Oris New York Harbor Limited Edition

Oris has launched a limited edition watch in support of Billion Oyster Project, an ambitious non-profit aiming to restore one billion oysters to New York Harbor, once one of the world’s most polluted waterways.

Oris New York Harbor Limited Edition

Billion Oyster Project was founded by educators Murray Fisher and Pete Malinowski. Since 2014, this organization has worked with more than 11,000 volunteers, 8,000 students, 100 New York City schools and 50 restaurant partners.

Billion Oyster Project has introduced 75 million juvenile oysters to 18 restoration sites covering 14.5 acres of New York Harbor, and the oyster population is now self-sustaining. The ultimate goal of this mission is to restore one billion oysters by 2035.

Oris New York Harbor Limited Edition

To support the project’s pioneering work, Oris has released the New York Harbor Limited Edition, a 2,000-piece limited edition based on the best-selling Aquis diver’s watch.

Oris New York Harbor Limited Edition

The signature feature of this timepiece is its green mother of pearl dial, inspired by the colour of the famous harbor’s water, and by oyster shell.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Quantième Complet New Models, Ref. 5054-3640 / 5054-1210

Swiss luxury watch brand Blancpain has announced the launch of two new versions of its Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Quantième Complet (full calendar) model: a red gold version with a blue-gradient dial; and a titanium version with an anthracite dial.

The Bathyscaphe was created in 1956 with the aim of offering a diver’s watch whose size would make it suitable for everyday wear. It has evolved over the years and was reinterpreted by Blancpain in 2013 to mark the 60th anniversary of the Fifty Fathoms.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Quantième Complet red gold version with blue gradient dial

The Blancpain Bathyscaphe Quantième Complet model displays day and month via the two apertures placed below 12 o’clock, the date with a pointer hand and a moon phase positioned in a large window at 6 o’clock.

The 6654.P calibre of this Bathyscaphe features an innovative date mechanism with a security system. This enables the owner of the watch to handle each indication at any time, without any risk to the movement, unlike the usual calendar watches. This 28 jewel self-winding movement provides about 72 hours of power reserve.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Quantième Complet titanium version

Measuring 43 mm in diameter and water-resistant to 30 bar (approximately 300 m), the new Bathyscaphe Quantième Complet is available in two satin-brushed versions with well-marked contours: one in red gold and the other in grade 23 titanium.

The case thickness is 13.4mm and the lug width is 23mm. The red gold model is paired with a sunburst blue-gradient dial that catches the light with remarkable ease. The gold hour-markers, hands and moon match the case colour and the dial is framed by a unidirectional rotating bezel with a brilliant blue ceramic inlay featuring a Ceragold™ time scale.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe Quantième Complet

The colour-material match continues on the back of the timepiece which reveals a red gold oscillating weight. Meanwhile, the titanium model is distinguished by subtle shades of grey. Its sunburst anthracite dial is enhanced by gold hour-markers, rhodium-plated hands and moon.

The likewise anthracite ceramic bezel is satin-brushed for a resolutely contemporary matt effect and bears a graduated Liquidmetal™ scale. The gold rotor of the titanium model has been given an anthracite NAC coating instilling a sporty and dynamic vibe.

The 18K red gold Blancpain Bathyscaphe Quantième Complet watch is available with a blue NATO or sailcloth strap, with the latter option also offering a choice between a pin buckle and a folding clasp. The titanium model comes with a titanium bracelet or a grey NATO or sailcloth strap.

Phillips The New York Watch Auction: SIX – Results

Concluding a white glove season for Phillips Watches, The New York Watch Auction: SIX realized $30.3 million – more than tripling its pre-sale total low estimate of $9.8 million. Bringing the Spring season total for the category to $127.2 million, the results reaffirm Phillips’ place as the global market leader.

Multiple records for individual models in the fields of vintage, contemporary, and independents were achieved during the live auction at Phillips’ New York headquarters at 432 Park Avenue. Bidders from the international community, across nearly 70 countries, vied for rare and historic timepieces, participating in the room, online, and over the phone.

