The interface between Bell & Ross and flying is notable and the brand’s notorious watch, the BR, is molded after dashboard instruments – the commonplace “circle inside a square” case. Be that as it may, aeronautics doesn’t essentially mean compressed suits and fly warriors. Aeronautics is additionally about commercial flights and recreation planes. And what happens when you’re out of your plane? Indeed, in this unique situation, the new, urbanized Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Blue Steel ought to be the answer.
Apart from the moderate, unpleasant looking completely dark covered or earthenware watches offered by Bell & Ross as a center assortment, the brand likewise realizes that a portion of its authorities don’t structure part of a military commando or travel in a fly warrior. The truth is that the vast majority of the Bell & Ross watches are worn consistently (astonishing, isn’t it?). Hence, the brand began to offer watches with a similar plan yet with more refined subtleties, like brushed and cleaned cases and more conventional dials. In light of the current BR 03-94 Blue Steel Chronograph, the brand presently offers a period and-date version.
The new Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Blue Steel keeps the essentials of a B&R watch, which means the notorious square case, with four practical screws and a round opening for the dial. Measurements are as yet on the enormous side, with a 42mm x 42mm case (which is still better compared to the old 45mm instance of the BR 01), however with a rather thin profile. The primary contrast with the military-arranged pieces is that this regular citizen watch includes a glossy silk completed case (round on top, vertically brushed on the casebands) with cleaned highlights – giving it a more refined, more tasteful look.
Continuing toward this path, the dial of Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Blue Steel not just shows a more conventional tone – for this situation, a dark blue – however it additionally has a sunray example to make reflections. Lists and numerals are imprinted in white Super-LumiNova while the hands are metallic, half-cleaned and half-matte. By and large, the traditional plan components are available however treated in a more contemporary, more non military personnel way. Coordinating the dial is a blue calfskin leather tie – once more, less field-situated than the standard rubber.
Powering the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Blue Steel is the calibre BR-CAL.302, in other words, a programmed Sellita SW 200-1. It shows the hours, minutes and seconds on the focal pivot and a date in a window at 4:30. While I’m ordinarily rather hesitant to see the date on such military pieces, its essence bodes well here.
