The desire to travel has never been more prominent, and Bell & Ross's new BR 05 GMT timepiece is the companion you'll want when intercontinental travel returns

With the newly launched vaccinated travel lane to Germany, many of us are brimming with excitement for intercontinental travel again. And there is no better companion to have on your wrist than Bell & Ross’s all-new BR 05 GMT automatic watch. With its alternation between curves and strong lines, the BR 05 GMT evokes an aesthetic that is both solid and supple: a companion that espouses the vigour of an urban explorer.

Elegant and ergonomic, the BR 05 GMT—the first timepiece in the BR 05 range to feature a dual time function—is the perfect on-the-go watch, especially as we land in different timezones; ready for our adventures abroad.

An iteration of the BR 05 range, this new timepiece maintains all the beloved aesthetics of its predecessors. Along with its new dual time function, it becomes a timepiece that encapsulates that intersection of urban explorer and globetrotter. 

Encased in a robust polished steel case accented with screws on the bezel, the BR 05 GMT draws you in with its dark watch face contrasted with large numerals and indices in white. Not forgetting, the use of Bell & Ross’s iconic red used for the GMT hand’s outline on a white arrow hand, this timepiece's watch face becomes even more reminiscent of onboard flight instruments.

From schedule boards to boarding gates, this timepiece's watch face embodies the elements of air travel. 



True to the Bell & Ross DNA, the BR 05 GMT belongs to a family of watches with an integrated bracelet. With a square steel case and a dial reflecting the brand’s signature logo, the bracelet fuses seamlessly to the robust and sleek case, creating a solid unified piece.

Thanks in part to the radius of curvature of its bracelet and perfect alignment of all its components, the BR 05 GMT affords a comfort befitting its stunning aesthetics. With articulated bevels connecting the links seamlessly, the timepiece provides exemplary flexibility, almost as much as its available counterpart, the ribbed black rubber strap.

Boasting a sleek and robust steel case and comfortable wear, this timepiece is assuredly made for the urbanite on the move.
