Bell & Ross Vintage BR 123 Heritage Review

Bell & Ross Vintage BR 123 Heritage Watch Review

  The Bell & Ross Vintage BR 123 Heritage already looks like an instant fresh classic. Bell & Ross seems to get it right more often than other brands with new releases. Their designs are distinctive, with very clean lines throughout. This homage to the pilots of the 1940‘s is no different. The dial on this BR 123 is matte black with tan colored luminescent on the hands, numerals, and indices. Wow, does that combination look amazing! The matte black dial is set into 41mm PVD finished steel case. The layout of dial is very well done, including a unique date window located partially into the seconds subdial at 6 o’clock. Not to be overlooked is the domed AR coated sapphire crystal, best appreciated in person. Rounding out the overall vintage appearance of the BR 123 is a comfortable natural leather strap. Aesthetically, one of the best aviator style watches in the market. Easy to read and unmistakable Bell & Ross. 

Pros - Design, extremely legible, very well executed 

Consideration - With PVD scratches are not easily buffed out do to the finish.
