    About Bell & Ross compare to other brands.

    Hi, I'm still surveying for all watches. I just wondering that what so special about Bell And Ross watches compare to Panerai or Rolex and etc. For the Panerai watches, it's show how capable the automatic movement are and for the Rolex, some of the watches made from gold. But what about Bell And Ross???

    Hi Eric, welcome on this forum
    I don't really understand what you mean with this kind of survey ? The most important thing is the model pleases and suits you.
    If you're keen to own a BR it would be pity that kind of arguments gets you to change your mind !

    BR has gold watches too... and very good and efficient movements... Why do you want to compare a brand with others ? BR has an unique design, that's what I love!

    Actually, I'm planning to buy a new watch but I need to do more research.
    At least, I have no regret it after I buy.
    To be honest, I prefer bulky watch such as Panerai.
    But it's really over budget for me.
    I do research again and I saw Bell & Ross watches.
    I choose either BR 01-92 or BR 03-92.
    It's seems like they gave very few information's about it.
    I gonna post some picture's so that you can understand well.

    One more question I need to ask.
    Why BR01-92 got 4 screws on the back cover near the straps but BR03-92 don't have any???
    It write that 1.3mm.
    What actually that screws use for???
    I send the picture and you see the red circle on BR01-92.

    Basically if you drop or dent the watch, the damaged lugs can be replaced individually, rather than the entire watch case.

    And at first the top lugs can be removed to fit the watch on a desk support and transform your watch into a desk clock.

    I see, now I understand the difference between 01 and 03.

    They suppose to write more information about every watches.

    So, it won't happen to everyone to be confuse.

    I would say if you're into a Panerai, but perhaps they are out of budget, you will absolutely love owning a B&R. Many of us own both and will tell you from experience, the initial value of a B&R far outweighs a Panerai - unless you're comparing it to one of the newer Richemont PAMs with an in-house movement, which would not directly compare to a B&R yet. A base PAM is roughly twice the price of a base B&R and is a treat to wear. They are rock-solid, iconic designed (which is something you can say about very few watches designed in the past 3 decades), easy to service should something go wrong, and have the best, most dedicated, and warmest community of any watch I own.

    The choice is very simple. get one!

    Compare of course we will compare with other brands.

    Just we don't want to regret it after we bought.

    To be honest, Bell & Ross design really not bad.

    But the year of the brand make me feel that it just started to begin build this brand.

    We still don't know whether this brand can really improve or not.

    If not mistaken, Bell & Ross was launched in year 1992.

    Just 23 years only.

    Not popular as Tag Heuer or Rolex or Panerai.

    You ask everyone, "DO YOU KNOW TAG HEUER OR ROLEX OR PANERAI BRANDS???"

    They will say "YES".

    "WHAT ABOUT BELL & ROSS???

    Mostly they all said "NO".

    I already asked my friends, they gave me the same answer. "NO".

    So, someone have to do something to make Bell & Ross brand to be popular.

    Let all the people knows this brand exist.

    Firstly, I not try to do some bad things or words to destroy Bell & Ross brand.

    That's not what I really mean.

    My meaning is Bell & Ross need to boost their brand all the world.

    Let all people know this brand exist.

    They should promote their brand into action movies or any songs.

    And that's Bell & Ross brand will be popular.
