Jour­ney to the stars

The Sun (Malaysia) - - FASHION -

WITH its con­stel­la­tion of di­a­monds and faceted indices, the stud­ded dial of the Bell & Ross BR S Di­a­mond Ea­gle uses the watch­maker’s art to cre­ate its ce­les­tial dis­play. The re­fined mid­night blue dial fea­tures a sun­ray pat­tern, tes­ta­ment to the brand’s in-house ex­per­tise, char­ac­terised by tiny lines ra­di­at­ing out­wards like sun­beams. The dial is then cov­ered in a blue-tinted var­nish, which gives it an ex­quis­ite depth.

The time dis­play is easy to read in­di­cated by two slim hands with a stream­lined de­sign. Any woman con­tem­plat­ing this del­i­cate watch will be im­me­di­ately trans­ported to the skies, as if in a dream. The dial is an aero­plane port­hole through which she can ad­mire the stun­ning night sky.

The case comes from the BR fam­ily, cre­ated in 2005, upon which the brand’s rep­u­ta­tion was built. It fea­tures, as it al­ways has, the sig­na­ture form of this icon – the cir­cle within a square. Machined from steel, it is al­ter­nately pol­ished and sat­in­fin­ished to cre­ate a vis­ual con­trast be­tween the bezel and the case, and is wa­ter-re­sis­tant to 100 me­tres. It houses a re­li­able and ac­cu­rate Swiss made quartz move­ment at its heart.

The en­graved case back echoes the Aquila con­stel­la­tion, this time in a stylised de­sign. The mid­night blue al­li­ga­tor strap with pearles­cent hints adds to the har­mo­nious pal­ette of blues used for this model. Ev­ery as­pect of the watch has been de­signed with care, even the tini­est de­tail.

The BR S Di­a­mond Ea­gle is avail­able in two ver­sions, one of which boasts a bezel set with 66 white di­a­monds; a pres­ti­gious and el­e­gant watch turned into a con­tem­po­rary piece of jew­ellery. This ul­tra fem­i­nine col­lec­tion ex­udes a cos­mic, yet cos­mopoli­tan ap­peal.
