42mm stainless steel case, automatic movement with GMT function, black dial, black & red bezel, black leather strap and black fabric strap.
An indispensable tool for aircraft pilots and an ally for globetrotters, but also useful for those who are currently needing to keep track of multiple time zones simultaneously.
Horologically speaking, the GMT function was first developed to meet with both the needs and specifications of aviators and especially pilots. The acronym GMT is used to indicate a second time zone but not necessarily from Greenwich. This complication has since been popularized and is nowadays commonly used by travellers. Bell & Ross has made aviation, particularly aeronautical instruments, its speciality. Its designs very often match specifications created by professional users.
An indispensable tool for aircraft pilots and an ally for globetrotters, but also useful for those who are currently needing to keep track of multiple time zones simultaneously. Certainly useful when travelling around the world, this function is worth having if your activity occurs in different time zones. It is also the ultimate utilitarian tool watch when working remotely and wanting to stay in sync with an overseas office or when you need to schedule meetings across different time zones.
The new BR 03-93 GMT timepiece provides the time in three different locations around the world. How does it work? The GMT hand now stands out with its large red triangle which is perfectly visible both day and night. Spinning around the dial in 24 hours, this fourth hand displays a second time zone (or the local time on a 24-hour scale). For the first time, the iconic square shape is completed with a bi-directional bezel. The BR 03 case was specifically modified to welcome this new functional bezel. It enables the reading of the second time zone, but it can also show a third time zone. Rotating it clockwise subtracts hours and anti-clockwise adds hours. The bezel - which borrows the same colour combination as the dial - is equipped with a 24-hour scale graduation. Bell & Ross has opted for Black & Red-hot hues. Red is known for its frank, clear and dynamic properties. While the red section indicates daytime, the black backgrounds nighttime. Thus, the two-tone bezel provides a visual contrast / effect for discerning time reading and is made of anodized aluminum.
