Bell & Ross – Black & Bronze
At Bell & Ross, the steel edition chronograph wristwatch quickly became part of the brand’s DNA. The “full black” finish is also one of the details that have forged the reputation of each Bell & Ross collection, whether it is a “black dial”, “PVD black” or “black matte” wristwatch. A few finishing details, shape details, font details, colour details together form the brand identity. In the end, watchmaking is only a sum of details… that makes all the difference! And if the adage is that the devil nestles in details, at Bell & Ross, all these details are as many opportunities, in each edition of a chronograph watch in the collection, to prove its difference. In this respect, Bell & Ross is playing the card of the heritage of Swiss watchmaking, in perpetual movement to achieve perfect craftsmanship on each watch, from the calibre to the watch case, from the chronograph to the water-resistance of all its parts, including any tourbillon, sapphire crystal, seconds hand, minutes, skeleton dial, etc.
To date, the “full black” square watch format is very clearly one of the distinctive signs by which a steel chronograph or, more generally, a Bell & Ross watches can be instantly recognised – including a diver’s diving watch from the Diver collection, where it is rather rare to find a square-shaped steel case. Even before the card of calibre and complications is drawn, the Bell & Ross aesthetic signature is essential. This BRV 2-94 chronograph is no exception. A pure Chrono that shows, through all the design details, that it belongs to a true 100% Bell & Ross collection.
GOLD & BLACK: THE NEW “BELLYTANKER” EDITION CHRONOGRAPH
Drawing on the heritage of the wristwatch, and more precisely the chronograph, Bell & Ross has just published a BRV 2-94 Bellytanker Bronze chronograph that combines steel and bronze, with always this “black” touch that can be seen on the dial of this new edition. Its steel case contains a Swiss Made calibre as for every collector’s wristwatch made by Bell & Ross. The dial is bronze, giving this Bellytanker chronograph a vintage look that is dear to the brand.
The bezel of the case of this chronograph watch has a black tachymeter scale, echoing the flange and “full black” counters of the dial. At 4:30 am, this new edition of a steel chronograph displays the date, an addition to the purely vintage style but which most Bell & Ross collectors want for its practical and contemporary character – participants in these small details that form the balance of a beautiful Bell & Ross chronograph.
As in every collection, Bell & Ross has played the safety card thanks to a scratchproof sapphire crystal that protects the watch from external aggressions. Last but not least, the brown leather strap, a vintage spirit that, like every watch that can be inherited, will skate with time. This is an attractive option chosen here by Bell & Ross, which is not systematic for each collection – on the square case of its Diver collection, the brand plays the diving card with a rubber strap, while it’s racing chronograph prefers a steel bracelet or an ultra-resistant composite bracelet.
THE IDEAL COMPROMISE?
With its bronze/champagne colour details, combined with the “full black” elements visible under the sapphire crystal, Bell & Ross has succeeded in creating to date a collector’s chronograph watch with slightly vintage accents, very distinct from its “Diver” universe, while borrowing its steel case, its Swiss Made calibre, a sapphire crystal and the date window under the chronograph counter. The polished steel case gives this new Bell & Ross the look of a discreet but raw wristwatch chronograph, subtle addition to the BRV collection (for Bell & Ross Vintage) that will delight collectors of mechanical movement chronographs.
