Bell & Ross BR02 Dive Watch

Bell & Ross has announced two new BR02 dive watches that will be available for wrists everywhere starting August 2011.   Carrying a 1,000 meter water resistance rating, helium escape valve, and a unidirectional inner rotating bezel with a photoluminescent reference point, these BR02’s offer dive watch specs in a couple of distinct looks.  The movement is a standard, though reliable, Swiss automatic mechanical (ETA 2892).  The Bell & Ross BR02 Steel with carbon fiber dial is priced at $3,500, and the black PVD BR02 Phantom is $4,000.  Unfortunately I don’t see much here to get me excited — but how about you?  I think that Omega and others have more to offer dive watch enthusiasts who are buying here in the mid-to-higher end range.

    Hmm, it’s got some interesting lines from the case to the band. Honestly, I prefer a more classic aesthetic. While I think it’s great that B&R is trying to come up with innovative designs I find that they don’t always appeal to me personally. Also, it looks like you are limited in the band options.
