The connect between Bell & Ross and aeronautics is notable and the brand’s famous watch, the BR, is molded after dashboard instruments – the commonplace “circle inside a square” case. Notwithstanding, aeronautics doesn’t essentially mean compressed suits and stream contenders. Flying is additionally about commercial flights and recreation planes. And what happens when you’re out of your plane? All things considered, in this unique situation, the new, urbanized Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Blue Steel ought to be the answer.
Apart from the moderate, harsh looking completely dark covered or earthenware watches offered by Bell & Ross as a center assortment, the brand likewise realizes that a portion of its gatherers don’t structure part of a military commando or travel in a fly warrior. The truth is that the majority of the Bell & Ross watches are worn consistently (astounding, isn’t it?). Therefore, the brand began to offer watches with a similar plan however with more refined subtleties, like brushed and cleaned cases and more proper dials. In light of the current BR 03-94 Blue Steel Chronograph, the brand presently offers a period and-date version.
The new Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Blue Steel keeps the rudiments of a B&R watch, which means the notable square case, with four practical screws and a round gap for the dial. Measurements are as yet on the enormous side, with a 42mm x 42mm case (which is still better compared to the old 45mm instance of the BR 01), however with a fairly thin profile. The principle contrast with the military-arranged pieces is that this regular citizen watch includes a silk completed case (round on top, vertically brushed on the casebands) with cleaned highlights – giving it a more refined, more tasteful look.
Continuing toward this path, the dial of Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Blue Steel not just shows a more conventional tone – for this situation, a dark blue – however it additionally has a sunray example to make reflections. Lists and numerals are imprinted in white Super-LumiNova while the hands are metallic, half-cleaned and half-matte. Generally, the traditional plan components are available however treated in a more contemporary, more non military personnel way. Coordinating the dial is a blue calfskin cowhide tie – once more, less field-situated than the standard rubber.
Powering the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Blue Steel is the calibre BR-CAL.302, as such, a programmed Sellita SW 200-1. It shows the hours, minutes and seconds on the focal pivot and a date in a window at 4:30. While I’m typically somewhat hesitant to see the date on such military pieces, its essence bodes well here.
