With colourful designer Silberstein, Bruno Belamich and Carlos Rosillo have created a trilogy of timepieces based on the iconic BR 03, inspired by aviation cockpit instruments. The new Grail Watch Alain Silberstein x Bell & Ross Trilogy consists of a BR 03 time-only model with date, a BR 03 diving watch and a BR 03 chronograph.
Three watches that tell a story about shared passions, people and, above all, the essence of design. Each watch will be made in numbered examples, with the first 50 sold as an exclusive boxed set. We look at the first watch in this collection, the BR 03 time-only…
BELL & ROSS x ALAIN SILBERSTEIN BR 03-92 KLUB 22
The time-only model is the purest expression of the collaboration between Silberstein’s and Bell & Ross’ design philosophies. On a pure black ceramic case and jet-black dial, the hands transform from functional objects into massive oversized geometric forms evoking a sense of playfulness, optimism and humour.
A huge red circle describes the hours, an oversized blue arrow reads the minutes, while an S-shaped form in bold yellow indicates the passing of the seconds. The dial is interrupted only by the subtle date indicator. At the same time, the minute track is pure Bell & Ross, expressing the rugged instrument typography gleaned from cockpit instruments. Providing an additional jolt of visual energy, the four cardinal markers have also been turned primary yellow. The time-only watch features an automatic movement with a date function, the calibre BR.CAL-302.
Limited to only 200 pieces, this model is priced at $4 400 (R80 952.78 at the current Rand-Dollar exchange rate). It is exclusively sold at grailwatch.com. For further information, visit Bell & Ross’ website here.
