Bell & Ross and aircraft instrumentation

Bell-&-Ross-and-aircraft-in

There are four fundamental principles that define all models of Bell & Ross: readability, functionality, accuracy and reliability. Principles undoubtedly respond to what is expected of an “instrument”. There are few signature models that are a reproduction of some of the flight instruments to be found in any airplane cockpit, all framed AVIATION BR01 collection. Compass was introduced in 2010, in 2011 the Radar, in 2012 the family expanded with three more: the Horizon, Altimeter and Turn Coordinator.

A new trio to the control panel
In 2013 three new models become part of AVIATION BR01 collection inspired by so many instruments on board:
Head Indicator: the gyro compass or heading indicator, heading indicator, is an indispensable instrument for piloting. Indicates the path that the aircraft and is used in both manual and automatic flight.

Airspeed: or anemometer is a speedometer. It measures the speed at which an aircraft moves in the air and fly it in a controlled manner when no visibility.

Climb: barometer or vertical speed indicator, climb, allows the pilot to know, at all times, if the plane is ascending, descending or flying level. This instrument is based on atmospheric pressure and is graduated in hundreds of feet per minute.

Bell & Ross and aircraft instrumentation1

BR01 HEADING INDICATOR
The dial has three discs, one for each timestamp. The exterior, which resembles a compass indications corresponds to hours. The north has been replaced by a double triangle indicates the time on the markings inside bezel.

The next disc corresponds to the minute in which the minute numerals are printed minute reading time is done based on the number to twelve hours. Finally in the central portion a disk without any graduation, but with a second rate to indicate to us.

To make full mimicry with instrument flight in the crystal is recorded in yellow silhouette of an airplane as in the original. Besides carbon black finish of the box, like a panel of flight is involved, makes reading in contrast to the yellow.

The weight of each disc is 30 vece than a needle, which has required ultra lightweight design and manufacture to reduce neither the reserve or to affect the normal operation of the watch discs. Another “handicap” to overcome, and partly contrary to the above, is that the discs must be rigid enough not to bend, suffer deformities and avoid any friction. Assembly is extremely complex and requires a great practice for setting everything perfectly.

BR01 AIRSPEED
Less sophisticated than the previous construction, the BR01 AIRSPEED is a reflection of the instrument that inspired it. In this case the designers have captured the visual characteristics of the anemometer to create a highly readable clock.

To improve both reading and symbiosis with the original reading times on the inside of the sphere, just above your needle. The minutes are read outside of the area and are overwhelmed by the corresponding needle. The second indicator is a thin needle that also runs along the outer circle of the sphere.

The colors of the instrument board indicate roughly from green to Marillo critical values are also represented on the clock and indicate areas for each quarter hour.

BR01 CLIMB
The graphics between the onboard instrument and clock serves to introduce two additional information on the usual hours, minutes and seconds. Just an indication of whether it is speed up or down, helps embed a needle to bring the package will run with the same nomenclature. Complementing the BR01 CLIMB incorporates indication of the month through an opening in the located three hours.

Another detail of the aesthetic similarity is that the hour hand is shaded in black so only the needle is white minutes. The hands and numerals are coated schedules luminescent material in contrast with the area to improve readability.

The three models are presented in a limited edition of 999 pieces.
The box has a size of 46 mm, is made of steel and have a black PVD finish. The tightness is guaranteed to 100 meters crown in all models is rosacada. The crystal is sapphire with anti-reflective treatment.

The Heading and Airspeed Indicator is equipped with an ETA 2892 caliber, while the Climb moves through an ETA 2897.

New collection of Chopard

This edition, which is the ninth, the Monaco Grand Prix Historique be held on 10 and 11 May 2014, as usual, two weeks before the Monaco Grand Prix Formula 1 – it is also the seventh consecutive in Chopard is a sponsor and official timekeeper. To date, Chopard presented a new chronograph model commemorating the race, but this year, the Geneva firm decided to develop an entirely new collection in which the chronograph will be the centerpiece. The chronograph “Grand Prix de Monaco Historique” is the first model of this new collection which debuts. A watch racing, both literally and metaphorically.

A larger box

Chopard’s bid to create a new collection is totally decided and this year’s model has no little new about the models of the previous editions. The aesthetic without losing the automobile spirit was completely remodeled. The box, made of titanium, has a larger size with 44.5 -2.1 millimeter diameter than the preceding box-models and 13.9 of thickness, and a more robust and customized design. The design of the box is the classical three-body with bezel, middle and background.

