Aviation has always had a good relationship with horology. Some of today’s most iconic timepieces were initially created for pilots so that they’ll have a gadget that can tell the time without any complications. For premier brand Bell & Ross, this relationship goes beyond pilots and into their own products themselves, especially with their new V2-94 Racing Bird piece.

Pros

Inspired by the label’s own racing plane named the “Racing Bird,” the new V2-94 model exemplifies the sleekness and brightness of vehicle. The watch catches the eye with its exceptional colorway of white, navy-blue, and orange all complimenting each other while not creating a confusing vision. Its thin orange and white enamel hands recreate the fascinating shape of the “Racing Bird” whatever the time. And veering away from the vintage feel of the brand’s other watches, this V2-94 model boasts a face of Arabic numerals for a more modern feel.

Cons

Despite its sleek design, however, the watch’s dial may seem complicated to a lot of people. It should still be noted that, while timepieces have increasingly become more about aesthetics and design than its original function of telling the time, the latter is still very much important. With its bright-colored accents and two smaller dials, the V2-94 model may be too complex a watch for some who simply want a gadget that can tell the time.

Additionally, Bell & Ross fans who’ve fallen in love with the brand’s vintage pieces may find this model too modern. The watch doesn’t necessarily display a classic sophistication Bell & Ross pieces are known for, and what their clients may have come to know and love.
