Pilot watches are a special breed, much like the pilots who wear them. They offer distinct legibility and often have added functions, or vintage inspirations. Bell & Ross, a brand that began as a military- and pilot-inspired line, continues to surprise and delight us with its timepieces. In just a few weeks in BaselWorld 2014, the brand will unveil the BR 03-94 Carbon Orange – on a bright orange canvas strap — in a limited edition of 500 pieces. This new watch reflects the two most important colors in cockpit instruments: matte black and bright orange. The BR 03-94 Carbon Orange, with ETA 2894 automatic movement, offers optimum legibility. The watch is made of black PVD steel, with orange polycarbonate ABS protective cover on the tappet and a photo luminescent dial complete with orange center seconds hand. For those who like a more toned-down look—though the orange is bold and superb – it is offered with a black rubber strap.
