There is more than meets the eye to obtain this uncompromising result. Some special coatings are worth noting on this timepiece.
By using the green color, Bell & Ross recreates the graphic style of this instrument as closely as possible. The green on the dial mirrors the computer-type display of the HUD, and the case’s anti-reflective matte black background provides a striking contrast. The crystal glass is tinted and obtained through a green metallization technique that is applied on its back side.
Furthermore, the BR03-92 HUD fits perfectly into the family of instrument watches with the objective of optimum readability under any circumstances. To provide an intense green light, the Hours numerals, indices, triangle as well as the minute-circle and hands are coated with green Super-LumiNova® C3 treatment. The ladder is also applied on the 4 brackets.
This combination - green-tinted glass on green information - emphasizes the ultra-legibility of the dial and its fluorescent brightness to reproduce the HUD digital green display. A true punch of light - at day and night - well suited for ‘Nights Owls’ and pilots.
