Bell & Ross BR 05 Blue Gold
The Bell & Ross BR 05 Blue Gold is the latest addition to the ever-burgeoning BR 05 family of models. In this instance, the 40mm BR 05 case is executed in 18 ct rose gold and paired with a blue sunray dial.
In 2019, Bell & Ross, recognising the pent up demand for steel sports watches, released its BR 05 model. Several brands have witnessed consumers waiting inordinately long periods of time to acquire the watch of their dreams, hence Bell & Ross’s decision to tap into this frustration was a shrewd move.
This inaugural model was offered in three dial options: black, blue and grey. In addition, the model was available with either a steel bracelet or a rubber strap.
At the same time, the brand released a limited-edition skeleton model and also announced its intention to release an 18 ct rose gold version a few weeks later. This latter model featured a black dial and, once again, was offered with a choice of gold bracelet or rubber strap.
Clearly this model has been a commercial success as Bell & Ross has since released additional skeleton options as well as bi-metallic variants. Now the luxury brand has returned with another a gold option, the Bell & Ross BR 05 Blue Gold. Housed in a 40mm case, it is virtually identical to the existing 18 ct rose gold option, except it is presented with a rich blue dial.
Based on the proliferation of new variants, it seems the Bell & Ross BR 05 is on a roll.
The brand’s press release
Newest addition to the collection, the BR 05 goes golden. This timepiece combines elegance and sophistication in an integrated design.
The BR 05 BLUE GOLD is the embodiment of functionalism and minimalism. Its satin-finished and polished 18k rose gold case offers a subtle contrast with its navy blue sunray dial. Ensuring optimum legibility, the rose gold gilded applique numerals and indices as well as the 18k rose gold gilded skeletonized hour and minute hands are filled with Super-LumiNova®.
The 18k rose gold sapphire case-back gracefully showcases the BR-CAL.321. mechanism with a 360° golden oscillating weight. The intense blue dial boosts the golden tone and provides elegance and refinement to this timeless sport chic watch.
With its architectural construction made of surfaces and angles, the BR 05 BLUE GOLD – 40 mm in width – will perfectly fit the wrist of its wearer. Thanks to a hyper flexible bracelet, which articulates easily, the curve of the watch will be in total harmony with the natural contour of the wrist.
Equipped with an ergonomic satin-finished and polished 18k rose gold bracelet, built according to the brand’s codes, this jewel of strength can also be completed with a ribbed blue rubber strap and a satin-finished and polished 18k rose gold folding buckle.
The BR 05 is already an iconic watch thanks to its square shape, its round dial ensuring optimum legibility, its broad dimensions, and the efficiency of its functional design. Made for the city, modern and comfortable, the BR 05 GOLD BLUE is a precious ally for urban explorers for their everyday life in the city. A dialogue of colour and material for a timeless and distinguished piece.
