Vintage 126 XL Editión Limitada

A collectable chronograph for connoisseurs of cigars

The Watch Quote™ - September 1st, 2006

Bell & Ross pays tribute to limited edition cigars with the Vintage 126 XL Editión Limitada watch.
A collectable watch for aficionados, with a limited edition of 99 numbered timepieces.

Limited edition cigars are prepared from tobacco leaves that have matured for three to five years, which gives them a chocolate brown shade. Based on an original design, they are the result of a limited production run.

Watches, like cigars, have a strong traditional heritage and are the work of specialist know-how.
This limited edition timepiece reveals the technical wizardry of the manufacturing process and the exceptional character of its mechanism.
The Vintage 126 XL Editión Limitada is a chronograph with complications, large date window and an annual calendar.

The primary function of this chronograph is the mastery of time; as such it has been specially designed to embody the philosophy of those who love quality timepieces and cigars: to stop time in the moments taken to enjoy smoking a cigar.

The materials used, the XL size (42,5 mm) and the colors chosen to make the Vintage 126 XL Editión Limitada watch are a reminder of the sensory and chromatic experience of limited edition cigars.
The chronograph’s two counters evoke the two symbolic rings of limited edition cigars.

The refinement has been pushed as far as it can go with the shape of the hands and the material used for its strap: the hands are in the shape of a cigar and the scales of its alligator strap are a reminder of the veins found in the leaves of a cigar.

The watch is presented and sold in a cigar humidor with a humidifer and a hydrometer. The interior, which is made of Cedar wood, holds up to 50 cigars. The detailing, including the hinges and the push button, are in 18-ct pink gold.

A cigar transforms a few seconds of pleasure into an everlasting moment.
This Vintage 126 XL Editión Limitada watch has been designed as a token of eternity.
