One of the last new watches introduced during the 2021 edition of the Dubai Watch Week is a sleek, black ceramic version of the Bell & Ross BR03 92. The brand is known for its square-cased watches inspired by flight instruments, and this is no exception. Created in collaboration with Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, the Dubai-based retailer, this is the Bell & Ross BR03 92 UAE 50th Anniversary.

Bell & Ross introduced its iconic flight instrument design in 2005 with the BR01. While the inaugural model measured a massive 46mm by 46mm, the BR03 collection took the size down to a more wearable 42mm across. What hasn’t changed, though, is the squared design, circular bezel and dial, a strong focus on legibility and the four functional screws. Available in a range of materials from steel to gold, this new limited edition is presented in high-tech scratch-resistant ceramic.

What sets this Bell & Ross BR03 92 UAE 50th Anniversary apart from others is the dial. The galvanic black-gold dial has a sunray-brushed finish, giving it a very appealing shine under changing light. The dark ruthenium hour indices are satin finished and treated with grey Super-LumiNova, except the 10 o’clock index. This index is a 4N gold appliqué reading “50” in honour of the 50th anniversary of the United Arab Emirates. Black sword-shaped hands indicate time with grey luminous inserts. As with most watches in the collection, the BR03 92 UAE 50th Anniversary has a circular date window between 4 and 5 o’clock.

Hidden from view with a solid caseback with a unique inscription recalling 50 years of the UAE, is BR-CAL.302 which, in turn, is based on the Sellita SW300-1. This mechanical movement is wound automatically and runs at a frequency of 28,800vph. It delivers 38 hours of autonomy and indicates the hours, minutes, seconds and date.

The Bell & Ross BR03 92 UAE 50th Anniversary is worn on a signature B&R black rubber strap that tapers noticeably from case to buckle and has an embossed “BR”. It’s secured to the wrist with a black PVD-coated steel pin buckle. Limited to 50 pieces, the watch is available exclusively at Seddiqi in Dubai and costs AED 19,900 (approximately EUR 4,800 at the time of publication).
