Bell & Ross BR 05 GMT White

Bell & Ross has released a white dial version of the BR 05 GMT watch.

The BR 05 collection was launched in 2019 with a classic three hand watch with a 40 mm case. In 2021, the first BR 05 GMT with dual time zone was introduced. This 41 mm watch features a black dial.

White is a common colour in watchmaking. It is however quite rare within the Bell & Ross range. This shortcoming has been remedied with this BR 05 GMT White which follows on from the first Bell and Ross BR 05 GMT watch with a black dial.

In addition to the hour, minutes and seconds functions, the BR 05 GMT White has a red hand for indicating a second time zone, displayed on a 24-hour scale with day/night indication. Additionally, the watch indicates the date via a large aperture at 3 o’clock.

The 41 mm case of the Bell and Ross BR 05 GMT White is entirely made of steel. Its finishes alternate between polished and satin-brushed.

The hour and minute hands, numerals and indexes are covered with photo luminescent Super-LumiNova. The open caseback with sapphire crystal, characteristic of the BR 05 family, allows the original oscillating weight to be admired at 360°. Its design is inspired by a sports car rim.

The Bell and Ross GMT White is powered by the self-winding BR-CAL 325 calibre. The second time zone hand completes one revolution of the dial in 24 hours. It displays the time via a 24-hour scale, painted on the flange ring. This element is painted in two different tones: one for the day (between 6am and 6 pm) and the other for the night (between 6 pm and 6 am).

Designed in steel, the integrated bracelet adopts a satin finish. Only the centre attachment links are polished. A second rubber strap is available, for a more sporty style and a more attractive price.
