The elegant BR 05 Skeleton from Bell & Ross is back in a trendy green version

Flip the dial. The BR 05 Skeleton collection from Bell & Ross, which achieved great success with its fascinating watch mechanism, is back in an elegant and trendy green version.

First launched in 2019, the BR 05 Skeleton is a sporty-chic take on a classic Bell & Ross timepiece, and quickly established itself as the house’s second icon. This week, the Skeleton collection presents its fourth version, in a superb olive green.

Aircraft-inspired watches make up the majority of the Bell & Ross range. With the first launch of the BR 05, the brand had taken a step back from the tarmac and created a watch that has proven to be the best ally of urban explorers. The resulting Skeleton collection has since been a resounding success, with its open dial revealing its fascinating watch mechanism.

Putting its own twist on the iconic Bell & Ross design and its iconic feature – round within a square – the Skeleton collection offers more compact dimensions and angular lines. She abandons the pilot’s helmet for the stylish jacket and the sneakers of the trendy young city dweller.

True to its name, the skeleton working technique magnifies the mechanism of the BR 05 Skeleton watch by cutting out as much material as possible to reveal the essential. The transparent dial allows you to see the mechanism in operation. This watch exposes its mechanical heart: the BR-CAL-322 caliber, Swiss Made, with automatic winding. The cog driving it engages in a fascinating ballet, while the mechanism is covered in green-tinted glass.

Based on its predecessors, the BR 05 Skeleton is now adorned with green, a complementary color to the previous ones. After black, blue and grey, a deep and elegant olive green has certainly imposed itself. Neither too bright nor too dark, the green blends perfectly with the steel of the watch, both enhancing the material and magnifying it. The 40mm case of the BR 05 Skeleton Green is made entirely of steel. Its finishes alternate between polished and satin.

The BR 05 Skeleton Green is limited to 500 pieces. For more information, visit its official website here.
