Following a range of unique updates for its highly-flexible BR 03 range, French watch company Bell & Ross is turning to one of its more minimalistic models — the BR 05 — this time giving the otherwise simplistic timepiece more depth and texture.
To do so, the watchmaker has opted for a skeletonized interpretation, crafting a transparent blue dial providing a view into the intricate movement below, with parts also coated in a matching blue tone. White indices and hands come in their standard configuration with Super-LumiNova for greater legibility in dark conditions, all sitting neatly under an anti-reflective sapphire crystal. Internally, the watch is powered by the brand’s Sellita-based BR-CAL.322, an automatic movement operating at 28,800 vibrations per hour and holding a power reserve of 38 hours. Water resistance maxes out at 100 meters, and the timepiece comes with either a satin-polished integrated stainless steel bracelet or a blue ribbed rubber strap for a sportier look.
For those interested, the Bell & Ross BR 05 Skeleton Blue is now available over on the company’s website, limited to just 500 units made and going for $6,900 USD. Head over to learn more.