Leading the auction was the very first platinum George Daniels Anniversary Watch ever made, bearing the unique serial number “00.” Realizing $2,389,500, it set a record for any George Daniels wristwatch – and any British-made wristwatch – sold at auction.

Following its launch in 2010, a total of 47 watches were made to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the co-axial escapement, with just four examples produced in platinum, like the present lot. George Daniels wanted the Anniversary model to also be a celebration of his life’s work, and the platinum “00” is a wonderful representation of the best in handmade, traditional English watchmaking. A portion of the proceeds from the sale will benefit The George Daniels Educational Trust, The Alliance of British Watch and Clock Makers, and the Horological Society of New York.

A fresh-to-market Rolex Paul Newman Daytona Lemon ref. 6264 soared past its estimate to over $2 million. Named “El Limoncito” as an homage to the Mexican origins of the family who owned this watch since its production in 1969, the watch’s bracelet is also stamped “Hecho in Mexico.” With its grèné yellow dial, black subdials, and white graphics, the Lemon is perhaps the most striking and unusual configuration of Cosmograph Daytona Paul Newman and is seldom seen publicly.

Independent makers also saw fierce competition, with three examples by F.P.Journe selling for over $1 million. A unique and historically important F. P.Journe platinum Chronomètre Souverain wristwatch, which was gifted to George Daniels by none other than Mr. Journe, realized $1,482,000, nearly six times its low estimate and a world record for the model at auction.

The Tourbillon Souverain with jade dial saw spirited bidding up to $1,240,000 against an estimate of $200,000-400,000, while the Tourbillon Souverain No. 035/99T sold for $1,361,000.

Timepieces by DeBethune, Greubel Forsey, Urban Jurgensen, and Konstantin Chaykin also performed exceptionally well.

TAG Heuer Museum acquired James Garner’s unique Carrera for a record price of $176,400.

The upcoming Phillips online watch auctions are The Horological Society of New York Charity Online Auction II sale taking place from 6 to 13 July and the Hong Kong Online Watch Auction I taking place from 21 to 28 July.

MB&F Legacy Machine Flying T New Models with Gem-stone Dial Plates

Introduced in 2019, Legacy Machine Flying T is the first MB&F Machine dedicated to women.

The first MB&F Legacy Machine FlyingT watch was launched in 2019 in three editions, all in white gold and set with diamonds: black lacquer dial plate with case set with brilliant-cut diamonds; dial plate and case both fully set with brilliant-cut diamonds; and dial plate and case both fully set with baguette-cut diamonds. In 2020, Legacy Machine FlyingT Red Gold and Platinum versions with guilloche dial plates were launched.

MB&F Legacy Machine Flying T with 18K White Gold Case and lapis lazuli dial plate

This year, three new diamond-set editions with gemstone dial plates have been added to the FlyingT collection: 18K white gold case with lapis lazuli dial plate, 18K white gold with malachite dial plate and 18K yellow gold case with tiger eye dial plate.

The Legacy Machine FlyingT is a three-dimensional horological art piece for women. It features a round case with a steeply cambered bezel and slender, elongated lugs. A high, extravagantly convex dome of sapphire crystal rises from the bezel. The subtly curved dial plate of this watch is offered in various finishes: black lacquer, guilloche, gem-stone or diamond-set. The new models released in 2022 feature gemstone dials: lapis lazuli, malachite or tiger eye.

An asymmetric ventricular opening in the dial plate frames a flying tourbillon movement that beats at a serene rate of 2.5Hz (18,000vph). The tourbillon projects high above the rest of the engine, a kinetic, dynamic column that stops just short of the apex of the sapphire crystal dome. Affixed to the top of the upper tourbillon cage is a single large diamond that rotates simultaneously with the flying tourbillon.

At the 7 o’clock position is a dial of gemstone (lapis lazuli, malachite or tiger eye) that displays the hours and minutes with a pair of elegant serpentine hands. The dial is inclined at a 50° tilt so that the time can be read only by the wearer.

