Among the lots on offer from Property of a Gentleman in the upcoming auction Fine Timepieces Online discover a curated selection of 25 Bell & Ross watches in celebration of the company’s 25th anniversary. The guiding principle for the brand has been to create timepieces that are designed to serve specific functions. In 1997, Bell & Ross set the record for water resistance when their Hydro Challenger reached a depth of 11,000 metres. The brand has three established collections – Aviation, Marine and Vintage – each with distinct personalities and design cues. Within each of the model lines there are multiple iterations combining complications and motifs. The BR-01, introduced to the Aviation line in 2005, is the most recognizable Bell & Ross model, invoking the instruments in an aircraft with its visible screws and square shape. Click ahead for that and more highlights that will be available when bidding begins on 11 July.
