Clearly, at the beginning of the year, Maison Bell & Ross seems to have some pleasant surprises for us! After introducing three new models for urban explorers last week, today we talked about the new BR 03-92 GRAY LUM.
It was in 2017 that the brand Bell and Ross, specialized in professional aviation watches, presented its LUM line with a first model called BR 03-92 HOROLUM. This was followed by two other watches; BR 03-92 NIGHTLUM, and more recently, BR 03-92 FULL LUM. LUM refers to light since the main attribute of these watches is to offer optimum readability of the time, day and night. This year, a fourth piece completes the collection: the BR 03-92 LUM GRAY.
Obviously, it is because of its exceptional reading qualities, in all conditions, that we will stop first. This performance is possible thanks to the application of a SuperLuminova C3 treatment that provides intense brightness and ultraphosphorescence to the elements to which it is applied. In fact, the light intensity index of this material is 100% and allows you to offer an ideal time reading, regardless of external conditions.
“The duration of the restitution of light in the hands, indexes and numbers is much greater than the other types of Superluminova commonly used in the market with unmatched maintenance of photoluminescence.”
In the round anthracite gray dial, the hour / minute hands, the cane indices and the voluminous quarter-hour numbers light up in a beautiful deep green and remind you of the landing strip lighting. They are completed with a discrete date window hosted between 4 and 5h.
For the rest, the BR 03-92 GRAY LUM is a contemporary style watch, with a very minimalist design. A precise and robust watch, decidedly masculine, perfectly adapted to the urban environment. It includes a square box with rounded edges, the iconic shape of the brand, with a screw in each corner. It measures 42 mm and is made of polished satin steel. Again, the rhythm refers to the on-board aeronautical instruments and the air universe in general. The strap is velvety gray-green calf leather and black ultra-resistant synthetic canvas, with satin polished steel buckle.
This watch works with a Swiss automatic mechanical movement BR-CAL.302. It is water resistant to 100 m (10 ATM).
The BR 03-92 GRAY LUM is available for sale on the brand’s website, in stores and at Bell & Ross retailers.
