The history of Bell & Ross
The two founders of Bell & Ross, Carlos Rosillo, and Bruno Belamich found the company in 1992. The brand grew rapidly from conception and design to the making of watches. In 1995, Basel World, Bell & Ross came to the forefront with its unique design, innovative concept and excellent performance that broke through the traditional watchmaking, and made Bell & Ross win a full house in major European and American markets.
In an interview, Mr. Carlos, the CEO of the brand, said that flying was his and Bruno’s childhood dream, so a lot of Bell & Ross watches with flying elements. Because of the extremely strict requirements for the performance of wristwatch in the flight missions of military operations, a watch is included in the professional concept of “instrument”. With this concept, the brand is committed to creating high-quality performance watches. For more than 20 years, it is favored by a number of military and government agencies. French air force pilots, police force, military mine-clearance team and a navy submarine team are the customers of Bell & Ross. Carlos Rosillo and Bruno Belamich also received the French order of the knight in 2012 and 2013.
Skull as the totem belief of Bell & Ross
There is also a military-related totem, the skull, in Bell & Ross’s work. The totem dates back to world war II when the 82nd and 101st airborne divisions landed in Normandy at dawn on June 6, 1944. The soldiers’ parachutes bear a skull and a badge that reads: “Death from Above”. Since then, the totem has been used in the army, the Bernice also as the pursuit of excellence tabulation determination. The skeleton, Mr. Carlos said, symbolized courage, determination, and fearlessness, giving the watch a tough and strong image. In 2009, br01 SKULL wristwatch was first introduced.
