A super posh racing chronograph that can be seriously dressed up, thanks to the two-tone overall feel.
Some sport watches just manage to get along with a suit as well. And the new Bell & Ross BR V2-94 Bellytanker Bronze is just a perfect example for this statement. Coming in a 41-mm round case of a tricky bronze alloy and featuring a nice two-tone dial as well as domed sapphire crystal, it delivers a strong vintage vibe. The color scheme of black vs bronze works perfectly not only on the black dial with bronze counters, but on the bronze bezel with black anodised aluminium insert as well. The crown and pushers are screwed-down, and the piece has quite satisfying water-resistance of 100 meters.
The automatic BR-CAL.301 movement powers the central hours and minutes, central chronograph seconds, small seconds at 3, the date at 4:30, and a 30-minute chronograph timer at 9 o’clock. It is partially visible through the transparent caseback with a vintage race car image. The Bell & Ross BR V2-94 Bellytanker Bronze comes with a black calfskin leather strap. Total production will be limited to 999 pieces.
