Swiss watch brand Bell & Ross is extending its new BR 05 collection designed for urban explorers by adding a new chronograph model, whose style and technical complexity fit perfectly in a resolutely urban setting.
The BR 05 Chronograph watch comes in a stainless steel case. The lines of its 42-mm case combine round and square, the basic geometric shapes which form the identity of the Bell & Ross brand. Full of character with carefully executed finishes, this masculine watch is chic and powerful, exuding strength and elegance.
The satin-polished surfaces are perfectly flat and the polished bevels enhance the volumes they contain. The BR 05 chronograph’s identity is also built on a multitude of small technical and aesthetic details which truly elevate it.
The new 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.
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.
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.
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.
The dial on the BR 05 chronograph ensures optimal legibility thanks to its graphics and its contrasts. 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 BR05 a neo-retro look which in no way diminishes its modernity.
The sapphire crystal caseback enables the owner of this modern chronograph to admire the self-winding mechanical movement that beats inside.
Available in navy blue or jet black, the dials give each piece an urban, sporty style. Featuring an integrated steel bracelet, the BR 05 chronograph is also available with a blue or black rubber strap offering a truly stylish alternative.
