Colours have been in the minds of the creators of the BR 05 collection. Bruno Belamich, creative director and co-founder of Bell & Ross, says this is to “breathe life into a range through technique (movement), materials, or details.” Hence, the debut of the BR 05 Copper Brown. Previous iterations presented in the 2019 version of the 3-hand BR 05 came in black, silver and navy blue.

This unique shade in metallic brown with copper highlights is enriched with a sunburst finish reminiscent of the light at the end of a warm summer’s day. The beautiful sunburst effect is created by circular micro-engraving of the metal plate of the dial. After which, several coats of transparent varnish brown are applied to the plate to give depth to the Copper Brown shade.

“Brown is a colour that is increasingly in demand in watchmaking”, says Belamich. “It’s an easy-to-wear, stylish colour commonly found in the modern man’s wardrobe”, adds the designer. The BR 05 Copper Brown is intended for elegant city dwellers looking for a chic, dressy, contemporary watch. Its mainstream light brown hue, which recalls the soft leather tints, is easy to wear daily. Indeed, it is designed for city life and is an ideal companion for urban adventurers.

Style and functionality extend to the integrated bracelet that balances the 40mm case in steel and blends to create a single element. Those preferring a sportier look can opt for a rubber strap that comes in a colour that matches the milk-chocolate brown of the dial.

Some iconic design elements remain for the Bell & Ross fans, such as the easy-to-read dial with hands, indexes and numerals coated in super-luminova. This photo-luminescent coating guarantees optimal readability both day and night: creating a colour contrast with the brown of the dial. The date window is displayed at 3 o’clock while the sapphire caseback offers a view of the watch's inner workings that are powered by the in-house self-winding BR-CAL 321 calibre.
