About This Watch

The case of the BR123 is just the right size at 41mm across, round, with a thin bezel and long, wide shouldered lugs that add just a little masculine swagger to the watch. In profile the lugs are surprisingly slender and taper quite strongly - they really do look and feel like lugs from the '50s or '60s. The case is a mix of satin and polished finishes, which keeps it somewhere in between smart and 'tool' watch. The crown is solid and well machined, but not too chunky or over-tooled. Special mention should go to the crystal on the 123. Rather than opt for the industry standard flat sapphire Bell & Ross have opted for a lovely, high-domed sapphire, which now seems to be called "glassbox" which gives the watch a lovely warm vibe and really helps it live up to the vintage moniker. It would have been easy for them to go with a cheaper sapphire option, but they've made the right call in opting for the more expensive crystal, as it elevates the watch. On the whole this is a nicely executed and comfortable case and crystal that lives up to the vintage inspired promise of the BR 123. The dial layout is very simple and clean, and it is in these elements that the Bell & Ross brand DNA is most evident. Big bold printed Arabics at 12, 3 and 9, and strong indices and hash marks around the rest echo the military layout of the iconic B&R tool watches.
