The New Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver Red Bronze
Bell & Ross designed and launched the BR 03-92 Diver as the first diver’s timepiece with the ‘circle in a square’ case that characterises the brand. Besides the squared case, the brand is also renowned for the tonneau-cased BR-02 model in 2007 and the round-cased Hydromax edition in 1997. Now:
The new Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver Red Bronze watch comes with the brand’s signature squared, satin-brushed case of 42mm.
- It is crafted of the bronze alloy CuSn8 that has 8% tin and 92% copper.
- However, this bronze alloy invokes diving history because people used the material for naval construction and deep-sea helmets.
- The timepiece sports a screwed crown that ensures water-resistant to an impressive depth of 300m.
Interestingly, the watchmaker equipped the screwed crown with an impact-resistant guard and a rubber insert that makes the watch easy to handle.
The Red Bezel & Dial
The new Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver Red Bronze flaunts a calibrated unidirectional bezel to help diversto help divers set dive times. It is also crafted of bronze alloy. However, its inset ring is made up of red anodised aluminium.
- The 60-minute scale has a luminous dot at a 12-hour marker for orientation.
- Interestingly, the red aluminium bezel reiterates the dial colour that features Super-LumiNova applied hour markers and hands.
Moreover, a sapphire crystal with 2.85mm thickness and a non-reflective coating covers the dial. Furthermore, the case-back consists of a sapphire pane measuring 2.8mm in thickness.
The Case-back & Movement
The Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver is crafted of steel instead of bronze, preventing discolouring of the wearer’s skin. The fact is that bronze cases develop a patina over the years and when exposed to the elements.
- However, the surface flaunts a deep-sea diver’s helmet that pays homage to the timepiece’s preferable ambience.
- Inside the watch, a soft iron cage includes the brand’s automatic BR-Calibre 302 movement, protecting from the magnetic fields.
- Bell & Ross designed the movement based on the durable Sellita SW 300.1 movement.
- The BR-Cal. 302 automatic movement offers 38hours of power reserve, beating at a frequency of 28,800vph.
However, the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver Red Bronze features a reddish-brown leather strap that echoes the red bezel and dial. The watch also comes with a more ready-to-dive black rubber strap and is available in a limited number of 999pieces.
