Bell & Ross has always been fascinated by aeronautical instrumentation and by the plane as an object. Its collections are based on two focuses. Firstly, aeronautical instrumentation, specifically that of the instrumentation panel, with the AVIATION Collection. Secondly, the evocation of key eras in the history of aviation, through the development of pilots’ watches in the VINTAGE Collection.

Legibility of onboard instruments is vital in aeronautics. Two colors are prevalent in cockpits: matte black for its anti-reflective properties and white for its extreme legibility. Orange – reserved for essential information – also has an important presence and, having always featured on the Bell & Ross models, has become emblematic of the brand.
