The essential modern components that Bell & Ross has worked into the watch comprise the selection of rising minute increments for its Arabic hour mark, the pilot-watch-inspired hand setup now typical in the “Vintage” collection, and the date window, which could have worked better positioned at 3 o’clock, or even left off the dial completely, instead of concealed between other numerals. One of the most interesting contemporary features is in the dimensions of the crown– while many classic watches did have smaller tiles than those found on watches nowadays, the ratio of the event to crown around the BR V1-92 Military actually seems smaller and subtler than on those classic pieces. This design choice could have been to accentuate further the view’s historic inspirations, but it is certainly unusual for a timepiece evoking older versions to miniaturize, rather than expand, any elements.As previously mentioned, this view isn’t based on any particular version, but instead places its focus on bringing together many intriguing historical details to produce a modern yet vintage-appearing piece. Whether or not this sort of re-interpretation is desired or not is a question of personal taste, but on aesthetic worth alone the BR V1-92 Military is, to me, an intriguing watch. The item also represents, along with a number of other bits in the next generation of this brand’s “Vintage” collection, a growing interest by mainstream watchmakers to appeal to the expanding marketplace of retro-hungry consumers. It appears the trend is no longer restricted to long-established players like Omega and Longines, or startup independents such as Nezumi, but is expanding to all corners of the marketplace looking to ride this wave of horological nostalgia while it continues.
A decade ago Bell & Ross unveiled the BR 03-92 Phantom, an all-black wristwatch that perfectly captured the zeitgeist of the era, becoming an overnight bestseller. Now the French watchmaker revisits the same look, with a grey-on-black camouflage dial that is perhaps a nod to a motif popular in contemporary streetwear.
Like the recent BR 03-92 Horolum, the Black Camo has a sandwich dial: the upper camouflage disc has cut-outs for the hour numerals and markers, while the lower disc is covered in black Super-Luminova that glows in the dark. Because the luminous material is black, it has a dark glow rather than the typical green or blue illumination.
The BR 03-92 Black Camo has a 42mm by 42mm matte black ceramic case produced by G&F Chatelain, the high-end case maker that’s owned by Chanel, Bell & Ross’ parent company. As with other BR 03-92 watch cases, the perfectly aligned screws visible on the front are actually nuts that are secured by actual screws on the case back.
Inside is the automatic BR-CAL.302, which is the robust Sellita SW300.
