Bell & Ross mens replica watches will once again offer up a few new “Aviation Instrument” themed collection of replica watches based on the BR 01 (BR01) case. I believe this is the third or fourth year of doing so and it began with pieces like the BR 01 Compass and then the BR 01 Radar replica watch.
The BR 01-92 Airspeed replica watch also uses an ETA 2892 automatic movement but retains the hands as they are normally. This is once again going to be a polarizing design, this is interesting because you get a very traditional aviation style dial that is colorful.
The dial features a sunray pattern, testament to the brand’s in-house expertise, characterised by tiny lines radiating outwards like sunbeams. The dial is coated in a blue-tinted varnish, which gives it an exceptional depth. The time display is easy to read indicated by two slim hands with a streamlined design.
What the GMT Carbon offers instead is a carbon dial in solid black, a 42 millimeter stainless steel case with black PVD coating to increase the stealthy nature of the replica watch, and also the dial now proudly states GMT just below the Bell & Ross logo at the 3 o’clock position.
This is extremely rare. As a traditional aviator’s replica watch you get an inner ring for the hours and an outer ring for the minutes – which is more logical as the hands touch the rings that they actually refer to.
