Bell & Ross BR03-92 Diver Black Matte

Bell & Ross

by Sea Time – The Clocks of the Sea

In 1997, just a few years after debuting on the watchmaking scene, Bell & Ross caused a sensation by introducing Hydromax, a timepiece designed to withstand a pressure of 1,110 bar the same as that found at a depth of 11,100 meters. An achievement made possible by an innovative technique that involves filling the case with a patented transparent fluorinated oil.

In 2017, the unveiling of the BR-03 Diver definitively and indissolubly sealed the bond between the watchmaker and the sixth continent.

It seems clear that the sea is now one of the pillars of Bell&Ross’ offerings. A path taken consistently and with full respect for the values that, in just under 30 years of activity, have enabled the French maison to carve out an important space in the world of hands.

How? Leveraging the power of ideas and the breaking of patterns. Hence the intuition to propose for the first time on a diver’s watch the iconic square case, on which the circular bezel stands out, reminiscent of the instruments found in the cockpit of an airplane.

This timepiece moves the bar even higher in terms of innovation and introduces matte black ceramic to the scene.

In the Maison’s Swiss laboratories, a hi-tech ceramic has been developed that is highly prized because, lightweight, unscratchable, resistant to impact and wear, soft to the touch, and above all, thermoregulated-that is, it adapts instantly to body temperature.

 

Like all diver’s watches, the BR03-92 Diver Matte Black also brings with it some indispensable features during diving. Starting with the unidirectional rotating bezel, also made of ceramic, with a graduated scale characterized in this case by the presence of 1-minute markings from 0 to 20 minutes and 5-minute markings from 20 to 60 minutes. Not enough. ISO 6425 certification ensures other performances for the timepiece among which are the display of indications on the dial even in low-light conditions and the ability to read the markers at a minimum distance of 25 centimeters. A professional tool designed in every detail.

Such as the hour hand, which, thanks to its orange coloring, can be distinguished from the minute hand, leaving the latter easily recognizable so as to facilitate the calculation of dive times.

Not the least of which is water resistance: the BR03-92 Diver Matte Black is insured to a depth of 300 meters. Performance these also arise from the choice to adopt a 2.85 mm-thick anti-reflective sapphire crystal that protects a black dial on which skeletonized applied metal indexes filled with Superluminova stand out. The 42mm-diameter case houses the self-winding mechanical caliber BR-CAL 302.
