The Bell and Ross BR Instrument line is taking off. The simplicity of the cockpit style dial, the full sized and sporty feel, and limited production of the regular models, have been putting a smile on many collectors faces.

The new Limited Edition Bell & Ross BR01 94 Titanium Orange Instrument is living up to the successful run of the Bell & Ross BR01 Orange limited pieces of last year. The contrast of the orange hands on the stunning sheet of carbon fiber on the dial is going to make this even more desirable than its counter parts.

During a visit to Paris two weeks ago I was lucky to be invited to visit Bell & Ross at their communication offices in the storied centre of the city. Mr. Roberto Passariello and Ms. Axelle Rogan were very welcoming and showed me the new models in full detail. I filmed the meeting and will be posting the watch presentations of individual Bell & Ross watches in the coming days.

The Bell & Ross Br03 Ceramic Instrument is like wearing an espresso cup saucer on your wrist. They really give the whole Bell & Ross BR Instrument line a breath of fresh air. Same great quality you come to expect of the 42mm stainless and titanium Bell & Ross BR03 Instrument models, but with a summery light and funky touch for the woman or man that needs that flair.

Bell & Ross created a very strong buzz at Baselworld 2010 in March thanks to the multitude of great, new watches that they released. Amongst these are two BR 03, 42mm square Instruments based on the Heritage style that was introduced the year before. I wrote about the BR 03 Heritage models in a previous post on the Baily Blog, so I will not go into details here. A simple three-hand and a chronograph version are offered. Both are showcased in the video below.

Perhaps the most popular Bell & Ross watch last year was the BR 03-92 Phantom. To follow up that success, the company released the chronograph version of the 42mm Phantom this year. The name derives from the fact that these watches are theoretically invisible. All the elements including the hour markers and hands are jet black. If it were not for the slight relief and difference in textures of the components of the face, the time would be illegible during the day. Once the shock caused by the odd dial wears off, however, the time is rather clear. In the dark a bright contrast is offered by the highly luminescent markers, which glow with a strong, dark green light. This monochromatic style was developed by Bell & Ross as an homage to military stealth, but ironically works very well at attracting the gaze of curious watch enthusiasts.

The Bell & Ross BR03 51 GMT is the first Titanium watch in the BR03 line up, making it feel like you have nothing on your wrist. The Carbon Fiber dial contrasts perfectly with the white numerals and hands. What is most pleasing is the second time zone subsidiary dial with orange hour hand.

Bell & Ross has always moved forward as a company, but it has done so in small(ish), cautious steps. This has been a key to their success and contrasts other companies like Frank Muller for instance, who's quick growth troubled them and saw thousands of their watches sold "dumped" on the grey market. The BR Instrument was an primary player in Bell & Ross' climb to fame. When it first came out it was embraced by watch lovers despite its squareness, size, and ultra-sporty, military styling. Once the watch's acceptance was evident, Bell & Ross branched into other versions of the Instrument including the smaller BR-03. Some successful experimentation with the ceramic and the BR-03 92 frame, eventually led to the creation of the BR-S ceramics. The trifecta was complete. These three different Instruments cover all the bases in terms of satisfying fans of the square Bell & Ross watches.

Having seen it at Baselworld 2010 and not having the time to go back to the Bell & Ross booth to take a picture of it, I have been awaiting this moment impatiently. Finally Bell & Ross has released official images of this awesome little number, the BR 03-94 Phantom.
