Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Desert Type

The clear and uncluttered dial in the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Horograph (above and below) is meant to evoke the look of clocks in airport terminals. Its micro-blasted, matte-finished stainless steel situation, in Bell & Ross’s classical “circle in a square” shape, measures 42 mm in diameter. The case’s gritty, gray-tone texture comes from a process of spraying tiny glass beads onto the metal’s surface to roughen it and impart a uniform, matte finish that is highly anti-reflective. The dial of your Horograph (in the Latin “Hora” for hour and “Graph” for graphics) provides a very legible black-and-white contrast; its baton-shaped hands and indices are coated with Super-LumiNova for greater nighttime legiblity. The bell ross vintage 123 contains the automatic BR-CAL.302 (based on the Sellita SW300-1), which powers the hours, minutes, and seconds display, along with a date indication at 4:30.
