Bell & Ross is Ready For Takeoff With GMT Pilot Watch
The color scheme and oversized numerals are inspired by cockpit instruments.
Luxury Swiss watchmaker Bell & Ross was founded with a passion for aviation, so it’s refocusing the signature GMT Instrument with an emphasis on in-flight readability for 2021.
For the first time, the familiar 42mm steel square case in red and black features a bi-directional rotating bezel with a 24-hour scale.
Inside the new BR 03-93 GMT, oversized photoluminescent numerals and indexes pop with contrast against the black sunray dial and orange-accented GMT hand, echoing the colors of instruments found in aircraft cockpits. The timepiece is offered with two straps made of black calfskin leather and black synthetic fabric, respectively.
The BR-CAL.303 automatic mechanical movement provides hours, minutes, central seconds and a 24-hour clock in thee different time zones. The movement, case and airtight sapphire crystal are rated for 100 meters of water resistance.
Even in photos, the BR 03-93 appears easy to read, especially when compared with 2020’s BR 03-92 White Camo edition, which sported a wintry pattern that could be characterized as a bit busy.
Priced at $4,200, the BR 03-93 GMT is available to purchase on Bell and Ross’ website now.