On the reverse, the automatic winding rotor takes the shape of a three-dimensional red gold sun with sculpted rays. The Legacy Machine FlyingT has a power reserve of four days (100 hours).

Maurice Lacroix Aikon King of the Court Special Edition

Swiss luxury watch brand Maurice Lacroix presents a special edition timepiece to mark its association with the King of the Court (KOTC).

In 2021, Maurice Lacroix became the Official Timekeeper of the King of the Court volleyball tournament. Now, the Jura-based watch brand has created a special edition of its highly popular AIKON model.

Maurice Lacroix Aikon King of the Court Special Edition

The AIKON King of the Court Special Edition is housed in titanium. The model is presented in black, white and golden yellow, inspired by the corporate colours of KOTC.

C by Romain Gauthier Titanium Edition Two

After the launch of the titanium edition one, independent luxury Swiss watch brand Romain Gauthier presents C by Romain Gauthier Titanium Edition Two.

C stands for Continuum, a new watch series that reflects Romain’s creative freedom with a modern and youthful design. It was launched in 2021 with the Titanium Edition One model.

C by Romain Gauthier Titanium Edition Two

Romain Gauthier now presents the second edition with subtle red highlights. Made of black Grade 5 titanium, the case remains contemporary and uncluttered. It also offers comfort and ergonomics. The dial, also in black Grade 5 titanium, adds to the consistency of the piece and evokes a sense of continuity, as there is no circle completes the time indication.

The hour-minute hands are actually off-centred on the horizontal axis and the hour indices taper ever so slightly and are of varying lengths, while the 5-second intervals of the small seconds at 7 o’clock are also marked by tapering bright red lines of differing lengths.

The tapering, three-dimensional hands and index are made from of 18k white gold and filled with Super-LumiNova for enhanced legibility, as are the numerals and applied hour markers, each of which has been produced from a single piece of white gold and features bevelled edges to give a punchy presence. The dial plate itself is made of black titanium that has been sand-blasted and treated with a special coating that protects it against UV rays.

C by Romain Gauthier Titanium Edition Two

The titanium bezel boasts an eye-catching, geometric profile that is unlike anything previously seen on a Romain Gauthier timepiece. The bezel is first machined into a round shape featuring a circular bevel before six straight sides are cut into it to create6 facets. While these facets, which have been polished, reflect the light and bring the bezel to life, the rest of the bezel absorbs light thanks to its satin-finishing. The same facetted design is replicated around the sapphire crystal on the back of the watch.

On this second edition, the case, as well as the lugs and buckle, made of grade 5 natural titanium, have been coated with a technical ADLC treatment allowing an aesthetical black finish. This carbon-based coating reinforces the scratch and shock resistance, hypoallergenic, it is also resistant to chemicals products and solvents.

C by Romain Gauthier Titanium Edition Two

In between the bezel and caseback, the one-piece caseband and lugs are geometrically sculpted, with satin and polished finishes as well as aesthetic grooves cleverly deployed to draw out the resulting shapes. Meanwhile, the rubber strap with titanium pin buckle follows the form of the angular lugs and rounded case band so it appears as a continuous, organic extension of the case.

And not for the first time in his work, Romain has placed the crown for winding and time-setting at 2 o’clock, freeing up space for wrist movement. A rubber ring around the crown makes it easier to manipulate, as well as adding a dash of colour to the timepiece.

Romain has endowed C by Romain Gauthier with a stop-seconds – or hacking seconds – mechanism, allowing the wearer to set the time exactly according to a reference time.

Like many stop-seconds mechanisms, a brake is placed on the balance wheel when the crown is pulled out. But instead of using a straight or L-shaped balance stop lever to halt the balance, Romain has opted for a snail cam that performs a double function: It touches and stops the balance wheel when the crown is pulled out and, when the crown is pushed back in, the snail cam makes a turn, with its increasingly wide form giving the balance an impulse to help it start beating again.

Those familiar with the brand will know Romain has used the snail cam’s unique shape in his past creations: It appears on the watchmaker’s acclaimed Logical One.

