The style of the BR 03-92 Red Radar Ceramic version is as modern as ever. Its display breaks traditional watchmaking codes by revisiting the graphics of an aircraft control radar. The time can be read via a system of rotating discs, combined with an analogue hand. The dial is covered with red sapphire crystal. In constant pursuit of innovation and performance, Bell & Ross has now chosen to use ceramic. This high-tech material is scratch-resistant, yet soft to the touch.
The Red Radar Ceramic revisits the ground-breaking display of the Red Radar, with a more playful look. Its design is reminiscent of a stylized toy. The system comprises two concentric discs which fuse with the dial and replace the hour and minute hands. In a major new feature, the discs move two tiny screen-printed airplanes, giving the impression that they are flying over the dial. For this inventive display, two ultra-light discs had to be designed to preserve the power reserve. These discs will not deform and maintain a constant parallelism. Our watchmakers have strived to ensure that the precision of the watch is not altered by friction and the assembly of each component has been fine-tuned to the nearest micron. Guaranteeing this has required the combined expertise of our in-house engineers.
The two rotating discs on this revolutionary display take the place of the hands and the two stylized planes replace the conventional arrows. The passenger plane travels on the large, outermost disc, showing the hours. The fighter plane flies on the smaller-diameter disc and shows the minutes. A slim, analogue central hand accompanies these two airplanes, showing the seconds. The passenger plane travels slower than the fighter plane, as it does in real life. The former completes one lap of the dial in 12 hours, the latter in sixty minutes. Ultimately, there are two levels on the display. A lower level: the discs, the planes. An upper level: the hour scale printed on the inside of the sapphire crystal. The large red hand navigates between the two.
