Time frame: Bell & Ross take a new angle
Bell & Ross have become synonymous with a utilitarian aesthetic, infusing their aviation-inspired timepieces with flawless functionality. With the launch of the BR05 collection, Bell & Ross has changed course. Nodding to its predecessors with the ubiquitous juxtaposition of a square case with round face, design tweaks are otherwise softened. A new aesthetic presents a more streamlined silhouette; edges are rounded and, in a Seventies-inspired move, the bracelet is seamlessly integrated into the case. As geometry clashes, so does texture – smooth satin-finished surfaces jar with a polished bezel, an amalgamation that repeats down the steel bracelet to present a unified whole.
The satin-finished surfaces on the BR05 are perfectly flat
The dial of the BR05 is available in silver grey, navy blue or deep black
