Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons Welcomes Bell & Ross to Its Portfolio of Luxury Timepieces
Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, the Middle East’s leading retailer of luxury watches and jewellery, welcomes renowned Franco-Swiss watchmaker, Bell & Ross to its painstakingly curated portfolio.
Available from today at Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons boutiques in Mall of the Emirates and The Dubai Mall will be privy to viewing and purchasing Bell & Ross’s most desired watches, including the brand’s latest Baselworld novelties.
Known for their precision, functionality, legibility and water-resistance, Bell & Ross has become a benchmark in the world of professional aviation watchmaking, often drawing on the history of aviation and the military specifications accompanying it.
Bell & Ross timepieces focus on four core values; great water resistance, precise movements, visual indicators and extraordinary functions. The art and craftmanship in the minute specifications, and technical precision expressed through pure lines and timeless elegance is what sets Bell & Ross timepieces apart from others.
Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons will showcase a range of Bell & Ross watches including those from the brand’s 2018 novelties, which highlight three key themes – Pilot, Racer, and Diver.
Exploring a new adventure, the Vintage V1-92 and V2-94 Racing Bird timepieces were inspired by the BR-BIRD, the conceptual avant-garde racing plane designed by Bell & Ross’ studio.
A no to its partnership with Renault Formula One® Team, Bell & Ross unveiled the BR R.S. 18 collection. These three high-performance chronographs take inspiration from one of Formula One’s key component – the chassis.
Set to make waves, the square diving watch from Bell & Ross has become a coveted collection in its own right. The BR03-92 Diver comes in two new colors – blue and bronze – evoking the colors of the sea and underwater exploration.
Offering the wearer, a tiny slice of the Milky Way to adorn the wrist, the BR S Diamond Eagle collection is inspired by the celestial sphere. Covered with a host of sparkling diamonds, the elegant timepiece family features four colors: blue, white, grey and pink, colors that evoke the heavens.
Concept & High-End Complications
The BR-X1 Skeleton Tourbillon Sapphire timepieces are a display of remarkable creativity and pioneering inclination, demonstrating that high-end luxury and digital can combine perfectly.

In addition to the brand’s Baselworld novelties, Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons will also retail Bell & Ross Vintage, Instruments and Experimental collections. With modern designs, the Vintagecollections are a tribute to the evolution of the watch in civil and military aviation, whilst the Instruments collections build on the simple idea of taking an edged clock from the cockpit of an airplane and adapting it to the scale of a wrist, such as the iconic BR 01.
