THE RAKE X BELL & ROSS BELLYTANKER CHRONOGRAPH “Espresso Martini”

Limited Edition of 50 pieces

  • The warm, golden tones of the Bell & Ross x The Rake Bellytanker Chronograph ‘Espresso Martini’ are a tribute to the nuanced shades characteristic of the infamous cocktail, a legendary concoction in the world of bar arts. Drawing inspiration from Espresso Martini, Bell & Ross has crafted this exclusive limited edition Bellytanker Chronograph.
    The dial is meticulously designed to mirror the amber essence of the Espresso Martini. Inspired by the markers found in vintage exotic dial chronographs, the subdials are ingeniously transformed into miniature martini glasses. Additionally, the watch boasts two more understated yet sophisticated features: a colour-coordinated date display and a creative twist on the traditional chronograph scale, replacing the usual tachymeter with a more whimsical 'thirstmeter.'
    Housed in an elegant 41 x 13.4 mm bronze case, the timepiece flaunts a stunning sunray brushed dial, accentuated with gold-plated applied indices and hands. The renowned amber interpretation of the classic Espresso Martini, a testament to the art of mixology, inspires these elements.
    This remarkable collaboration between Bell & Ross and The Rake offers a watch that exemplifies exceptional craftsmanship and celebrates the intricate art of cocktail-making. It is a remarkable fusion of horology and mixology, making it a unique addition to any collection.

A Fusion of Precision and Style. The Rake X Bell & Ross Bellytanker Chronograph

Introducing The Bell & Ross Bellytanker Chronographs. Timepieces inspired by our favourite aperitifs are the perfect harbingers of a return to more convivial times.

A Fusion of Precision and Style. The Rake X Bell & Ross Bellytanker Chronograph

If you look at the name Bell & Ross, the central motif is the ampersand. This is derived from the ligature for the Latin word et, which expresses a partnership between equals. It means that together, we are stronger. And it was very much in this spirit that these vibrant-coloured Bellytanker Chronograph watches were create.

In terms of colour, the watches are inspired by some of the most iconic cocktails — Negroni, Spritz, Espresso Martini, Vesper Martini — and what they symbolise in term of good cheer, celebration and friendship. Also, these beautiful vivid hues with the sunray motif on the dials that are treated to have an almost liquid effect are power totems of positivity and optimism.

Designing an original sports chronograph that avoids replicating iconic models like the Rolex Daytona or Omega Speedmaster is no easy task. The Bell & Ross Bellytanker, discovered in 2017, stood out with its genuinely original design featuring oversized Arabic indexes, long baton markers, a stepped dial, thick crown guards, and screw-down pushers. The 41mm size perfectly complements the well-executed elements, creating an impressive timepiece.
