Bell & Ross Instrument 2007: A New Colour Palette
Building on the success of the limited-edition series of Orange BR01 watches, at the Basel World watch fair next month Bell & Ross will present new colours, including the grey-on-black 'Phantom'.
Employed both in aviation and the submarine world as a visual aid, bright colours 'speak' to their respective professionals. Three new limited series variations of the super-oversize BR01 Instrument will be launched at Basel World, each utilising colour to the full.
The 'Blue' version is available as an automatic watch with three hands and an automatic chronograph - with complementary functions - equipped with a blue photo luminescent dial, produced in a limited series in a black case with a rubber or heavy-duty synthetic fabric strap.. PR .
Also available as a black-case chronometer and automatic watch is the 'Phantom', a design that takes its inspiration from stealth bombers, it's described as "subtle, yet never totally invisible...". With matte, anti-reflective black hands, a discreet photo luminescent coating enables readability day and night.
The last model is the 'Titanium Orange', an automatic 3-counter chronograph (hours, minutes, seconds) that features the bright orange hands set in a high performance titanium case with a sporty carbon fibre dial.
