Bell & Ross presents BR 05 Skeleton Nightlum, a new addition to its BR 05 collection dedicated to urban explorers.
Building on from the success of its predecessors – the BR 05 SKELETON was adorning a grey dial in 2019 and a blue version was released in 2020 -, the skeleton movement of the BR 05 now attires itself in black with a hint of green.
Launched in 2019, Bell & Ross BR 05 belongs to the family of watches with an integrated bracelet: the bracelet fuses with the case to create a unified piece.
The main characteristic of the BR 05 SKELETON timepieces is the work of skeletonization on the movement and the highlight of the beauty and sophistication of the fine mechanics.
Equipped with a BR-CAL.322 mechanism, wound by a 360° black PVD coated oscillating weight, the back of the model discreetly reveals the skeletonized manufacture movement. Pushing the challenge of transparency to a climax, the open-worked dial forms a clear window through which the movement – also fully covered with black PVD – can be admired. This display completes the lace effect of the cut-out bridges and confirms its uncluttered style.
The new BR 05 SKELETON NIGHTLUM is in keeping with a graphic and design spirit thanks to its precious finishes and contemporary trim.
Super-Luminova® treatment facilitates reading during the day and at nighttime. Thus, the metal applique skeletonized indices and hands are filled with green-emitting Super-LumiNova® C5. This type was specifically chosen for its pale yet strong green daytime color and its exceptional brightness qualities. When the night falls, the pale green background turns fluorescent green and will allow a persistent reading during the night hours.
This intense green light offers an excellent luminescence that contrasts with the black dial. Made from smoked-tinted sapphire crystal, the graphic dial boasts clear indications and lends great depth. While the shape of the indices was designed like a neon light strips installation, reminiscent of a new form urban art; the hands figuratively represent lightsabers. The whole seems to be floating weightlessly in the dial.
