Being one of the most iconic brands in the watch industry with its cult BR Series, Bell & Ross did an amazing job with the release of BR 03-94 AEROGT and BR 03-92 AAEROGT. Let’s find out the reasons which made those timepieces different and special.
Actually we have announced the Baselworld 2016 novelties of the brand here but, we decided to arrange an exclusive review for the models BR 03-94 AEROGT and BR 03-92 AAEROGT.
“ Every year we come up with something new… This year, we needed a source for inspiration.. “ Says the president of Bell & Ross’s Design Team – Mr.Bruno Belamich. The brand created its own source of inspiration for the concept.
The brand focused on motorsports for 2016 and officially approved its interest by entering to an agreement for brand partnership with Renault F1 Team. A few of the concept car’s technical details are more than enough for anyone to understand the uniqueness of the car. Let me remind you once again; this is not a mass market car… It’s the one and only regarding the concept…
Engine: V8 Bi-Turbo
Transmission: Double clutch & 8 speed transmission
Performance: 0-100 acceleration is 2,9 s
Top speed 315 km/h
Material: Carbon and Aluminum Alloy
A watch which was inspired by a car like that will end up as unique as the vehicle itself.
The watch has been designed and produced after a year of hard work. As many watch enthusiasts will know or recall, Bell & Ross is famous with its signature square case design. Well, same case model is opted for the new models as well.
BR 03-94 AEROGT and BR 03-92 AAEROGT
Both two models are offered in 42mm cases made of stainless steel. WR100M rated watches feature a sapphire crystal with Bell & Ross inscription and logo engraving as the dial does not provide efficient space.
For a watch that inspired by the motorsports, the use of red accents is a clever decision. While both models sport red colored touches on the dial and strap, the BR 03-94 features a red chronograph feature.
The transparent engine bay of the car is successfully highlighted with the skeleton formed dial.
The BR 03-94 version features the automatic Caliber BR-CAL139. The watch allows the wearer to monitor the small second wheel at twelve o’clock position and it features a tachometric scale on the bezel. A big date wheel is located at the three o’clock position.
BR 03-92 AEROGT version houses the automatic BR-CAL318 movement.
I would like to talk about the strap design separately here. The strap is made of soft calf leather in black. In order to match the rest of the watch, the strap is granted with red accents and a brushed stainless steel pin buckle.
Both models are limited to 500 pieces only.
The new models BR 03-94 AEROGT and BR 03-92 AAEROGT which were created after a relatively longer R&Dresearch seem to be an exciting product line for Bell & Ross.
