There is a long and celebrated history of watches being specially made for the military. Bell & Ross tap into that history with their latest watch, the V2-92, by decorating it with an olive drab dial. The watch would make a perfect match for uniforms, but will look just as prestigious on a civilian’s wrist.
Bell & Ross watches are well known for their cockpit instrument cluster inspired design. The V2-92 uses that design, boasting a combination of black outlined batons and Arabic numerals. The minute track is also done in black and lines the outer periphery of the watch. The sword-shaped minute hand reaches all the way out to the edge, making it easy to read the time. Between four and five o’clock there’s a circular date window. And since missions are just as likely to happen at night as during the day, the markers and hands are coated in Green Super-LumiNova.
For durability, the 41mm case is made of stainless steel. A bi-directional rotating bezel with a black aluminium insert tops the case. At three o’clock there’s a screw-down crown. Covering the dial is a box sapphire crystal. There’s a sapphire crystal on the back as well, which gives a peek at the calibre BR-CAL 302 that controls the motion. The watch is an automatic movement set to an operating frequency of 4 Hz. It has a 38-hour power reserve and is water-resistant to 100 meters. Bell & Ross’s BR V2-92 comes on a khaki and black elastic canvas strap or on a satin-polished steel bracelet. Whether you’re putting on your dress uniform or BDU, or you’re gearing up for a night on the town, the Bell & Ross BR V2-92 in military green will keep you fully outfitted.
