A Punch of Light with the Bell & Ross BR03-92 Diver Full Lum

A Punch of Light with the Bell & Ross BR03-92 Diver Full Lum

The power of light is infinite — it stimulates sight, makes things visible, provides colours. It is also the entity that has been expressed in the Bell & Ross BR03-92 Diver Full Lum.

The moniker in the Bell & Ross BR03-92 Diver Full Lum describes the dial concept: luminescent material is extensively applied throughout the entire dial real estate.

However, the concept reverses the traditional principles of day and night legibility — the almond green dial remains muted under daylight but as darkness falls, it emits a punch of light.

Its relevance becomes more apparent as one goes diving — beneath the water surface where readability suffers, the constant glow relays precious information like time and elapsed dive duration to its owner.  

The eminence of Bell & Ross’s squared timepieces takes on new sets of characteristics as the brand continues to meld aviation codes into its marine themed BR03-92 Diver Full Lum.

Despite it being a dive watch, Bell & Ross’s roots in aviation still shines. Ceramic — a material native to aeronautics — is the chosen material for the Bell & Ross BR03-92 Diver Full Lum.

Its strength and lightness imparts confidence to its owner when put through the extremities of deep sea dive pressures. Another property of ceramic is its innate ability to resist corrosion.

All these, when put together, presents itself in the version of the Bell & Ross BR03-92 Diver Full Lum — to create professional tools that are legible, reliable, precise and functional to accompany its owner for all manners of adventure.
