Other elements needed to be added, of course. The minute/second numerals inside the hour markers is a nice touch, as is the split triangle at 12 o’clock. Assuming there has to be a date window – not a given, by any stretch – this is one of the most discreet out there, with no guichet around the opening and a date disc that’s matched to the same colour as the matte black dial. In terms of dial text, a case could be made for a smaller brand logo, and there’s that word “Horograph” again, but the “100m” in red is a necessary second dot of colour.
The Horograph uses the automatic Sellita-based calibre BR-CAL.302, and has a bead-blasted steel case with a black rubber and “ultra-resistant” (it doesn’t say to what) black synthetic fabric strap.
Released alongside the Horograph is the BR 03-92 Horolum, a slightly more traditional Bell & Ross replica watch that’s nevertheless not without interest. It does retain the large Arabic numerals and familiar hands, but opts for a ghostly grey-green colour scheme, with a sandwich dial construction that reveals green lume on the hour markers and numerals.-->
