We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, bronze watches really have become the trend of the decade and Bell & Ross continue the movement with this stunning new Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver Bronze Blue watch. For the first time, the limited edition of 999 pieces brings together an extraordinary choice of materials that mirror the colour of the underwater depths. It’s ocean blue dial and breathtaking bronze case contrast beautifully for an appealing look that still promises to conquer the ocean.
Despite there being plenty of diver watches to choose from, very few watch brands have actually ventured into the abyss and explored the depths where pressure rises the deeper you go. Bell & Ross on the other hand have proven themselves as one of the greats, manufacturing professional solutions for those brave enough to venture deep into the ocean environment. The BR03-92 Diver Bronze Blue Limited Edition offers an outstanding range of technical features that allow for shallow diving in the sea.
The 300 metre water resistant case is engineered from the finest bronze alloys Cusn8 made up of 92% copper and 8% tin. This material not only looks stunning, but it is superior for its strength and resistance to corrosion. Bronze has a long history with diving as it was used in the past for deep-sea helmets and naval construction, and when used in watches, it comes with a distinctive characteristic that ages and changes colour over time. When exposed to moisture in the air and pH levels in perspiration, the bronze will develop a natural patina meaning there will be 999 limited edition pieces of this Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver Bronze Blue watch with a unique case bespoke to its wearer.
Measuring to 42mm in size, the case also comes equipped with a matching bronze and black rubber insert screw in crown and a breathtaking stainless steel screw down case back decorated with the image of a deep-sea diving helmet. For a wonderful juxtaposition, the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver Bronze Blue Limited Edition is fitted with a blue aluminium anodised unidirectional rotating bezel with 60 minute scale to pair with the ocean-coloured dial. The gold-plated applique indices and gold-plated skeletonised Super-Luminova filled hands continue the bronze and blue theme with perfect legibility.
Sheltered within the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver Bronze Blue is the BR-CAL.302 automatic winding movement, a Swiss made calibre which provides central hands for hours, minutes and seconds and a date window at 4.30H. The 25 jewelled automatic movement also promises a power reserve of 38 hours and a frequency of 28,800bph for optimal precision. The limited edition also comes with sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflective coating and two strap options including a blue calfskin leather and a blue rubber strap both fitted with a satin-polished bronze pin buckle.
Retailing at £3,500, the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver Bronze Blue Limited Edition is available to order today on the Jura Watches website here with free next day delivery and interest free finance options available.
