One of the main reference when it comes to aviation timepieces is back with a stealth style release. Introducing the “Bell & Ross BR03-92 Nightlum” watch with a classic yet modern and functional design, wrapped in a cloak of covert operations.
As the name of the watch immediately hints at: “Lum” stands for light and “Night” for its outstanding readability at nighttime. Despite its matte black casing and matt black dial color, the green tinted Superluminova®C3luminescent coating is ultra-phosphorescent, providing a very long durability in dark.
Reading the index marker or large Arabic numerals is an easy feat even in circumstances of complete darkness, thanks to the extreme contrast provided by the intense green light, amongst the dominant matt black surroundings.
