The matte black ceramic is perfectly in tune with the aeronautical codes so crucial to the Bell & Ross philosophy. In the world of aeronautics, and especially space, ceramic is predominantly used in manufacturing parts that are subjected to very high temperatures, acid attacks, corrosion and erosion. As a result, it is found in products such as thermal shields and aerospace rocket’s noses.
As part of its on-going quest for excellence, Bell & Ross has reworked the high-tech ceramic and developed a special manufacturing process in its workshops. It enhances the intrinsic qualities of this material, which is virtually scratch-proof, pleasant to wear, soft to the touch and thermo-regulated, instantly reaching body temperature when worn. Almost as tough as a diamond, the high-tech ceramic developed by Bell & Ross is incredibly hardwearing, non-deformable, lighter than steel and hypoallergenic.
The matte black ceramic is reminiscent of the antireflective finish used on aircraft instrument panels. The sober design, black dial, large white numerals, shape of the hands and photoluminescent coating allow immediate reading of the time, in broad daylight as well in darkness.
This new ceramic model reaffirms the brand’s functional and utilitarian approach and emphasizes its pioneering vision. By introducing a high-tech material in its professional underwater instruments, Bell & Ross has created a new must-have tool-watch, and reinterprets the original values of the iconic BR 01.
