    BR03-92 Diver

    Bell & Ross BR03-92 Diver - watchuseek.com

    The new diver from B&R? Just a rehashed BR03. Very disappointing. I was really hoping for an updated BR02, which is a watch I love.

    I understand that the BR03 is the big seller but I think they really need to do something other than another square case, something that would make it a line of its own.

    I'm not bashing the square case, I have my eye on a BR01 GMT, but I think they've missed a real opportunity to revamp the BR02.

    I cannot be the first person to notice this, but the dial on the BR03-92 looks an awful lot like the one on a Seiko SKX007/171.

    Nevertheless, I do like the B&R dial design a lot (perhaps because it reminds me of the iconic Seiko). I wouldn't be surprised if we find this new dial in the "round" Bell & Ross offerings, although that would create a watch that competes with about a dozen other Swiss dive watches in the same price range.

    I agree they could have done something more with the 02. The tonneau shape is great and despite the size, is very wearable. I love mine and was hoping they would keep the 02 line.
    But I also like this latest version of the 03 and I think it works quite well as a dive watch. I can't wait to see one in the flesh. I think the crown guards look good, the dial still looks like the pro diver 02 (which does also look a little bit like a 007) but I would have liked to see 120 click bezel.
    Overall though, I like it.

    Interesting crown lock too - or is that just an indication of which direction to turn to screw in?

    I think it's a regular screw down crown, the arrow indicates direction to unscrew. At least that's what it looks like based on my 02.

    Yes, again, they could have made something of this. But I could be wrong on the crown set up

    I don't see any strong visual similarity beyond the circular markers. The 6, 9 and 12 cardinals are elongated in both cases, and both the '"12"s widen out at the top - and the proportional size of the markers to the overall dial area is quite similar. But aside from the round markers, everything is of a different shape, including all the hands, and all the other dial detailing.

    On the contrary, I feel that BR did a great job in designing a dive watch onto a square case.
    I find this watch very appealing compared to other brand's new release at Basel.

    I dig this. I've heard 3700 or so price. Seems a bit high.
