    Recently purchased my first B&R and I'm quite pleased.

    I have always admired the Bell & Ross line of watches. I knew one day I would finally get one, though I never thought it would be the Type Demineur. However, recently I found myself looking for a new grab and go watch. One that can be worn with jeans and a tee shirt, or to work and easily fit under a button down sleeve. I wanted the watch to be a quartz model for it's . . . Oh crap I'm late for work grab and go ease . . . no winding, no date to set, no need to hack.

    I came across the Type Demineur while searching the web. I really like the look and size. It has a nice presence on the wrist for a relatively thin, roughly 40mm piece. The bracelet is top notch and lends to the strong presence by flairing out to a 22mm width just past the 20mm lugs. I have read that the early models had a more coin edge type bezel. These early models I understand were made by Sinn for B&R (that explains the bracelet) I wish I could have found the Sinn built model . . . this would have also filled my desire to own a Sinn! Anyway, this is a great little watch that is a relatively inexpensive entry point into the Bell & Ross line. Here are a few pics.






    Sorry I'm late . . . I couldn't figure out which watch to wear. Current collection, circa 1964 Breitling 806 Navitimer, 50th Anniversary Cosmonaute, Titanium Seawolf, Grand Seiko sbgr059, sbgt035, sbgr073, Tudor 79190 Blue Submariner, 76200 Oyster Day/Date, Longines Spirit Chrono, Seiko Marine Master sbdx001, sbbn017, sbbn031, to many Turtles, they seem to be multiplying, sbcm025, srp monster with gen one dial and sapphire, Citizen ny0040, Archimede Outdoor, and lastly one I wear every night to bed . . . Marathon Navigator, love the tritium lume tubes.
