Unique among watch brands for uncommon case shapes, highly visible dials, and military-inspired designs across nearly every watch in their lineup, Bell & Ross boasts a distinctive look that can be identified at just a glance. Today’s piece, the BR02, checks all these boxes!
Right out of the gate, the first thing you’ll notice about the BR02 is the brilliantly orange dial features. Set against the otherwise stealthy design, the hazard-orange hour markers and hands are easily read. Take the plunge (up to 1000m) with this watch and see how it changes – divers know that as depth increases, the spectrum of visible colors degrades. First to go are the red and orange wavelengths meaning just 30 feet below the surface, the BR02’s orange accents change from a brilliant tangerine color to pure monochrome.
A compressor case includes an inner rotating bezel controlled by a 1 o’clock crown that makes dive-timing a cinch. The integrated black rubber strap looks and feels professional and is finished with a black PVD buckle.
