The Bell & Ross BR 03-90
If you are looking for something that is a little more eccentric than our previous two suggestions, look no further than the Bell & Ross BR 03-90. Originally developed by two college students as a university project, Bell & Ross watches have become a staple staple for astronauts, pilots, deep sea divers and bomb disposal experts around the world. While the sophisticated square stainless steel case accented with an 18k rose gold bezel and crown may give the impress that this watch need special care, rest assured that it take a beating and keep on ticking.
The Bell & Ross BR 03-90 is powered by an automatic caliber 302 movement with a 42 hour power reserve (there is an indicator at 6 o’clock on the dial) and is water-resistant up to 100 meters. It also features an opaline dial with gold appliqué index and numerals as well as skeletonized hour and minute hands filled with superluminova (which glows in the dark). The timepiece is finished with a stamped calfskin strap and stain-polished steel pin buckle.
