News Bell&Ross replica announces a partnership with “France, France”
A natural partnership between the French Acrobatic Patrol and the French pilot watch brand.
It is no secret that Bell & Ross has a long history of military-inspired watches. From the very beginning of the brand, Belamich and Rosillo have made it clear that pilots and their instruments are the basis of the design behind most B&R models (such as the iconic BR 01). And elite troops. After focusing on urban inspiration for a few years, the brand dates back to 2021 when it announced a partnership with the world-famous French Patrouille de France, a demonstration unit of precision aerobatics in France. Natural connection between two French entities.
Bell & Ross (Bell&Ross) was established in 1992 and share a common vision for functional and tough watches. The idea is to create musical instruments that are influenced by the military, such as special forces, diving commandos, air forces and general field operations. From the beginning of its establishment, the brand will not only be inspired by military equipment and instruments, but its watches will be worn as originally planned for emergencies. Space 1 is a reprint of the first automatic chronograph worn in space by German astronaut Reinhart Fürrer during missions in the Space Lab. Later, the brand designed its own timepieces, such as Type Demineur, which was made at the request of the French Civil Defense Agency and designed in accordance with the operating specifications.
In 2005, the brand will launch its most iconic model BR 01 Instrument. The concept is simple, sturdy, unique and easy to identify. It is based on a round dial in a square case with 4 functional screws, reminiscent of old-fashioned airborne instruments on military aircraft.
Although Bell & Ross has also shifted to a different perspective in terms of design and inspiration, military power will still be an important part of the brand’s motto, and many of its watches will still be equipped with squadrons and elite teams. On the 20th anniversary of the establishment of RAID, Bell & Ross was selected to design a commemorative and symbolic watch for this elite institution of the French National Police Force. At the request of the National Gendarmerie Intervention Group (GIGN), Bell & Ross produced a watch that meets the specific requirements of these people.
B&R (B&R) will also develop a watch for the French fighter pilot BR 03 Type Aviation with a graduated two-way bezel and a multi-function quartz movement. At the request of the French Navy and Air Force pilots, Bell & Ross produced two limited editions of 150 pieces, specially designed for air navigation. Similarly, at the request of the students of the French War School, Bell & Ross produced a special edition of Vintage 123 Heritage. These are just examples, because the brand has completed many of these military-developed models. It is only natural for the French acrobatic patrol “Patrouille de France” to choose them… to replace Breitling, which has been officially cooperating with the patrol since 2017, but in fact it has been manufactured in cooperation with the patrol since 1993. Some watches. Those days have passed, and now it’s time for Bell & Ross to become the official watch of Patrouille in France.
The French Patrouille is one of the most famous precision aerobatic performance units in the world. This elite force was born in 1953, but has been active under different names since 1931. Under the control of the French Aerospace Force (Arméede l’Air et del’Espace), it is the oldest unit of its kind and is considered Is one of them. The best in the world. The task of the patrol is to perform aerial performances composed of sophisticated aerobatics. For example, the unit traditionally opens the Bastille Day parade in Paris.
The squadron consists of 9 pilots and 35 mechanics. Three pilots put Patrouille together every year. The new patrol officers were selected from the hunter pilots of the French Air Force. The task of the mechanic is to maintain and repair the 12 Alphajet aircraft assigned to the unit.
Although this is often said for most elite military teams, time was especially important during the Patrouille period in France. Indeed, the control chain must be perfectly synchronized between different pilots, not only to avoid blind spots in the public, but also to avoid the safety of pilots and participants. This kind of action is perfectly timed and arranged without errors. replica watches perfect
After two years of focusing on urban style and more luxurious charm watches-BR 05 series-this Parisian brand decided to return to its roots and pay tribute to its rich military history. In the renewed love for pilots’ instruments and military timepieces, the brand decided to answer the tender process for the new watchmaking partner of Patrouille, France. This cooperation is of great significance to Bell & Ross.
For the brand, “this symbol of trust is the culmination of a long and prestigious history between Bell & Ross and military aircraft. It is a recognition and an honor to be able to show Patrouille de France to our professionals,” Bell & Ross Said Bruno Belamich, creative director and co-founder.
Currently, the brand has not developed any specific models. As of now, all nine pilots will wear BR 03-94 black matte chronographs on their wrists. However, there is almost no doubt that the brand will launch in the near future a special watch made by the “Patrouille de France”, which was designed by and for the pilots of this famous patrol team. The partnership between the two parties will once again strengthen the legitimacy of the brand in aviation instruments.
