Bell & Ross’ Stylish BR V2-94 Chrono Is Its First Full-Lume Vintage Watch

Bell & Ross’ Vintage Collection of watches is known mainly for its classic styling, but now the brand is bringing some modern ingenuity to the line with the BR V2-94 Full Lum chronograph.

The Bell & Ross BR V2-94 Full Lum takes the already excellent and highly attractive BR V2-94 design and gives it a flamboyant and functional twist by incorporating multiple shades of Super-LumiNova into every aspect of the dial. To do so, B&R went with a pair of uncommon Super-LumiNova colorways — pale green for the dial and pale yellow for the hands and indices — to make the watch stand out even in the daytime. But it’s when the lights go out that the watch really comes alive, with the two lume styles brilliantly playing off each other as the 30-minute chronograph register and chrono seconds hand also come alive with a surprisingly bright blue lume treatment. The overall result is one of the most impressive lume displays we’ve seen on any watch, and it makes one of the best-looking pilot’s chronographs around even more visually interesting.
