BELL ROSS – BR S Grey Camouflage

To celebrate the BR01’s 10th anniversary since its launch in 2005, Parisian brand Bell & Ross has put a feminine twist on its star to create two new models: BR S Grey Camouflage. This is a lesson in how to glam up military style, soften and pare down camouflage and make a masculine icon into a feminine must. The grey taupe satin strap wraps around the 39mm square steel case with a round bezel available in steel or paved with 66 diamonds. Its mother-of-pearl dial is brought to life by a camouflage pattern gleaming in off-white, pearl grey and bronze green in the light. Two wide metal spear-shape hands rimmed with Super-Luminova® track the hours and minutes on the dial. The hour rim features large silver Arabic numerals for the quarters and applied baton indices or eight diamonds. The date appears in a black-on-white display at 4.30. Price: 1,900 CHF (steel) – 5,600 CHF (diamond and steel). Sharmila Bertin
