There’s snow in New York, and a definite chill settling around much of Europe – and we’re not just talking about the Eurozone crisis. The cooler weather presents a perfect excuse to wrap up in something warmer, and few things look hotter than US air force aviation style accessories matched with a top quality aviation watch of the distinctly retro kind launched by English/Swiss manufacture Bremont, and French/Swiss manufacture Bell & Ross during 2011.

Bell & Ross WWI-92 Heritage
In the event you can’t grab a Bremont P-51, fear not, the equally alluring Bell & Ross WWI-92 Heritage collection is here. Bell & Ross have designed a WWI-inspired watch that marks a departure from their mostly square silhouettes. The watch features a bold round-face and tan leather strap that stands out, but looks aviation cool at all times. The white stitching is an added touch that reinforces the rugged appeal of this heritage piece, and the strap will form a rich patina over time to add to its authenticity. Price $3,520
