Watches that evoke classic military designs are certainly nothing new in the watch world. After all, many features of timekeeping instruments originated out of necessity in wartime scenarios. However, there’s something special about the beige dial of the BR V2-92 Military Beige by Bell & Ross.
The latest incarnation of Bell & Ross’s BR V2 model, the Military Beige features a satin-polished 41mm steel case and uncluttered bidirectional bezel and light beige dial with black painted numerals. In its tasteful simplicity, this watch reproduces much of what makes vintage military-issue field watches so striking and iconic, but adds a touch of elegance and playfulness.
Other features of the Military Beige include a quirky, matching beige date window between 4 and 5 o’clock indices, skeletonised Super-LumiNova-filled hour and minute hands, 100 meters of water resistance, and ultra-curved sapphire crystal dome.
