I love full black watch because they always give me a secure and tough feeling. Among all black watches manufactured by Swiss brands, the most popular are those diving and military watches. Actually besides Panerai, the most authentic military watch I think is Bell Ross, because it originally designed and manufactured watches for pilots. So after long years of serving for military pilots area, Bell Ross has accumulated a lot of watch-making skills to meet the special needs of the military and tried their best to make the most tough timepiece. Like this replica, not only its appearance could win the most hearts of military watch fans, it runs accurate like genuine.
Matte finished casing is square and measured to be 42mm*42mm, it is also 11mm thick, the four corners are fixed by screws, the big dial on the center is protected by sapphire crystal. On the black dial, all hour markers and printings are in white, especially the 6 and 12 numeral hour markers are in big size, which is very convenient for the wear to read time clearly. The small second hand is running on subdial at 3, the 9:00 subdial is for 30-min chronograph counter. The date window has a round opening at 4:30, small white date font in black background. The watch is replica Bell Ross BR 03-94, so its series name “BR03-94” is printed above the big 6.
Some people may not understand the two buttons besides the crown. Let me tell you their usage. The 2:00 pusher is for start and stop chronograph function, while the pusher at 4 is for reset chronograph. That means, when you press the 2:00 button, the central second hand on the dial will start to run, and it will stop when you press it again, if you want the hand back to 12 o’clock, you can press the 4:00 button.
From the case back, you could clearly know it is a military watch by reading these engravings such as “AVIATION TYPE MILITARY SPEC”. The nylon strap is also an icon to indicate its personality because most military watches use such watch band. By the way, the replica Bell Ross watch uses a quartz chronograph movement, which is imported Switzerland. That’s all, thanks for taking your time to read.
