A leading benchmark in the aviation watch landscape with its iconic square models inspired by flight instruments, Bell & Ross is extending its new BR 05 collection designed for urban explorers.
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 chronograph of style and technical complexity fit perfectly in a resolutely urban setting, the Bell & Ross BR05 Chrono.

The Chronograph function

The BR 05 chronograph’s identity is also built on a multitude of small technical and aesthetic details which truly elevate it.Bell & Ross BR05 Chrono

The integrated design

The new Bell & Ross 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.Bell & Ross BR05 Chrono

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.Bell & Ross BR05 Chrono

The angle of the attachment to the bracelet has been carefully designed to follow the contours of the wrist, ensuring a secure and comfortable fit all day long, in any situation.Bell & Ross BR05 Chrono

The pushers, crown-guard and crown form a single piece which is perfectly incorporated into the volume of the case. By blending fluidity and robustness, the continuity of the lines of this piece becomes a part of its identity.Bell & Ross BR05 Chrono

The legibility

Another signature of its personality, the dial on the Bell & Ross BR 05 chronograph ensures optimal legibility thanks to its graphics and its contrasts.Bell & Ross BR05 Chrono

Mid-way between round and square, another subtle reference to the 1970s, the shape of its two snailed counters (chronograph minute counter at 9 o’clock and small seconds at 3 o’clock), gives the new Bell & Ross BR05 a neo-retro look which in no way diminishes its modernity.Bell & Ross BR05 Chrono

Available in navy blue or jet black, the dials give each piece an urban, sporty style.Bell & Ross BR05 Chrono

Featuring an integrated steel bracelet, the Bell & Ross BR 05 chronograph is also available with a blue or black rubber strap offering a truly stylish alternative.
