Few brands are better at bringing military inspired design to the civilian market than Bell & Ross. Doubt us? Just take a look at the French horologist’s recent Coast Guard-inspired BR V2-94 Garde-Cotes Watch.
Simple but loud, this timepiece stands out thanks to a classic design and bright coloring. Encased beneath the ultra-curved sapphire crystal, the watch’s matte grey face is home to two sub-dials, a date-window, and Superluminova indices. Along the outside of the face is a bright, high visibility orange. That nautical color is also featured prominently on two of the watch’s hands which are made all the more prominent thanks to the understated 41mm satin polished steel case and anodized black aluminum pulsometer scale along the bezel. Depending on your preference, the watch comes with a satin-polished steel bracelet or a black rubber strap. Of course, to top it all off, the timepiece has a water resistance rating down to 100 meters.
