Dedicated to the urban explorers, the all new Bell & Ross BR 05 Chronograph is the newest addition to Bell & Ross' iconic BR 05 collection of iconic square models inspired by flgiht instruments. This time around, the brand enriches the BR 05 collection with a chronograph version that perfectly combines style with technical complexity while making it work well in an urban setting.
Crafted in a 42mm case with the iconic combination of round and square shapes, the new BR 05 Chronograph upholds the brand's identity and history. Equipped with a chronograph movement, the new watch perfectly adapts to urban life. Offering a new level of masculinity, the BR 05 Chornograph is full of character and complexity. The case is made of satin-finished and polished steel that houses a screw-down crown with the logo of the brand engraved on it.
The watch is available in two dial options; jet black and navy blue. Offering a level of legibility that is rarely found, the two dials are home to two beautifully designed chronograph snailed counters which is a subtle nod to the designs of the 1970s. Despite taking inspiration from the early days, the counters on the dial are neo-retro hence giving the watch a modern look too. The chronograph minute counter at 9 o' clock and the small seconds counter at 3 o' clock are shaped in the signature combination of a square and a circle. The Super-LumiNova®-filled applique numerals and indices along with the metal skeletonised Super-LumiNova®-filled hour and minute hands allows the watch to show time without much hassle.
Beating at the heart of the new BR 05 Chronograph is the automatic BR-CAL.301 calibre that offers a chronograph function, hours, minutes and seconds along with a date window sitting between 4 and 5 o' clock.
As the BR 05 Chrono belongs to a family f watches with integrated bracelet, Bell & Ross have included the same feature to this one too by fusing the case and the bracelet into one cohesive unit. "The case and bracelet form one unit" explains Bruno Belamich, the brand's Creative Director.”" This type of design harks back to a category of watches which appeared in the 1970s and when infused with Bell & Ross' signature identity, the resulting graphic style is both striking and modern."
The carefully designed contours of the bracelet allows the watch to be secure and comfortable on the wrist all day long. The all new BR 05 Chrono models are available in an integrated steel bracelet and a blue or black rubber strap to cater to your outdoor activities.
