Bell & Ross recently debuted a new version of their 42 mm square-shaped dive watch with a bronze alloy case and a navy blue dial.
The BR03-92 Diver Bronze Navy Blue is available now in a limited edition of 250 pieces, only available in the Americas. The case and bezel are made of a CuSn8 bronze alloy which consists of 92% copper and 8% tin.
In contrast to the bronze case material is a navy blue metallic dial with gold-plated applied luminous indices, gold-plated luminous hands, and a printed white chapter ring – making for a clutter-free readout of the time.
An outsourced automatic Swiss movement drives hours, minutes, central seconds, and the date. The watch is protected by a sapphire crystal, screw-in caseback, and screw-down crown, as well as having a unidirectional dive bezel, and a water-resistance rating of 300 meters.
Bronze is strongly linked to diving history and was used historically for deep-sea helmets, and so in addition to the bronze used for the case, the presentation box is highlighted with bronze edges, like on deep-sea helmets of the past. The BR03-92 Diver Bronze Navy Blue comes with a blue calfskin leather strap with a black synthetic fabric backing and bronze pin buckle. (Ref. BR0392-D-BU-BR/SCA)
