Bell & Ross are a watchmaker that we have a lot of time for at The Coolector as we’re rather big fans of aviation style timepieces and there are few better proponents of this type of watch than the good fellows at Bell & Ross. As if to prove this point, we are presented with the, quite frankly, stunning Bell & Ross BR 126 Blackbird Watch pictured above.
This fantastically stylish timepiece is a nod to the highly iconic and legendary 1960 US spy plane of the same name and, we here at The Coolector, have fallen pretty hard for its visual charms. It doesn’t rest on it laurels of looking awesome, however, this exemplary timepiece from French / Swiss watchmakers, Bell & Ross, also have plenty of impressive stuff going on under the hood.
The Bell & Ross BR 126 Blackbird Watch retains the appearance of the spy plane which had black paint that absorbed radio waves and the timepiece has an excellent nod to this with a matte-black, anti-reflective casing. The Blackbird boasts a flyback function and has luminous orange hands for increased readability. If you’ve fallen for this spiffing timepiece, you’ll need to move quickly because it is a limited edition offering restricted to just 500 pieces. A few more of this great watch’s features include a 100m water resistance, self-winding mechanical movement, heavy duty canvas straps and a 43mm dial. Check out this cracking watch below:
As we’re pre-existing fans of Bell & Ross here at The Coolector, we may be a little biased but this Blackbird timepiece is completely up our street and for any aviation aficionado, there can be no better choice of watch.
