Two new Bell & Ross BR V2-92 watches Bring new meaning to the phrase “look and see”. Although they achieve the feat in different ways, the BR V2-92 Orange and the BR V2-92 Full Lume are both far and away head-turners: the former has a sunny dial color, and the latter completely Coated with lume. Excellent visibility even when it is dark.
The watches are limited-edition versions of Bell & Ross’s BR V2-92 model, which is part of the brand’s collection of vintage-style timepieces. Both the Orange and Full Lum features a 41mm stainless steel case with a grooved crown and prominent crown guard; The metal wears both satin and polished finishes. The dial displays the hours, minutes, and seconds with three hands, and a small circular date window rests between 4 and 5 o’clock. The date display itself wears the same color as the surrounding dial – a nice aesthetic touch that keeps the watch face from looking too cluttered.
Both watches have a bidirectional rotating bezel with a notched edge for good grip, and the dial is capped with a domed sapphire crystal. Flip them over, and the see-through case back gives a view of the internal mechanics. They’re also water resistant to 100 meters, so they have great durability for everyday wear, even if your daily routine includes a dip in the pool.
The full length model is all about better visibility in low light. It achieves that goal thanks to a fully lumed dial, a feature that Bell & Ross first rolled out in its lineup in 2019. The BR V2-92 is the fourth watch to receive this treatment. The dial has a unique “water green” lume color; The hand and index are adorned with a pale yellow Super-LumiNova. In the daytime, the color of the watch is light green, but the real show begins after dark. In low light, the entire watch face glows blue, and the hands and indices glow light green.
The BR V2-92 orange may not light up at night like its lumed brother, but it will certainly catch your eye during the day. As the name implies, the big draw with this limited-run model is the bright dial color, which Bell & Ross initially released in 2020 on its BR 03-92 Diver Orange timepiece. While this is not a dive watch, the color suits the BR V2-92 well, and gives an eye-catching pop to this vintage model. You can pair it with a rubber strap with a braided pattern or a steel bracelet – to give this watch a slightly more edgy look.
Both watches are powered by Bell & Ross’s BR-CAL.302 automatic movement for consistent timekeeping.
