THE JEWEL OF STRENGTH
The BR 05 chronograph is the latest jewel of masculinity from Bell & Ross: full of character with carefully executed finishes, this sculptural and seductive instrument is chic and powerful, exuding strength and elegance. The finishes on the BR 05 chronograph leave nothing to chance: the satin-polished surfaces are perfectly flat and the polished bevels enhance the volumes they contain. Perfection hides in the details, as the saying goes. The BR 05 chronograph’s identity is also built on a multitude of small technical and aesthetic details which truly elevate it.
THE INTEGRATED DESIGN
The new BR 05 chronograph belongs to the family of watches with an integrated bracelet, featuring the same design where the case and bracelet are fused into one cohesive piece. “The case and bracelet form one unit” explains Bruno Belamich, the brand’s Creative Director. ” This type of design harks back to a category of watches which appeared in the 1970s and when infused with Bell & Ross’ signature identity, the resulting graphic style is both striking and modern.” The angle of the attachment to the bracelet has been carefully designed to follow the contours of the wrist, ensuring a secure and comfortable fit all day long, in any situation. The pushers, crown-guard and crown form a single piece which is perfectly incorporated into the volume of the case. By blending fluidity and robustness, the continuity of the lines of this piece becomes a part of its identity.
Another signature of its personality, the dial on the BR 05 chronograph ensures optimal legibility thanks to its graphics and its contrasts. Mid-way between round and square, another subtle reference to the 1970s, the shape of its two snailed counters (chronograph minute counter at 9 o’clock and small seconds at 3 o’clock), gives the BR05 a neo-retro look which in no way diminishes its modernity. Available in navy blue or jet black, the dials give each piece an urban, sporty style.
