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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
