Ever since the introduction of the BR 03-92 Diver in 2017, its first dive watch in the iconic square case shape, French watchmaker Bell & Ross has gone on to expand this popular model into an entire collection. This month, the brand announced the debut of the BR 03-92 Full Lum Limited Edition, the seventh reference added to this “Instrument” collection, here with a dial coated entirely in Super-LumiNova.
The new model represents the first use of Bell & Ross’s “Lum” technique, used on several pilot-inspired models and inspired by lights on airport runways, on its diving collection. The case measures 42 mm x 42 mm in diameter (and based off the brand’s 2019 model) 11 mm in height. The black ceramic case, which is water-resistant to 300 meters, is “shock-resistant” with “anti-magnetic protection,” two required features for all dive watches as per the ISO 6425 international standards established in 1996.
Circling the new timepiece’s inner edge is the rotating bezel with a unidirectional 60-minute scale to set dive times. The bezel’s numerals and the dial’s applied indices and skeletonized hands contain pigments of green Super-LumiNova C3, offering an additional layer of legibility to the “Full Lum” dial during daylight and nighttime.
The dial, protected by a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, glows an “ultra-phosphorescent green,” according to the brand, with its hours, minutes, and seconds hands joined by a small circular date window at 4:30. The movement inside the watch is the automatic caliber BR-Cal.302 (the same movement used in previous models of the BR 03-92 Diver) based on the Sellita SW 300.1, with a 38-hour power reserve.
The BR 03-92 Full Lum Limited Edition (999 pieces) comes mounted on a black rubber strap (also with the option of an ultra-resistant black synthetic canvas strap), with a black PVD-coated steel pin buckle, and is priced at $4,500. The BR03-92 Diver Full Lum is available now through Bell & Ross’ E-shop.
