Bell & Ross - BR V2-93 GMT 24H

by Bell & Ross - 15/05/2018

IT IS TIME TO TRAVEL
Since its creation, Bell & Ross has been passionate about aviation. The watches have always drawn inspiration from the design and technology of on-board flight instruments. Their design very often matches specifications created by professional users. The new BR V2-93 GMT 24H displays the time in three time zones. It is considered an indispensable tool for air pilots. It is also the ideal companion for globetrotters.

The contemporary design of the BR V2-93 GMT 24H places it at the heart of the modern era. This watch provides the time in three different locations around the world. It is therefore perfectly suited to the lifestyle of 21st century travellers. 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 “Tropic” rubber.

A PERFECT TRAVEL COMPANION
Its black dial contrasts with the large white numerals. This color scheme is ingrained in Bell & Ross’ DNA. It echoes the colors used for on-board flight instruments. Cockpits are in fact dominated by black, which prevents reflections, and white, which guarantees optimal reading. Lastly, its hands boast a photoluminescent coating. The GMT hand stands out with its orange arrow. White, black and orange, symbolic colors of Bell & Ross, ensure perfect legibility both day and night.

Its innovative functionality. With its bi-directional 24-hour scale bezel, the BR V2-93 GMT 24H displays the time in three global time zones. Classic GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) watches generally settle for two. How does it work? The three white hands display the hour (minutes and seconds) in one time zone. The orange hand that rotates around the dial in 24 hours shows a second time zone (or the local time on a 24-hour scale). The bi-directional bezel has a 24-hour scale. It enables reading of the second time zone but it can also display a third time zone. Rotating it clockwise subtracts hours and anti-clockwise adds hours. This is the first bi-colour piece created by Bell & Ross. With a 24-hour scale, the grey section indicates daytime, and the black background night-time.
