Bell & Ross Vintage 126

Mint condition Bell & Ross Vintage 126 automatic chronograph. It comes complete with box and papers dating to 2011. The strap on the watch is a replacement leather strap but comes with the original Bell & Ross black alligator strap which appears to be unused. The dial is white, but it looks a cream colour in some of the pictures. The hands and numerals are black which is very reminiscent of some Royal Navy issued watches. What made them distinctive is that it that they were issued for use on board a nuclear submarine. For this reason the dial and handset features no luminous compound, which would have been radium based and so could have interfered with the radiation sensors on board the vessel. It is an all round well made, well designed and good quality wristwatch keeping accurate time to within 5 seconds per day.
