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.

Every tactical gear manufacturer offers something in the way of a tactical pen, but they’re not all as robust as the TriTac from StatGear. It’s engineered from aircraft grade aluminum with an ergonomic grip and bolt action pen lever, and the included Fisher Space Pen ink can write in all types of conditions, from a light drizzle to a stint in space. Obviously, no tactical pen is complete without a carbide window punch, but the TriTac goes above and beyond, adding a 440C stainless steel, razor sharp blade.
