The aviation-inspired aesthetics and travel-friendly GMT functionality of the new Bell & Ross BR 03-93 GMT BLUE allows for dual time zone reading. In continuation of the brand’s voyager approach, the BR 03 collection highlights tool-watch aesthetics and pairs the timepieces with a functionality that suits professional lifestyles. The latest BR 03-093 models launched at the Watches and Wonders 2023 come equipped with the GMT function.
Tracing the history of GMT complications at Bell & Ross
It was the family of functional instruments at Bell & Ross which gave us the first GMT in the iconic BR 03 collection. Launched in 2007, this timepiece referenced as BR 03-51 GMT Titanium was constructed from high-performing, innovative materials – including a brushed titanium case and carbon fiber dial making it a fitting tool for professionals. Prioritizing legibility and easy function, the watch featured both a second-time zone and a large date display.
The BR 03-93 GMT model faced an update and redesign in 2021 to accentuate the functional nature of the watch. The watch’s modern aesthetics pay attention to the readability of the time zones. Telling the time in the dark was a result of the enhanced legibility of timekeeping expression, highlighted by the SLN White 10 X1 coating with green emission, the most effective luminescent color. A large red indicator triangle points to the second time zone, and the local time can be traced on the bidirectional, two-tone bezel, displaying the daytime and night-time hours on a 24-hour graduated scale.
