Bell & Ross, one of my favorite manufacturers, has launched the new BR03-92-NIGHTLUM, a matte black watch with a load of lume that makes it one of the brightest watches you can buy.
The company is famous for its aviator watches styled to look like they came right out of a plane cockpit. This watch is no exception. Based on the standard BR03 model, it runs a calibre BR-CAL.302 automatic movement and is 43mm across. It comes with a grey-green calfskin and ultra-resilient black synthetic fabric band.
I truly love B&R. Although they go off the rails a bit in styling some of their limited editions, I think it’s one of the most unique and wearable big watches on the market. They don’t do the traditional Panerai trick of connecting their design to some mythical Italian frogmen nor do they stray far from what made them famous. They offer big, readable watches for people who love them some lume.
You can pick up your own for $3,800 right here and perhaps one day you’ll be stranded on a desert island flashing this thing at passing jets in the dark.
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.
