Bell & Ross has decked out its BR 03-92 Diver Bronze in a striking, limited-edition shade of red, rounding out an series of annual color drops dating back to 2018.

The eye-catching pairing follows a full bronze, black dial from 2018 which was followed with a green bezel and dial in 2019 and blue bezel/dial in 2020.

The hue is applied to the dial as a lacquer and on the solid bronze bezel as an anodised aluminum insert ring.

While bronze dive watches are a relatively new concept, the material is certainly authentic, having been used in boatbuilding for hundreds of years and, more pertinently, diving helmets since the 19th Century.

Bell & Ross uses a CuSn8 alloy, a mix of 92% copper and 8% tin, so the bronze watches it produces will develop a patina over time as opposed to, say, Tudor’s bronze watches, which have been stabilised with the addition of aluminum to the mix.

Bell & Ross’ 42mm BR 03-92 collection, which is rated water resistant to 300m, also shows how far manufacturing techniques and tolerances have come in the last few decades as square watch cases were historically difficult to make waterproof.

The watch is supplied with both reddish brown calfskin leather and black rubber straps with 999 pieces being made. Available now via Bell & Ross, the BR 03-92 Diver Red Bronze is priced £3,800 GBP ($5,268 USD).

Elsewhere in watches, De Bethune recreates the galaxy on a 4.5 billion year old dial.
