This limited edition distinguishes itself from the others through its dial. With this new addition to the Diver collection, Bell & Ross pursues its aspiration by evoking the historical roots of underwater exploration. This nod to the origins of these adventures can be seen on the case-back, which bears the engraving of a 1940s diver. Working to the motto that simplicity never need hinder luxury, Bell & Ross’ engineers have managed to capture the spirit of the military watch with the legacy from the past. In total compliance with military and diving requirements, the monochromatic olive dial is perfectly readable night and day thanks to its gold-plated appliqué indices with Superluminova inserts.
Its case and bezel are made from bronze, a material that is deeply linked to diving history, that was used in the past for deep-sea helmets and naval construction, in fitting parts and propellers. Although inalterable, bronze forms a patina over time depending on its environment and gaining a unique shade over the years. As time passes, the metal provides its wearer with beautiful tones of reddish brown or greyish green, giving it a robust and distinctive touch, and making it unique. Bronze is the first alloy developed by mankind around 7,000 years ago. The specific alloy used for this new 42 mm timepiece is a satin-polished CuSn8, made of 92% copper and 8% tin. The khaki leather strap confirms the watch’s genuine vintage spirit but can be replaced with the included rubber strap to be used while diving.
Bell & Ross. In the beginning, a team of watch designers and aeronautical control panel specialists joined forces with one project in mind: to create timepieces perfectly suited for professional use. Their goal: to be part of the great Swiss watchmaking tradition while meeting the demands of men facing extreme situations.
