Being a brand had practical experience in pilot’s watches – and plane pilots, yet additionally hustling pilots with a Formula 1-based association – Bell & Ross is no more bizarre to the chronograph complication. Indeed, you can locate this sort of development in basically the entirety of its assortments. And today, there’s another part coming to the Vintage family, with a case plan that doesn’t feel recognizable (at first…) Meet the new, powerful, more manly Bell & Ross BR V3-94 Black Steel.
The “Vintage” assortment is B&R’s take on the work of art, round watch – contradicted to the signature, notable BR01 and BR03 assortments, with the run of the mill “circle inside a square” plan. All things considered, it is more customary and plays on the retro pattern, with more modest extents, exceptionally domed sapphire gems and clean shows. There are even some lovely cool releases in bronze , as this JPS-roused model. Accordingly, it is to a lesser degree an apparatus/instrument piece than the remainder of the collection… however today, the Parisian brand brings some strength and intensity to the assortment with a bigger case and an upgraded shape. This is the new BR V3-94 Black Steel – compared underneath with the other exemplary chronograph of the assortment, the BR V2-94.
As you can see, we’re viewing at an increment in size as well as a complete update of the watch… Basically, another idea with an alternate livelihood.

Truth be told, it isn’t completely new to B&R, since this case was utilized in the past for Renault F1 Limited Editions just, and it currently discovers its way into the lasting collection.
More advancements are recognizable. Other than the shape and size, the bezel is presently bi-directional with an hour long scale imprinted on an anodized black aluminum embed, the design has advanced from a bi-compax to a 3-6-9 presentation and the chronograph pushers are straightforward siphons rather than (not all that down to earth) screwed catches. With everything taken into account, this watch is better adjusted for hustling and activity. A tachymeter scale is additionally present, imprinted on the internal flange.
