Flight and military have always been an important source of inspiration for Bell and Ross, and the various types of instruments in the aircraft cockpit are particularly popular with designers. Bell & Ross’s inspiration from the cabin is far more than the highly sought-after Bell Ross Aviation series, which converts aeronautical instruments such as horizons, altimeters and turn indicators into wrist timepieces for flight enthusiasts. The starting point of this trend is to start with the Radar display collection that makes millions of military fans excited.
If you have seen military blockbusters, you must be familiar with the radar’s red-light scanning interface. In 2011, Bell & Ross launched the BR 01 Radar series with the inspiration of the radar of the nautical traffic control tower. We have to admit that the creativity of watchmakers is really staggering. The BR 01 Radar series not only has a breakthrough in appearance but also brings a new way of reading. Among them, Bell&Ross BR 01 Red Radar watch makes the effect of radar red light scratching the screen come alive on the dial! The Bell & Ross Radar timepieces differ greatly from the traditional timer in that it does not rely on three-pointers, but instead uses a rotating disc that is challenging to watchmaking. The design of this rotating disc not only makes the time, minute and second become a track, but the dial looks like one-piece molding, and the operation efficiency is very scientific and technological.
In order to accurately read the disc, the Bell Ross Radar watch breaks through the traditional simple bezel scale and designs a cross-shaped scale of the mirror shaped like a radar. The sub-tracks are marked with the values of hours and minutes. Although this rotating disc design of the Bell and Ross Radar timer is visually more simple, it has a very complicated internal structure. Since each reel is 30 times heavier than a normal pointer, Bell & Ross must develop very lightweight materials to reduce power consumption and maintain precise timing. At the same time of lightness, the material of the rotating disc must be durable, and it can operate as usual and reduce friction loss. Fortunately, thanks to the combination of top watchmaking engineers and cutting-edge technology, The design essence of the Bell & Ross Radar series is presented to us with ultimate perfection. In order to let some people with financial difficulties to get this incredible watch. The blogger has searched and browsed through a large number of imitation watch websites of this series. Unfortunately, the replica version of this collection is very rare, and the blue one is not found at present. But the Bell & Ross Radar replicas and Bell Ross Red Radar knock-offs are no different in appearance. Even better, the clone Bell & Ross Radar watch also has the same 46mm and 42mm size options as the original ones.
