We are all strapped for time and looking for Christmas presents at the eleventh hour can do more harm than good. Fortunately, Bell & Ross has taken up residency at the Marina Bay Sands which offers the most comprehensive selection of tool watches and timepieces for adventurers and connoisseurs.

Together with Sincere Fine Watches, the boutique creates an authentic brand experience with space for Bell & Ross to grow. The choice to collaborate with Sincere is a logical one as the retailer clearly understands luxury despite its humble beginnings in 1954, it quickly understood the Haute Horlogerie universe and translated this expertise into a highly successful business.

The new boutique takes the headache away from the harried shopper as you are transported to a temple of timepieces that offers you a place to relax and take your time as you look for a gift for someone who appreciates fine craftsmanship. The boutique features luminous panels with liberal use of black marble in the doorway and tabletops. Bell & Ross’ aviation roots are evident everywhere such as lightweight furniture inspired by airplane fuselage structures and glass display cases that echo the resilience of portholes.

When Bell & Ross was founded, the partners, Carlos-A Rosillo and Bruno Belamich, the aim was to develop instruments for use in extreme situations. At the end of the 20th century, a team of watch designers and aeronautical specialists joined forces to pioneer this vision in the form of the groundbreaking BR01, a circle within a square construction inspired by the clocks in an airplane cockpit.
