Previewing Bell & Ross BR-03 Desert Type

Bell & Ross, known for its military-influenced aviator-style watches, launches a new trio of them at the upcoming Baselworld 2016 watch fair: the Bell & Ross BR-03 Desert Type collection, with sand-colored camouflage motifs designed to meet the specifications of air forces operating in hot, arid, desert locales.

The cases of the BR-03 Desert Type models are made of through-colored matte black ceramic, a material prized for its resistance to high temperatures, acidity, corrosion, and erosion, as well as for its light weight, hypoallergenic qualities, and tendency to adapt to the wearer’s body temperature for comfort on the wrist (all important attributes, obviously, for the relatively few wearers of this watch who actually might find themselves stranded in hostile desert conditions). The crystals are made of nonreflective sapphire, and the bezel is secured to the square case by means of four functional screws at the corners — in a style reminiscent of the front-mounted on-board instrument panels in aircraft cockpits — which helps to ensure a water resistance of 100 meters.
