Bell & Ross - BR 01 Instrument de Marine

The new BR 01 Instrument de Marine model presented by Bell & Ross is inspired to the first marine instruments appeared in the 17th century for shipboard use. Serving as the time base for navigation, these played a key role in naval history.

Precise knowledge of the time enabled navigators to establish their longitude and thereby determine their position in the ocean.

At that time, ship’s clocks were housed inside square wooden cases. A round display within a square.

In a similar way, the round white lacquer dial with Roman numerals and blued steel hands of the BR 01 Instrument de Marine is framed by a 46 mm case in bronze, an alloy that brings to mind the brass used for the surrounds on the original ship’s clocks. To add a touch of elegance, the case is encircled by a band of Indian rosewood.

The case-back features titanium, a contemporary metal ideal for its lightness and anti-allergic properties.  The watch is water resistant to 100 metres / 330 feet.

The new model is powered by a hand-wound 3 Hz (21,600 vph) movement, the Unitas-based calibre BR-CAL.203, with a power reserve of 56 hours.

The price of the new Bell & Ross BR 01 Instrument de Marine (ref. BR01-CM-203) is Euro 7,900 / US$ 8,700.
