Bell & Ross Reenvisions Its New-Age BR 05 As A Precise Chronograph

Oct 23, 2020

Category: Style

Bell & Ross was already making waves with its iconic BR 05 watch well before it was placed in the spotlight due to its unique design philosophy. As one of the most interesting models within the world of integrated-bracelet timekeepers, it’s been lauded as a contemporary alternative to the brand’s timeless offerings. And now, the brand has sweetened the deal with the all-new Chrono — outfitting the staple with a functionally-sound mechanical complication.

For those who want to take their mastery over the “fleeting nature of time” to the next level, the Bell & Ross BR 05 Chrono represents a more traditional direction in the mechanical nature of the watch. A satin-finished, polished steel case and screw-down crown house the 05’s newly-implemented calibre BR-CAL.301 automatic mechanical movement, accenting its shadowy, black sunray dial. To keep things legible, a set of Super-LumiNova-filled applique numerals provide an interesting contrast against the watch’s skeletonized hour and minute hands, marching to the beat of the drum behind the Chrono’s anti-reflective sapphire crystal. If you’re interested in picking up one of your own, head to Bell & Ross’s website, where the unique example is listed for sale at a cool $6,400.
