The Bell & Ross Carbon Fiber series of watches.

What do Ninjas, hot girls on MTV Spring Break, Exotic Cars, Barbeque Grills and Carbon Fiber have in common?  They are all things that dudes love.

Bell & Ross is a company that was started in 1992 that set out to make the best watches for professions that most mere mortals dare not attempt: Astronauts, Bomb Disposal Experts, and Pilots.

Lucky for you, they sell these watches to the general public and if you purchase one of their timepieces, you can also say you are an Astronaut, Bomb Disposal Expert or a Pilot (even if you really aren’t one).  “Have you seen the Hurt Locker? That movie was loosely based on my life.”

They’ve had quite a few watches created since their inception, but the series of watches that collectors have really fallen in love with is their Instrument BR 01 collection.  It is very simple, elegant and closely resembles something that would be built as part of an instrument panel on an airplane, I mean, fighter aircraft.

Personally, I have been waiting to get on the bandwagon because there hasn’t been a piece that has really caught my eye. 

Until now.

With the release of their Carbon Fiber Series watches, I have been frothing to get my hands on one of these timepieces.  Much like exotic sports cars and ninjas, Bell & Ross has put together something that cannot be resisted by any man.

It’s kind of like chocolate syrup and Izabel Goulart.  Or machine guns and bikinis.  Like Burgers and fries.

For more information about these watches, you can visit the official Bell & Ross website.


To create Essential Style for Men, mix 2 parts petrol, 1 part secret agent, 1 part rock and roll, 1 part hip-hop and a shot of tequila in a shaker with ice and vigorously shake for 20 seconds. Pour into a martini glass rimmed with explosives and have a supermodel serve for all your friends to enjoy.
