A new Copper Brown watch from Bell & Ross will join the brand’s three-hand BR 05 family.
It revisits the famous square case with a round opening and screws at the four corners of the iconic BR 03 design.
Creative Director and Co-founder of Bell & Ross, Bruno Belamich, explained “You have to breathe life into a range. It can be achieved through technique (movement), materials, or details. For the BR 05 Copper Brown, we chose the colour.”
When presented in 2019, the 3-hand BR 05 range offered three different dial colours; black, silver grey and navy blue.
Today’s release is the brand 4th iteration, offering the watch in metallic brown with copper highlights.
As its name suggests, this watch is adorned with a golden-brown dial, enriched by a sunburst finishing which gives shine and a sense of preciousness recalling the light of the end of a summer’s day.
This colour was developed specifically for the BR 05, which is the only Bell & Ross watch to feature it.
Two main operations make it possible to obtain this tone and this particular depth:
– Machining: The sunburst effect is obtained by circular micro-engraving of the metal plate of the dial. This work gives all its luminosity to the colour which varies according to the inclination of the dial.
– Varnishing. Several coats of transparent varnish in brown are applied to the metal plate of the dial which gives its depth, and its uniqueness to the colour of the Copper Brown.
Mr Belamich recalls: “Brown is a colour that is increasingly in demand in watchmaking. It’s an easy-towear, stylish colour commonly found in the modern man’s wardrobe.
“The BR 05 Copper Brown is intended for elegant city dwellers looking for a chic, dressy, contemporary watch. Its mainstream light brown hue, which recalls the soft leather tints, is easy to wear every day.”
For a sportier feeling, the BR 05 Copper Brown is also available on rubber strap which comes in a colour, specifically developed for it, harmonising perfectly with the light brown of the dial.
This watch is powered by the in-house self-winding BR-CAL 321 calibre.
Bell & Ross’ BR 05 series has become increasingly diverse in recent months, introducing precious metals and additional complications to the collection. However, Bell & Ross haven’t forgotten about the steel, three-hand model at the core of the range, expanding it with a new dial option: the BR 05 Copper Brown. When the Bell & Ross BR 05 collection was first introduced, it added a simpler and more versatile interpretation to the aviation-themed, circle-in-square design that made the Parisian brand famous. The collection, which started with three-handed models, gained versions such as GMT and chronograph over time and developed in terms of color and material options. The newest member of the modern collection, on the other hand, has turned its eyes to the BR 05 product group again with its copper-toned dial.
As we march full into the autumn season and the leaves begin to fall, we’re enticed by pumpkin spiced lattes and urged to seek out sweaters to shield ourselves from breezy winds. But, for those that need an extra accessory to liven their outfits and keep them on time, Bell & Ross has released the brand new “BR 05 Copper Brown