C by Romain Gauthier Titanium Edition Two

The manual-winding, in-house movement can be admired through the display back. It incorporates several finger bridges – historically typical of the Vallée de Joux, Romain’s birthplace – but reinterpreted here in a contemporary way.

These bridges are horizontally configured and feature a ‘stepped’ shape – previously seen on some of Logical One’s bridges – that not only provides volume and depth, but also gives the sense that the bridges are literally flowing over the gears and balance wheel, with no clear end to them.

Like the case components and the dial plate, the bridges are made from lightweight, black Grade 5 titanium and they boast contrasting tones and textures thanks to a variety of finishes. The outer edges of each bridge all feature a double bevel, while the flat bridge surfaces and rubies are each framed by a raised border that has been straight-grained.

Within these borders, the hand-finishing specialists at Manufacture Romain Gauthier used a special hand-engraving technique to create a highly original dimpled texture. The movement main plate beneath has been hand frosted.

The impressive decoration doesn’t lie only on the bridges and the main plate: Romain’s trademark gears and ratchet wheel featuring circular, bevelled spokes have been circular-grained, while the click, snail cam and screws with S-slot heads – another signature of Romain – have been highly polished. Finally, the lid of the mainspring barrel has been embellished with a superb snailing decoration.

C by Romain Gauthier’s regulator features the Romain Gauthier balance wheel with curved arms and calibrated eccentric weights, plus hand-assembled pallet lever that is triangular for maximum rigidity.

C by Romain Gauthier Titanium Edition Two is a 38-piece limited edition, engraved “1 of 38” on the back of each movement.

Breguet Tradition Tourbillon 7047 Platinum

On 26th June 1801, Abraham-Louis Breguet filed a patent for the creation of the first tourbillon. To mark this date, Swiss luxury watch brand Breguet unveils a special timepiece from the Tradition collection.

Breguet Tradition Tourbillon 7047 Platinum

Tourbillon is one of the most greatly appreciated horological mechanisms as it reveals the heart of the watch. The new Breguet Tradition Tourbillon 7047 watch in platinum houses the fusée-chain tourbillon transmission mechanism for optimising the regularity of the watch’s operation by guaranteeing its constant torque, whatever its winding level is.

Breguet Tradition Tourbillon 7047 Platinum

When the barrel is fully wound, it delivers its maximum force. The chain then acts on the top of the fusée and therefore on its smallest circumference. As the chain unwinds, its torque decreases yet acts in parallel on the widest part of the fusée – its base – thus ensuring the constant force of the energy is delivered.

Breguet Tradition Tourbillon 7047 Platinum

The fusée-chain tourbillon mechanism appears sprinkled with touches of blue. Various treatments have been used on all the components in order to achieve visual uniformity: the tourbillon carriage and the dial are covered with blue coatings, while the chain links are thermally blued. This new feature reflects the aesthetics of the Tradition Quantième Rétrograde 7597 launched in May and elegantly plays with blue and slate grey contrasts.

Breguet Tradition Tourbillon 7047 Platinum

The new Tourbillon 7047 boasts the “Clous de Paris” guilloché pattern on its off-centre gold dial, the traditional Roman numerals and the open-tipped hands. Like the watches that inspired it, its dial is secured by three screws.

Breguet Tradition Tourbillon 7047 Platinum

This 41 mm platinum watch houses the Calibre 569, a rhodium-plated hand-wound movement housing 542 components. It is equipped with an inverted in-line lever escapement featuring horns made of silicon, as too is the Breguet balance-spring.

Breguet Tradition Tourbillon 7047 Platinum watch Calibre 569

The balance of the Tradition Tourbillon 7047 oscillates at a frequency of 2.5 Hz. This movement provides a 50-hour power reserve.

The new Tradition Tourbillon 7047 watch is fitted with a midnight blue alligator leather strap secured by a triple-blade platinum folding clasp.

