THE NEW BR 05 GMT: TIME TO TAKE -OFF
For its first dual time zone model in its 05 range, Bell & Ross offers a more urban interpretation of travel and time. The dynamism of lounges and the joyful noise of the schedule board are the background of globe-trotters on the move. They will be landing in different capitals, connecting to different time zones, keeping multiple temporalities in mind: the road is that of the sky leading to new directions and life experiences.
FOR A MAN IN MOTION
Bell & Ross’ exceptional team of designers and specialists excels at creating the best watches for professionals and also very beautiful and unique timepieces for everyday urban life.

Its dual time makes it the perfect companion for the transitions between destinations. Its design goes beyond the rigor of the square, which has now succumbed to the perfection and purity of the circle and has agreed to accommodate its corners to this newfound rhythm. Its stylish urban edge reflects the energy and dynamics of the city and opens the heart to its daily marvels.

THE INTEGRATED DESIGN

The BR 05 is elegant, ergonomic, extremely comfortable, casual and formal at the same time.

Its optimal dimensions and stylish edge make it perfectly suited for urban dynamism. Thanks to its integrated design, comfort, performance and refined finishes, the BR 05 is a loyal ally for active lifestyle. Ultimate performance in an exciting timepiece.
THE BEAUTY OF OPALINE WHITE
“After testing quite a few different shades, we chose the most precious white”, explains the artistic director of Bell & Ross,” the choice fell on a metallic white, galvanised with a particular texture”. This metallic effect goes perfectly with the metal case. “This type of white is more valuable than painted whites. The tint has silver reflections, very slightly pearly. Its matt finish is both subtle and sophisticated”, adds the Director.
THE DUAL TIME: HERE & THERE
The BR 05 GMT is a combination of stainless and robust materials encasing the finest Swiss watchmaking mechanics. Equipped with an automatic caliber with GMT function, wound by a 360° oscillating weight, the new model reveals the beating heart of its movement through a sapphire glass case back. The dial of the BR05, radiating with a subtle sunray finish, offers optimum legibility. Its black color contrasts with the large numerals, indices and hands coated in white Super-LumiNova®. This colour scheme is ingrained in Bell & Ross’ DNA. It echoes the colours used for on-board flight instruments. Cockpits are dominated by black, which prevents reflections, and white, which guarantees optimal reading. Intended to inform the traveller with the utmost clarity and precision, its graphics are very elaborated and the display is as rigorous as those of airport clocks. Echoing the principles of airport signalling, the skeletonized hour and minute hands are made of metal appliques. The GMT hand can blend in perfectly with the BR 05 aesthetic and stands out here with its red arrow. White, black and red - symbolic colours of Bell & Ross - ensure perfect legibility both day and night. While the white hands on the main dial indicate the time at the wearer’s current location, the red arrow-hand on the 24-hour graduated inner bezel shows the time in his country of origin. To read time at a glance, the black semi-circle on the flange corresponds to the night-time hours, the grey semicircle to the daytime hours. To feature this 24h-scale and add the flange, the Bell & Ross creative studio worked on increasing the diameter of the dial and therefore the dimensions of the case.
