Bell & Ross, long acknowledged for its mastery of the skies (as well as for big square watches) came back to earth this year with the AeroGT collection. The inspiration behind the watch is the AeroGT concept car, a sleek, beautiful (and sadly entirely hypothetical) mash-up of fighter cockpit and supercar. So even when the brand’s taking inspiration from automobiles, the world of aviation isn’t far away. Also close at hand is the familiar square case shape, and the industrially skeletonised dial we first saw on the BR-X1. The BR03-94 AeroGT is a synthesis of everything that’s great about modern Bell & Ross. Cool dial, classic case and a sophisticated design aesthetic that infuses high horse power with high tech. It all adds up to a watch that’s a blast to wear.
