The Bell & Ross BRV2-93GMT watch has a diameter of 41 mm and is made of frosted and polished stainless steel. It has a classic look. The black dial contrasts with the large white numbers, echoing the color scheme of the onboard flight instruments.

The numbers, hour markers, and minute hand are coated with Superluminova® fluorescent material. The top of the second time zone hand is decorated with orange. The date display window is set between 4 and 5 o’clock. The dial is simple and generous, and the overall style is clean and tough.
The screw-locked crown is sturdy and solid. The crown is engraved with the Bell & Ross brand’s ‘&’ logo. The crown is decorated with a non-slip texture to help the wearer accurately time.

At the same time, the watch is equipped with a frosted polished stainless steel bracelet and a black rubber strap, which can be freely selected and matched according to different scenes.
The most unique feature of the watch is the 24-hour bezel that can rotate in both directions. The BRV2-93GMT24H watch can display the time in three different time zones around the world. Three white hands show the hours, minutes, and seconds in one of the time zones. An orange hand rotating around the dial for 24 hours indicates the time in the second time zone. 24-hour scale on the two-way bezel. It can read the time in the second time zone, and it can also display the time in the third time zone. Turn the bezel clockwise to subtract the hour; turn it counterclockwise to increase the hour. With a 24-hour scale, the gray area indicates daylight time, and the black background indicates night.

As a tool watch, this watch respects the appearance and features a clean and fresh dial. Orange eye-catching hands and three-time function add even more convenience to travellers. The thinner watch case is comfortable and versatile for daily wear, and it is a men’s watch with excellent stability and accuracy. The price of the watch: 25400RMB. (Picture / text watch home Joshua)
