Bell & Ross’ Rafale Watch Fit for a Fighter Pilot

By Kelsey Miranda

July 7, 2015

Bell & Ross first debuted their new Rafale watch at Baselworld this year, inspired by the 1980s French Air Force and Navy program to remodel fighter planes. The design takes their cues from the sleek fighter jet plane of the same name and pays homage to the leaps and bounds it made in aviation. The “instrument watch” includes the technology and look of the clocks found in the cockpit of aeronautical planes. The watch is easy to read and reliable, in step with the Bell & Ross’ fundamental philosophy, “function must define form.”

The Rafale’s material is as tough as a diamond and lighter than steel, both hypoallergenic and unchanging in color. Precisely engineered to be worn by fighter pilots up in the air, it is just as sophisticated and suitable for the avid collector back down on the ground.
