Bell & Ross BR 03-92 DIVER ORANGE

I think I might have unwittingly become a bit of a fan of the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Diver. Admittedly only coveting from afar thus far but maybe one day! 

Did you see their new FULL-LUM watch? Pretty damn nice, so is this Vitamin C-packed addition to BR 03-92 Diver, simply known as the BR 03-92 Diver Orange.

The watch will only be available from Bell & Ross’ boutiques and e-boutiques. It is a Limited Edition of 250 pieces. Special features of the watch include: a bright lifeboat orange dial which has been appointed with appliqué metal indices with Super-LumiNova inserts.

The dial also gets metal skeletonized Super-LumiNova-filled hands while the date wheel (found between 4 and 5hr) has been subtly finished in the same orange as the dial. Powering the watch is a Bell & Ross caliber BR-CAL.302 automatic mechanical movement with hours, minutes, seconds and date. The watch’s 42mm in diameter case is in satin-finished and polished Stainless steel. Water-resistance is 300 meters. It is fitted with a unidirectional rotating steel bezel with 60-minute scale and black anodized aluminum insert and a Sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating. Finally this watch comes with two straps: a woven black rubber and an ultra-resilient orange synthetic fabric. Both are with satin-finished and polished Stainless steel pin buckles. The new BR 03-92 Diver Orange Ref: BR0392-D-O-ST/SRB from Bell & Ross has an MSRP of approx. 4’240USD. Thoughts? This is such a GREAT looking diver – however I’m left scratching my head because it has an aluminum bezel inlay. 
 
Ceramic inlays aren’t expensive to produce these days and they hold up a million times better than aluminum ones do. 
 
No self-respecting diver’s watch should be using such outdated materials, especially when they have a contemporary design and are sold at this sort of price-point. What do you think?
