BAPE Collaborates With Bell & Ross To Celebrate Their 25th Anniversary

BAPE, the Japanese lifestyle and streetwear brand, has selected 25 partners, including Bell & Ross, to celebrate the brand’s 25th anniversary. Rising from a common passion to design functional products with a clear identity, and a strong taste for timeless inspired military style, the two brands have linked up to play around with their closely related universes.

For this special occasion, Bell & Ross chose its iconic square shape case, the BR03-92 for the collaboration. The two minimalist 42 mm watches–with their black matte ceramic cases – are just like analogue aviation counters; the shape of the hands and the typography of the numerals ensure maximum readability.


Limited to only 25 pieces, the 25th anniversary version will feature BAPE’s logo – an Ape’s head – printed on its black dial at 6 o’clock and ultra-phosphorescent green numbers. It comes in a water-resistant PELICAN® box, and is available with two straps: a black rubber version with BAPE’s iconic character - engraved and hand-filled with lacquer – and a leather one, sporting BAPE’s trademark grey camouflage.


The second limited edition model is limited to 100 pieces. This model combines Bell & Ross’ signature design lines with the original green pattern BAPE® CAMO on its dial. The military tones offer an optimum contrast with its white numbers and Ape’s logo.

The Bell & Ross x Bape capsule collection is now available at Bape and selected Bell & Ross boutiques.
