Reading Time: 4 minutes

Bell & Ross, a leading brand in the aviation watch market with its iconic square BR 03 model designed for professionals in extreme environments, is now unveiling its BR05 collection. Faithful to the brand’s watchwords of legibility, functionality, reliability and precision, this new model boasts a resolutely urban look and feel. The lines of its case combine round and square, the basic geometric shapes that form part of Bell & Ross’ identity. The construction of the Bell & Ross BR 05 surpasses the rigour of the square and transcends the perfection of the circle to define its own individual character. Its confident style harnesses the energy of the city, its rhythm, its richness. BR05 is the time measuring instrument for the urban explorers.

An Integrated Design

The BR 05 belongs to the family of watches with an integrated case: the bracelet fuses with the case to create a unified piece. In the words of Bruno Belamich, Bell & Ross’ co-founder and creative director: «This integration of case and bracelet is not only in line with the brand’s visual identity, but it also brings another dimension to the watch: the first link forms part of the case. This type of design harks back to the Seventies, and when transposed to Bell & Ross, it creates a result with a graphic style which is both striking and modern.”

A New Edge

The rich finishes of the BR 05 draw the eye. Its 40 mm case is angular. The satin-finished surfaces are perfectly flat. The polished bevels emphasize and enhance the volumes they contain. These alternating satin-finished and polished surfaces are also found on the remarkably flexible steel bracelet. Particular attention has been paid to the arc of the curve, allowing all the components to be perfectly aligned and ensuring the bracelet can adapt seamlessly to any wrist.

It is available in silver grey, navy blue or deep black. These different colourways are complemented by another model, with a skeleton dial and mechanism.
