The Bell & Ross BR 05 Chrono Grey Steel & Gold is a bi-material timepiece that combines two metals, steel and rose gold. It was a new trend in the 1970s to mix sporty with chic, so steel with gold, and B&R uses this ongoing trend to pair it with a Havana colored dial. Which has the grey color tone of ruthenium, one of the Earth’s most scarce metals.

The case of this BR 05 is what you expect from this model: a square shape with rounded edges with a diameter of 42 millimeters. The case is steel, the screwed bezel rose gold. Other rose gold elements can be found on the dial and strap/bracelet.

The Bell & Ross BR 05 Chrono Grey Steel & Gold has a power reserve of 60 hours

This chronograph runs with the Bell & Ross caliber BR-CAL.326 with a power reserve of 60 hours. The movement is based on the automatic Sellita caliber SW-510. Apart from small seconds and a 30-minute counter it also shows the date between the 4 and 5 o’clock position.

The Bell & Ross BR 05 Chrono Grey Steel & Gold comes on a black rubber strap or a bi-color bracelet in steel and rose gold. Both with a steel folding buckle. The model with bracelet is about 50% more expensive. And if you are interested in a steel-only model take a look at this Bell & Ross BR 05 Chrono Green Steel.
