Why this watch?

This watch can not only be worn in the office as a stylish and durable piece, but it can also be worn for more extreme situations such as becoming a daily wear perhaps whilst travelling for long periods of time. The stainless steel case and bracelet is sure to keep the watch intact and preserve that beautiful sun-brushed blue dial. The way Bell & Ross are creating multipurpose watches whilst keeping that element of luxury and complication in regard to the chronograph, is truly a testament of their values and mission towards creating exceptional timepieces.

The features included:

This Bell & Ross 05 automatic chronograph holds a Swiss-made calibre BR-CAL.301 automatic movement with 42-hour power reserve. As you can see this watch is a chronograph, featuring a 30-minute counter and a 60-minute counter with a central seconds chronograph hand. The satin-polished finish on the case goes hand in hand with the blue sun-brushed dial.

Something which sticks out for me is the crown guards which seamlessly blend into the rest of the case, yet have an important role, especially when thinking back to the idea and mission of Bell & Ross, which is to create military style watches. Lastly, this watch features a folding buckle-fastening satin-finished and polished stainless steel bracelet.
