BELL & ROSS CELEBRATING AN ICONIC AVIATION REFERENCE: THE MA-1 FLIGHT JACKET
Bell & Ross looks beyond cockpit instrumentation with its latest top-flight timepiece, inspired by the US Air Force’s groundbreaking icon of pilot apparel, the MA-1 flight jacket.
Since 2005, Bell & Ross has bolstered its reputation for high-altitude performance by crafting its Instruments collection in keeping with cockpit read-outs: square, utilitarian, rugged.
There is more equipment sitting inside a cockpit than just instruments. The pilot’s flight jacket, for instance – an essential piece of gear that,
with the emergence of the military’s Jet Age in the 1950s, experienced a step change over in America: the introduction of the MA-1.
Originally a lifesaving tool, a fashion icon ever since, and in 2019 the latest inspiration to Bell & Ross’ quest for pioneering design.
Meet the BR 03-92 MA-1: a streamlined take on Bell & Ross’ purest pilot watch, with subtly deployed details paying tribute to the US Air Force’s now-legendary MA-1 flight or ‘bomber’ jacket of 1958.
Encased in dark-khaki ceramic, with a sandwich dial stenciled to reveal the orange luminescent beneath, plus reversible khaki/orange calfskin strap, this is a watch that – like the jacket – rewards the wearer with military know-how.

LAUNCH OF AN EXCLUSIVE
BR 03-92 DIVER GREEN BRONZE
The ocean is a world whose waters are shrouded in mystery. Humans have set out to explore the
depths seeking to unveil their secrets. By offering them professional diving watches with unparalleled
performance, Bell & Ross is taking part in this quest for discovery.
An inspirited military version
With this new addition to the Diver collection, Bell & Ross pursues its aspiration by evoking the historical roots of underwater exploration.
This nod to the origins of these adventures can be seen on the case-back, which bears the engraving of a 1940s diver.
Working to the motto that simplicity never need hinder luxury, Bell & Ross’ engineers have managed to capture the spirit of the military watch with the legacy from the past. In total compliance with military and diving requirements, the monochromatic olive dial is perfectly readable night and day thanks to its gold-plated appliqué indices with Superluminova® inserts.
