Following the announcement of official watchmaking partnership between Bell & Ross and the Patrouille de France – one of the most prestigious acrobatic formations in the world – in 2021, the watchmaker has launched the first dedicated watch. Now, Bell & Ross continues its aerial adventure with the BR 03 Type A Patrouille de France. “Bell & Ross shares the same values of precision and performance as the pilots in this elite aerobatic unit,” says Bruno Belamich, the watchmaker’s co-founder and creative director.
The BR 03 Type A Patrouille de France chronograph features the square BR 03 case in steel, with a diameter of 42mm. Created for professional use, the watch is fitted with a quartz movement giving a dual analog and digital display. The high-drain battery offers 30 months of battery life. To provide the best possible readability even in intense situations, the hours and minutes are displayed with conventional hands, while the seconds are displayed on a digital screen. The bidirectional rotating bezel helps memorize time references.
Beyond time indications, the BR 03 Type A timepiece offers many additional functions that are useful in whatever the circumstance: 1/100th of a second chronograph with intermediate and additional time, countdown, alarm, date and dual time zone. The window at the top of the dial displays the abbreviation of the chosen function. The second window, positioned at the bottom of the dial, digitally displays the measurement. The various functions are selected by pressing the crown.
Bell & Ross will produce only 100 copies of the BR 03 Type A Patrouille de France timepiece. Each pilot in the unit will receive one of these emblematic watches.
