The Bell & Ross Vintage BR GT

With the addition of two new models to its Vintage BR line, Bell & Ross has branched out from its core category of aviation watches with a contemporary interpretation of chronographs worn by racing drivers of the 1970s, a seminal decade for motorsports. The two new Vintage BR GT models, one of which features a chronograph and tachymeter, are housed in 42mm cases and have a distinctive retro look that makes them stand out from the crowd.

The graphic design of the watches’ dials evokes the rev counters and dashboard instruments of 1970s cars, and their ultra-curved high-dome sapphire crystal (featuring two layers of anti-reflective coating for enhanced legibility) reflect the popular style for watch designs of that decade. Both pieces are paired with black, micro-perforated straps made from Alcantara, a special suede-like material that was popular for car upholstery in the ’70s.
