Well, if you happen to be driving an Infiniti, that is – and you happen to be one of a fortunate 200 people. Bell & Ross have introduced a new 44 mm timepiece in the form of the BR02-8 Carbon Case Purple 8 Pro Dial. The tie to the Infiniti brand is slightly tenuous, in my opinion. Per the information I could find, it’s in the form of the purple hue found on the second hand and at the 8 o’clock position. Apparently, that’s the same hue as is used in the LED backlighting on current Infiniti models.
Those adjustments aside, it is a striking piece. It seems very readable, and a somewhat understated piece. Something that could quite easily blend in in any environment. So, if you have an Infiniti and a spare five grand, this may be the piece for you to seek out!

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.
