    The Bell & Ross Catalog is terrible!

    i want to start off by saying that i really like BR's watches. i like the vintage and the traditional squares.

    i do not own one, but am looking hard at BR-03's and the new vintage line.

    i ordered a catalogue (i know they have one on-line) because i like to have them in a nice paper book to ponder over. i have ordered catalogues of all watch manufacturers that i am interested in buying.

    i got the BR catalogue yesterday. it has 3 pictures! it is a fold out like a menu. it was more disappointing to get that than nothing at all.

    i give them a big for that.

    my rant is over.:thanks

    still like the watches though...

    There was an event in Brussels where BR presented their new line of Vintage watches, and as a "souvenir", they offered the BR new catalogue to all the guests, and I can say it is a real catalogue, with all their watches, really beautiful pics etc...

    I imagine the one you received is not really their catalogue but only to show some of the watches.

    3 watches in the whole thing! one vintage, one BR-01, one diver.

    i'll be going to an AD in december. we'll see. i think a lot of companies, not just watch manufacturers, are looking at ways to save in this economy.

    Are you sure you've got the whole catalogue - sounds like a bit of lightweight marketing to me? The online version takes forever to load but it's worth the wait - see this review

    still like the watches though...
    When I got my watch in 2009, the AD gaveme a catalog, and it must have been at least 100 pages long... color photos, thick glossy paper, etc. I guess you just got a brochure or something.
    Current:
    - Omega Aquaterra 2500B - Bell & Ross BR 03-92 - Panerai PAM 320 - Omega Speedmaster Pro (Hesalite) -
    Wish List:
    - IWC Portuguese Automatic or Manual-Wind - PAM 210 -
    Grail:
    Minute Repeater
