Remember the state-of-the-art Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Red Radar from 2011? You most probably would recall it if you’re a fan of ultramodern, aviation-themed timepieces with an attention-grabbing pop of colour. Designed almost identical to an aircraft radar screen, the watch showed time through a perculiar disc-display system.
This year, Bell & Ross unveils its BR 03-92 Red Radar Ceramic that is both striking and spectacular in equal measure. Revisiting the pioneering display of its predecessor with a more playful appearance (you can’t help but smile when you look at it), time is shown through a carefully-considered system of two rotating discs with a passenger plane motif on the large outermost disc showing the hours and a fighter plane motif on the smaller disc showing the minutes. They are accompanied with an analogue seconds hand that flits across its dial.

In essence, there are two levels on the BR 03-92 Red Radar Ceramic display — the discs with the planes at the lower level and the hours scale printed on the inside of the bright red sapphire crystal. This fun design is reminiscent of a stylised toy which gives the impression of two miniature planes gliding over the dial. Each component is masterfully assembled and fine-tuned by Bell & Ross in-house experts to ensure the precision of the watch movement will not be affected by friction.
Continuing its journey of superior innovation and performance, the Bell & Ross BR 03-92 Red Radar Ceramic takes on the BR 03 42mm ceramic case — a high-tech material that is scratch-resistant in addition to a soft touch effect. Limited to 999 pieces, this is the third member of the Bell & Ross highly-successful Radar family.
