Bell & Ross BR 03 Type A Patrouille de France Limited Edition

Bell & Ross presents a new watch designed and produced in close collaboration with the Patrouille de France pilots, whose emblem of course adorns the dial.

After entering into an official watchmaking partnership with the Patrouille de France in 2021, resulting in the launch of its first dedicated watch, Bell & Ross continues its aerial adventure with the BR 03 Type A Patrouille de France.

Designed for and by elite pilots, this new Bell & Ross chronograph features the emblematic square BR 03 case in steel, with a diameter of 42mm.

Intended for professional use, the watch is equipped with a quartz movement giving a dual analogue and digital display. The high drain battery provides 30 months of battery life. To provide the best possible readability, the hours and minutes are displayed with conventional hands, while the seconds are displayed on a digital screen. In addition, the bidirectional rotating bezel helps memorise time references.
