Bell & Ross has been moving away from their famous “square” aviator watches for a while now and I love where they’re headed. Their latest, the BR V2-92 Orange and Full Lum, are lovely little 100M divers that look great and won’t break the back (much).
The Orange, as you might suspect, features an orange face with brightly lumed hands and numerals. The Full Lum features a lumed face and numbers that make the whole thing glow like an underwater sea beast.
From the release:
The new BR V2-92 FULL LUM from 2022 is the latest addition to this successful series. This 3-hand watch is not afraid of contrasts.
– It is timeless:
It features the Bell & Ross Vintage case with timeless rounded lines. It is equipped with the BR-CAL.302 calibre with resistant and precise automatic winding. It displays the hour, minutes and seconds by central hands and the date in an aperture.
– It is also unique and original:
It adopts the very contemporary FULL LUM finish. It stands out in particular for its completely luminescent dial in the dark.
The Full Lum is limited to 500 pieces and sells for $3,800.00. The Orange model ships in May and also costs $3,800. I’m going to whine a little and note that nearly $4,000 is a bit pricey for a three-hander but I’m also happy to drool over these guys, no problem. Either way, B&R hit it out of the park again.
