Vintage-looking timekeeping devices will never go out of fashion, as they are true tidbit for timepiece connoisseurs. Thus, the iconic brand Bell & Ross has decided to please its admirers with new additions to its Vintage Collection, while legendary Omega company replenished its Constellation series.

Bell & Ross Vintage Collection 2020 Novelties

The Swiss brand Bell & Ross has introduced three new models from the V2 product line of its vintage collection – they are characterized by the same diameter (41 mm) and water resistance (100 meters) of the rounded case, inside of which practical automatic mechanisms with different functions are placed.

The simplest model based on the caliber BR-CAL.302 (base movement – Sellita SW300-1) with a 4Hz balance and a power reserve of 38 hours is the BR V2-92 Military Green wristwatch with a khaki dial surrounded by a bi-directional rotating bezel with a black anodized aluminum ring.

The stylish timepiece comes either with a steel bracelet or with the combination with a strap made of elastic synthetic NATO Stretch material of khaki color with a black stripe in the middle.

The BR V2-93 GMT Blue luxury watch is based on the caliber BR-CAL caliber.303 (base – ETA 2893-2), in addition to the three central hands of the previous model, offers a fourth one with a red triangular tip. It informs the owner about the time of the second time zone in a 24-hour format, according to which the bicolor gray-blue disk of the anodized bezel insert is marked.

The timekeeping device, which this year received a blue dial with a sun-textured finish, is accompanied by a steel bracelet or a strap made of an elastic synthetic NATO Stretch material in gray with a blue stripe in the middle.

Finally, the most complex luxury watch in terms of functionality – BR V2-94 Aéronavale Bronze – features the caliber BR-CAL.301 (based on modular chronograph ETA 2894-2) with a 42-hour power reserve, the case made of stabilized bronze (91% copper, 7% aluminum, and 2% silicon) and the status of a limited series of 999 copies.

This wristwatch shows off a fixed bezel with blue insert in anodized aluminum, matching the dial’s “ocean blue” color (sunrays pattern), which are highlighted by a slim circular groove, the small seconds dials, and a 30-minute drive chronograph.

This elegant bronze chronograph with screw-on buttons that comes with an elastic NATO Stretch blue strap will be appreciated by collectors of vintage models in the style of bi-compax chronographs of the 1960s.

The company from Bienne presented the fifth-generation male timekeeping devices of the Constellation collection, where the case diameter increased to 39 millimeters is adjacent to the new image of the product, which was affected by both external and internal transformations.

Thus, the characteristic “brackets” on the side of the case, which first appeared in 1982, received a more elegant design. The bezel with an updated design of Roman numeral markings became thinner. Finally, the winding crown also obtained a new conical shape.

The starting offer consists of 26 varieties of the luxury watch from Omega, the material for which is both 18-carat gold (yellow or Sedna rose gold) and more affordable stainless steel.

In any case, the connoisseur can choose either a matching alligator leather strap or an integral bracelet of a new design – with elegant cylindrical connecting links and a clasp equipped with a convenient adjustment of the bracelet’s tension.

For the bicolor version of the fashionable timepiece, the elements of the connecting links of the bracelet are made of the gold type corresponding to the bezel and crown.

A variety of dials, which received updated gold hands and hour markers (among which diamond can be found), are also great – from silver sunrays pattern to blue, gray, black, brown, and gold. The most interesting of them has a textured surface obtained by the method of silk screen printing.

Internal changes to the models are also significant. The three central hands and the date dial in the window, which has shifted from the 3-o’clock position to the 6 o’clock, are now driven by an automatic caliber 8800 (or 8801 in the case of all-gold versions). The latter boasts of a 3.5Hz balance and a power reserve of 55 hours, belonging to the Master Chronometer category. It guarantees high accuracy of the mechanism and its resistance to magnetic fields.
