The zest of the watch is its innovative display of hours, minutes, and small seconds based on concentrically oriented discs that provide a remarkably easy-to-read layout with strategically colored line segments. It will make you think of an aircraft radar with its hypnotic light beam.
The square case of the new Bell & Ross Radar watch is sculptured from 316L stainless steel and measures 46 mm in diameter. The metal surface of the case is provided with a black carbon coating. The case construction incorporates a screw-down comfortable-to-grip winding crown. It is 100-meter water-resistant.
The large dial is framed by a raised bezel affixed by four screws. The face of the Bell & Ross watch is protected by a scratch-resistant synthetic sapphire crystal.
The case of the Radar watch is coupled with a durable rubber strap fitted with a stainless steel tang buckle with black carbon finish.
The three staggered sectors progress from the dial edge to the center. The dial edge features the hour disc highlighted by a bright yellow segment, while the middle minutes disc is marked by a bright red index, and the center seconds disc performs rapid rotation featuring a fluorescent green segment.
The brand's watchmakers faced a challenge of creating discs that would perform smooth rotation, without requiring much power and without hurting the timekeeping accuracy. The specialists came up with a solution to use a special material characterized by ultra light weight and perfect natural lubricity. So far, the material is kept a secret. The sophisticated system of the discs is animated by the reliable ETA 2892 self-winding movement.
The Bell & Ross BR 01-92 Radar watch is to be unveiled at Baselworld 2010. It will be available in a limited number of 500 pieces.
