Although Bell & Ross is mostly known for its aviation-inspired timepieces, the brand’s offering also includes some high quality diving watches. Last year, the French watchmaker introduced its first square diving watch – the BR03-92 Diver. With this model, Bell & Ross made a strong impression on the diving world and further confirmed its ability to produce professional underwater instruments. Inspired by this success, the company is now proud to announce two new versions of the watch: the BR03-92 Diver Blue (ref. BR0392-D-BU-ST/SRB) and the BR03-92 Diver Bronze (ref. BBR0392-D-BL-BR/SCA). The latest Bell & Ross timepieces are now available at the brand’s boutiques and authorized dealers. The pricing has not yet been announced.

A symbol of the sea, blue was chosen as the theme color for the new BR03-92 Diver Blue. The watch features a blue dial, blue bezel and a blue rubber strap. Contrasting this color are the metal indices and hands filled with white Super-LumiNova. The hour hand is painted in yellow. Underwater, this color will vanish over the time due to the lack of light intensity. The hour hand will fade away to precedence to the minute hand which must be visible at all times to guarantee the diver’s safety. Combined with the iconic square design of the BR collections, the blue/white/yellow combination gives the BR03-92 Diver Blue a sporty yet attractive appeal.

The BR03-92 Diver Bronze, on the other hand, is more vintage-oriented. Featuring a bronze case and bezel, this model evokes the early days of diving when this material was using for diving helmets. Another diving helmet-related detail here is the case back engraved with, you guessed it, a  vintage diving helmet :) . The watch features a black dial with gold-plated indices and hands coated with white Super-LumiNova. The layout is the same as on the BR03-92 Diver Blue and includes hours, minutes, central seconds and date display between 4 and 5 o’clock. Limited to 999 pieces, the BR03-92 Diver Bronze comes on a vintage-inspired brown aged leather strap. The latter can be replaced with a rubber strap for use while diving.

Like all Bell & Ross instrument watches, the BR03-92 Diver Blue and BR03-92 Diver Bronze both meet the highest professional requirements. Only timepieces that satisfy the ISO 6425 standard can be labeled as “diving” watches. The parameters required include a water-resistance of no less than 100 meters, the presence of a unidirectional rotating bezel with a graduated scale, readable and legible dial with luminescent hands and indices, and anti-shock and anti-magnetic protection. The BR03-92 Diver Blue and BR03-92 Diver Bronze both meet this criteria and go even further than the required minimum, featuring a water resistance of up to 300 meters.
