Bell & Ross Aviation Carbon Fiber Phantom Collection
If you’re a fan of the stealthy, murdered-out timepiece trend, Bell & Ross have exactly what you’re looking for, adding two new enticing carbon fiber variations to their highly decorated BR 01 Aviation series of watches. While the use of carbon fiber is no stranger to this impressive line, the black-on-black detailing between the large 46mm case, and the dial and hands most definitely is, resulting in the ‘Phantom’ delineation. Right down to the unique rubber and carbon fiber stitched band, the Phantom is clearly inspired by B-117 stealth fighters with their striking ‘hidden in plain view’ aesthetic.
Both iterations of the watch come with all the standard features of any luxury watch (automatic Swiss mechanical movement, 100m water resistance, screw-down crown, photo-luminescent hands, sapphire crystal glass), except of course for the gratuitous carbon fiber exotica. The BR01-94 chrono retails for $9,900 USD here, while it’s standard-dial BR01-92 brother is $8000 USD, and can be purchased here.
