Shown in Pink Gold, this stunning timepiece is part of the Bell & Ross Vintage Collection. What is most interesting about this timepiece is that it shows the hour of the day in the form of a numeral which is displayed in the large aperture at the twelve o’clock position on the dial. At the turn of each hour, the number jumps to the next hour and cleary marks the time. The minutes are displayed traditionally on the dial with a blued steel minute hand. Also very prominent on the opaline pearl dial is the power reserve indicator at the six o’clock position.
The WW1 Heure Sautante by Bell & Ross features a jumping hour, mechanical automatic movement housed in a 42mm polished 18k pink gold case. This timepiece is water resistant to 100 meters and is shown here on a brown alligator strap with an 18k pink gold pin buckle.
