrible for a watch of this caliber. Now they’re just getting greedy. The King Power is just a fat watch with a weird, all-black face that almost renders it useless. This model has a ceramic bracelet, which is unusual, and is… Read More

    Bell&Ross BR03: For the French!

    Just in time for the holidays we have a new Bell&Ross watch designed for the French Air Force. As you see, they’ve stuffed the same quartz movement you’ll find in the Breitling Emergency into what I’d say is a very beefy and actually quite stunning case. I’ve been hard on B&R lately, but this is a nice move back into sanity. I’d say this one is about $6,000. Read More

    Bell & Ross BR 01 Phantom

    Bell & Ross makes big honking aviator watches that look like jet plane read-outs. Their latest, the Phantom, has a low visibility face that lights up with lume in the darkness, ensuring your dark ops position will be given away by a watch face that glows like a flashlight. No price or availability but expect it to be in the $4,000-$6,000 range. Bell & Ross BR 01 Phantom [WristWatchReview] Read More

    Bell & Ross Blue BR01

    The Basel show is going on this week — it’s a big watch show in Switzerland where the pashahs and Captains of Industry send their buyers to pick up a few $100,000 trinkets. One stand-out item is this updated Bell & Ross BR01 Instrument Series watch. It’s an automatic timepiece with a honking big case and blue luminous hands. If you have to ask how much it costs, you… Read More
