After invasions into the universe of sports vehicles (with the Aero-GT assortment ) and the Formula 1 field (with the BR-X1 RS16 or the brand new RS17 assortment ), after skull-propelled watches and even very good quality watchmaking , Bell & Ross returns to its cherished roots: military pieces. Secrecy, dull, enlivened by military-determinations, profoundly decipherable yet particularly coordinated in its current circumstance, here is the new Bell & Ross BR03-92 Black Camo.
Back to essentials. No more diversions around vehicles or complicated developments (no complaints however, there were some beautiful cool watches in those collections) yet rather a watch that will make the brand’s fans upbeat. The new Bell & Ross BR03-92 Black Camo couldn’t be more B&R. Like it or not, this is what the brand stands for and seemingly, this is the thing that B&R is most popular for: the instrument watch, the “round inside a square“, with covertness looks and dim tones. And to impeccably complete the work, a camo-design on the dial, just to be certain the military genealogy is clear. This watch probably won’t be the upheaval of the year yet it is very cool. Period!
In its set of experiences, Bell & Ross has built up a few watches for professional world class units, for example, GIGN (Special Operations Unit of the French National Gendarmerie) and RAID (Search, Assistance, Intervention, Deterrence Unit of the French National Police Force), and as indicated by their prerequisites, they required/needed these watches to be completely coordinated into their uniforms and to be against intelligent and practically imperceptible. This was the raison d’être of two past releases, the BR03-92 Phantom and the BR03-92 Comando, two watches with monochromatic shading plans and completely matte (to avoid reflections) finishings. The new BR03-92 Black Camo (short for camouflage) is above and beyond in the Bell & Ross stealth watch series.
Based on the conventional square case with a round bezel and dial (suggestive of locally available instruments found in military planes), the Bell & Ross BR03-92 Black Camo is made from matte black clay. The case picked here is the more modest form, which means 42mm x 42mm. Light, scratch-safe and generally antireflective, this case befits the camouflage idea. It is secured to the wrist by a matte black elastic lash – an ultra-tough black manufactured texture is likewise remembered for the box.
The fundamental fascination of this new BR03-92 Black Camo is obviously its dial, utilizing a unique military-type tricolor style, with an interwoven of matte grays. Of course, it includes the conventional codes of the brand, with a “sandwich” engineering – the dial is composed of two plates, one on the least level with a black radiant paint and a second one on top, with 3, 6, 9, 12 cutaway numerals. The hands are also covered with matte black iridescent paint, for a dull and secrecy look during the day, without failing to remember the requirement for evening intelligibility. A date window is attentively coordinated at 4:30. The example on the dial is very cautious when worn and the three sorts of matte dim mix together – in spite of the fact that it’s significant that the dial offers some nice texture and difference, as this camo look isn’t only the aftereffect of a solitary printing process.
Inside the case is a dependable, hearty and exact Swiss programmed development (type BR-CAL.302, in view of a Sellita SW200). It gives hours, minutes and seconds on the focal pivot, with a 4Hz recurrence and a 38h force reserve. The new BR03-92 Black Camo is presently accessible at B&R shops and retailers, just as on the authority B&R webshop , and valued at EUR 3,400. More subtleties on bellross.com .
