French timekeepers Bell & Ross have welcomed their latest addition to the family, the BR05, a sleek steel sports watch boasting an integrated case that fuses with the bracelet.
In the words of Bruno Belamich, Bell & Ross’ co-founder and creative director, “This type of design harks back to the Seventies, and when transposed to Bell & Ross, it creates a result with a graphic style which is both striking and modern.”
Gorgeous satin-finished surfaces adorn the angular steel casing, which is a tidy 40 mm in width, balancing out the sporty facade with a petite elegance. If you find the BR05 a little too sleek, there’s always the option of playing it down with a ribbed rubber strap. Customers also have the choice of ‘silver grey’, ‘navy blue’ or ‘deep black’ dials.
For true enthusiasts, the BR05 can also be snapped up with a limited-edition skeleton dial and mechanism, of which there are just 500 examples. If you really want to level up, an 18-carat rose gold version of the case & bracelet will really help you stand out from the crowd.
What are your thoughts on Bell & Ross’ debut incursion into the steel sports watch segment? In our opinion, the blue dial on steel below is our pick of the bunch.
