Watch Out...

Ive always been a fan of Bell & Ross watches and this one is pretty sick if you ask me. The new Limited Edition BR 01 Airborne incorporates the traditional BR01 square design and a skull image – an icon used liberally today in contemporary art and design. The jowl-bearing skull references the US Airborne motto “Death from Above” used to remind brave military paratroopers of their power and vulnerability during combat in World War II, and has since become a symbol of bravery in the prospect of death. The timepiece is a tribute to the men who continue fight to defend their country, but with its contemporary look and hip incorporation of the ever-popular skull iconography you’ll be sure to see more than military-buffs sporting this watch. The BR01 is a Limited Edition of 500 pieces. It is 46 mm in diameter with automatic mechanical movement. The dial is all black with photoluminescent hands and skull for optimum night readability with a bracelet in rubber, leather, or heavy-duty synthetic fabric.
