Bell & Ross recently presented its new WW1 collection at the historic Hôtel National des Invalides whose famed Eglise du Dome houses Emperor Napoleon I’s tomb. This new collection, which includes a pocket watch (the PW1) as well as the WW1 wristwatch, traces the evolution of timepieces from the pocket to the wrist.
Guests had the opportunity to visit the famous Musée de l’Armée and then gathered in a sumptuous ballroom to enjoy exquisite French cuisine and vintage Champagne. After admiring the watches, the guests could stroll along the walkways overlooking the square courtyard of the Invalides to soak up the historic atmosphere. The nearly 300 guests included media personalities, French military officers, political figures and watch aficionados.
