Launched in 2020, the BR 05 CHRONOGRAPH belongs to the family of watches with an integrated bracelet, featuring the same design where the case and bracelet are fused into one cohesive piece. Unquestioningly faithful to the brand’s watchwords of legibility, functionality, reliability, and precision on which Bell & Ross has built its prestigious reputation, the BR 05 collection is now being enriched with a new chronograph of style and technical complexity which fits perfectly in a resolutely urban setting: the BR 05 CHRONO WHITE HAWK. Through its evocative name WHITE HAWK, this new timepiece is an apology of the aviation industry. Through its strength, its power and its prestige, this majestic creature is an emblematic symbol and perfectly embodies the idea of jewel of strength.
The Urban Explorer’s time
As an essential tool for measuring short time periods, the chronograph is the main complication of aviation.
It is also the complication par excellence of the sportsman and the man in action. This function is in this way, the most adapted to the urban explorer, who – constantly on the move – tries to master his time.
A jewel of strength
This precious measuring instrument combines Bell & Ross’ masculine aesthetic codes with the technical refinement of its high-end watchmaking. The lines of its 42-mm case combine round and square, the basic geometric shapes which form the identity of the Bell & Ross’ brand.
After releasing black and blue dial versions – signature colours of the new iconic BR 05 collection, Bell & Ross has imagined a colour, at the antithesis of the existing ones, and focused on soft tones. An alternative and a complement to the darker dials already existing within the collection.
With sophisticated watchmaking finishes, the watch is modern yet refined and elegant. To make it pure and timeless, the brand has worked the white as a material to bring depth and vibrancy.
The 42 mm geometric watch, made of surfaces and angles, ensures the bracelet can adapt seamlessly to any wrist. Equipped with a satin-polished steel bracelet for an elegant look, or a black rubber strap for a sporty-chic touch.
White dial, red hands
The silver dial with opaline white finish is a perfect match for the colour and sheen of the satin-finished and polished steel. The grainy surface dial provides metallic reflections and catches the light. The case and dial fuse together to form a single luminous unit.
A dapper legible design.
All information provided by the chronograph function is shown in red. To echo the integrated bracelet concept, the pushers, crown-guard and crown form a single piece that is perfectly incorporated into the volume of the case.
The dial on the Bell & Ross BR 05 CHRONO WHITE HAWK is easy to read and ensures optimal legibility thanks to its graphics and its contrasts. The two snailed counters – for the chronograph minute counter at 9 o’clock and the small seconds at 3 o’clock – give the watch a neo-retro look.
Legible both at night and during the day, the metal skeletonized hour and minute hands and indices are filled with Super-LumiNova®, so are the applique numerals.
A limited edition of 250 pieces
The Bell & Ross BR 05 CHRONO WHITE HAWK timepiece adorns a BR-CAL.301. mechanism, wound by a 360° clear ruthenium coated oscillating weight. The sapphire glass case-back reveals the beating heart of this movement. As a nod to the name of the watch, a hawk is metallized in silver on the open case-back.
Limited to 250 pieces, this jewel of strength will please lovers of mechanical craftsmanship, urban explorers and aviators as well as collectors.
