    GI José is back for Baselworld 2014

    Some of you probably know him, some others don’t, GI José is my little soldier offered by SimonC few years back, and he always follows me at Baselworld.

    Between secret missions in foreign territories and short terms leave, he succeed to have free time to join me in Basel this year and show you his small vision of that fair.

    Fred and Simon have already made some great universal reviews over different forums, that you can find :
    http://forum.bellross.com/showthread...aselworld-2014...
    http://forum.bellross.com/showthread...2014-my-report

    José (and me) are going to show you what happen around the fair and we will come back later on the different novelties. Mission BW2014 activated…...

    TRAVEL
    Departure from Paris Gare de Lyon. Its early in the morning, but a good breakfast in the train will be enough to wake us up...






    For a good travel, travel light. That’s José’s mantra! Only one watch will be with us… Our choice : BR01-92 R.A.I.D (José never get bored of contemplating it)






    José just arrived from a long mission, he deserves some well merited rest in the train while i play on Instagram




    3h later, we’re arrived in Basel..... Ahhh fresh swiss air, sun, trams, watchmakers commercials everywhere.



    Talking about commercials, as soon as we get out the train, we found BR. No way to escape them with around 130 posters in town.





    It’s time!!! We have to find our brothers in arm to achieve this special mission.



    An elite commando, well equiped and ready for any kind of situation.




    With a dream team like that, there’s no way to fail our mission, it only can be a succes. Composed with :
    #1 - Philippe aka.Fatboy


    #2 - Fred aka.Kronofred


    #3- JB aka.Looping


    #4- Me aka.gudzyy (just in case)

    THEATRE OF OPERATIONS

    It’s all good, we are ready. We are slowly progressing, no question to play it hard, we blend in with the crowd (lets go in the tram) and we are going to the action field. Code name : MessePlatz. Emblematic place (we can not make it wrong its written on it), covered with flowers, where there’s a mix of taxis, private drivers, trams, etc… Terrasses and restaurants, we feel so good under the sun!!!!












    You can see it the center what we will call “The nest”, a breathtaking architectural light well. Its aspect and lines are making it incredible. The nest will be our extraction point it it turns bad inside.









    Our seductive agent is charming the hostess, we get passes and here we go!!! Our infiltration mission to BR booth can begin.








    Its beautiful, its clean!!! We slowly progress inside (José will show you some other watches/brands later), we dont have to forget our mission.
    There it is……. Commando in position

    THE BOOTH

    You can see the brand’s aesthetical codes, simple and sober, with aeronautical instruments in frame, direct source of inspiration for Bruno Belamich.
    On the external side of the booth, lots of displays with the regular BR collection.











    Tourbillons and exclusive pieces have a great place at the entrance.







    Come on, stop contemplating!!! Our POC (Point of Contact) is arrived.
    Oksana? That our Instagram friends know well


    No its not her, its Emeline who works in the digital team… Yes thats her with the BRS



    One last look on the nice visuals inside de the booth, our contacts are waiting for us.





    We can say that the first part of the mission is a sucess, we are inside! Our commando is complete, no wounded soldiers left on the field.
    Let’s go for the second part of that special mission : Bring you beautiful pictures of the novelties.
    Fantastic chance, despite difficult schedules, our 2 commandants of Bell&Ross, Bruno Belamich et Carlos A.Rossillo, welcome us and present us the new range.





    Although we are already accustomed to this exercise, José and me are always amazed by their kindness, their sympathy and their disponibility. The passion, thats the only true option for them!!!
    We listen, we discuss, we exchange, we try, we take pictures (eat and drink also), some even take notes . Yes thats always great to discover the novelties in that cosy and relaxed atmosphere, even more when Bruno is here explaining his creative progression to make a model…. A real privilege!!!







    And here we are, that’s it, i know it was long to read (sorry for that), but i really wanted those who didnt have that chance, to discover the event like if they were here. Baselworld is of course around watches, a kind of special dedicated universe, but its also a human adventure for us, and thats great to live the event like that!
    Jose and me will show you the new models in a more summarized way like a Focus on each model. We want something, simple and different than just give you a press kit like you can have on other website.

    Hope you loved our little adventure.

    After a good diner in our headquarter in Mulhouse, José deserves some rest. A last newspaper reading before going to bed.

    Thank you very much for this report and photos Gudzyy.

    I am so happy to see my BR02 PVD Pro Dial in a display in one of your photos.

    Was there any mentioning or any news regarding their 02 line up?

    I would like to see a Ltd edition of a 02 one day so I hope they still continue with the marine selection.

    Also a lot of beautiful pieces in your photos, those pocket watches look fantastic.

    I am glad all you Bro’s had an informative and good time.

    No new BR02 this year, as you can already know. No intention to stop it, but no real official plan at this time. I think we dont know everything hihihih
    After my recent BR02 CF, i'll be in the waiting line for a new 02

    Quand je suis aller au salon de Bâle le 28mars, passionner d'aviation, dont les modèles cest le Dassault Falcon 50.et diverse... depuis toute petite, j'ai été éblouit, charmer par l'ésthétique et la précision de cette haute horlogerie suisse moderniser. Dont j'ai vue à l'extérieur dans les vitrines du stand des modèles impressionnant comme la collection BR01TYPE horizon red radar, altimètre, climb vitesse vertical, horizon artificiel et turn coordinateur, airspeed tout les types vintage et aviation qui renvoie au instrumentation de bord. Merci pour le livre Bell&Ross et le journale de la tribune dont je feuillette beaucoup. Le concept B-Rocket est impressionnant, moto-avion.

    Bienvenue sur le forum.


    Félicitations pour votre carnet de route et il est grand que votre visite régulièrement le forum.


    Il est excellent que vous appréciez les instruments de vol telles que l'altimètre, montée et tour coordinateur et aussi le radar rouge.


    Oui, il est grand que Bell & Ross fondent leurs conceptions sur le tableau de bord de l'aviation et c'est ce qu'ils sont célèbres pour.


    De plus, le Rocket de B peut être considéré comme une combinaison de moto et de conception de l'avion, vous avez raison.


    Avez-vous une Bell & Ross pour le moment, ce qui vous intéresse le plus pour posséder modèle?


    Tout le meilleur.