The profile of the bezel, executed in steel, similar to engine piston rings with scrapers. The two rings have a polished mirror finish, while the two slits have a black finish. A small detail that gives complexity and volume bezel. Its front is an insert of black aluminum with tachymeter scale numerals in silver and yellow indices.

The case middle has a satin finish, the handles are short and sharp lines. Both the crown and pushers of the chronograph functions have details that link the world of motor. Both pushbuttons incorporate a large drive slip at the front instead of the smooth buttons in the previous models. The crown, bolted to the middle, has generously sized grooves that give robustness. At the top you can see the engraving of a sports steering wheel with three arms and their characteristic round holes in them. The crown is flanked by two guards.

Also new this year is the closed bottom opposite the transparent background of recent editions. This is used for showing the logo of the “Grand Prix de Monaco Historique”. The fund is bolted to the middle by screws with a head resembling those used in motorsports.

The housing assembly features a waterproof cataloged 100 meters, which is 10 atmospheres.

Aesthetics in the automotive field

The white area is presented which gives a circular volume and on which the other indications guilloche settle. The indications chronograph time measurements are vertical. A twelve-hour sub dial black color with a guilloche circle shows the counter thirty minutes. Six hours find another chronograph subdial with meter twelve hours and the same aesthetic as above. A nine hours a circular sub-dial and white background with guilloche seconds showing schedules.

Numerals are printed three sub-dials and indications have a batch script with thick strokes reminiscent of drawing pianos in racetracks.

The time stamps are rectangular in shape finalized in a tip pointing to the center of the sphere. All of them incorporate luminescent material and a smooth area in which the numeral minute schedules which also corresponds to the second hand is printed. All indicators are as united by a black ring with indications of minute white.

Encircling the latter a yellow ring serves reading fractions of second’s chronograph. It is a detail that should not go unnoticed but if you look closely you will see that there are three indications among the latter. If we add to these three indications the spaces between them to four-plus second-own indication of the scale will have eight black-references that allow us easy reading of the tenth in the treadmill for needle and matching the 1/8 of a second which is able to measure movement equipping the watch.

The hour and minute hands recall the particulars of watches from a car dashboard. Are generously sized, chamfered and focus part is filled with luminescent material, which allows reading in low light environment. The hands of the subdials are simple needle-shaped. The treadmill is stylized and topped with an arrowhead. The color of the hands showing the signs are chronograph yellow thus stand out from the black counters and are consistent both directions on the tachymeter scale bezel, as the ring that surrounds the area that allows the reading of the tenths of a second chronograph.

Within three hours, as a black plate with white script, the evidence that it is the anniversary model of the “Grand Prix Historique Monca”. Also a window three hours in the field to see the disk enables the date, in black and white also with the spelling.

A movement of competition

The movement that gives life to this model is based on a mythical caliber between chronographs: the Valjoux 7750-7750 ETA’sa today. This is one of the movements with chronograph function most used today because it proved to be a reliable, sturdy caliber and they can expect good performance both chronograph and lap times. Not surprisingly this model, like its recent predecessors, has chronometer certificate issued by COSC, which attests to its high performance driving variation regardless of the position of the clock and the conditions of environmental temperature.

Chopard - Grand Monaco Historique Pirx3

The construction of this type movement is integrated, its mechanical design has been conceived from the beginning to incorporate the chronograph function. The system used for activating different functions of the push buttons through cam type is. In particular there are three overlapping cams, each in a different way, allowing spread the movement buttons to perform three basic functions Chronograph: start leaving, stop and reset the treadmill and the needle counters.

The clutch system used to connect the shooting with the chronograph hour shoot is of the oscillating pinion. This is a shaft with a sprocket at each end connecting each with a shoot. When you enable this Chronograph pinion tilt oscillation so as to connect the two shooting.

Wheel assembly / spiral 28,800 beats per hour is equivalent to an oscillation frequency of 4 Hz and the regulation system of the gear change is made via an index which acts eccentrically on the racket. The shock system that protects the wheel axle pivot is Incabloc type.

One of the most unique features of this movement lies in transmitting vibration when the rotor rotates, so dizzying, counter-charging dock motor sense is a unidirectional rotor load in one direction of rotation. It is a pleasure to see how purrs in hand.

It is equipped with a single barrel that provides a power reserve of up to 46 hours.

The second aspect of great interest to buyers is the ability of Omega watches to maintain precision time.  Starting in 1947, the company released a watch with a particular type of movement that broke the record for precision.  In 1999, it came out with the coaxial escapement, which reduced the need for lubrication, providing a longer life and more accurate time.  In 2013, the company introduced a watch with the best resistance to strong magnetic fields.
