The future of competition flying on your wrist.

A limited edition timepiece for a conceptual racing plane is right up Bell & Ross‘ alley.

For the 2018 Baselworld convention the French watch company debuted the BR V2-94 Racing Bird Chronograph, a bold pilot’s chronograph which evokes the sleek aesthetics of their conceptual BR-Bird racing plane complete with a unique rearward cockpit.

The vintage inspiration is absent in this piece with a clear emphasis on a modern look. A 41mm stainless steel case holds the BR-CAL.301, an automatic movement which drives the hours, minutes, seconds, date and twin 30-minute chronograph counters.


These details are finely contrasted against a white dial thanks to an orange seconds hand and chronograph sub-dials set in blue and white.

The Arabic numerals also make for a nice touch in the legibility front and the whole piece is polished off with a blue bezel.

The BR V2-94 Racing Bird Chronograph boasts a 42 hour power reserve and 10 metres of water resistance. It will come in a limited run of just 999 units and be paired with either a blue leather strap or steel bracelet.

Limited to 999 units, the BR V2-94 Racing Bird is powered the ETA 2894-2 (which B&R calls the BR-CAL.301) and is available on a blue leather strap or a steel bracelet.

No official Australian pricing has been released yet but U.S pricing currently starts from US$4,400 for the leather strap version. We’ll update this once local pricing has been announced.