Franck Muller Watches

Co-founded by master watchmaker Franck Muller and Armenian-born business man and watch case specialist Vartan Sirmakes, Franck Muller Watchland is one of the most acclaimed independent watch companies in contemporary watchmaking.

Established in 1991, the House of Franck Muller is known for its highly exclusive technical complications, which are proprietary innovations, produced in-house within its Manufacture in Genthod, Geneva.

It was at the end of the 80s, Franck Muller and Vartan Sirmakes met. They shared a passion for watchmaking each of them with vast complementary experience in the field.

At the time, Franck Muller was making his own models under the “Franck Geneva” brand. The notable horological masterpieces created by him during the 1980s were a Tourbillon with jumping hours, a Tourbillon with Minute Repeater and an inverted Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar with Minute Repeater.

As for Vartan Sirmakes, he made cases for several fine watchmaking brands in a workshop he had set up in a district of Geneva alongside Lake Geneva. In 1991, Franck called on Vartan to design his new case bodies. This partnership has eventually paved the way for creating of one of the most reputable watchmaking companies in the world.

In 1992, the brand introduced the iconic Cintrée Curvex (tonneau curved) case design. In 1998, Franck Muller launched its own exhibition named World Presentation of Haute Horlogerie (WPHH) to showcase its products. In 2003, the iconic Crazy Hours watch was launched. In 2004, the brand introduced the world’s first tri-axial tourbillon.

In 2006, Franck Muller took over two Swiss watch component companies: Les Fils d’Arnold Linder SA (maker of top quality dials), and Pignons Juracie SA (producer of gear wheels and pinions). In the same year, the group also acquired the assets, including a retail outlet, of the Genevan luxury watch manufacturer Mahara Montres (MHR).

In 2007, Franck Muller unveiled the Aeternitas Mega, the world’s most complicated mechanical wristwatch at the time of its launch. As on May 2007, the group included seven luxury watch brands: Franck Muller Genève, Pierre Kunz, ECW, Rodolphe, Barthelay, Backes & Strauss and Martin Braun.

In 2008, the manufacture launched Pierre Michel Golay watch brand. In 2010, the company introduced Smalto Timepieces in collaboration with Italian fashion designer Francesco Smalto.

Introduced in 2011, the Franck Muller Giga Tourbillon stands out with the biggest tourbillon ever incorporated in a wristwatch. For the Only Watch Charity Auction 2011, Franck Muller donated “Totally Switzerland”, a unique timepiece based on its playful Crazy Hours complication. The Franck Muller watch Totally Switzerland was sold for €44, 000.

In 2012, Italian high fashion house Roberto Cavalli signed a contract with the group to develop, create and distribute Swiss Made “Roberto Cavalli by Franck Muller” watches. The first Roberto Cavalli by Franck Muller watch collection was launched at the Monaco WPHH 2012.

In 2013, Franck Muller introduced Calibre 1700, the movement entirely made in-house. Composed of 213 components and equipped with 2 barrels, this mechanical manual-winding calibre features a 7 day power reserve.

Today, in addition to its Genthod site, the company has production facilities in Lajoux, Les Bois, Plan-les-Ouates and Meyrin.

TASAKI TIMEPIECES

Japanese premium jeweller TASAKI has been renowned worldwide for its luxurious and fashionable jewellery creations made of diamonds, pearls and other precious metals. The house also offers luxury watches from its TASAKI TIMEPIECES collection.

TASAKI’s first luxury timepieces collection was launched in august 2015 in Tokyo. The inaugural line-up was comprised of eleven timepieces from three families: the ‘Odessa’ for both men and women and featuring an original stepped bezel; the modern, innovative ‘refined rebellion’ series, where TASAKI has applied its representative jewellery series designs to luxury timepieces; and the ‘serpentine’ series with its organic, sensual form shaped by snake-like curves that sinuously entwine the timepiece’s body.

TASAKI Odessa Tourbillon
TASAKI Odessa Tourbillon

A stand-out model in the ‘Odessa series is the ‘Odessa Tourbillon’. In August 2016, the house released 10 new TASAKI wristwatches – including six “Odessa Chronograph” models and the “Odessa Skeleton”, the first model in the collection with a skeleton design. New jewellery watches were also added to TASAKI’s “refined rebellion” series.

