French watchmaking house Bell & Ross released their latest special locally today, and it comes in a rather striking orange hue.
As it is aptly called, the BR03-92 Orange Diver sees the classic BR03-92 Diver Black Steel square-cased dive watch design getting reduxed with the infusion of an eye-catching dial finished in said special tangerine hue.By the way, this was done not just for show either.
The combination of white, black and orange – which are coincidentally the symbolic colors of Bell & Ross too – meet the specific demands of professionals at both day and night, and will effectively assist divers under all circumstances. Moreover, this colour combination also reflects the visual code of maritime safety.
In more practical terms, orange is used to set objects apart from their surroundings as it guarantees optimal time reading. Maximum legibility is achieved in this timepiece thanks to metal applique indices coated in Super-LumiNova and skeletonised Super- LumiNova-filled hands, even in darkness.
At the core of things is B&R’s signature calibre BR-CAL.302 automatic mechanical movement that’s encased 42mm satin-finished polished steel case that boasts water resistance of up to 300 metres. It also comes neatly presented in a water-resistant professional box with two straps options included – rubber and fabric types.
Limited to just 250 pieces worldwide, the new Bell & Ross BR03-92 Orange Diver is, now available locally through select authorised boutiques, priced at RM16,000 apeice.
