Bell & Ross WW1 Jump Hour Limited Edition.jpg

Can't help but lust after the new Bell & Ross WW1 Jump Hour series, available in 18k rose gold and platinum. Each model will be limited to just 25 pieces for the platinum, and 50 for the rose gold. Both will be 42mm diameter with wire lugs replicating the style of early wristwatches converted from pocketwatches, and both will come on alligator leather straps. The rose gold model will feature a grained silver dial with blued indicators, while the platinum model has a two-tone dial with a linear power reserve indicator.

The WW1 Jump Hour takes its movement from the Vintage Jumping Hour series and features a digital hour indication at 12 o'clock. Minutes are indicated in the centre of the dial. A power reserve scale is located at 6 o'clock. Overall the design is simple and easy to read, a hallmark of the Jumping Hour. We'll have more information on this stunning watch after Baselworld.

Have to be honest, as a B&R owner, these do nothing for me - surprising as rest of line up I really like. Possibly to arty for my conservative pallet albeit the idea of the jumping hour appeals to me.

Going to have to agree. Clean looking timepiece, not really my style, but for that money...no way

Sorry Simon but just don't get these at all, but hey it would be boring if we all wore the same thing!
I do understand where you are coming from!
I too, was a little unsure, being the guy I am, the way I dress and the lifestyle I live, however when wearing a suit and being in a different frame of mind, I totally got it!
Ron, agreed, prefer the RG watch, certainly that dial, but would love it in a platinum case.!

A very different watch, to the Vintages, or even the instrument range.

Agreed very different and although not my cup of tea nice to see some more models - can only be a good thing for B & R

The gold looks quite elegant and probably will make an excellent sophisticated dress watch, but I too find the platinum has too much barren real estate that almost begs to be filled out.
