Back in 2017, Bell & Ross launched its very first square dive watch, and it was the BR 03-92 Diver. Reviews were mixed, and it was the firms first dive in the world of water watches, but i liked that timepiece, and i still do. I felt that the company managed to create a dive watch while at the same time manage to keep its own style, and have it be unique to Bell & Ross. So for those of us who like our watches done in black, and also are a fan of Bell & Ross, i have great news. There is a new dive watch being released, and its done in a full ceramic case. So lets talk about the new Bell & Ross 03-02 Diver.
Bell & Ross is a company that has always been brainy about colors and designs, and a great example of that is this new watch. The case is done in all black ceramic, as is the bezel. They are interspersed with white minute markings in the bezel and Superluminova for the hands and hour indices. The hour hands have orange Superluminova, and so it the depth rating done at the 6 o’clock position. This makes for a very legible watch that is also very impressive to look at. For my eyes, i think this watch looks great.
Black is one of my favorite colors for a watch, and i just love this scheme. The reason Bell & Ross can be a tough sell, is because their prices are hard to digest, given that they do not have the heritage of other dive watch brands, such as Tudor. However, for what it is worth, this watch is ISO 6425-certified. That should mean a lot, and you do not get there by using cheap materials and components.
So the watch is Diver Matte Black, has a 42 millimeter diameter, and is rated to 300 meters of depth. The watch is made of ceramic, and has a sapphire crystal. The watch is powered by the BR-CAL.302 movement, and has a frequency of 4 hz. The power reserve is 38 hours, and that strap is done in woven black rubber designed to last for years. Are there any other square dive watches out there? I cannot think of one. I beleive in this brand, and i think what they do is very competent. Their materials are high tech modern. They create looks that are ultra cool, and unique. So this watch coming in at $3,990 is a bit pricey i agree, but its also one of those times where i say i believe the watch is worth the price.
