Blacktrack by Bell & Ross

It’s no secret that Bell & Ross is intrinsically linked to aeronautics. For its new instrument watch, Bell & Ross returns to its love for motorcycles and continues with an exploration of dynamic shapes. Inspired by the avant-garde lines of stealth aircraft, the new BR 03-94 BLACKTRACK chronograph watch is the perfect match for the Blacktrack BT-06 motorcycle, created jointly by Sacha Lakic and the watch brand's designers.

As with all Bell & Ross watches, the BR 03-94 BLACKTRACK does not stop at fine aesthetic execution. Above all, it is an instrument watch designed to be precise, readable, functional, and reliable. The focus on performance and
reliability is at the centre of this collaboration. As such, the design has a fine engine: at the heart of the sporty contemporary timepiece is the BR-CAL.301 self-winding mechanical movement. A calibre with sophisticated finishes
and a 42-hour power reserve, it allows the display of the hours, minutes, seconds and date, as well as chronograph functions. It perfectly meets the performance of the 1,200cc that powers the Blacktrack motorcycle. Efficiency meets personality.

The iconic Bell & Ross design is manifested in a surprising way with the new BR 03-94 BLACKTRACK chronograph. Bikers will notice the motor-inspired black calfskin strap right away, hemmed with a red edge and lined with high-resistance technical material. The strap closes with a steel pin buckle with black PVD coating, while the quilting on the strap itself is a nod to the motorbike saddle covers and rider's suits.


In the red tone of a gauge, the 30-minute chronograph totaliser is immediately readable. The dial features a subtle detail: the superposition of the off-centre chronograph second hand over the minute hand creates the Blacktrack “B”. The bezel is an octagonal shape when viewed from above. With a subtle contrasting mix of grey and black, feature notable exquisitely on the numbers, all the information is present and readable on a dial that leans into dark tones, complete with an openwork cooling grid. At the flange and indices, the typography of the numbers is carefully crafted. The indices are treated with Super-LumiNova® , and same applies to the skeletonized hands.

To mark the ever-existing connection between Bell & Ross and Motorcycles, the BR 03-94 BLACKTRACK chronograph can be inserted in the centre of the motorcycle console, allowing the instrument watch to be moved from wrist to dashboard: the symbiosis between the two machines is complete.
