FOUR COMPLICATIONS IN THE SAME CASING

Bell and Ross Watches WW2 Military Tourbillon

The Bell and Ross Watch WW2 Military Tourbillon, a Vintage Automatic Watch with Protective Dial Cover, is a stunning addition to Bell and Ross’ vintage, military (specifically WW2) themed watch collections and is available in small numbers of limited edition pieces for shipping now (plus VAT where applicable). The limited edition Bell and Ross Watch WW2 Military Tourbillon Vintage Automatic Watch with Protective Dial Cover, which is no mere replica of anything that has gone before, is certain to make a wonderful addition to any connoisseur’s collection of Bell and Ross watches, and a great way to tell the time. Indeed, the Bell and Ross Watches WW2 Military Tourbillon, a VinWatchtomatic Watch with Protective Dial Cover, is no ordinary time piece or clock, not just a way to tell the time or an expression of masculine power. The Bell and Ross Watches limited edition WW2 Military Tourbillon is in fact a distinctly modern time piece, the titanium or rose gold case of which houses a cutting edge tourbillon calibre movement from Switzerland with a total of four complications (including the tourbillon), in a watch that pays tribute to vintage military watches from the WW2 era, with a firm military salute.

The limited edition Bell and Ross Watches WW2 Military Tourbillon recalls an earlier era, an earlier vintage, of watchmaking. Military combat, whether military air flying, military naval service , military service in the army or military reserve, demanded that if a watch was to be worn then the fragile mineral glass covering the watch dials of the watches of the time needed some sort of protective cover. In this vintage era, watch makers of the time, both before WW2 and during WW2 itself, in Switzerland and abroad, tried numerous protective cover ideas for the watch and dial. What the limited edition Bell and Ross Watches WW2 Military Tourbillon Vintage Automatic Watch watch manages to do is to combine this element of vintage military necessity typified by watch making during WW2, which offered the military wearer of the time the power to continue to tell the time at any time without fear of the crystal glass being broken, but with all the best elements of contemporary fine watch making from Switzerland. While the first versions of this limited edition watch began shipping back in 2013, the latest versions (once again in very small limited edition numbers) are available for shipping right now and of course, from Bell & Ross authorized dealer outlets in Geneva, Switzerland (where the sale may be VAT added or VAT free depending on the buyer’s VAT circumstances), and of course, Bell and Ross Watches authorized dealer shops worldwide. To ensure the fastest possible shipping, the very best VAT advice (VAT varies according to different VAT legislations) and correct watch return policy, prospective purchasers are reminded of the benefits of buying from a Bell and Ross watches authorized dealer.

It is obvious that the Bell and Ross Watches WW2 Military Tourbillon Vintage Automatic Watch with titanium Protective Dial Cover goes far beyond a simple replica of those vintage WW2 military watches and the implementation at the time of a version of a titanium protective cover for case and dial. While the Bell and Ross the Watch WW2 Military Tourbillon Vintage Automatic watch’s titanium protective cover might give a first impression of unnecessary replica vintage military styling, the reality is that for those working in hostile environments or even those in military service today, the titanium protective cover has a real practical benefit, and when combined with the advanced technical specification and design of the watch, with no less than four complications including the rose gold tourbillon and tourbillon cage, cements this watch’s place within the Bell & Ross collection of extreme environment, precision time pieces. Not just a replica. So much more than a replica! What makes it different from a mere replica? A replica would never have such features! In the Bell and Ross Watches WW2 Military Tourbillon Vintage Automatic Watch with Protective Dial Cover, the titanium protective cover functions as a window too, not only into a time gone by, but for the four major indexes of hours, minutes, power reserve and the automatic tourbillon watch precision, or ‘trust’ indicator.

In This 3D or three dimensional aspect to the watch is added to by the prominent position of the rose gold tourbillon and rose gold tourbillon cage to the dial side case front of the Bell and Ross Watches WW2 Military Tourbillon Vintage Automatic Watch with Protective Dial Cover, and of course, to the rear also, where the finest details of the Swiss made BR-CAL.281 calibre manual winding movement is perfectly visible through the anti reflective coated crystal sapphire watch case back. The polished and satin finished titanium protective cover of the limited edition Bell and Ross Watches WW2 Military Tourbillon Vintage Automatic Watch spans the entire 46mm titanium case, with two large vertical elliptical cutouts flanking four crucifix form semi circular cutouts for the regulator display of small hours (at 12 o’clock), power reserve (at 9 o’clock), accuracy or ‘trust’ indicator (at 3 o’clock), and the rose gold tourbillon and tourbillon cage itself (placed at 6 o’clock), pride of place, as you would expect from a Bell and Ross vintage military tourbillon watch, being given to the very large minute hand and its indicators, viewed through the elliptical cutouts around the edge of the matte black dial, and the rose gold tourbillon, where the Bell and Ross ‘&’ logo forms part of the flying minute tourbillon indicator.  

In addition to the matt black finish to the dial, the full range of the watch movement’s visible plates mix metal appliques, titanium finishes, and Cotes de Geneve finishing, with gilt gold hands and indexes, all of which is neatly revealed when the titanium protective case and dial cover is hinged out of the way. The watch’s power reserve indicator itself indicates a maximum power reserve of 5 days, ample power for a manual winding tourbillon watch these days.

As if the titanium protective case and dial cover of the Bell and Ross Watches WW2 Military Tourbillon Vintage Automatic Watch and vintage military styling were not enough to persuade one of the pedigree of this watch , its water resistance (to 50m), brown alligator leather strap and titanium watch strap pin buckle finish off this watch with real vintage style.
