Bell & Ross Pays Tribute To WW1 Pilot With WW1 Guynemer

In order to fully appreciate the namesake of this watch we need to know a little more about the man himself, Georges Guynemer. In less than a year after he got accepted to pilot training (he was a mechanic after originally being rejected for service), he became a flying ace (5+ kills) and was promoted to lieutenant. Throughout the next year his score rose to 25, and then he got promoted to captain and commander of the Storks squadron. He was the first Allied pilot to shoot down a German heavy bomber, and downed seven German aircraft in a single month. We’d like to think he’d like the Bell & Ross named after him. It’s inspired by the watches of the period with wire handles, a vintage dial (the red stork is in honor of his squadron), oversized crown and thin leather bracelet. The case is a distressed gunmetal finish measuring 45mm, and the caseback is engraved with a portrait of Guynemer.

The flask, by nature, is a clandestine item. It slips in and out of interior suit pockets on the sly. Why not bring an added dose of covertness to the whole ordeal with this All Black ZYX Flask. The stainless steel flask sports a mysterious motif that’s supported by the alphabet being curiously printed in reverse on the front. Each All Black ZYX Flask holds 6 ounces of the good stuff. If an MI6 agent were to take a swig on the job, we like to imagine this would be his flask of choice.
