Bell & Ross revealed three novelties at WatchesandWonders, where the watchmaker is present for the first time. The brand keeps the utilitarian-retro style, the innovative design inspired by classic military watches.

Inspired by aircraft cockpits, the BR 03-93 GMT BLUE marks a new chapter in the BR 03 Collection, which Bell & Ross created to support professionals in their daily lives. Bell & Ross continues its voyager approach with this timepiece, with a colourway that’s rare, elegant and subtle. In addition to its clear readability, with its 42 x 42mm steel case, water-resistant to 100m, this instrument watch featuring dual time zone reading houses a 25-jewel BR-CAL.303 self-winding mechanical movement, beating at a rate of 28,800 vibrations/hour. The price is $4,200.

Since the airflight is secured, we`re testing the waters with the new BR 03-92 DIVER WHITE BRONZE timepiece, for which Bell & Ross paired a pearl white dial with a bronze case (the equipment of modern divers consists of bronze elements), thus evoking the glorious hours of the first underwater explorations. Bronze watches are like fine wines, the watchmaker adds: they evolve over time and acquire a patina unique to each wearer. With a case perfectly water-resistant to 300 metres, this model is available in a limited edition of 999 pieces, at a price of $4,700.

Last, but not least, the BR 05 Green Gold is a new addition to the Gold collection, realized in 18-carat 5N gold, whose painted metal plate serving as the base of the dial has a sunburst effect, changing colour when tilted. This vibrant colour is obtained thanks to the numerous coats of tinted green varnish. The precious timepiece is sold for $ 22,600 with the alligator strap or $34,000 on gold bracelet.

We also admired the BR 01 Cyber Skull Bronze, a perfect fusion of traditional watchmaking, modern technology, and futuristic design. Limited to 500 pieces, the skull watch is available for 11,400$.
