I like that flight instrument look.

People do not often say that this size is too big for them as they do with the BR01. Bell & Ross was amongst the first companies to offer an all-black watch. Dubbed the Phantom, the original BR-01 model was produced in limited numbers and sold out rather quickly. Now the BR-03 is available in limited production. This means that no more the 500 will be produced in any given year. Still relatively hard to get. I have worn this watch on several occasions and I would rank it in the top 3 most commented-on watches that i have ever worn. The funnest part was when asked what time it is. I just held up my wrist as if showing the person the time. His face was perplexed then intrigued as at first sight it seems that the watch does not display anything at all. Because the numbers and hands are so big, however, there is no problem reading the time if you are expecting the all-black dial. Furthermore, the hands and markers are photo-luminescent so they are very visible when the lights are off.

The reason why I recommend this watch is, in my opinion, pretty plain to see. Its a great looking watch! As all BR 01s its case is a 46mm square equipped with scratch resistant sapphire crystal, 100m water resistance, and the works. A few features that make this piece unique are the dark grey dial and rubber strap, the Big Date function, and the fact that only 500 of these watches will be manufactured world wide. The dark grey dial and black hour markers and hands are meant to evoke the stealth and camouflage of special forces units; hence the name Commando. the big date function, as its name suggests, offers a larger date display then the usual. This is thanks to having one disc for each unit working together mechanically to display the date. This is probably amongst the most useful mechanical watch complications, as it makes reading the date a lot easier without requiring a magnifying glass on the crystal.

The numbers are tinted as if they aged for 70 years, but instead are brand new and photo-luminescent. The strap is what most of my customers like the most, and for good reason. Its lightly tanned and the inscriptions, which are replicas of some of the engravings on the back of the case, are burnt into the leather. Really nice! Other aspects of the Heritage you should know about are that the case is a 46mm wide square and is just under 10mm thick, the watch is rated for water resistance up to 100 meters, and the design is based on the instruments from a 1940s aeroplane instrument panel.

  • Tough case, high-quality automatic Swiss movement and minimalist, slightly brutal styling.

  • I'm in love with this watch. It's not a Panerai, but then again: it is much, much cheaper...
