A touch of gold

Bell & Ross's circle-within-a-square model gets a gilded touch

Looking for a functional timepiece that can complement your lifestyle without stealing the show—yet is able to stand out discreetly on your wrist? The Bell & Ross BR 05 is made just for you, but this time around, the urban explorer's favourite watch gets a golden touch by way of an entirely new design. 

As you may already glean from its name, the Bell & Ross BR 05 Blue Gold is a royal stunner. The very apotheosis of “form meets function”, the BR 05 Blue Gold subtly stuns with the minutest of details—from its satin-finished and polished 18k rose gold 40mm case to the elegant navy blue sunray dial for a bold contrast.

Legibility is key when it comes to all of Bell & Ross's timepieces. The BR 05 Blue Gold's rose gold gilded applique numerals and indices, along with the 18k rose gold gilded skeletonised hour and minute hands are filled with Super-LumiNova for peak legibility. 

Sneak a peek at the 18k rose gold sapphire case back that unveils the BR-CAL.321. mechanism with a 360-degree oscillating weight. As with all the BR 05 models, the architectural construction is the first thing that catches your eye—an amalgamation of surfaces and angles that make for an ergonomic watch. The BR 05 Blue Gold has a hyper flexible bracelet (in satin-finished and polished 18k rose gold) and that follows the natural contour of the wrist. If you're feeling sporty, switch it up with a ribbed blue rubber strap for a versatile look.
