WW1 - 97 Heritage

From Bell & Ross -

Of the watches that Bell & Ross came out with in 2015, this is one of my favorites!  While a few brands have struggled with the concept of a so-called "wire lug" style to be reminiscent of a certain historical era, Bell & Ross has managed to deliver on a watch with a design that certainly hearkens back to earlier times without being ironic.
45 mm of polished stainless steel featuring a black dial with central seconds and a power reserve indicator above the 7 o'clock position.  The numbers are referred to as "untreated metal" and they do provide a striking appearance, with the hour and minute hands also being of "metal", and the second hand being "gilt".

The moment is referenced as Calibre BR-CAL.307 which is self winding (automatic).  All finished off with a black alligator strap and folding pin buckle.
