Form and function are blended perfectly on Bell & Ross’s new BR V2-93 GMT 24H watch, which displays the time in three time zones, making it ideal for frequent travelers. But beyond that function, we love the look: clean, sporty, and a watch that will only get better with age.
Its 41 mm round steel case is a characteristic of the Vintage series. Its revisited style is modern and sophisticated, with rounded lugs that perfectly adapt to the wrist. The case includes integrated protection for the screw-down crown. Lastly, the strap is available in two versions: Steel or black rubber. Personally, we prefer the steel, but we can see what the rubber would be attractive to some wearers.
Its black dial contrasts perfectly with the large white numerals. No surprise (considering the watch makers aviator heritage), it echoes the colors used for on-board flight instruments. Cockpits are dominated by black, which prevents reflections, and white, which guarantees optimal reading. Lastly, its hands boast a photoluminescent coating. That’s right, they glow. The GMT hand is accentuated with its orange arrow, which gives it a splash of color. And it’s 100m water resistant.
