As a brand that originated as a team of aircraft control specialists and designers, it should be no surprise that Bell & Ross brings us the all new BR03-92 Military Type, a practical watch for professional use. We’ve seen the BR03 before and this exceptional swiss brand has developed 38 different models. Each distinguished in its own unique way, the BR03-92 Military Type follows suit as it pays tribute to the military profession. In true Bell & Ross fashion, the this watch reflects the four pillars that make B&R a noteworthy brand: readability, performance, precision and water-resistance.
For precision purposes, the BR03-92 Military Type is powered by the automatic mechanical movement BR.CAL.302 and is housed inside the military fashioned, khaki colored ceramic dial. Sticking to the Bell & Ross style the 42mm dial simplistically depicts the large type three, six, nine and twelve in their respective positions giving the watch an easy-to-read feeling. The option for a black rubber strap or a khaki heavy-duty canvas strap allows for a bit of customization while each ensure top performance for a physically demanding occasion. Besides the thematic color schemes behind this military inspired timepiece, it has a technical superiority that sets it apart from previous versions.
The BR03-92 Military Type is a nod to the brand’s aviation collection and stays specifically authentic to true military watches. Brandished with the symbolic red “MT” for military type, all of the indicators, including the numerals, tic marks, and hands, are coated with the photoluminescent, Superluminova® which makes for easy readability at night. As for the daytime, this timepiece is equipped with an antireflective sapphire assuring that this watch is able to handle some the most extreme conditions.
