Dark Night Pretender Bell & Ross Br 03-92 Black Camo Watch

In time, watchmaker Bell & Ross has become a benchmark brand in the field of special watches. Since its inception, the brand has continued to strive for superior performance and launched many extraordinary styles. In the constant search, the brand has established a close relationship with the military field-this has also become one of the key areas of brand focus. Bell & Ross often cooperates with professional elite forces, such as GIGN (French Gendarmerie Secret Service) and RAID (French National Police Special Intervention Team Black Panther Commando), whose tasks often depend on extremely strict time control.

   The professional military environment has been perfectly integrated into the Phantom concept proposed in 2007 and the Commando series released in 2009. This type of watch is inspired by aeronautical instrumentation and heralds the brand’s entry into new areas. The avant-garde watch design is the earliest watch using camouflage coating in the field of watch configuration.
   The new BR03-92 Black Camo (short for camouflage) represents another link in the Bell & Ross camouflage watch series.

The BR03-92 Black Camo complements the Bell & Ross Camouflage Watch Collection:
   During the First World War, the army applied the concept of camouflage for the first time. The purpose is to hide or disguise people or objects. Green khaki, brown, black, and gray are the most commonly used colors. These colors are matte due to military requirements.
1 / Phantom Monochrome Camouflage
   The Phantom, which is about to celebrate its tenth anniversary, is the iconic collection of Bell & Ross. In 2007, when the watch series went on the market, the public responded strongly and was one of the first watches to use the all-black military coating. The watch series is equipped with a uniform anti-reflective matte black paint, reminiscent of the surface of an invisible aircraft. Its numbers, time markers, and hands are fluorescent-coated to ensure legibility even at night.
2 / Commando two-color camouflage
   Two years after Phantom, in 2009, the Commando series came out. The watch series is also an avant-garde special watch with camouflage coating. The collection features a military-style two-tone coating. Its case, numerals and indexes are painted in deep matte black, while the dial is matte grey. This series is mainly targeted at the elite units of secret operations and the well-known military commando rapid reaction forces. Its equipment must be well concealed.
Black Camo Tricolor Camouflage:
   The new BR03-92 Black Camo is the latest addition to the successful collection of Bell & Ross camouflage watches. The brand has developed an original military tri-color coating for this watch collection. The dial is decorated with matte gray stitching, while the case and strap are matte black. High-tech applications make this watch almost undetectable, especially at night.
   In addition, its matte color design avoids reflections and reduces risk. This means that the watch can be worn during tracking missions or when operating in hostile terrain without the risk of detection.
   BR03-92 Black Camo retains all the technical characteristics of the brand. In particular, the hands, hour markers, and numbers are equipped with a fluorescent coating to ensure clear and easy to read day and night. During the mission, the elite forces must be able to grasp the time easily and accurately.

Superior technology level, efficient and convenient to use
   BR03-92 Black Camo has all the features of a fine watch. It is worth noting that it is equipped with a highly accurate Swiss automatic mechanical movement. In the window between 4 and 5 o’clock, there is a date function. The watch adopts the brand’s iconic design, the time display is beautiful and simple, and the large-sized numbers are matched with short stick-shaped hour markers to ensure legibility. The hand design is very unique: the minute hand is more slender, and the hour hand is wider to avoid confusion. Four large size numbers (3, 6, 9, 12) highlight design and dimensional characteristics, typical of Bell & Ross style.
   The BR03-92 Black Camo case is made of large-area colored ceramic. Ceramic is wear-resistant and stable, second only to diamond in hardness. Very high scratch resistance, tougher and lighter than steel. Therefore, excellent durability is ensured. This capability is indispensable for instruments required in hazardous military operations. Finally, ceramics have low allergenicity. Fever is mild and comfortable to wear even in hot weather.

   Sandwich dial with two overlapping panels. The lower panel is coated with black Superluminova®, with numerals and hour markers. The upper panel carries a camouflage pattern. Numbers and hour-markers are made of black Superluminova®. Excellent legibility, day or night.
   The new BR03-92 Black Camo forms the third link of the Bell & Ross camouflage watch series. The watch combines aerospace and military technology design, which is the core of the brand. The coating on this military watch is very modern, making it one of the most innovative timepieces of our time. For extreme professional situations and more routine adventure activities, the BR03-92 Black Camo is very suitable.
