I love Bell & Ross. This is a new piece from their Basel show. Fair enough. It’s blue. I think the Instrument series has pumped loads of creativity into a once-stagnant brand and even industry. It’s a cool fashion watch with enough gizmo chops to make it quite cool. But please, B&R — first the tourbillion now this? Let Glycine rock the crazy colors. Innovate, don’t “change things up.”

  1. If you don’t love this watch you are and old curmudgeon and will have no lifeforce soon so just keep yelling at the kids in your yard.

  2. if you use the phrase “terminate your lifeforce”, you are what is wrong with a certain segment of society.

  3. Where does anyone get the unmitigated gall to bash Bell & Ross? Sweet, creeping Jesus. Bell & Ross make hellacious, sexy watches. Yeah okay the Tourbillion, over the line conceptually– but this BR01 is their classic design with just a different color! I could (for sure!) live with it on my wrist! Dang, a Bell & Ross are you kidding me?

  4. I am wearing the B&R BR01-92 on my wrist right now, only the orange colour. Fantastic!

  5. I’m a big fan, and even though the br 01 is a bit big even for me (I’m 6’3″ and have an 8.5″ wrist), the 03 collection is simply stunning….

  6. LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT…I just put down a deposit and ordered one. Just the fact that it creates such a buzz (and haters) make me want it even more.
