Basel World Preview: Bell & Ross Introduces Three Vintage-Inspired BR V2 Watches

When Bell & Ross goes vintage, its design guidelines had a military quality, clearly dedicated to the practicality, design and function of tag heuer replica watches designed for important missions. These three new models in the BR V2 series are a tribute to military wristwatches for land, air and sea. All three are equipped with NATO elastic straps that are made using authentic parachute straps, while the GMT and Automatic are available with satin-polished steel bracelets. They are water resistant to 100m and feature vintage-style ultra-curved sapphire crystals. The cases size are 41mm-wide.  Bell & Ross
The BR V2-93 GMT Blue, a blue dial-up version of the GMT model introduced in 2018 that shows two time zones. The counterweight of the second hand is subtly styled in the shape of an aircraft, a nod to pilots and globetrotters for whom the GMT is an indispensable tool. The 24-hour scale is printed on a two-tone bezel, a signature feature of GMTs. This one is made of anodized aluminum, it’s gray during the day and blue at night. With the red arrow hand, tracking the second time zone is not wrong, as are the large, Super-LumiNova coated numerals on the dial. This focus on high legibility is a common feature in all Bell & Ross replica watches. The movement is the automatic BR-CAL.303, with the second time zone rapid setting feature and a date function. It costs $3,200 on strap and $3,500 on bracelet.
The BR V2-92 Military Green is characterized by a minimalist design, the basic principle of which is never give way to the superfluous. It pays tribute to soldiers on the ground who were the first one to use wristwatches as a fundamental tool for their missions. The 41mm dial makes for a large dial, with large, precise legibility numerals and hands, and the bright green color for highly readable, day or night. It recalls the khaki camouflage dials on military fake watches; even the background of the circular date window is khaki green. The dial is surrounded by a black bidirectional bezel for measuring short intervals. The movement is the automatic BR-CAL.302, with hours, minutes, seconds and dates. It sells for $2,990 on a strap and $3,300 on a steel bracelet.
The colors of the BR V2-94 Aéronavale Bronze recalls the blue and gold uniforms of French naval officers. The case is made of CuAl7Si2 bronze, consisting of 91% copper, 7% aluminum and 2% silicon, with a unique golden color. Over time, the color will change slightly, as it acquires a patina, which makes each one unique. In true vintage style, it is a bi-compax chronograph with screw push down and and a fixed aluminum bezel. The movement is the automatic BR-CAL.301 chronograph, with small seconds and 30 minutes totalizer as well as date window. Priced at $5,200, and limited to 999 pieces.
