In 2017, Bell & Ross launched their first ever BR 03-92 Divers watch, an instrument that delivered all the necessary equipment for underwater exploration within their legendary “circle within a square aesthetic”. Joining the collection today is the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver Brown Bronze, yet another formidable diving watch combining a rare bronze case with a warm chocolate dial.
Bell & Ross first used bronze within their BR 03-92 Divers collection back in 2018, just a year after the collection’s debut. Named the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver Bronze Black watch, it featured a classic black dial, a matching bronze bezel and a brown calfskin leather strap with a bronze pin buckle, all of which set the standard for the future B&R bronze watches to come including a blue dial, a green dial and a unusual but breathtaking red dial. Bronze could not be better suited to diving watches, having been used in nautical engineering for centuries due to its high corrosion resistance to saltwater. But what makes the material so popular with luxury watch enthusiasts? The answer: it’s naturally occurring patina which changes the colour of the case over time. This means that each and every case of the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Bronze Brown watch will be unique to its wearer.
Like the bronze BR 03-92 watches before it, the new Bell & Ross Bronze Brown Diver is limited to 999 pieces and features a 42mm by 42mm case engineered from CuSn8 bronze. To match, the bezel is also engineered from the patina-pending material and includes a brown anodized aluminium insert suitably detailed with a 60 minute divers scale. Also expectedly, the case features sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflective coating, a screw down crown, solid steel case back and is ISO compliant with a 300 metre water resistant rating.
The Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver Bronze Brown watch secures to the wrist by a choice of two straps. The first is a handsome matte brown leather strap with beige top stitching, offering a nice neo-retro feel. The second is a more classic black braided rubber strap for underwater use. Both are fitted with bronze pin buckles. Housed within the case is the BR-CAL.302 automatic winding movement. Based on the Sellita SW 300-1, it delivers 25 jewels, a 4Hz frequency, a 38 hour power reserve and classic hours, minutes, seconds and date functions.
New for the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver Bronze Brown watch is its dial which for the first time is decorated in a rich chocolate brown hue to pair with the brown aluminium bezel insert. The dial still delivers hardware we’ve come to expect including rounded rose gold-plated applique markers, baton-shaped hour and minute hands and a lollipop seconds hand, all of which are treated to white Superluminova inserts.
