    Bell & Ross appreciation

    Took me a while to get my head round the aesthetic and decide to get one, but this watch gives me great joy. Thatís it, thatís the post.

    Good stuff, lovely watch and a brand worthy of enthusiasm. Though Iíd dispute the definite article of a B&R aesthetic. They do some cracking non-square watches too :)

    I love the brand, unmistakably French and following their own path without apologising for it. This is my only one now, and itís a wonderful watch. It always triggers delight when I wear it, which is best reason to own any watch.






    Some other now gone, but very fondly remembered

    I like B&R but always found the BR02 and Demineur more attractive than the square BR03.

    I really like B&R, and despite having considered purchasing several over the years, I still only have the one, the heritage PVD 123 in what i like to term the "Caramac" colours.

    I tried on a blue dial BR05 a few years ago and fell in love with it. Ended up getting a speedy which I've now sold, wish I'd stuck with the B&R

    I'd wanted a Nightlum for ages but got tempted by this in the Jura sale



    I never bonded and flipped it in short order.

    Soon after a Nightlum came up on SC & I really like it.

    Wanted - Damasko DA38 or DC82 Green - not the black versions.

    I really wish I had bought that one you listed on SC- great price and looks great.

    I had a BR03-92 , sold it a while back and will add another one back one day. The are great watches , found them really comfortable too.

    I liked my B&R until I had to deal with their service centres. My hudromax came back with a scratched glass, sent back to be resolved and that took another 5 months!

    Sent my BR01-44 Titanium off and the balance weightcame back making more noise than it went awat with. The response was 'they do that'.....


    Would never touch them again!

    Never owned a B&R in 30 years of watch collecting, then I found this and fell in love.
    The ex display price was the clincher for me!

    The other night a Bell and Ross Space chrono (the first one, a Sinn 142 branded for B&R) sold on Ebay for just under a grand. It needed a service, but that is a lot of watch for the money.
    Anyone here get it?

    I have this one and Andyís heritage stainless steel BR03-92. Great watches and a bit like Panerai for strap choice.
