BELL&ROSS BR 03-93 GMT is a tool watch for modern travelers and busy men who are looking for basic timepieces. The new BR 03-93 GMT is faithful to its iconic square flagship model and replaces the existing version. Redesigned, more modern, more practical, and easier to read. This “tool watch” can be traced back to the basics in terms of design and shape, and is influenced by two keywords: functionality and legibility. This new GMT timepiece provides time in three different locations around the world.
BELL&ROSS and GMT function
In terms of time, the GMT function was originally developed to meet the needs and specifications of pilots (especially pilots). The acronym GMT is used to indicate the second time zone, but it does not necessarily come from Greenwich. This complication has gained popularity since then and has now become a common complication used by travelers. Bell & Ross replica is good at aviation, especially aviation instruments. Its design usually matches the specifications created by professional users.
In 2007, the brand launched the first GMT instrument, Bell & Ross BR 03‑51 GMT TITANIUM. The service for long-distance travelers faces two complex issues: a second time zone and a larger date for best readability. The case is made of brushed titanium, and the dial is made of high-tech materials such as carbon fiber, which can optimize the performance of the watch. The carbon fiber version was released later in 2013.
This complication was then selected to equip the Vintage series. Following the BR V2-93 GMT 24H launched in 2018, Bell & Ross has completed a watch series for modern frequent travelers (including professionals and civilians) in search of a fashionable and practical timepiece. The BR V2-93 GMT blue watch-launched in 2020 and picked by Air France pilots-decorated with a streamlined blue sunray dial to highlight the world of air travel and long-distance transatlantic travel, while second-hand counterweights are cleverly shaped The shape of an airplane.
2021 will be a year to further strengthen the bond with its core business and First Passion Aviation. It is also the year when Bell & Ross rethinks its GMT instrument and launches a new version.

It is an indispensable tool for airplane pilots and an indispensable tool for globetrotters, but it is also useful for those who are currently tracking multiple time zones at the same time. Of course, this feature is useful when you are traveling between different time zones, and it is worthwhile if your activities occur in different time zones. It is the ultimate utility when you need to work remotely and want to keep in sync with overseas offices or when you need to schedule meetings across time zones.
The black daylight dial contrasts sharply with the large white photoluminescent numbers and indexes. The DNA of Bell & Ross is deeply rooted in this color scheme. It calls the color applied to the onboard flight instrument. In fact, the cockpit is dominated by black (to prevent reflections) and white (to ensure best reading).
This new updated version is different from the previous version in many ways. The new BR 03-93 GMT timepiece provides time in three different locations around the world.
How does it work?
Now, the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) hand stands out with its big red triangle, which is clearly visible both day and night. The fourth hand rotates around the dial within 24 hours to display the second time zone (or local time in the 24-hour clock). For the first time, the iconic square finish with two-way borders. The BR 03 case has been specially modified to meet this new functional bezel. It can read the second time zone, but it can also display the third time zone. Rotating clockwise will decrease the hours, rotating counterclockwise will increase the hours.
The bezel borrowed from the same color combination as the dial is equipped with a 24-hour scale. Bell & Ross chose black and red tones. Red is known for its frank, clear and dynamic characteristics. The red part means daytime, and the black part means night. Therefore, the two-tone bezel provides visual contrast/effects to identify time readings and is made of anodized aluminum.
