At a time when technological advancement converges with artistic flair, Bell & Ross reinvents the horological canvas with its latest creation. The Bell & Ross BR 03 Cyber Rainbow, exclusively designed for the 2023 edition of Only Watch, seamlessly marries traditional craftsmanship with futuristic elements, setting a vibrant tone for the iconic BR03 series.
This masterpiece doesn’t merely tell time; it tells a story of innovation, passion, and audacity. The brand, renowned for its precise engineering and design ingenuity, transports us to a world where colors burst in a dance of luminosity, reflecting an almost ethereal quality.
“To wear the BR 03 Cyber Rainbow,” one might muse, “is to embrace both past traditions and visions of the future.”
The centerpiece of this timepiece, the full 3D skeleton movement, offers an intimate look into the beating heart of the watch. With an oscillating weight playing rhythm to its timekeeping, this piece exemplifies the finest in horological design. The watch’s bridges, composed of DLC micro-blasted metal, play host to pockets of vibrant varnish. This detailing ensures that every glance at the watch reminds the wearer of the meticulous hands that crafted it.
Yet, the wonder doesn’t stop there. The black DLC titanium case, a signature of Bell & Ross, gets a vivid uplift. Adorned with carefully curated colored varnished pieces, the case shimmers with a uniqueness that only true artisans can achieve. Echoing this pattern, the rubber strap – drenched in the soft embrace of colored varnish – unveils an arresting mosaic that comfortably clasps the wrist.
What powers this marvel, you ask? Tucked within its colorful confines is a caliber BR-CAL.383. A specially designed movement for this edition, it boasts a self-winding mechanism that promises an impressive 48-hour power reserve. And as one peers into the dial, the colored bridges dominate the landscape, casting a play of shadows and hues, encapsulating sheer sophistication.
The clear, engraved anti-reflective sapphire crystal not only serves as a guardian to the watch’s intricacies but also brandishes the brand’s logo and 12 indices. Coupled with micro-blasted metal hands suffused with white SLN, reading time becomes a moment of aesthetic pleasure.
Functionality remains paramount. The watch ensures that its beauty doesn’t deter its primary duty. It reliably ticks away hours and minutes and stands resilient against water, up to a depth of 50 meters. Encased within a 42 mm expanse, the watch asserts its presence without being overbearing.
The dial – a varnished skeleton – offers a tantalizing peek into the movement below. Faceted bridges shine brightly while the balance wheel at 6 o’clock provides a rhythmic pulse. Adding a touch of luminescence, the Super-LumiNova® filled hour and minute hands ensure clarity even in low-light conditions.
Securing this treasure to one’s wrist is a buckle, crafted in black micro-blasted titanium, echoing the watch’s resilient and elegant persona.
In this age, where wristwatches are more than mere timekeepers, the Bell & Ross BR 03 Cyber Rainbow stands out. It is not just a watch; it is a statement of individuality, an embodiment of the future, and a testament to the timeless craftsmanship of Bell & Ross. For those fortunate enough to witness it at Only Watch 2023, it offers a glimpse into the future of watchmaking—a future as bright and colorful as a rainbow.
