Bell & Ross BR 01 Airborne Watch
The first to reach a danger zone and the first to go down, the Airborne division of WWII developed the motto "Death from Above," which they conjoined with a skull talisman to remind them of both the impending threat and their powerful ability to defeat it.
Bell & Ross honors the spirit of these brave men with the BR 01 Airborne. At nearly two inches in diameter, the case is similar to the size worn by the pilots that invaded Normandy, the skull symbolizing their fight on the largest single-day amphibious invasion of all time.
The watch will be available at Colette from 8-13 June 2009, before hitting select international stores.
