Welcoming yet another GMT with a dual-coloured bezel in 2018, we have Bell & Ross and their quite striking BR V2-93 GMT. However, compared to the other beverage-inspired combinations seen on a number of GMT watches launched this year, Bell & Ross decided to go with a rather subtle black and grey colour combination for theirs.
That’s not to say that the BR V2-93 GMT is dull, as it does offer a nice pop of colour with a bright orange 24h hand, along with all the classic design elements of the brand – BR V style case, large numerals at every quarter and the distinct pilot style hands.
The GMT watch is not new for Bell & Ross, already having one previous iteration of the BR V2-93 GMT and even one in the square case of the BR 03. But what is new for this watch is that it represents the first time that a dual-coloured bezel appears on one of their watches in the form of an anodised aluminium disc. Underneath the hood you’ll find the same BR-CAL.303 movement that powers the BR 03-93 GMT however for this timepiece the case is a round stainless steel one with a diameter of 41mm and offers a screw-down crown to boot.
As I mentioned earlier, the Bell & Ross BR V2-93 GMT already faces stiff competition from other GMT models launched prior; but where it carves a niche for itself is the fact that it comes in a slightly unorthodox colour combination. And it would probably appeal to fans of the brand who have already fallen in love with the unique styling of their watches and are looking to add a great travel watch to their collection.
