Bell & Ross BR 05 GMT
Swiss watch brand Bell & Ross is known for its aviation and oceanic instruments and is most often associated with its easily identifiable BR series of cushion-cornered square cases with round inner dials. This look has contributed to the brand’s soaring success and is regularly reinterpreted. Such is the case with the all-new BR 05 GMT that just made its debut in September 2021. Powered by the automatic mechanical BR-Cal.325 movement, the watch offers hours, minutes, seconds, and a 24-hour time zone indicator for reading a second time. The GMT hand can be set independently from the hour hand and the two-color flange allows for day/night indication. The watch also boasts a date aperture at 3:00 and its markers, numerals, and hands are coated with Super-LumiNova for easy night reading. The 41mm stainless steel watch features a dark midnight dial and is finished with an integrated stainless steel bracelet. $5,400
Bell & Ross BR 03-94 A521 Alpine F1 Team
Transitioning beautifully onto land, the BR series of watches becomes ultra-sporty when paired with the world of automotive racing. This Automatic Chronograph 100 M watch is part of the brand’s Alpine F1 Team collection. Bell & Ross has partnered with the Renault F1 Team for more than five years and this year, to celebrate the Alpine brand, the racing team was renamed Alpine F1 Team. To celebrate that, and its role as official timekeeping partner of the team, Bell & Ross launches three watches, including this A521 (referencing the Alpine A521 single-seater race car). It boasts the blue, black, and white color codes of the team on the stopwatch hands and the rotating bezel. The 43mm stainless steel watch with a rubber strap offers chronograph functions, a tachymeter scale on the flange to measure speed, and date indication. Just 400 pieces will be made at $6,400.
