Bell & Ross

History of Bell & Ross

Bell & Ross was founded in 1992 by two friends: Bruno Belamich (Bell) and Carlos A. Rosillo (Ross). The two Frenchmen shared a common vision to produce tool watches for professionals and teamed up with Sinn watches for their production. The first watches featured a highly recognizable design that replicated the shape of airplane cockpit instruments. In 2002, the brand was purchased by the fashion-giant Chanel and its timepieces are now produced in Switzerland’s La Chaux-de-Fonds.
