Continuing to cooperate with the Alpine F1 racing team, Bell & Ross launches the limited edition BR 05 Chrono A523. The watch is cleverly decorated with the French flag and uses colors throughout. It also displays the Alpine logo as a counterpoint to the chronograph hands, with a finely graduated black dial created to optimize legibility. Adding to its functionality is the tachymeter scale on the flange.

“We designed a tool that serves the driver: an ally at all times,” explains Bruno Belamich, chief creative officer and co-founder of Bell & Ross.

The chronograph in the colors of the French F1 racing team has a modern diameter of 42mm and is capable of withstanding pressure up to 10 bar. Its square stainless steel case is distinguished by its exquisite finishing including polished and satin-finished surfaces.

Under the hood is the self-winding BR-CAL.326 movement with hours, minutes, small seconds at 9 o’clock and date display between 4 and 5 o’clock. Based on the Sellita SW-330, this chronograph movement has a 42-hour power reserve and can be admired through the sapphire crystal caseback.

Pricing for the Bell & Ross BR 05 Chrono A523 is rated at $6,700 for the calfskin strap and $7,200 for the stainless steel strap. This edition is limited to 500 pieces.
