Bell & Ross Is Playing with Inverted Contrasts

Bell & Ross just launched the BR03-92 Full Lum, an impressive timepiece, which fits perfectly into the manufacturers family of instrument watches with the objective of optimum readability. With the BR03-92 Full Lum, Bell & Ross is pursuing its concept by reversing the traditional principles of day/night legibility. The idea is to switch contrasts.
In the daylight, its modern lines underline the essential. The simple and uncluttered display of this timepiece meets with a graphic dial with clear digits. At night, its subtle shades turn into an explosion of light. The dial and the luminescent rubber bracelet illuminate like an aurora borealis.

On the BR03-92 Full Lum the attention is no longer focused on the numerals and indexes of the dial but on the dial itself. Indeed, its brass basis is coated with a paint made of Super-LumiNova C3 luminescent pigments, the most resistant, intense, and innovative variant. The ultra-phosphorescent green light has a very long durability in the dark, offering a continual reading of the hour even in complete darkness.
Its case is cut in a deep matte black color and its display remains perfectly legible day and night thanks to its hands, indexes and black numbers printed by transfer.
The dial bears the unmistakable Bell & Ross-design. It shows hours, minutes and seconds and at 4.30 the manufacturer wedged a small date window in, that leaves the face undisturbed.

The BR03-92 Full Lum is powered by an automatic calibre, the BR-CAL.302, which is based on the Sellita SW300-1. It is a highly reliable movement, working at a frequency of 28,800 beats per hour and providing a power reserve of 38 hours.
It lies in a black ceramic case with 42 mm in diameter and a water-resistance of 100 metres.

The new luminescent rubber bracelet is pioneering work by Bell & Ross. To obtain this innovative result, pigments were incorporated into the material, which will then be hot moulded and pressed.
The BR03-92 Full Lum is a limited edition of only 250 pieces.
