Hello, gorgeous. This beast – BR 03-92 from Bell & Ross – is a $4,500 full-lume diver that shines like a spotlight. The diver, encased in ceramic and connected to a rubber band, features a standard calibre BR-CAL.302. Automatic mechanical in a watch that looks amazing.
The watch also has a rotating bezel and date window, but you’re really buying this thing for the lume. The entire piece lights up, from the face to the pips to the tips of the hands. It’s truly striking.
From the release:
Playing with inverted contrasts, Bell & Ross adapts its Lum concept to its diving collection and reverses the traditional principles of day and night legibility. With the BR03-92 DIVER FULL LUM, the watchmaking brand also works with different shades of luminescence.
While its metal basis dial is fully coated with a paint made of green Superluminova? C5 pigments, the metal applique skeletonized indices and the bezel?s numerals are filled with green Superluminova? C3. This ultra-phosphorescent green light has a very long durability in the dark, offering a continued optimal reading of time even in complete darkness.
Thanks to this most resistant, intense, and innovative variant, the time indications ? that must be readable at 25 cm in the dark – create a green on green contrast on the dial.
The watch is shipping now and it’s available online as we speak. It’s in my cart but I don’t have the scratch for a monster like this one right now so it shall stay there until I don’t know when. Glug glug.
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.
