The Best Bell & Ross Watches Ever

Luxurious, yet reliable and functional. Bell & Ross draws its inspiration from the military, astronauts, and deep-sea divers all over the world. Every watch shows off its stunning Swiss craftsmanship and creativity. Now, take a look at our favourite Bell & Ross watches ever.

Bell & Ross History

Albeit manufactured in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland–Bell & Ross was started in 1992 by the two Frenchmen, Carlos Rosillo (Ross) and Bruno Belamich (Bell). With a shared vision for designing and producing watches meant for professional use, the dynamic duo joined the watch industry through collaboration with Helmut Sinn–the owner of Sinn watches. Since then, their ideas have changed the horology world forever. 

BR 03-92 Diver Military

Bell & Ross has always had a strong adventurous spirit, and the BR 03-92 Diver Military is no exception. Part of the Diver collection, this model reaffirms the brand’s fun and functional approach. We’re always all for this beautiful olive hue, that pays homage to the military camouflaged look. 

The Diver Military watch is easy to read thanks to its photoluminescent coating. Made entirely from ceramic, this BR 03-92 is lightweight, high-performant, and virtually unscratchable. The technical and functional features of this diving watch echo a set of military specifications and meet the requirements defined by international standard ISO 6425. The watch satisfies three fundamental principles: water resistance, legibility and reliability.

BR 03-92 Phantom

Since its release in 2007, the BR 03 quickly became one of Bell & Ross’ best BR collections to date, even serving as the brand's flagship arguably. It is similar to the BR 01, however, the Phantom is smaller in size and more wearable. 

It has been dubbed the ‘Phantom’ for its monochromatic matte black aesthetic. However, the all-black look does not interfere with reading it as it is photo-luminescent clock hands. 

Additionally, this Phantom watch features the classic time-and-date BR03-92 design, featuring a 42mm x 42mm case shape, an aviation-inspired dial configuration, and workhorse automatic movement ensuring reliable and steady timekeeping.

BR 03-92 Bi-Compass

As its name suggests, the Bi-Compass looks like a vintage radio compass that will make you feel like you’re sitting in an aeroplane cockpit. If you look closely, you’ll notice that there is a missing hour hand. So, how do you tell the time? The disc in the middle is painted with a blue triangle. As time goes by, it rotates to tell which hour it is. Meanwhile, the middle circle features the indexes and numbers that are printed in the same gorgeous blue hue as the triangle. 

The outer level is an off-white colour, resembling a vintage military aircraft radio compass often used by the military. 

BR 05 Horolum

Both futuristic, yet charmingly vintage-looking, all while being very wearable on a day-to-day basis. 

While most luxury watches are made out of bead-blasted titanium, this Bell & Ross piece is created from bead-blasted steel. It is the second Horolum watch from the Bell & Ross collection–and it is a limited edition item. 

Its unique look and texture are inspired by the minerality of concrete and the stripping down of contemporary architecture. 

Where To Buy Bell & Ross Watches

More luxury watch collectors and newbie watch appreciators are opting for pre-owned luxury watches rather than brand new ones. Besides the price tag, the pre-owned market opens you up to a world of rare and limited edition watches that are no longer available in-store. Because Bell & Ross only uses the highest grade materials along with amazing Swiss craftsmanship skills, these luxury watches hold their value well and can last for many generations to come. Shop Luxity online or visit us at one of our three boutiques.
