Watchmaker Bell & Ross a new collection that pays tribute to the helicopter pilots and divers who rescue at sea. Part of Bell & Ross’ Vintage collection, the Garde-Côtes collection has two models capable of aiding those professionals during dangerous missions.
The new collection consists of a three hands model with date display and a two-counter chronograph. The three hands model is a contemporary design with a design that shows the hours, minutes, and seconds. The 12, 3, 6 and 9 numerals are optimal reading size but most importantly, the watch is water-resistant, which is perfect for maritime rescue missions. The chronograph is a sportier version surrounded by a guard, able to measure the wearer’s heart rate.
The collection features a trio of colors—grey, orange, and white—resembling the colors of sea rescuers and helicopters. Both watches feature a sapphire case which reveals the watchmaking work that went into creating them.
