*THE QUINTESSENTIAL BELL & ROSS MILITARY WATCH*
*COMPLETE SET (BOX, PAPERS, EXTRA $125 STRAP)*
In its 28 years, French watchmakers Bell & Ross have pushed the envelope and caught the attention of enthusiasts with their “function defines form” principle: first the watch must solve a problem, and second, it must look good doing it. Enter the BR V2-92. The BR V2-92 comes from the “Vintage” line, with an aesthetic that harkens back to steam-powered cockpit instruments. The slim BR V2-92 decorates the wrist of many pilots while staying out of the way.
Which leads me to the watch itself: the slim frame means it’s barely noticeable on the wrist. The convex glass dial (which adds a few millimeters in thickness) manages to maintain the overall feeling of a slim timepiece, but bulks it up a bit to help it fit the size of a larger wrist. At the smaller end of the size spectrum, the B&R V2-92 fits the military style without feeling like you’re walking around with a giant hockey puck on your wrist.
Now, let’s talk about rarity: there aren’t a lot of these out there. There are none available on eBay, and the units on Chrono24 range between $2000 to $2900 and do not include the rubber strap. I’ve priced this one at the lowest end of the pre-owned spectrum to sell quickly. I also included a rubber patchwork black strap with a dazzling stainless steel buckle. It also includes the vintage NATO strap ($125 value) that comes with the watch brand new to give you a choice of straps.

The case has been gently polished with a jeweler’s cloth (not a full abrasive polish or treated with chemicals), and the straps have both been cleaned and disinfected. The NATO strap has been safely laundered and scrubbed. It’s back to its brand new condition and is unworn since being cleaned. The rubber strap has been scrubbed and cleared of any past use. All my watches are properly cleaned and disinfected before sale.
This watch is 100% guaranteed authentic. I stand behind the authenticity of all timepieces I sell. All photos are the actual watch being sold. Note a minor scratch on the bezel (pictured). The case has a few minor scratches but no dents or dings. Both straps are in excellent condition.
