Built for timekeeping with the Alpine F1 Racing Team
Since its inception in 1994, Bell & Ross has been telling the time to fighter pilots, drawing inspiration from the precise dashboard instruments of aircraft cockpits. That bold and capable aesthetic of instrumentation carries into the white-hot world of Formula 1 racing with this new partnership edition, built to the exacting specifications of the Alpine F1 Racing Team using high-tech, and cutting-edge materials and craftsmanship.
Clad entirely in matte black ceramic, this stealthy square-cased BR 03-92 A522 is the third in a trio of Alpine team timepieces, subtly adopting its color and graphics while meeting the specifications of the team’s drivers. It is called A522, in reference to the current Alpine A522 racing car. The white and blue dial of this sporty timepiece takes its designs cue from the speedometer of an Alpine car referencing the brand’s signature color code. Its dial exhibits large white numerals, coated with Super-LumiNova®, which contrast with the surrounding black, allowing for easy readability, both in daylight and at night. The counterweight of the central blue chrono seconds hand takes up the stylised A of Alpine. A mini blue/white/red flag recalling Alpine’s French tricolour origins is placed above the date window at 6 o’clock and the Alpine’s signature blue is used to highlight the minute track on the flange.
