Bell & Ross has unveiled an all new diving watch featuring the brand's iconic square case: the BR 03-92 Diver, which is the first square diving watch created by Bell & Ross that offers water resistance to 300 metres.
Building on the strong links forged with the maritime world, Bell & Ross has unveiled an all new diving watch featuring the brand's iconic square case: the BR 03-92 Diver, the first square diving watch created by the brand that offers water resistance to 300 metres, and driven by a Swiss self-winding mechanical movement with proven robustness and accuracy.

The BR 03-92 Diver is the first square diving watch from Bell & Ross with a water resistance of 300 metres
With ergonomics perfectly designed for underwater use, the iconic Bell & Ross square case is equipped with a 60-minute calibrated uni-directional rotating bezel, whose luminescent dot at 12 o'clock is used to set time references, both on the surface and at depth.

The bezel, designed for professional use, allows immediate calculation of the time spent underwater. It is unidirectional (meaning it can only be rotated in one direction - in this case, anti-clockwise) to prevent the references from being lost. If it is moved accidentally, it automatically shortens the dive time to avoid any risk.

Screwed down to withstand the pressure at great depths, the crown of the BR 03-92 Diver is equipped with a guard that guarantees complete protection against impacts and optimal water resistance. The carefully designed crown is also fitted with a rubber insert for improved ergonomics.

With its sophisticated design and uncompromised functionality, the new Bell & Ross diving watch is protected by a steel exterior to withstand the rigors of underwater exploration. The case is reinforced with a very thick back (2.8mm on the BR 03-92 Diver, compared to 1.8mm on the BR 03-92 Steel), once again guaranteeing extreme water resistance. Invisible from the outside, yet crucial for its reliability, the case of the BR 03-92 Diver is also equipped with a soft iron cage to increase its resistance to magnetic fields.

A further guarantee of flawless water resistance, the sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating is an impressive 2.85mm thick, compared to the 1.5mm on the classic steel BR 03-92. The deep black dial features indices in skeletonised metal applique filled with white Superluminova® for enhanced legibility, thanks to the maximum contrast between the black of the dial and the white of the time indications. The hour hand is orange and the minute hand contains white Superluminova®, allowing them to be distinguished at a glance; the minute hand is also used to calculate the dive time. Finally, the second hand is also filled with white Superluminova® so that the watch's correct operation is clearly visible, even underwater.

The BR 03-92 Diver comes in a water-resistant PELICAN® box, and is available with two straps: the first is made from woven black rubber with a steel pin buckle. The second is in ultra-resilient black synthetic fabric, allowing the watch to be quickly and ergonomically adjusted over the suit thanks to a Velcro closure system. Both have been designed for professional underwater use and their style instantly evokes the ocean depths.