In 2018, TASAKI launched the “balance” luxury watch models. TASAKI “balance” is an iconic jewellery series whose fantastic popularity stems from minimalist, modern designs featuring pearls aligned upon straight bars of metal. Their inspiration is taken from balance balls.

The first batch of “balance” timepieces series featured 17 models: nine for men and eight for ladies. The sharp, clean bars appear on the timepieces’ lugs, while the finely balanced form creates harmony with the rounded casing. The timepieces, equipped with automatic movements, were developed in a partnership with Swiss manufacturer Vaucher.

In 2021, TASAKI introduced a new watch series in collaboration with Fiona Krüger, a Scottish-born designer based in Switzerland. She is the founder of Fiona Krüger Timepieces, the Swiss brand specialised in the production of skull watches. The “FIONA KRÜGER: TASAKI” collection is comprised of two models: Petit Skull and Chaos.

CITIZEN PROMASTER Mechanical Diver 200m, References NB6021-17E and NB6021-68L

CITIZEN presents a new series of PROMASTER Mechanical Diver watches inspired by a barnacle-covered 1977 Challenge Diver found on an Australian beach.

In 1983, a Challenge Diver was found on Long Reef Beach in Australia. The watch was covered in barnacles after being submerged in the Pacific Ocean, but the movement inside had remained protected from the seawater and was still serviceable. The new PROMASTER Mechanical Diver models take design cues from the original Challenge Diver design, but their external features and the movement inside have been updated for contemporary use.

CITIZEN PROMASTER Mechanical Diver 200m

The sapphire glass has a flat cut top and a domed underside, and the sides of the glass are beveled to provide a chunky, retro look. The watches have a guard-less crown design, and the 41.0 mm diameter is the same as the original model. The case is made of lightweight, scratch-resistant Super Titanium™, and is thinner than the original model to ensure a more comfortable fit on the wrist.

The Cal. 9051 movement in this model uses anti-magnetic materials for the balance spring and surrounding components to boost the magnetic resistance of the watch. It maintains its performance even when placed 1 centimeter from a device emitting a magnetic field of 16,000 A/m. In addition to being resistant to magnetic fields, the watches are also ISO compliant diver’s watches up to 200 meters. They can run for 42 hours when fully wound, with daily accuracy of -10 to +20 seconds.

Dague by T3 Special Watches

T3 Special Watches is a contemporary Swiss watchmaker based in Morcote, an attractive lakeside village in Southern Switzerland. The brand was founded by Andrea Marzari, who has been in the watch retail business since 1995, and Alessandro Poggi, a seasoned watch collector and connoisseur.

The brand’s first creation is Dague, a titanium watch featuring a coin-edge case, mechanical hand-wound movement with separate bridges, Gilt sandwich dial and the sword-shaped hands, which give this watch its name.

Titanium is lighter than steel, anti-allergic, anti-magnetic, and it has an intense-grey hue. The well-proportioned case of Dague watch measures 41.7 mm diameter and approximately 11mm thickness. The front glass is a domed sapphire with anti-reflective coating on the inside.

Dague by T3 Special Watches

For this timepiece, T3 Special Watches brand has opted for completely rebuilt and personalized mechanical movements first introduced in the early 1900`s. These calibers are 3.75mm thick, have six separate bridges, brass gaskets (chatons) on the rubies with steel screws to hold them in place, a large bi-metallic balance wheel with compensating screws, a deep-blue Breguet hairspring and an open barrel-bridge.

The original movements are 40 mm in diameter so the watchmakers downsized the plates to the smallest possible diameter, which is 37. 8mm, or 16.75 lignes. As these movements are on average a century old, the company replaced most of the rubies, of the balance axes, adjust the Breguet hairsprings, regulate the balance wheel`s adjustment screws and every part which showed signs of wear. The bridges are finished with “anglage”, the mirror-polishing of the edges, by hand, the old fashioned way. The plates have been sand-blasted to an even matte finish, and the bridges have satin finish.

