Perfectly suited for underwater exploration, Bell & Ross diving watches are capable of effectively assisting divers under all circumstances. Legible, functional, accurate, robust and reliable, they meet the specific demands of professionals on the job. Bell & Ross’ marine expertise is the result of the collective experience and the knowledge of its designers, master watchmakers and professional users.
Bell & Ross has a strong history of manufacturing watches for the marine realm. The HYDROMAX®, designed in 1997, holds one of the most impressive records for water-resistance to 11,100 meters. In 2002 the two-counter DIVER 300 Chronograph was developed, followed by the BR02 range that was launched in 2007. In 2017 Bell & Ross made a strong impression in the diving world with its BR03-92 Diver that boasts the iconic BR square and functional lines. It reaffirms the brand’s ability to produce professional underwater instruments.
The BR03-92 square diving watch has become a collection in its own right and now expands to include two new versions, the BR03-92 Diver Black Matte and the BR03-92 Diver Green Bronze.
Not every watch can be a diver watch. Official regulations set out very specific criteria defining a true diving watch. The ISO 6425 standard lists a great number of obligatory technical parameters. Those include water-resistance to a minimum depth of 100 meters; the presence of a unidirectional rotating bezel with a graduated minutes scale, an operation indicator and luminescent markers; legibility in the dark; anti-shock and anti-magnetic protection.
This new model in the BR03 DIVER collection, clad in its ceramic uniform, once again underlines the brand’s avant-garde vision.
The matte black ceramic is perfectly in tune with the aeronautical codes so crucial to the Bell & Ross philosophy. In the world of aeronautics, and especially space, ceramic is predominantly used in manufacturing parts that are subjected to very high temperatures, acid attacks, corrosion and erosion. As a result, it is found in products such as thermal shields and aerospace rocket’s noses.
As part of its on-going quest for excellence, Bell & Ross has reworked the high-tech ceramic and developed a special manufacturing process in its workshops. It enhances the intrinsic qualities of this material, which is virtually scratch-proof, pleasant to wear, soft to the touch and thermo-regulated, instantly reaching body temperature when worn. Almost as tough as a diamond, the high-tech ceramic developed by Bell & Ross is incredibly hardwearing, non-deformable, lighter than steel and hypoallergenic.
Reminiscent of the antireflective finish used on aircraft instrument panels, the matte black ceramic is perfectly in tune with the aeronautical codes so fundamental to Bell & Ross. The sober design, black dial, large white numerals, shape of the hands and photo luminescent coating allow immediate reading of the time, in broad daylight as well in darkness.
This new ceramic model reaffirms the brand’s functional and utilitarian approach and emphasizes its pioneering vision. By introducing a high-tech material in its professional underwater instruments, Bell & Ross has created a new must-have tool watch, and reinterprets the original values of the iconic BR 01.
