Aquila, meaning eagle in Latin, Aquila, the great constellation in the night sky. It represents the eagle of the god Jupiter in Roman mythology and is the home of two very famous stars, Altair —the 12th brightest star in the night sky – and Tarazed. The constellation is visible in the northern hemisphere between July and October but because it is so far north in the Milky Way it is too far to be seen in the southern hemisphere. It is a brilliantly bright constellation visible to the naked eye or from a home telescope in the summer and autumn. Star gazers can keep in mind that the early travelers, navigators, explorers and pilots were all guided by the stars, stars faraway, but friendly guides nonetheless.
It is for this constellation that watchmaker Bell & Ross named its very feminine BR S Diamond Eagle watch first introduced in 2016 and which pays tribute to these celestial bodies that are the stars. Available in pink, white, brown and blue, we present to you the midnight blue version so reminiscent of the skies. The 39 mm dial, the Aquila Constellation dial, is studded with seven small diamonds that form the constellation and for the diamond version of the watch the dial is also surrounded by a circle of the sparkling stones, 66 diamonds lending the watch an aura of a jewel. The Swiss-Made watch is available with an alligator bracelet or a Milanese mesh metal bracelet and it is waterproof to up to 100 meters.
