This year, Bell & Ross is delighted to launch a trilogy with the legendary Alain Silberstein for Grail Watch and sold exclusively on Grailwatch.com.
As a member of our community, you are invited to pre-order your piece. Grail Watch 4: Bell & Ross x Alain Silberstein Black Ceramic Trilogy will be available to the public on GrailWatch.com on 9 January 2023, 10pm SGT / 3pm CET / 9am EST.
Together with colorful designer Silberstein, Bruno Belamich & Carlos Rosillo, have created a trilogy of timepieces based on our iconic BR 03, inspired by aviation cockpit instruments. The new Grail Watch Alain Silberstein x Bell & Ross Trilogy consists of a BR 03 time-only model with date, a BR 03 diving watch and a BR 03 chronograph. Three watches that tell a story about shared passions, people and above all, the essence of design. Each watch will be made in numbered examples, with the first 50 of each being sold as an exclusive boxed set.
BELL & ROSS x ALAIN SILBERSTEIN BR 03-92 KLUB 22
The time-only model is the purest expression of the collaboration between Silberstein’s and Bell & Ross’ design philosophies. On a pure black ceramic case and jet-back dial, we see the hands transform from functional objects into massive oversized geometric forms evoking a sense of playfulness, optimism and humor.
A huge red circle describes the hours, an oversized blue arrow reads the minutes, while an S-shaped form in bold yellow indicates the passing of the seconds. The dial is interrupted only by the subtle date indicator. At the same time, the minute track is pure Bell & Ross, expressing the rugged instrument typography gleaned from cockpit instruments. Providing an additional jolt of visual energy, the four cardinal markers have also been turned primary yellow. The time-only watch features an automatic movement with date function, the caliber BR.CAL-302.
Priced at USD 4,400, limited to 200 pieces.

The diver model expresses Silberstein’s most daring new interpretation of his design language while still retaining its functional utility as a submersible timepiece.
This timepiece therefore features the very first use of Silberstein’s “Maxi” hands, a blue circular material with a massive luminous plot for the hours, and a huge red triangle inlaid with luminous material for the all-important minute hand that provides a reading for elapsed dive time.
Silberstein and Belamich also worked extensively on a two-tone ceramic bezel with the last 20 minutes of the insert, colored red and featuring a full set of 20-minute markers with luminous indexes.
The diver model is depth rated to 300 meters, features a screw-down crown and is powered by the same automatic movement with date function the time-only model, caliber BR.CAL-302.
Priced at USD 5,600, limited to 100 pieces.

The chronograph model is the watch for both visual maximalists and those who love the functional advantages of a timepiece capable of timing events. It has a total of five of Silberstein’s famous Bauhaus-inspired hands, the same red circle for the hours and blue arrow for the minutes, but now the yellow S-shaped hand serves as the chronograph seconds indicator.
In addition, a blue triangle serves as the indicator for the chronograph 30-minute counter, with a yellow arrow for the continuous seconds indicator. The chronograph pushers are inlaid with a yellow lacquered rectangle for the start/stop function and a blue rectangle for the reset function. The crown features Silberstein’s signature red triangle. The watch features an automatic chronograph movement with date, the caliber BR.CAL-301.
Priced at USD 6,700, limited to 100 pieces.
Finally, all watches are individually numbered. Watches 1 to 50 will be sold exclusively in a box set of all three timepieces. Together with Bell & Ross, Silberstein has designed an incredible collector’s box for these Trilogy sets, featuring his signature primary colors. These boxes are the perfect way to display the timepieces together.
We hope you will enjoy these watches as much as we did creating them.
