|Bell And Ross BR03-90 Big Date Power Reserve Watch Review|
New for 2012 from Bell & Ross is the BR03-90 Big Date and Power Reserve. Back to what put Bell & Ross on the map, the instrument series. This likely to be one of W&R favorite stainless steel BR03’s for sometime. The BR01’s are great, but unless you have LARGE wrist, it tends to look like a large square plate at 46mm. The BR03 series at 42mm is the most proportional size for majority wrist out there on the streets. Keep in mind because it is square, it wears much larger than a more traditional 42mm.
Why is it a new favorite beyond the 42mm size? The date window has moved to the 12 o’clock position and is larger, hence, the name Big Date. Always love a power reserve indicator as long as it does not clutter up the dial. Bell & Ross stayed with a simple layout and it works very well on the BR03-90. The Bell & Ross name and logo has been shifted to the 3 o’clock position. Though, the watch might be better balanced without the 9 numeral and just have the 12 numeral. The watch uses an automatic movement, with a 40 hour power, and of course the indicator to keep you informed. If you have been a fan of the instrument series and have not taken the plunge, this might be the one for you.
