In a nod to the Vintage BR Aéronavale collection, this year Bell & Ross went a step further and unveiled a new BR V2-94 Aéronavale Bronze in a limited edition of 999 pieces that combines functionality and elegance while subtly reflecting the prestigious ceremonial uniform of French naval officers. This elegant chronograph is clearly aimed at lovers of beautiful timekeeping instruments. In stabilized CuAl7Si2 bronze (91% copper, 7% aluminium and 2% silicon), its 41mm case stands out with its distinctive yellow gold color. Known for its changing nature that gives it its unique character, bronze – a material cherished by Bell & Ross – provides a whole palette of unique shades. Although stabilized, the material changes over time – as if by magic!

Similar to the other chronographs from the Vintage series, the BR V2-94 Aéronavale Bronze is equipped with a fixed bezel, here in navy blue anodized aluminum. Its ocean blue dial is decorated with gilt metal indices and numerals and baton-shaped skeletonized hands in white Super-LumiNova for optimal legibility. The functional, ultra-curved “glass box” sapphire crystal reinforces both the classic style of the piece and its resistance. In this sense, the BR V2-94 Aéronavale Bronze meets all the criteria of the military technical specifications intended for such a timepiece. This refined chronograph featuring screw-down pushers will appeal to collectors looking for a model with a vintage feel which evokes the “bi-compax” chronographs from the 1960s which featured two sub-dials.

The BR V2-94 Aéronavale Bronze has all the technical qualities of a modern timepiece namely, reliability, robustness, elegance, precision and legibility.
