Bell & Ross is bringing a little blues to your overseas travel.

The new BR 05 GMT offers B&R’s traditional square face – worn down by time and care into something a bit less jarring – with a kick of blue. The face and rubber band are colored sky blue and the GMT hand, instead of the traditional bright red or orange, is now dipped in a bit of blue.

From the release:

A celestial and inspiring colour, natural as much as symbolic, contemporary with millennial roots, blue has a special significance because it is everywhere. Designed for traveling, it offers contemporary globetrotters a clear and simple display of a second time zone thanks to a fourth hand. The second is a blue rubber strap, perfectly matching the tint of the watch, reinforcing its bluish tone. More than just an accessory, this very distinctive and specific strap is also a style element.

The watch runs a Calibre BR-CAL.325. automatic movement. It’s 41 mm wide and water resistant to 100 meters thanks to a screw-down crown. An exhibition back displays the movement.

The watch is shipping now and costs $5,000 on the rubber strap and $5,500 on steel.
