Bell & Ross are the industry leaders when it comes to militaristic, instrument-inspired timepieces. Their newest offering, the BR 03-92 MA-1 pilot’s watch, once again references one of the most iconic articles of aviation-oriented ware from the ‘40s and ‘50s — the men’s flight jacket.
Specifically, the BR 03-92 MA-1 harkens back to the original MA-1 flight jacket, which was introduced in 1958 as the successor to the B-15. Between the garment’s iconic green khaki colorway and eye-catching orange lining, the MA-1 served to inspire and influence countless generations of pilot’s gear following its release. Due to Bell & Ross’ self-defined heritage in flight, the company has decided to recall the jacket’s most prominent features in their BR 03-92 MA-1, which features a Swiss Sellita SW300-1 automatic movement, 100-meter water resistance, sapphire crystal, 42mm ceramic case, and a dark green, matte khaki colorway. The limited-edition watch will be limited to 999 examples.
