Bell & Ross Aeronavale Bronze BR V2-94 Limited Edition Review
Available in specialized stores from the end of April 2020, Bell & Ross Aeronavale Bronze BR V2-94 limited edition, a professional-inspired military-style chronograph that revisits the Vintage BR Aeronavale collection. Made in a limited edition of 999 pieces, it recalls in the color of the dial and strap the high uniform of the officers of the French National Navy, thus combining functionality and elegance. As always, the Bell & Ross designers for their dials are inspired by aeronautical instrumentation thus guaranteeing rigorous standards of reliability, running precision and readability of the hourly information: this is of course also the case for this chronograph whose blue ocean sun dial shows the “bi-compax” vintage 60s configuration, and therefore with double counter at 3 (the continuous seconds) and at 9 (the 30 chronograph minutes), luminescent hour and minute hands, central chronograph seconds and date at 4:30.
Navy blue soleil finish also for the anodized aluminum bezel that surrounds a domed sapphire crystal of the “glass box” type, and therefore higher than the norm, with anti-reflective treatment. The 41 mm / 1.61 inch case is in CuAI7Si2 stabilized satin bronze (guarantees up to 10 atmospheres of water resistance), which provides for a very high percentage of copper, 91%, combined with a 7% of aluminum and a 2% of silicon, with a predominant gold/yellow effect; the crown and pushers are screw; the case back is in “open” sapphire on the automatic winding movement BR-CAL301 on an ETA 2894-2 base which measures 28 mm / 1.10 inch in diameter and supports 37 jewels, 28,800 alternations per hour and 42 hours of driving range. Classic and elegant, the convex blue calfskin strap is equipped with a satin bronze folding clasp. The Bell & Ross Aeronavale Bronze BR V2-94 is available for € 4,900.
