Have you heard of Bell & Ross Cortina BR03-92 Diver Bronze ‘Demiurgus’?

A new limited-edition version of B&R’s precious dive models has been launched successfully by cooperation of french luxury watch brand, Bell & Ross and Singapore’s well-known Rolex along with Patek Philippe retailer, Cortina Watch. For those who are fond of overseas journey, it is well worth to recommend. With the limited 100 pieces only, the 42mm Bell & Ross Cortina BR03-92 Diver Bronze ‘Demiurgus’ is not a radical departure from the brand’s flight-instrument inspired timepiece, but it has been adapted to meet the requirements of scuba divers. Water resistant to 300 meters / 1000 feet, the ‘Demiurgus’ celebrates the 15-year partnership between Bell & Ross and Cortina, an early adopter of their idiosyncratic watch brand founded in 1993. 
‘Demiurgus’ is the nickname to be given for this watch, indicating ‘creator of the universe’ in some belief systems, although this personage tends to be more of an artisan than arbitrary deity. The drab olive dial features gold-plated applique indices with Super-LumiNova inserts, while the case and bezel are fashioned from satin-polished CuSn8 bronze which is a patented alloy made of 92% copper and 8% tin. The unidirectional bezel has a 60-minute scale, and the watch is featured with Bell & Ross’s calibre BR-CAL.302 automatic movement. The aesthetic inspiration is a vintage bronze diving helmet, even if B&R have made it to fit their own design style smartly.
Due to the addition of tin in the bronze alloy, Swiss-made watch can gain more patina rather than common bronze-aluminum variety that is used for most fake rolex watches of this style. Panerai also adopted CuSn8 bronze for dive watches, which will show age and wear, taking on reddish brown and grayish green hues as time past, therefore it enhances the watch’s character, although the look is not fit for everyone well. The strap is made of weathered leather backed by black rubber, while the caseback is engraved with the image of a vintage diving helmet and the specifications for this limited edition watch from Bell & Ross and Cortina. Are you shocked by this stunning limited timepieces?
