Ever since the square cased Bell & Ross BR-03-92 was launched in 2017, it has become a staple of the brand, appealing to those watch fans looking to go beyond their aviation inspired offerings.
It’s easy to see why this might be, since the watch keeps to the signature case aesthetic of the Bell & Ross brand and venturing into an all new genre – diving watches.
Large, bold and aesthetically unique, quite a few variations have already been released, such as the Bronze and the magnificent Full Lum Divers as notable examples.
Now Bell & Ross are putting a more classic spin on the watch, introducing the new BR-03-92 Diver Orange that comes unsurprisingly with an orange dial.
Now the colour orange for the dial of a diving watch is most famously associated with Doxa and the Sub 300, a watch that was released in 1967 at Baselworld. It makes sense for a diving watch since above water, it is highly visible for safety, and underwater, it disappears after red and yellow, which provides tremendous contrast to the white hands for readability.
In this watch, Bell & Ross has decided to adhere to the vintage vibe of the colour, by giving the watch a black anodised aluminium bezel as opposed to a modern ceramic one.
Helping the presentation along are the raised luminous indices against the orange dial that give a sense of depth to the dial, as all as a date wheel in a matching orange.
The watch also comes mounted on a black rubber strap with an orange Velcro strap in the box as well. This new Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver Orange is a 250 piece limited edition available only at Bell & Ross boutiques or online via the Bell & Ross e-boutique, priced at SGD$5600:
