Bell & Ross BR 05 Chrono Is Not Just For Drivers
The adventurous spirit will want one
The Bell & Ross BR 05 remains a classic style for sports watches with integrated bracelets. The 2020 BR 05 Chrono is now 42 mm in diameter and presented in polished stainless steel. It is designed to be worn 24/7 for the urban gentleman and also the hard working man who loves his wrist attraction.
Just a year ago on the 26th of September 2019, Bell & Ross unveiled their 2019 elegant timepiece, the BR05 in Malaysia. The 2019 BR05 looked more like a mature BR 03 with its slimmed down sides and shared elements with the classy looking Bell & Ross Royal Oak. Now comes a revised model in 2020. The recommended Retail Prices is RM26,000 for the rubber strap and RM28,500 for the steel bracelet.
Founded in 1992 by childhood friends and college students Bruno Belamich and Carlos Rosillo (“Bell” from Belamich and “Ross” from Rosillo), Bell & Ross has, from its earliest days, focused its design on military inspirations and pilot’s watches.
PRESS RELEASE: The BR 05 chronograph is the latest jewel of masculinity from Bell & Ross, arriving with full of character and carefully executed finishes, this sculptural and seductive instrument is chic and powerful, exuding strength and elegance.
The finishes on the BR 05 chronograph leave nothing to chance: the satin-polished surfaces are perfectly flat and the polished bevels enhance the volumes they contain. Perfection hides in the details, as the saying goes.
The BR 05 chronograph’s identity is also built on a multitude of small technical and aesthetic details which truly elevate it.
The new BR 05 chronograph belongs to the family of watches with an integrated bracelet, featuring the same design where the case and bracelet are fused into one cohesive piece.
“The case and bracelet form one unit” explains Bruno Belamich, the brand’s Creative Director. ” This type of design harks back to a category of watches which appeared in the 1970s and when infused with Bell & Ross’ signature identity, the resulting graphic style is both striking and modern.”
The angle of the attachment to the bracelet has been carefully designed to follow the contours of the wrist, ensuring a secure and comfortable fit all day long, in any situation.
The pushers, crown-guard and crown form a single piece which is perfectly incorporated into the volume of the case. By blending fluidity and robustness, the continuity of the lines of this piece becomes a part of its identity.
Another signature of its personality, the dial on the BR 05 chronograph ensures optimal legibility thanks to its graphics and its contrasts.
Mid-way between round and square, another subtle reference to the 1970s, the shape of its two snailed counters (chronograph minute counter at 9 o’clock and small seconds at 3 o’clock), gives the new BR05 a neo-retro look which in no way diminishes its modernity.
Available in navy blue or jet black, the dials give each piece an urban, sporty style.
Featuring an integrated steel bracelet, the BR 05 chronograph is also available with a blue or black rubber strap offering a truly stylish alternative.
