Launched in 2019, the new Bell & Ross, iconic BR 05 – an instrument for urban explorers – is being enhanced this year with dazzling and captivating functionalities.
For Bell & Ross, each detail has a purpose, and legibility is one if it’s guiding principles since the very beginning. With that in mind, the brand has explored the concept of luminescence and designed timepieces known for their unfaltering legibility day and night. LUM has become one of the brand’s true signatures.
Equipped with a BR-CAL.322 mechanism, wound by a 360° black PVD coated oscillating weight, the back of the model discreetly reveals the skeletonised manufacture movement. Pushing the challenge of transparency to a climax, the open-worked dial forms a clear window through which the movement – also fully covered with black PVD – can be admired. This display completes the lace effect of the cut-out bridges and confirms its uncluttered style.
This intense green light offers an excellent luminescence that contrasts with the black dial. Black has always been Bell & Ross’ trademark colour. It is the colour par excellence of the coating used on aircraft cockpit instruments and pilots’ watches to eliminate glare. Not only it is the first time the LUM concept is applied to a BR 05 but it also reinforces the new icon graphic look and utilitarian purpose. Thereby, black and green define the new standard for this latest release in the BR 05 collection.
