Between the sky and earth: the New BR 05 GMT Sky Blue from Bell & Ross

The sky, with its vastness and beauty, has always been a profound source of inspiration for mankind. It represents endless possibilities, freedom, and a connection to something greater than ourselves. Bell & Ross, a renowned name in the world of horology, has embraced this celestial inspiration since its inception, infusing technicality and functionality from the world of aeronautics into their timepieces. The latest addition to their impressive collection is the BR 05 GMT Sky Blue, a watch that celebrates the harmonious union of the azure sky and the blue planet.

Duality lies at the core of the BR 05 GMT Sky Blue. Designed for both the adventurous globetrotter and the urban dweller, this timepiece effortlessly embodies a blend of sportiness and sophistication. Bell & Ross, known for their commitment to synthesis and unique design choices, has once again showcased their mastery with the “round within the square” aesthetic, demonstrating that opposites can indeed be complementary. The BR 05 GMT Sky Blue is a watch dedicated to experienced travelers and dreamers who long for distant horizons.

With its international vocation, the BR 05 GMT Sky Blue caters to the needs of contemporary globetrotters. It offers a clear and straightforward display of a second time zone through a fourth hand, allowing for easy tracking of time in different parts of the world. The 24-hour graduated inner bezel, adorned with a two-tone treatment in sky blue and silver, ensures optimal readability. The contrasting colors make it effortless to distinguish between day and night hours, ensuring accuracy when crossing time zones.

Bell & Ross watches are renowned not only for their style but also for their effectiveness in meeting professional demands. The BR 05 GMT Sky Blue is no exception. Super-LumiNova®-coated hands and rhodium-plated baton-shaped indexes ensure optimal readability even in low-light conditions. The rectangular date window at 3 o’clock, surrounded by metal, adds a touch of practicality and elegance to the dial.

Powering the BR 05 GMT Sky Blue is the self-winding mechanical Sellita movement, specifically the BR-CAL.325 calibre. Watchmaking enthusiasts will appreciate the sapphire caseback, which provides a glimpse into the intricate finishes and mesmerizing rotations of the oscillating weight. With a water resistance of up to 100 meters and a screw-down crown, this timepiece is versatile enough for daily wear, whether at the office or during your vacation.

Offering a duality of attachments, the BR 05 GMT Sky Blue provides two options for wear. The stainless-steel bracelet, seamlessly integrated into the 41 mm wide case, boasts satin finishes and articulated links, ensuring both comfort and contemporary design. Alternatively, the blue rubber strap perfectly matches the watch’s hue, further enhancing its bluish tones. This distinctive strap serves not only as an accessory but also as a style element, complete with a steel folding clasp for added comfort and security during your travels.

The BR 05 GMT Sky Blue is a timepiece that embodies the spirit of exploration and the allure of the skies. With its remarkable features, precise functionality, and striking aesthetics, it is a watch that seamlessly bridges the gap between the sky and the earth. Bell & Ross continues to push boundaries, crafting timepieces that resonate with the modern man’s thirst for adventure and style.
