AN ICONIC AVIATION REFERENCE: THE MA-1FLIGHT JACKET
The pilot’s flight jacket, for instance – an essential piece of gear that, with the emergence of the military’s Jet Age in the 1950s, experienced a step change over in America: the introduction of the MA-1. Originally a lifesaving tool, a fashion icon ever since, and in 2019 the latest inspiration to Bell & Ross’ quest for pioneering design.
BR03-92 MA-1: A PILOT WATCH
The BR 03-92 MA-1 subtly deployed details pays tribute to the US Air Force’s now-legendary MA-1 flight or ‘bomber’ jacket of 1958. Encased in dark-khaki ceramic, with a dial stenciled to reveal the orange luminescent beneath, plus reversible khaki/orange calfskin strap, this is a watch that – like the jacket – rewards the wearer with military know-how.
A PERFECT COLOR MATCH
The synergies of Bell & Ross’ 999-piece BR 03-92 MA-1 start with its jacket. The khaki calfskin leather strap of the BR 03-92 MA-1 is not only lined in orange but is also instantly reversible. Even the stitching is in dark khaki to be completely camouflage, in contrast with the orange detail that is kept hidden underneath – this ensures the function of the underside of the strap is a secret to everyone but the wearer.
