        The Bell & Ross Company has some basic principles that have brought to it recognition and fame all over the world. Principles like: readability, performance, precision and water-resistance, should be strictly followed in order to create quality embodied in multifarious products defined by elegance.

        The new, fantastic BR 01 Airborne comes as a tribute to the heroic Allied paratroopers of World War II. Its design comes as an astonishing combination of black and white diamonds with perfect cuts, meant to embellish the watch and transform it in a special piece of art.

        The Only Watch 2009 auction dated on September 24th, manages for the third time to stimulate the imagination of famous watchmakers all over the world, in order to obtain funds for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a terrible disease consisting of a severe form of muscular dystrophy that seem to be affecting mostly male children.

        On June 9th 2009, before the Only Watch auction, the two timepieces that might as well be called jewelries, were put up for sale in the most exclusive way, in a stylish, fancy boutique located on rue Saint-Honoré in Paris.

        The Colette’s main widow located in the center of the Parisian shopping district, presents with pride the newest Bell & Ross product, the BR 01 that came as a tribute to the heroic Allied paratroopers of World War II, especially for those in the US Airborne divisions.

        The day of the release, the 9th of June, came soon after the meeting between French President Nicolas Sarkozy and U.S. President Barack Obama, meeting that was meant to commemorate the 65th Anniversary of the D-Day Invasion by Allied forces in Normandy.
