Bell & Ross officially launched their new Vintage Collection with an event at the historic Cercle National des Armées in Paris on September 15. At the opening, the three Vintage Collection lines were on display: the Original, Heritage and Officer. These new timepieces draw their inspiration from pilot’s watches of the 40s and 50s, and are all faithful to the original inspiration of the brand.
Almost 500 people attended the event. Guests included military representatives, professional pilots, politicians, media figures, and watchmaking industry leaders. Guests moved among timepiece displays, a buffet, and a horology workshop complete with a Bell & Ross watchmaker at work.
Following chairman Carlos-A. Rosillo’s speech, awards were presented to the winners of the photography contest recently held on the Bell & Ross website.