Dague by T3 Special Watches

The sandwich dial with large rounded roman numerals is an innovative design, it needs a more complex workmanship than an ordinary printed dial, the dial`s upper plate has the numerals cut out and it is bolted to the lower plate via three connecting pins. Each connecting pin is hand-turned on a watchmaker`s lathe and then hand polished.

Galvanic dials tend to have more of a shine because the color coating is a very thin and translucent layer which is not spray-painted, but is applied by electrolysis that deposits colored metallic molecules firmly onto the dial surface.

As each dial is hand-printed, even within the same colour range no two dials are the same. The domed sapphire glass has an anti-reflective coating on the inside.

The Dague is available in several versions like Turquoise, Spring Water, Passion Rosier, Lumiere D’orange, Aqua Jade, Midnight Fire, Cognac Vintage, Noir Absolu, Minimal Steel, Zero Noir, Double Chocolate, Desert Rose and Midnight Sky. These watches are made in limited editions.

The Dague by T3 Special Watches is named after its hands which are easy to read, distinctive and good looking and whose design resembles a dague, ancient Rome`s iconic legionnaire short sword. The specially designed hands are mirror diamond-polished and treated with SuperLuminova for a good night visibility.

Dague by T3 Special Watches

The caseback of the watch is secured to the case via 4 screws. The sapphire glass on the case-back side allows the view of the mechanical hand-wound movement.

Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Radio Compass Limited Edition

Bell & Ross expands its iconic Flight Instruments collection by launching the BR 03-92 Radiocompass watch. This limited edition model takes its name from a Radio Navigation Tool, the Radio Compass.

Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Radio Compass Limited Edition

The Radio Compass is an on-board radio receiver which defines the position and direction of an aircraft via beacons on the ground. This indispensable navigation tool guides pilots regardless of the visibility. Inspired by this navigational tool, the BR 03-92 Radiocompass watch is distinguished by its original coloured hands that guarantee optimal readability.

Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Radio Compass Limited Edition

The unique dial of the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Radiocompass, reproduces the display of the eponymous tool. It reinterprets its hands and its graduations which allow optimal readability under all circumstances.

Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Radio Compass Limited Edition

For the display of the BR 03-92 Radiocompass, the Bell & Ross development teams have faithfully reproduced the graphics of the instrument that served as an inspiration.

Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Radio Compass Limited Edition

The matt black dial contrasts with the white graduations arranged in 3 circles. The innermost circle features the hour numerals. The minute indexes follow, and finally the seconds numerals are on the flange. A white triangle at 12 o’clock in Super-LumiNova® enables you to find your bearings at night.

Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Radio Compass Limited Edition

All the numerals are arranged in a targeted way. Usually, they are placed, but in this timepiece, they are turned towards the centre of the dial as on a navigation instrument.

The numerals adopt iso norm typography, with very legible graphics. This technical and functional typeface is used in the industry. Finally, the dial also houses a date window between 4 and 5 o’clock.

Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Radio Compass Limited Edition

The Bell and Ross BR 03-92 Radiocompass watch features very unusual hands, which take up the particular shape of the hands on the Radio Compass, the reference instrument. They also adopt 3 complementary colours. These pop, almost fluorescent shades contrast with the matt black of the dial. They allow easy and immediate reading of the time. They also give a fun appearance to this watch.

With its shape and colour, each hand is associated with a time indication.

-The largest one indicates the hours. Painted in orange, it is made up of two branches and features a stylish H.
-The very long baton hand, adorned with a stylish M, gives the minutes. Painted yellow, it protrudes on both sides.
-The thinnest hand, painted green, displays the seconds.

Certain indications on the dial are coated with Superluminova®. At night, the luminescent indexes take on blue tones, the minutes stand out in green, and the hour hand first turns yellow and then ends its luminescence in green.

The BR 03-92 Radiopcompass is produced in a limited edition of 999 pieces.
