Remember the state-of-the-art Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Red Radar from 2011? You most probably would recall if you’re an aficionado of ultramodern, aviation-themed timepieces with an attention-grabbing pop of colour. Designed almost identical to an aircraft radar screen, the watch shows time through a peculiar disc display system.
This year, Bell & Ross unveils BR 03-92 Red Radar Ceramic that is striking and spectacular in equal measure. Revisiting the pioneering display of its predecessor with a more playful appearance, the time is shown through a carefully considered system of two rotating discs, with a passenger plane motif on the large outermost disc showing the hours and a fighter plane motif on the smaller disc showing the minutes. They are accompanied by an analogue seconds hand.
In essence, there are two levels on the display: the discs with the planes at the lower level and the hours scale printed on the inside of the bright red sapphire crystal. The fun design is reminiscent of a stylised toy, which gives the impression of two miniature planes gliding over the dial. Each component is masterfully assembled and fine-tuned by Bell & Ross in-house experts to ensure the precision of the watch movement will not be affected by friction.
Continuing its journey of superior innovation and performance, the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Red Radar Ceramic takes on the BR 03 42mm ceramic case, a high-tech material that is scratch-resistant in addition to a soft touch effect. Limited to 999 pieces, this is the third member of the Bell & Ross highly successful Radar family.
