Bell & Ross WW1 Edicion Limitada, Only 99 Watches WorldWide
This exquisite time piece was created by Bell & Ross with the idea of capturing the art of enjoying exceptional moments.
This watch evoke the iconic browns of Cuban cigars, in a design that skilfully combines the worlds of watchmaking and cigars. The roundness of the case and the style of the dial bring to mind the shape and colour of a cigar. The subtleness of the lugs, and the design of the Arabic numerals covered with gold dust arouse a vintage atmosphere that is reminiscent of the traditional craftsmanship of cigars.
Because time is easily forgotten when you’re enjoying yourself, Bell & Ross has chosen to equip its new Vintage WW1 Edición Limitada with a movement with a large power reserve. The manual winding mechanism is armed with a double barrel that provides power for up to five days of operation. On the dial, a hand that travels in a slow arc with the inscription “reserva de marcha 5 días”, indicates the wearer how many days are left before the watch requires winding.
With this limited edition of 99 watches dedicated to cigar lovers, Bell & Ross once again demonstrates its watchmaking skills. To enhance this meeting between the worlds of cigars and watches, Bell & Ross has chosen to present the watch in a case of Makassar ebony, which can be transformed into a humidor with a humidifier and a hygrometer. This case holds up to 50 cigars and is made out of the rare and precious kaya wood. Its colour palette compliments that of the Vintage WW1 Edición Limitada.
