It is fair to say that we are great admirers of the Bell & Ross brand. So we were extremely excited that they recently announced two new additions to the ‘iconic’ BR-05 collection.
Fifteen years ago, Bell & Ross reinvented the aesthetic codes of contemporary watchmaking with the launch of BR 01, a distinctive and singular watch directly inspired by on-board flight instruments.
A square case, a round dial, and one screw in each of the four corners… more than an original concept, the utilitarian design of this watch revolutionised traditional watchmaking codes.
Over the years, this enduring timepiece has continued to evolve without losing its origins and strong identity. Being the ultimate reference in aeronautical watchmaking ever since, last year, Bell & Ross launched an instrument for ‘urban explorers’, the brilliant BR-05.
The first addition to the collection, is the BR-05 Skeleton Blue. Reflecting the finest Haute Horlogerie craftsmanship, this new skeleton version highlights the architectural modern design of Bell & Ross’ latest urban collection.
Lovers of mechanical craftsmanship and avant-garde style, will be seduced by this limited edition of 500 pieces. This model can be worn on a remarkably flexible steel bracelet or a ribbed blue rubber strap.
With its smart and classic look, this second addition to the BR-05 urban collection takes you back into the 80’s spirit by mixing two‑tone. When a technical material meets a precious substance. The combination of satin-finished and polished steel and 18 ct rose gold. The fusion of robustness and sophistication.
