Bell & Ross Vintage WW2 Régulateur Heritage

This year, watch innovators, Bell & Ross pays homage to the aviators and navigators of World War II with the Vintage WW2 Régulateur Heritage.


In the Second World War Bomber pilots and navigators needed a watch that emphasized clear legibility and ease of use even while wearing gloves. Bell & Ross’s new model incorporates several of the solutions employed on timepieces of that era, including an extra-large 49-mm-diameter case; an ergonomically engineered bezel with wide-spaced notches that rotates in both directions; an oversized, grooved crown; and a classical regulator dial, with a large, central minutes hand and subdials for the hours and seconds.


The regulator dial was considered more easy to read at a glance because of the emphasis on the minutes, the most important indicator for a pilot on a mission, who needs to make quick, precise reads of short intervals of time. The legibility of the dial is further enhanced by the contrast between the black dial and the sand-colored hands, numerals and indices. $6,000
