Luxury watchmaker Bell & Ross has commissioned once again Shaw Harley-Davidson to design a concept bike. Introduced at BaselWorld 2014, the fascinating B-Rocket is inspired by the speed bikes and experimental aviation of the 1960s.
“This exceptional motorcycle – a unique model epitomizing the union between performance and precision, design and power – could have been ridden by a classic superhero, a NASA test pilot or a young gun thirsty for glory.” the press release notes.
To coincide with the bike’s unveiling, Bell & Ross is launched two watches, BR 01 B-Rocket and BR 03 B-Rocket.The first one BR01-94 B-Rocket features a satin-polished steel case measuring 46mm, with a three-counter chronograph and black dial bordered by a black and white tachymeter scale for speed and distance calculations.
The second model, the BR03-97 B-Rocket, gets a 42mm satin-polished steel case and features hours, minutes and seconds indication together with a big date at 12 o’clock and power reserve indicator. Both watches include padded leather straps modelled on the seat of the B-Rocket bike. No word on price. TBA.
