Bell & Ross works regularly with professional elite units such as GIGN (Special Operations Unit of the French National Gendarmerie) and RAID (Search, Assistance, Intervention, Deterrence Unit of the French National Police Force), whose missions often depend on the strictest timing. The Phantom concept, launched in 2007, and the Commando collection of 2009, fit perfectly into the professional military milieu. The launch of these watches, which are inspired by aeronautical instrumentation, heralded a foray into new territory. These avant-garde timepieces were among the first to use a camouflage coating in a horological setting. The new BR03-92 Black Camo (short for camouflage) represents another link in the Bell & Ross camouflage watch series and completes the Bell & Ross camouflage family.
The new BR 03-92 Black Camo is the latest addition to the successful series of Bell & Ross camouflage watches. For this model, the brand has developed an original military-type tricolor coating. Its dial is covered with a patchwork of matte greys, its case and strap in matte black. This high-tech timepiece is practically undetectable, especially at night. Its matte-treated colors also avoid the risk of undesirable reflections. This means it can be worn during tailing missions or operations in hostile territory with no risk of detection.
The BR 03-92 Black Camo is driven by a highly accurate Swiss self-winding mechanical movement. It features a date function in a window between 4 and 5 o’clock. The beautiful and simple time display is based on the brand’s visual signature: large numerals accompanied by baton indices for perfect legibility.
The design of the hands is also very distinctive: slender for the minutes and broader for the hours, to avoid any risk of confusion. The four large numerals (3, 6, 9, 12), impressive in both design and size, are also a Bell & Ross classic.
The sandwich type dial is made up of two superposed inserts. The lower one has a black Superluminova® coating bearing the numerals and indices. The upper one carries the camouflage pattern. The die cutting for the numerals and indices reveals the black Superluminova®. This system guarantees impeccable legibility, both day and night.
