Swiss watch brand Bell & Ross presents its new Vintage WW1 Edición Limitada, a collector’s watch for cigar lovers.
The colour scheme of the watch displays shades of brown that immediately evoke the iconic browns of Cuban cigars, in a design that skilfully combines the worlds of watchmaking and cigars. The roundness of the case and the style of the dial bring to mind the shape and colour of a cigar. The subtleness of the lugs, and the design of the Arabic numerals covered with gold dust arouse a vintage atmosphere that is reminiscent of the traditional craftsmanship of cigars.
Just as a “torcedor” knows all the secrets to cigar making, a watchmaker knows that the smooth running of a watch relies on the craft behind its precise mechanism. The Vintage WW1 Edición Limitada has an opening in the dial that allows a view of its mechanism. The movement of the balance is also visible, whilst ensuring that the indications remain readable.
With this limited edition of 99 watches dedicated to cigar lovers, Bell & Ross once again demonstrates its watchmaking skills.
To enhance this meeting between the worlds of cigars and watches, Bell & Ross has chosen to present the watch in a case of Makassar ebony, which can be transformed into a humidor with a humidifier and a hygrometer. This case holds up to 50 cigars and is made out of the rare and precious kaya wood. Its colour palette compliments that of the Vintage WW1 Edición Limitada.
