Bell & Ross drops the BR 5, an integrated-band beauty

With the BR 5, Bell & Ross is treading into some new territory. In what looks like the future of high-end watch design, this aviator looks like a cross between a Royal Oak and a Bulgari Octo.

The watch is “urban” themed which suggests a move away from the traditional air and sea themes to which previous models hewed. I think the real value here is in the unified, seamless design and the big, bold face that many already consider a B&R staple.

What watch is available online for a surprisingly tame $4,900. The piece doesn’t quite have enough bells and whistles for me but I could definitely see a GMT or chrono version on my wrist sometime soon.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
