Bell & Ross 05 Chrono Edición Limitada Is For Cigar Aficionados
Bell & Ross 05 Chrono Edición Limitada is the 3rd piece in its series.
Back in 2006, French-Swiss watchmaker Bell & Ross took on the world of cigar lovers with the BR Vintage 126 XL Edición Limitada. 9 years later, they unveiled the follow up, the WW1 Edición Limitada. Now the company has added a third model in the series, the BR 05 Chrono Edición Limitada.
This latest entry is based on the 42mm BR 05, which takes the iconic BR 03‘s square case with 4 screws and softens the lines while rounding the corners. Additionally, the case and integrated strap are now in one piece.
The watch face is finished in brown with pink and gold accents accompanying. Deep red lettering and dials complete the look while the case and strap are predominantly steel. It’s worth noting that the gold on the bezel and strap links is real.
The chronograph has a strong Havana-inspired look inspired by the region’s cigars. Bell & Ross say that if this watch were a cigar, it would be the Robusto Maduro. This watch is delivered in a classy previous wood box adorned with varnished ebony on the outside with cedar wood on the inside.
The case can easily be used as an authentic cigar box.
Only 250 pieces will be made available. Own yours today for RM53,300.
