Bell & Ross Introduces a New, Slimmer Phantom

2009 September 11

It's easy to see why the BR-01 Phantoms were so popular. Being amongst the first watches to offer black, luminescent hour markers is one of the reasons. The intrigue and conversation value that an all-black watch offers is another. Now, while other companies are still releasing all-black versions of their models, Bell & Ross takes a simple yet brilliant step onwards by designing an all-white Phantom watch.

Elegant Gold Watches Are Back... Well They Never Actually Left

2009 August 27

I have a theory that the average size of watches will not go back to the smaller diameters of five to ten years ago. Psychologically it is easier to get used to a larger watch then changing for a smaller one. For this reason we have become accustomed as a society to the current average diameter, which I estimate to be 44mm. However true my theory may or may not be, there is one category of watch that will always defy it. The elegant, gold watch has proven itself to be timeless with its recent resurgence in the catalogues of modern brands.

Bell & Ross BR-S White Ceramic Gold VS. Chanel J12 ref. H2180

2009 August 13

In the past year, the usage of ceramic has been greatly popularized by brands such as Chanel, Hublot, and Bell & Ross. Although its benefits were known to the watch world for many years, it is only recently that the general, watch-loving public has become appreciative of the material's qualities. Chanel has offered the J12 ceramic watch for many years now. Bell & Ross, while comparably a newcomer to the ceramic game, have slightly preceded the boom with the production of the BR-03 Ceramic. I have chosen to compare two popular models from Chanel and Bell And Ross in order to highlight the advantages and allure of ceramic on watches.
