Vintage WW1 Régulateur pink gold
LIMITED EDITION TO 99 PIECES
Bell & Ross creates watches that are as precious as they are functional, reflecting its constant quest for excellence and the exceptional. Continuing from the Vintage WW1 Heure Sautante model introduced in 2012, Bell & Ross presents the WW1 Régulateur, a watch of extreme refinement that will delight connoisseurs of singular, neo-classical pieces.
Featuring an original display with a sober and ultra-legible design, this model epitomizes the brand’s visual identity with high-quality watchmaking.
For this new model, 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 independente display.
The Vintage WW1 Régulateur has a dominant central hand for the minutes, an hour counter at 12 o’clock and a small independente 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 (42mm), domed sapphire crystal, fasteners
resembling wire handles soldered to the case, and its narrow alligator strap, are all reminiscent of the first wrist watches.• The opaline silvered dial, the snailed counter and the extreme slenderness of the blue hands and indexes offer a unique refinement, the very embodiment of elegance.
• As a final touch, the pink gold brings nobility and sobriety to this
timepiece. The «barleycorn» guilloched caseback, worked in the style of period watches, is decorated in precious metal, reflecting the watchmakers’ exquisite craftsmanship.
