French watch brand Bell & Ross is a proponent of unusual, yet sleek sports watches, confirming its success in the space with its most recent release: a cool silver-white colorway of its BR 05 GMT. The new launch, dubbed the BR 05 GMT White is an update to the original 2021 release of the watch, then in black. Expanding the brand’s urban interpretation of travel and time in the BR 05 collection, the sleek design is renewed in a light, versatile colorway.
Those interested in the new BR 05 GMT White will have the unique opportunity to see it in person at this year’s WatchTime New York 2022. The event is a three-day trade show and collector’s gathering dedicated to showcasing the most sought-after watch releases from the past year. The event will take place from October 21-23, with more than 30 participating watch brands joining together at Midtown Manhattan’s Gotham Hall. You can learn more and buy your tickets, here.
On the wrist, the BR 05 GMT White features a 41mm, rounded-corner square case that wears 11.07mm in height. The steel exterior is satin-finished and polished in an elevated contrast, with the option of a bracelet or strap seamlessly meeting the edge of the case for a classic integrated aesthetic. Four screws on its four bezel corners add another Bell & Ross visual signature to the steel reference, while a pair of crown guards add to its sporty appeal.
The silver opaline dial is at work underneath a sapphire crystal, with its clean style contrasted via two red accents in the GMT pointer and matching “GMT” script printed towards the center of the display. On the exterior edge of the dial, a 24-hour scale wraps around the configuration to assist in travel timekeeping. Applied indices and a matching handset both typical of Bell & Ross provide the standard local time alongside a date indicator at the 3 o’clock position.
Powering the watch is the automatic Bell & Ross caliber BR-CAL.325. The mechanism features a 42-hour power reserve and is water resistant up to 100 meters. The movement also makes it possible to change the timezone without disrupting the accuracy of the local time display via a quick setting of the GMT hand independent of the hour hand. All of the intricacies of the caliber, including a 360° oscillating weight are revealed through a sapphire caseback.
The Bell & Ross BR 05 GMT White is available for purchase now via the brand directly and from authorized retailers, with pricing marked at $5,000 on a rubber strap and $5,500 on a steel bracelet.
