Bell & Ross is known for creating innovative and excellent military watches for pilots and armed force members.

The amazing Bell and Ross BR05 automatic chronograph is no exception and offers an integrated bracelet while staying true to the classic signature design. Let’s explore it in detail and see what this watch has to offer.

What Does Bell & Ross BR05 Chrono Black Steel and Blue Steel Offer?

BR05 Chrono Black Steel and Blue Steel is not just like every other watch from Bell & Ross. It comes with large Arabic numerals at the quadrants, which are perfect for heightened legibility. Moreover, you will also get to see registers instead of markers, and this watch offers both rubber strap and integrated bracelet options to the owner. Let's see what else this watch has to offer.

The Basics

The BR05 watch comes with a stainless steel case offered in a diameter of 42 millimeters. In addition to this, you will have the option to choose from two different dial options; navy blue or jet black.

You will find the traditional Arabic markers for numbers, and you will also see applied indexes across the dial. You should know that this watch uses a super-luminova material as it's lume. The timepiece offers a water resistance of up to 100 meters, and it is dubbed as a “luxury sports watch”.


Bell & Ross utilizes quality movements to power its watches. Therefore, you can expect to see a powerful inner movement with the BR05 as well.

This bracelet comes with a highly tapered shape and offers a triple folding clasp for maximum adjust ability.
