Review: Bell & Ross – Vintage WWI Edicion Limitada

If like us, you’ve have been pining for an alternative to Bell & Ross cockpit-inspired Instrument watches that have dominated the brand’s repertoire for over a good decade, do not let the Vintage WWI Edicion Limitada pass you by.

The dial, sheathed in deep chocolate, is set off by a warm red gold case and indexes – a combination that suggests old-world regality and nostalgia all at once. The effect is thoroughly intended. The colours are meant to evoke Cuban cigars. Even the inscription on the dial is in Spanish, as a nod to Cuba. Indeed, billed as “a watch for cigar lovers”, it even comes in a humidor presentation case. Limited to 99 pieces.

Price: S$32,000 (incld GST)
