At that time, we had just experienced the brand’s 2019 novelty at the Bell&Ross replica booth at Baselworld. At that time, the general manager of Bell&Ross Asia, Tong (Tong), said: “We have another The series can be shown to you. But this is top secret and you cannot take pictures.”
Well, we are interested in colors. As journalists, we are used to embargoes, so this is not surprising. However, when these watches were introduced to us, they exercised great restraint, not to throw away our phones and take them away.
I personally find this watch very attractive. It perfectly blends retro and modern flavors, but still upholds the “square inner circle” of Bell & Ross DNA, and is equipped with the brand’s iconic exposed screws on the four corners. When I tried it on, the one-piece bracelet also looked great and felt comfortable on the wrist. However, what stands out to me most is how watches (especially those with grey dials) evoke the image of retro TV sets from the 1970s.
That being said, it is difficult to discuss BR 05 without speaking to the elephant in the room. Since its launch, BR 05 has been criticized for its design that is too similar to iconic sports watches of other brands. Personally, some of the comments are picky. Finally, we checked and no one obtained a patent for alternating satin and polished finishes. In fact, many watches use this contrast effect.
Then comes the bracelet. Opponents say it is similar to the link on Patek Philippe Nautilus. But wait, isn’t there a similar old-fashioned Omega? There are also bracelets on IWC Ingenieur and Girard-Perregaux Laureato.
Let’s take a look at Rolex, the grandfather of the Swiss brand, and its popular three-piece Oyster bracelet. I don’t even tell you how many other watch brands have proliferated this design. Why is this so? The simple answer is that it looks good and can be used as a bracelet. Therefore, the better question is, “Why not?”. cheap swiss watches
But back to BR05. Let’s not forget that it was inspired by the aesthetics of the 1970s, when the bracelet was du jour style. Bell & Ross co-founder and creative director Bruno Belamich said: “This type of design can be traced back to the 1970s. When handed over to Bell & Ross, it will produce striking modern style graphics.”
If there is one thing I would question, it is that the collection is a bit expensive.
Therefore, despite the steep price, the watch itself is smart, handsome, and (with a hollow version) actually very sexy. The steel option is suitable for use in the office and on weekends, while the drag style can completely shock the 18K rose gold style. In the final analysis, BR 05 is a very decent attempt to express your brand, and this series is not worthy of half the praise. After all, if you like fake watches for sale and they look good, then it doesn’t matter what the opponents think?
