THE RAKE X BELL & ROSS BELLYTANKER CHRONOGRAPH “VESPER”

Limited edition of 50 pieces

  • The warm, golden tones of the Bell & Ross x Alessandro Palazzi x Revolution & The Rake Bellytanker Chronograph “Vesper” are inspired by the golden tones found in the subtle tones of the legendary maestro of the bar arts, Alessandro Palazzi’s famous Vesper, which takes its colour from a very special Amber Vermouth. Bell & Ross has taken this exclusive tipple as inspiration for this limited edition Bellytanker Chronograph.

    Of course, the dial is made to evoke the amber of the Vesper. For the subdials, we were inspired by the markers in certain vintage exotic dial chronographs, but we turned these markers into miniature martini glasses. Two more subtle details are the pleasingly colour-matched date display and the ingenious take on the chronograph scale, which eschews the traditional tachymeter in favour of the much more enjoyable-sounding ‘thirstmeter’.

    Encased within a sleek 41 x 13.4 mm bronze case, this timepiece features a stunning sunray brushed dial adorned with mesmerizing gold-plated applied indices and hands. These exquisite details draw inspiration from Alessandro’s renowned amber-hued interpretation of the classic “Vesper” martini, originally invented by author Ian Fleming for his iconic British secret agent, James Bond.

    With this extraordinary Bell & Ross x Alessandro Palazzi collaboration, you’ll be able to wear a timepiece that not only showcases impeccable craftsmanship but also pays homage to the artistry of mixology. It’s a true testament to the meeting of horology and cocktail culture.

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.
