French watch brand Bell & Ross unveiled at Baselworld 2016 their own stunning concept, the Bell & Ross AeroGT. Inspired by aviation and the grand touring cars of the ’50s and ’60s the AeroGT is extremely low (1.10 m) and aerodynamic, the 4.7 meter-long car seems to split the air like an arrow.
“Every year, in order to create new models, I need new sources of inspiration,” admits Bruno Belamich, our creative director. “Following the success of our B-Rocket motorbike in 2014, I wanted to go even further and design the Bell & Ross car. The aim was to produce a car that can ‘hold its own’, even amongst automotive professionals. But above all, this real challenge was a great joy,” remembers the designer. “The AeroGT concept car was the starting point for the creation of a new pair of watches inspired by the automotive world – the BR 03 AeroGT models.”
The second model, the BR 03-92 AEROGT, gets a 42mm satin-polished steel case, sapphire with anti-reflective coating and is powered by automatic mechanical calibre BR-CAL.318. l. Both watches include black calfskin stitched with red piping and ultra-resistant black synthetic fabric. No word on price. TBA.
