History

Bell & Ross, founded in 1992, by two friends, Bruno Belamich and Carlos A.Rosillo, is the successful consequence of a University project. Both wanted to produce a watch which could endure extreme situations and would be used by professionals in their missions, with a clear design to ensure high readability and functionality. Starting from a partnership with a German manufacturer - Sinn - they began to develop their own watches such as the Bell & Ross Bomb Disposal Type, made for Bomb diffuser. Not only making watches for the Special forces, they also designed the Hydro Challenger, a wristwatch which remained fully functional at 11’100 meters deep in the sea; as well as the Space 3, the first automatic chronometer watch worn by astronauts. Later, Chanel International B.V. purchased a large number of shares of the Company. Nowadays, the design is inspired by the military, the diving and the air plane world keeping the focus on a watch displaying only the essential to access all information in a glimpse. The Headquarters are located in Paris, while the production is based in La Chaux-de-fonds in Switzerland.
