Bell & Ross’ BR 05 series was launched with much fanfare in the autumn of 2019 and is positioned as the brand’s “urban explorer”. For the first time, the unique, slanted square case of the flagship BR 01 model was integrated into a metal bracelet. The most eye-catching in the new series is the Bell & Ross BR 05 Skeleton Blue replica Ref. BR05A-BLU-SKST/SRB. In this new limited edition of 500 pieces, the skeleton movement is dangled in bright blue.
The Case & Dial
The case of the replica Bell & Ross BR 05 Skeleton watch, with its softly angled corners, satin-finished flat surfaces and polished bevels, measures a relatively modest 40 mm — downsized from the hulking 46 mm of the BR 01 and the still stately 42 mm of the BR 03 (its predecessors in the Instrument collection), and only slightly larger than the smallest Instrument model, the 39-mm BR S. The integrated bracelet, designed and built specially for the replica Bell & Ross BR 05 models, has a polished surface on its soft rectangular center links and a satin-brushed one on its H-shaped outer links. The bracelet has been designed to curve easily and flexibly to accommodate a variety of wrist sizes, and fastens with a double-folding steel buckle. The latter element, with its two quick-release push-buttons, also boasts a combination of luxurious polishing and satin brushing on its surfaces, while Bell & Ross’s “ampersand-in-a-circle” logo emblem subtly serves as the locking mechanism.
Of course, the timepiece’s showcase element is its blue-tinted, translucent crystal dial with Super-LumiNova-filled hands and indices, behind which one can view the openworked movement, the BR-CAL.322. Both the watch and its movement represent a heretofore rare horological venture for replica Bell & Ross, which had previously reserved skeletonization for only its rarest and most high-end pieces, such as the BR X-2 Tourbillon. In this incarnation, the innovative 360-degree rotor, which is visible through a clear sapphire caseback embellished with a metallized logo, is also coated in blue. Exhibition casebacks are also relatively rare for the brand, and their use on all models is another element meant to set the BR 05 collection apart from its peers.
According to Bell & Ross CEO Carlos Rosillo, “In the car industry the engineering inside is even more important than what’s outside, which is why in a lot of sports cars you can see through the engine. This is an engine custom-made for Bell & Ross. And in watchmaking, the beauty of a skeleton is that you can show the sophistication of the movement without taking it off and looking through the back.”
A blue tinted sapphire crystal dial reveals the skeletonized BR Cal. 322 movement underneath. The blue transparent dial houses the applique indices and hands coated with Super-Luminova for optimum visibility.
The base Sellita movement has been heavily modified by the brand Bell & Ross has shaved off all excess material from the base Sellita SW300 movement to create the skeletonized movement it calls the BR Cal. 322. It is fitted with an open-worked blue tone rotor to showcase the transparency of the movement. The brand’s logo is metallized on the sapphire caseback. It is paired with an integrated steel bracelet (CHF6,800 + VAT)) or a blue rubber strap (CHF6,200 + VAT). This replica Bell & Ross blue watch is a limited edition of 500 pieces.
