Bell & Ross B-Rocket Watch Throttles In

When luxury watchmakers Bell & Ross unveiled a limited edition B-Rocket motorcycle back in January, the release of its accompanying timepiece was anything like clockwork.

In fact it's been two months since we last heard anything, but, finally, it's here - and, partially atoning for the lateness, they’ve treated us two horological companions for the retro-futuristic bike, matching the machine's spirit and aesthetics superbly.

The 46mm BR01 B-Rocket - a chronograph with tachymeter scale and three cleverly designed counters - and 42mm BR03 - large date window and power-reserve indicator - each have padded leather straps to mimic the bike’s own unique cushioning which, forged in partnership with British custom bike specialists Shaw Harley Davidson, sees riders almost lying flat.

Typical of the brand, if you need to ask how much the watches cost, let alone the bike, you're unlikely to be making an offer anytime soon.

Though such is the temptation to look at one of those handsome timepieces every second of the day, you'd be a fool to wear one on a motorcycle.
