 Bell & Ross BR126 Blackbird

Inspired by Lockheed’s SR-71 Blackbird, the Bell & Ross BR126 Blackbird is a wonderful extension of the Bell & Ross aviation ethos.  This watch is limited to just 500 pieces and is done in a black PVD-finished case (43mm) paired with a vivid orange canvas or textured black rubber strap (both with matching black PVD buckle).  The movement is an automatic mechanical Swiss ETA 2892 (as commonly used by B&R) with Dubois Depraz flyback chronograph module (12, 30 and 60 min sub-counters), AM/PM indication, and a tachy scale.   I saw this great watch hands-on at Baselworld and can still recall in my mind how vivid the orange canvas strap is.  It is a cool watch from any angle.  Price will be just under $7,000.  Enjoy the many pics below!
