With the new BR 03-92 A522, Swiss watch brand Bell & Ross celebrates its partnership with the BWT Alpine F1® Team.
With each new Formula 1® season, BWT Alpine F1® Team develops a new racing car in response to the latest regulation and innovation demands. A new livery seals the design of this latest technology achievement.
Similarly, each year, Bell & Ross, offers a new collection by reinterpreting different sources of inspiration such as the steering wheel, the chassis and BWT Alpine F1® Team graphics.
This year, the BR 03-92 A522 completes the series of Alpine timepieces, subtly adopting its colour and graphics while meeting the specifications of the team’s drivers. It is called A522, in reference to the current Alpine A522 racing car.
With its 42 mm ceramic case, this new watch combines resistance, lightness and legibility. Reminiscent of the anti-reflective tints of the dashboards, the matt black also respects the codes of a utilitarian design. The matt finish also reduces reflections for better legibility also provides a soft texture to the touch.
The white and blue dial of this sporty timepiece takes its designs cue from the speedometer of an Alpine car referencing the brand’s signature colour code.
It features large white numerals, coated with Super-LumiNova®, which contrast with the surrounding black, allowing for easy readability, both in daylight and at night. Italic typography conveys an idea of speed and dynamism.
The counterweight of the central blue seconds hand takes up the stylised A of Alpine. A mini blue/ white/red flag recalling Alpine’s tricolour origins is placed above the date window at 6 o’clock and the Alpine’s signature blue is used to highlight the minute track on the flange.
The Bell and Ross BR 03-92 A522 watch is powered by the automatic BR-CAL.302 movement, 3 date hands.
This timepiece comes with an ultra-breathable micro-perforated rubber strap.
