Bell & Ross went big at this year’s Baselworld, introducing a range of unique high-performance watches. Among them was the limited edition BR 03-92 Diver Green Bronze, a military-grade eye-popper that combines vintage aesthetics and modern mechanics to robust perfection. Paying tribute to its historic predecessors, the watch features a signature square case of trusty bronze, which surrounds a handsome olive green dial with gold-plated appliqué indices. A true professional in every sense of the concept, Bell & Ross’ latest is in total compliance with both military and diving requirements, as if the brand would have it any other way.
Everything about the BR 03-92 Diver Green Bronze emanates with a sense of purpose. For example, bronze has deep roots both under the sea and in historic military campaigns. Though inalterable, the sturdy material develops a rich patina over time. Along similar lines, the colour of olive green conjures associations with military camouflage. Appearing together for the first time on a Bell & Ross model, the two elements make for utterly natural bedmates. Flip the watch over, meanwhile, to find a 1940s diver engraving on the case-back.
Thanks to SuperLuminova inserts on the dial face and water resistance to 300m, the BR 03-92 Diver Green Bronze is prepared for the deepest and darkest of plunges. It measures in at 42mm and runs on mechanical automatic calibre BR-CAL.302. Get this limited edition legend before it’s gone.
