Sea Lifeguard Watch Bell & Ross Vintage Garde-côtes Watch

Bell & Ross is passionate about the military world and its symbolic significance. The watchmaking company has seen soldiers as heroes since its inception. The brand shares common values ​​with these men and women soldiers: strength, excellence. This allows the brand to leverage its expertise to create timepieces with excellent functionality.

   This year, in order to continue this strategy, Bell & Ross pays tribute to professional marine lifeguards, and more specifically to its helicopter pilots and divers. The brand has designed two watches specifically to express this. The support of the marine heroes praised their heroic and responsible spirit for their mission.
   Bell & Ross has created two watches that can help these professionals complete their offshore rescue missions. Whether military or civilian, these professional marine lifeguards often need helicopters to perform extremely dangerous and amazing tasks.

A collection created in Coast Guard colors
   As the Bell & Ross historical series, the Vintage series is the basis of this Garde-Côtes series. The two newly launched watches inherit the design of their round cases, and on this basis have been redesigned to present a more sporty and modern look. These watches come in three colors: grey, orange and white.
   The metallic grey on the dial echoes the fuselage color of the helicopter used by lifeguards at sea. This gray is also used by the army to camouflage its military ships.
   The orange on the dial and second hand is a color related to marine safety. It guarantees excellent readability of time. It is also the color of the immersion suit worn by the diver during the mission. This color is clearly visible even from a long distance and is an indispensable color for marine rescue.
   Numbers, hours, and hour and minute hands are white. The fluorescent coating guarantees excellent readability of the watch even in the dark. The mirror is engraved with the symbols of lifeguards at sea: buoys and anchors.
