The Bell & Ross BR 03-93 GMT Blue combines the classic design of the GMT watch with modern sophistication. The watch features a sunburst blue dial along with indices that are applied and rise above the dial. The numerals at the cardinal points are large and create a stunning effect. The hands follow the same template as the numerals, with large sword hands brushed steel and a crisp central crease. The additional GMT hand which gets a splash of red to help it stand out is quite pleasing to the eyes. The GMT’s bi-color bezel is anodized aluminum, which creates a vibrant blue color for 6 PM to 6 AM, and a faded gray for the other half. The date window floating in the lower right-hand side of the dial is also blue which adds a futuristic touch to the design.
The Bell & Ross BR 03-93 GMT Blue is powered by the Cal 303 movement, which in turn, uses the ETA 2893 as its base. This automatic caliber beats at 28,800bph, and gives 42 hours of power reserve. The normal time setting functions, hours and minutes, with hacking seconds are set from the second crown position, with date and independent GMT hand controlled from the first position of the push/pull crown. The bezel is bidirectional, with 24 precise clicks. The watch is water-resistant up to 100 meters and features a sapphire lens with an internal AR coating. The strap of the BR 03-93 GMT Blue is made from deep blue calf leather coupled with a black synthetic nylon material.
Bell & Ross have taken the familiar design elements from their more typical square cased watches and added glamourous finishes which elevate it into something more elegant. The finishing on the case of the BR 03-93 GMT is a combination of brushed flat surfaces with polished chamfers, which highlight the case construction. The watch is made for those who want a big and bold watch, which offers sophistication and a touch of elegance.
