Bell & Ross BR V2-94 Bellytanker Bronze Chronograph

The “Bellytanker” was one of the century’s most iconic vehicles, braving excessive speeds as a flat-lake racer built inside the body of an aircraft fuel drop tank. These platforms were undeniably classic, and as an homage to their stardom, renowned watch brand Bell & Ross decided to name their very own heritage collection after them. Now, the company has channeled the peculiar design once again for the new BR V2-94 Bellytanker Bronze Chronograph.

The 41mm watch stays true to the iconic design principles of the brand’s original Bellytanker line but deviates in regards to color and composition. A new bronze bezel and case join with Bell & Ross’ black aluminum insert and tachymeter scale, metal indexes, and Super-LumiNova hands to provide an exquisite variant that’s a well-built homage to the realm of vintage watchmaking. Furthermore, the BR V2-94’s ETA-based BR-CAL.301 automatic movement and 42-hour power reserve ensure an adequate representation of the time, regardless of the rigors through which you put it. The storied Bronze Bellytanker is currently available on the manufacturer’s site for just under $5,000. But if you want a chance at your own, you better be quick about it — only 999 units will ever be made.

Purchase: $4,990
