Bell & Ross, which became a reference in aeronautical luxury watches, has something special with travel and time. And they prove it once again by launching their new Bell & Ross BR V2-93 GMT 24 H timepiece. At a glance, one can easily catch its subtitle mix of a sporty, chic look – vintage in style yet, highly contemporary.

Following the brand’s motto of “Form follows function,” its framework is dictated by its use, making it the perfect travel companion to pass through the clouds. It all makes sense when you know that Bell & Ross’ adventure started in a cockpit, with watch designs that were directly inspired by aviation. While the on-board instruments set the standard for legibility, precision, and reliability, the entire history of aeronautics serves as a powerful inspiration for the brand.

A GMT watch is without a doubt the most useful and indispensable tool for travelers and aviation professionals. Back in 2014 for the benefit of all, Bell & Ross presented a Vintage model sporting a dual timezone display. Today, the brand is going even further by releasing the Vintage BR V2-93 GMT 24 H. It is the first time Bell & Ross introduces the GMT function into its third Vintage generation. Adding an innovative feature, its black dial now provides the time in three different locations around the world. How does it work? Let’s plunge into details.

Three white hands stand for one timezone. An orange hand – which rotates around the dial – indicates a second timezone. The 24 H bidirectional bezel allows 3rd timezone reading and distinguishes the daytime in grey and nighttime in black. To show a different timezone, you will rotate the bezel – clockwise or anti-clockwise – according to the orange hand.

Resolutely modern and refined, the new BR V2-93 GMT 24 H can be worn either with a tropic rubber version, at $3,200 USD, or on a steel bracelet, for $3,500 USD. This 3rd time zone is the best function to add into the Vintage Collection. It is time to travel now!

    A sponsored post by Bell & Ross, interesting… Anyways, love the aesthetics and will probably end up on my wrist much sooner than later.

    • Boris N. Natasha

      yah, i don’t get it. a wonderfully thoughtful watch from a respectable brand has to pay for a post, but, next up, a swiss-army knife maker doesn’t have to pay for what i would describe as not a wonderfully thoughtful watch!

  • Love B&R and I think they are better priced than most of the stuff I’ve seen here lately. I could do with a different seconds’ hand but that’s my only quibble really

    • Joe

      I didn’t think I would like their non-square non-instrument style watches but it’s actually very nice.
      I like how thin the case seems to be, although I can’t find the dimensions even on their website.

      • Mikita

        Judging from my BR123, it must be really thin, but bear in mind – it has highly domed box shape sapphire. The case of my BR123 is only 9 mm thick (measured with caliper), but sapphire adds another 2-3 mm. Anyway, they wear very well, since the case is very flat and embraces the wrist perfectly. B&R put lots of attention to details.

  • $2600 on the grey market. Can’t think of a better value proposition on a Swiss-Made GMT at this point.

    Until the Tudor releases.

    • egznyc

      It depends what you mean by value proposition. There are cheaper Swiss made GMTs but they also look cheaper ;-). I do like some of the Hamilton Jazzmaster GMT models though.

      • I’m wearing a Hamilton Conservation GMT today, as a matter of fact, and I love the hell out of it, regardless of the fact that it cost a 4th of what the B&R does. So I suppose that contradicts my own point, but I’m going to go out on a limb and say the quality vis a vis finishing of B&R offerings is slightly higher than a Hammy. Not having ever owned a B&R, however, I can’t say for certain. But I’m willing to roll the dice on this, or their flyback heritage chrono.

        • egznyc

          By your own admission, let’s give it to Hamilton ;-). I am confident that B&R has better finishing, but is it worth an extra $2K+? Not to me, anyway. The Conservation GMT has a good, rugged look, although I rather like the Jazzmaster GMT designs (particularly the black dial with red GMT hand). A very good deal, in fact, for well under $1K. I just don’t know if I’d like it in the metal given it’s a little big for a dressier watch.

        • egznyc

          Nice! I wish the GMT hand were lumed, but c’est la vie.

  • LetoAtreides69

    Great looking watch reasonable price

  • Playboy Johnny – Team Marius.

    This is not square!

  • Playboy Johnny – Team Marius.

    This is hilarious. The comment section for the “Bausele Terra” watch was turned off. The watch owner was taking too much criticism from the posters.
    I guess he should have not been so quick to badger anyone that did not like his dirt filled watch.

    • BNABOD

      Well I do appreciate the guts to come here and present one’s creation but then you have got to be able to handle it. The thing is a disaster on all fronts and frankly he must be a case of someone staring at their own creation far too long without getting input from anyone else. I do feel kind of bad for the dude though …

      • Playboy Johnny – Team Marius.

        I agree.
        Who would not feel bad for him? The watch looks like a can of smashed as*holes!

    • Stuart MacKenzie
    • ILOW

      I was actually really willing to give the guy some genuine advice, but now comments are off, I don’t think it is deserved!

      This B&R is quite inoffensive. But, why would you?


    Always loved that B&R look. Much better than all the square models they pump out imho

  • Dakota Dennison

    I would like to see this in the Belly Tanker color combination as a GMT. That would be a sharp watch.

  • Benjamin Walters

    This body with the new BR diver face and hands pleeeeeease

  • Too thin…

  • Mikita
  • Frits van der Veer

    Can i give a big hand for the date orientation!
    The orientation (horizontal number) i would like to applaud. So many brands, Breitling to name one, do that “wrong” by having a the date tilted.(there is not even a name for, in my vocabulary).

  • G Street

    Who wrote this shit? It’s embarrassing.

  • SuperStrapper

    Interesting bracelet.

  • G Street

    Just so that I’m clear, the white hands tell the time, yes?
    The orange hand rotates around the dial in a novel manner to indicate another “time”?
    I’d just like to thank the author for such a splendid piece of writing and apologise for my earlier comment that was deleted by the diligent ABTW staff.

  • Properly sized, easy to read and classic if a bit “boring” looks. My kind of watch.

    • spiceballs

      Agree, one of the nicer B&R (simple) offerings, but no dimensions provided in the article?

      • The proportions in the pictures point towards a watch that’s sized more appropriately for stick wrists like mine.

  • Jon Heinz

    So the 24 hrs hand isn’t independently moveable a la the GMT-Master II? No matter. Shut up and take my money already. This thing is clean as f.

  • hatster

    Very easy on the eye, why not?

  • Ulysses31

    If they wanted to boost legibility even further, they could paint the dial with Vantablack.

  • john wood

    Was this article written in a foreign language and run through a translation app? Or is it just me
