    Bell & Ross sponsoring the renovation of the monumental clock of the Museum of Air and Space

    Bell & Ross sponsoring the renovation of the monumental clock of the
    Museum of Air and Space

    In the presence of Mr. Jean-Yves le Drian, Minister of the Defence, the new completely restored Eight Columns Room has been inaugurated on the 3rd of June 2013 in Le Bourget Musem of Air and Space. This absolute Art Deco jewel has been designed for the Universal Exhibition in 1937. The reopening to the public of this prestigious space was accompanied by two powerful symbols: the placement at the entrance of the Museum of three Fouga Magister, famous aircrafts of the “Patrouille de France” and emblem of the Museum, and the presentation of the new clock, the masterpiece of this room, fully restored thanks to the sponsoring of Bell & Ross.



    Inspired by the history of the aviation, Bell*&*Ross designs watches that pay tribute to the key episodes of the aviation history and to the technological advances from 1900 to today. Therefore, it was natural for the brand to make a contribution to this beautiful project.

    The monumental clock which was decorating the Eight Columns Room found its initial place occupied before its destruction during the Second World War thanks to Bell & Ross who took in charge the whole restoration. The clock, characteristic of the Bourget Airport because of its size and of the other twelve clocks encircling it and displaying different time zones around the world, represents a dream for generations of travelers.




    This inauguration, a partnership between Bell & Ross and the Jet Services aviation group was crowned by the passage of the “Patrouille de France” over the Museum.



    Inhabited by the spirit of aviation’s heroes, like Charles Lindbergh, Costes and Bellonte, Antoine de Saint Exupéry who walked on the tarmac of Le Bourget, many guests were able to follow on their footsteps for a moment.

    Bell & Ross is proud to participate to the restoration of the French aviation heritage and to be able to give a second life to a symbol of its history.
