It’s nothing new to see watch brands draw inspiration from military or aviation history. If anything, it’s become an expected old standard. What’s really impressive, however, is how watchmakers keep managing to find new and interesting ways to do it. Such is the case with the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Bi-Compass.

Gorgeous, simple, and straightforward in its modernist design, this timepiece is actually modeled after old in-cockpit jet aircraft compasses. And the attention to detail is remarkable — even the dual-shade U.S. Navy-derived SuperLuminova coloring on the dial and hands is spot-on. The case is crafted from a matte black ceramic, housing a calibre BR-CAL.302 Automatic mechanical movement, which is mated to a utilitarian black rubber strap (and there’s also a synthetic fabric one included). All told, this 999-piece limited edition military-inspired wristwatch is further proof that Bell & Ross has earned their place amongst the horology greats. The price is set at $3,900.

Purchase: $3,900
