Bell & Ross Ups Its Game With The New BR-X5

Perpetuating the aeronautical heritage of Bell & Ross and the visual signature of the “round within the square”, the BR X5 adds a new chapter to the history of the BR 05 collection.

This aeronautical heritage, a direct link between the past and the present, translates into the letter X, a symbol of secrecy, experimentation and the future. With the BR X5, this avant-garde piece makes its entry into the permanent collection.

A large sapphire crystal caseback allows you to contemplate the operation of this movement and in particular that of its personalised weight with a design inspired by a sports car rim.

In addition to the “all-steel” option, a rubber strap is offered to dress the watch in a more sporty style. Like the case, the latter is lightweight, resistant but also breathable. It is equipped with a secure folding clasp. The range consists of two steel models. They are both intended for active urbanites in search of the avant-garde. The version with a black dial perpetuates the identity of Bell & Ross instruments: a functional watch without compromising on style. The Ice Blue dial version asserts a more stylish and dressier side for modern men looking for a jewel of strength.

Each of these watches is available with a steel bracelet or a rubber strap.

The Bell & Ross BR-X5 is a powerful watch. No doubt about it, it has presence. It looks and feels technical, more daring and more rugged than before, which actually feels quite natural for the brand. Sure, it has lost a bit of the elegance of the BR-05 but retains a relatively wearable case.

 The new Bell & Ross BR-X5 Collection launches now as part of the permanent collection.
