An automobile inspired timepiece from Bell & Ross, the BR V2-94 Bellytanker watch honours the high-speed cars made directly from the spare drop tanks of WWII Bellytanker planes. Designed and built to be an ultra-fast automobile to compete on the salt flat races, the fighter plane drop tanks made for cars that were exceptionally aerodynamic.
