Bell & Ross Has Just Launched The Dual Time BR 05 GMT Range
There Is A Brand New BR 05 GMT On Sale Right Now.
Bell & Ross, the leading brand in the aviation watch market has just unveiled another iconic square model.
At 41 mm, it is 1 mm larger than the BR 03 which we believe was done to accommodate the new GMT function. Yes, this new watch has a Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) function that displays the time at two different points on the globe simultaneously giving inter-continental travelers an easy reference to time at home and at their destination.
The finish on this BR 05 shows high quality finish with its polished case and bezel. The provided water resistance up to 100 meters gives the wearer no reason to remove the watch in all conditions and situations.
Press Release: The BR 05 GMT is a combination of stainless and robust materials encasing the finest Swiss watchmaking mechanics. Equipped with an automatic caliber with GMT function, wound by a 360° oscillating weight, the new model reveals the beating heart of its movement through a sapphire glass case back.
The dial of the BR05, radiating with a subtle sunray finish, offers optimum legibility. Its black color contrasts with the large numerals, indices and hands coated in white Super-LumiNova®.
This color scheme is ingrained in Bell & Ross’ DNA. It echoes the colors used for on-board flight instruments. Cockpits are dominated by black, which prevents reflections, and white, which guarantees optimal reading. Intended to inform the traveler with the utmost clarity and precision, its graphics are very elaborated and the display is as rigorous as those of airport clocks. Echoing the principles of airport signaling, the skeletonized hour and minute hands are made of metal appliques.
The GMT hand can blend in perfectly with the BR 05 aesthetic and stands out here with its red arrow. White, black and red – symbolic colors of Bell & Ross – ensure perfect legibility both day and night.
More than a simple GMT hand, this arrow is mostly a symbol of orientation in time and space.
While the white hands on the main dial indicate the time at the wearer’s current location, the red arrow-hand on the 24-hour graduated inner bezel shows the time in his country of origin.
To read time at a glance, the black semi-circle on the flange corresponds to the night-time hours, the grey semi- circle to the daytime hours. To feature this 24h-scale and add the flange, the Bell & Ross creative studio worked on increasing the diameter of the dial and therefore the dimensions of the case. With this new function, and its 41 mm – mid-size dimensions, the BR 05 GMT makes it the ideal complement to the collection.
Functions: hours, minutes, central seconds, second 24-hour time zone and date. Quick setting of the GMT hand, independently of the hour hand.
