In celebration of their strong and long-running 15 years of partnership, leading retailer of luxury timepieces across the Asia Pacific region, Cortina Watch, and watchmaker that specializes in aeronautical instrumentation, Bell & Ross, collaborate to present a limited edition timepiece – the exquisite and exclusive BR03-92 Diver Bronze, nicknamed the “Demiurgus” – Creator of the Universe.
Cortina Watch has established a strong branding and repertoire by bringing the world’s most regarded timepieces to the region, and watchmaking brand Bell & Ross is the ultimate reference in the world of professional aviation watches. With both brands constantly striving for excellence, this spirit of innovation and quest for challenges could be seen in the impeccable BR03-92 Diver Bronze that conquers ocean depths and meets all the requisite minimums of a true diving watch.
Ultra-marine expertise: Watches perfectly tailored to the environment
Very few watch brands can boast of having ventured into the abyss of the sea. Exploring the ocean commits to navigating its depths with increasing pressure as you dive deeper. An instrument’s readability and technical parameters is crucial in the matter of survival. Even going further than the criteria of a true diving watch, are Bell & Ross’ diving watches that offer a professional solution to an environment that is as fascinating as it is dangerous. Each timepiece is designed to adapt to its specific surroundings. For divers, Bell & Ross has developed measuring tools in perfect keeping with the marine universe. They are capable of effectively assisting divers under all circumstances. Readable, functional, accurate and reliable, they meet the specific demands of professionals on the job.
The exclusive BR03-92 Diver Bronze “Demiurgus”
A true underwater watch, the BR03-92 offers both meticulous technical and refined aesthetic qualities. The limited edition timepiece, of only 100 pieces, distinguishes itself from the others through its dial. Bell & Ross introduces a genuinely yet appealing combination and make two worlds meet for the first time. The alliance of Bronze – the Marine industry’s metal of choice – and khaki – mirroring the color of the Military camouflage uniform – contrasts beautifully together, giving it a charismatic look. In total compliance with military and diving technical specifications, the monochromatic olive drab dial is perfectly readable night and day thanks to its gold-plated appliqué indices with Super-LumiNova® inserts.
Its case of 42.0 mm and bezel are made of satin-polished CuSn8 bronze – an alloy made of 92% Copper and 8% Tin; cohesively a material that is deeply linked with diving history as it was used in the past for deep-sea helmets or naval construction. Although inalterable, a patina may also form on the surface of the bronze with time and depending on its environment, gaining a unique shade over the years. Over time, the metal will cast beautiful tones of reddish brown or greyish green, giving it a rugged and distinctive touch, and making it unique. The aged leather strap confirms the watch’s authentic vintage spirit but can be replaced with a rubber strap for use while diving.
This limited edition BR03-92 Diver Bronze is available for purchase only through Cortina Watch’s online platform at cortinawatch.online. However, the web exclusive will be displayed and featured at all Cortina Watch boutiques. Customers will be welcomed to make their purchase of the timepiece online using the iPads provided at the boutiques and with staff assistance, or with their mobile devices at their convenience.
