Bell & Ross’ new Horizon

This Thursday, will travel forward in time – to the Salon International De La Haute Horlogerie in Basel, where the watch industry’s biggest and best brands display their forthcoming wares. One which can always be relied upon to have something genuinely new on the horizon is Bell & Ross. Indeed, the aviation-inspired BR01 Horizon, available from May in a limited run of just 999, takes its design cues from the attitude indicator, a cockpit instrument which monitors the aircraft’s position relative to the horizon. “Attitude indicator” accurately describes the watch too.

£2,900. Available from May.
