The BR 126 Sport ($4,500) is one of the most recent versions of Bell & Ross’s Vintage chronograph family. We put this timepiece — a study in how to do a retro sports chronograph right — on our wrist for a week.
The SR-71 “Blackbird” reigns supreme as the highest and fastest-flying plane ever built. And we mean reigns: 32 of these pitch black wonders have patrolled the skies above hot spots for over 40 years. To honor this achievement in aeronautics, Bell & Ross is releasing the limited edition BR 126 Blackbird ($6,700), and it’s a worthy, interesting tribute.
