Everything you need to know about the Bell & Ross BR V2 military timepieces
Since the very beginning, Bell & Ross has been inspired by flight instruments and military history in the creation of its timepieces. This brand-new trio of BR V2 military timepieces is no exception. The dials of these new aviation timepieces are highly legible in keeping with the functionality, precision, and reliability that is synonymous with the military world.
The Bell & Ross realms of expression
There are three versions to choose from that go with the three realms of the brand – Sea, Land, and Air. The sea version is the BRv2-93 GMT Blue, the land version is the BR V2-92 Military Green and the air version is the BR V2-94 Aéronavale Bronze. All three are powered by reliable Swiss automatic movements and come with “NATO Stretch” straps fitted with a closing system that uses parachute straps – a nice touch to the aviation theme. There is also the option for a stainless steel bracelet.
The BR V2-93 GMT Blue
The BR V2-93 GMT Blue indicates two time zones at the same time via its bold GMT hand that stands out with its bright-red arrow. The timepiece was designed for modern-day globetrotters who appreciate knowing the local time as well as the time back home. The timepiece comes in a 41mm stainless steel case with an integrated crown protector, a galvanic blue case back that features a sunray pattern, and a bi-directional rotating bezel in two-tone anodized aluminum (gray for day time and blue for night time). The dial and bezel are enhanced with a generous dose of photoluminescence for optimal reading in low light.
BR V2-92 Military Green
Paying tribute to military forces on the land, the BR V2-92 Military Green is a sport-chic civilian timepiece that respects some of the most important military specifications such as an anti-reflective matte khaki dial, a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal box, and green SuperLumiNova® for reading by day and night. The date is displayed in a window at 4:30 using a matching khaki disc, a nice touch to the military vibe.
BR V2-94 Aéronavale Bronze
The BR V2-94 is a limited edition of 999 pieces that celebrates the ceremonial uniform of French naval officers with its blue and bronze color scheme. This elegant chronograph comes in a 41mm bronze case that has been stabilized but will still change patina with time. In keeping with other chronographs from the brand’s Vintage series, the BR V2-94 Aéronavale Bronze is equipped with a fixed bezel in navy-blue aluminum and comes with bi-compax counters at three and nine o’clock, reinforcing its vintage feel.
