ell & Ross has developed Diver Bronze timepieces that are in-keeping with the marine depth. After releasing a black version in 2018, a green version in 2019, and a blue one last year, the brand is now completing its shade card with red.
Its case and bezel are made of satin-polished CuSn8 Bronze, an alloy combining 92% Copper and 8% Tin, that is deeply linked to diving history as it was used in the past for deep-sea helmets and naval construction. Adorning hints of pink, the bronze will age well. The patina will emphasize the authentic and unique character of this Diver watch, much-loved by collectors.
Anodised red for the bezel, red lacquer for the dial and a reddish-brown strap: the three shades work in perfect harmony and feature a high-quality finish. As on previous versions, all the metal parts of the case are made from bronze except the case-back, which is made from stainless steel, and the anodised aluminium bezel ring.
Available in a limited edition of 999, the BR 03-92 Diver Red Bronze sports the watch’s emblem, a deep-sea diver’s helmet that is engraved on the case-back. The timepiece meets all the standards for diving watches set by the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry, ISO 6425. Water-resistant to 300 metres, it is ready to conquer the depths of the ocean.
The matte brown leather strap and beige stitching confirms the watch’s authentic vintage spirit but can be replaced with a rubber strap for use while diving.
