Bell & Ross WW1 Régulateur, a watch of extreme refinement that will delight connoisseurs of singular, neo-classical pieces. This watch just limites to 99 pieces.
Bell & Ross has chosen a display favoring precise and immediate reading of the minutes via the Swiss-made “regulator” movement. This movement, which separates the indexes by ordering them into a hierarchy, has long been the most precise instrument in the history of watchmaking. It creates an original display in which each of the indexes – hours, minutes and seconds – have their independent display. The Vintage WW1 Régulateur has a dominant central hand for the minutes, an hour counter at 12 o’clock and a small independent seconds hand at 6 o’clock, allowing rapid and precise reading of short time periods. The Vintage WW1 Régulateur reflects a classical aesthetic. The combination of pure lines, high quality materials and slender strap make this watch the height of elegance.Its generous diameter , domed sapphire crystal, fasteners resembling wire handles soldered to the case, and its narrow alligator strap, are all reminiscent of the first wrist watches.As a final touch, the pink gold brings nobility and sobriety to this timepiece.
The Vintage WW1 Régulateur embodies Bell & Ross’s expertise in watchmaking.It brilliantly combines the complexity of the mechanical movement with the simplicity of the principle of separated indexes. The refined design of its high-quality polished pink gold case gives it a timeless elegance.
It will appeal to collectors and connoisseurs of traditional watchmaking with modern tastes. Bell & Ross succeeds in its original mission of harnessing technology to promote legibility.
