Bell and Ross BR 01 Carbon Fiber

        A brand with less than 2 decades of successful existence, Bell & Ross, was created by two enthusiast French designers – Carlos A. Rosillo and Bruno Belamich, who come up with revolutionary sophisticated timepieces defined by a remarkably audacious design and the upmost level of reliability.

        Initially designing watches for men who have to face, in their daily work, extreme situations, where accurate timing is equivalent with the thin line between life and death, such as bomb-disposal experts, professional divers or pilots, the brand’s creations soon entered the mass market, being extremely appreciated by the watch-connoisseurs worldwide.

        Recently, this young watchmaker created a new surprising timepiece entirely manufactured from carbon fiber, which confers stealth, sophisticated appeal to the watch’s components: case, bezel, dial and strap- the outstanding Bell & Ross BR Instrument 01 Carbon Fiber watch.

        The watch was created according the construction techniques used in the aeronautical field; its slightly oversized square case, measuring 46 mm in diameter, was manufactured from one single carbon-fiber layered block. The brand’s engineering team opted for this high-tech material for its remarkable strength and lightness. Moreover, the watch’s case features an ingenious architecture, which provides the ultimate reliability and resistance, furthermore enhanced by the bezel and upper plate with angle ribs that ensures an overall water resistance of 100-meters.

        The new BR Instrument 01 Carbon Fiber watch was manufactured in two variations: one animated by an automatic movement and the other variation equipped with an automatic chronograph movement, which also provides date function. Both versions were manufactured in a limited edition of 500 pieces.

        The watches feature dark carbon fiber dials fitted with white contrasting Arabic numeral hour markers, hour indices, and minutes and hours hands, which received luminescent coating, for optimal time-legibility in any light conditions. The chronograph variation also features three sub-dials, the 12-hours chronograph counter located at 6 o’clock position, the 30’-minutes, located at 9 o’clock and the 60 seconds, respectively located at 3 o’clock.

        Designed for a charismatic contemporary man, keen on revolutionary wristwatches characterized by bold daring design, and mechanical excellence, the eye-catching Instrument BR 01 Carbon Fiber watch comes coupled with a matching carbon fiber strap that enhances its fresh air of novelty, and it will be available for an approximate price ranging from $5,000.00 up to $8,000.00.
