    Pre Bell & Ross

    Hi chaps this is my first post as I have just bought my first watch, a BR 03-92-S. I have loved the look of these watches for a long time. B&R are very new in the watch world and I have often thought they must have been inspired by not only dials in cockpits but maybe a lovely little vintage Seiko from 1981

    Here is my Seiko 2628-0040 next to my new B&R

    I thought they were inspired by the Revue Thommen - Aircraft Clock, 16006.3117. Well, so much for that word; "unique".

    I love the matte texture on the B&R dial. I've seen it on other watches and 99 times out of 100 I think it really adds to the overall aesthetic.

    Also, to your original question, definitely seems like there was some inspiration there.
