BR Desert Type

Military by nature

The Watch Quote™ - January 29th, 2016



The BR 03 Desert Type was designed to meet the specifications of air forces operating in warm countries. Therefore, it is sand-coloured, just like the outfits worn by pilots on desert missions.

An inherently professional instrument, the BR 03 Desert Type perfectly illustrates the four fundamental principles of Bell & Ross: legibility, functionality, precision and water resistance. Equipped with a chronograph function, this watch was specially designed for air pilots needing a tool to measure short time intervals. Its strap, which is available in beige leather or black ultra-resistant fabric, serves as a reminder of the practical purpose of this camouflage model.




A sophisticated design that enhances legibility

To adhere to the principles of aeronautical design, the case is black and the crystal features an anti-reflective coating. True to its continuous quest for excellence, Bell & Ross opted for ceramic in a black through-coloured shade for the case of its new chronograph. This innovative and high-tech material occupies pride of place in the production of pieces subjected to very high temperatures, acidic conditions, corrosion and erosion. Hypoallergenic and ultra-light, ceramic offers an exceptional feel and quickly adapts to body temperature for ultimate comfort.



The anti-reflective crystal is made of sapphire, a very tough material exhibiting tried-and-tested robustness. The four screws in the corners of the case evoke the aeronautical origins of the BR 01, using the front-mounting system of on board instruments featured in aircraft cockpits. These are functional and secure the bezel to the case, ensuring the watch is water-resistant to a depth of 100 metres.



Just like analogue aviation counters, the shape of the hands and the typography of the numerals guarantee total ease of reading. Meanwhile, the dial’s design is inspired by military techniques of marking for maximum legibility. Formed by two overlapping inserts, the beige upper section is cut away around the numerals and indices, revealing the black photoluminescent coating covering the lower insert. This black and sand-coloured contrast provides optimal reading of the dial during the daytime, as well as equally remarkable legibility at night thanks to its consistent and masterful photoluminescence.



Three versions presenting different features

To meet the requirements of the men working in the field, the new Desert Type is available in three versions, each with its own Swiss movement. On the 42 mm version, the three-hand BR 03-92 and the BR 03-94 chronograph present the large opening generally used for instrument watches. The 39 mm model presents the three-hand BR S for a version suited for smaller wrists, and also for women wishing to stand out from the crowd.

Although originally developed for fighter pilots on field operations, the Desert Type models will also delight lovers of characterful watches, as well as those who enjoy travelling to desert landscapes.
