Bell & Ross BR 01-96 & 97 Commando Limited Editions
July 21, 2009
Bell & Ross recently introduced two new professional watch models, within their Instrument collection, the BR 01-96 and BR 01-97 Commando Limited Editions. Specially designed for the elite fighting commando forces, each watch features a stealth grey color scheme and reflects no light.
Two models have been announced, both of which are limited to editions of 500 pieces. The Bell & Ross Commando BR 01-96 presents the hours minutes and sweep seconds, in addition to a large date display adjustable through the winding crown. The BR 01-97 features a conventional date display, but offers a circular power reserve indicator to reveal the degree of operating power remaining in the spring barrel.
Both of the Bell & Ross Commando watches are powered by ETA base calibers which have a power reserve of 42 hours. Anti-reflective flat sapphire crystals, and black superluminova-applied hands and bold hour and minute scales assure excellent readability in any lighting condition. The distinctive dials are matched by Bell & Ross grey rubber straps and powder coated buckles. Cloth straps are available optionally. Water-resistance is 100 meters.
