Full hands on review of the Bell & Ross Bronze Diver
Bell & Ross Bronze Diver Demiurgus
The limited edition timepiece, of only 100 pieces, distinguishes itself from the others through its dial which is a new khaki colour. The alliance of Bronze – the Marine industry’s metal of choice – and khaki – mirroring the color of the Military camouflage uniform – contrasts beautifully together, giving it a charismatic look. In total compliance with military and diving technical specifications, the monochromatic olive drab dial is perfectly readable night and day thanks to its gold-plated appliqué indices with Super-LumiNova® inserts.
Its case of 42.0 mm and bezel are made of satin-polished CuSn8 bronze – an alloy made of 92% Copper and 8% Tin; cohesively a material that is deeply linked with diving history as it was used in the past for deep-sea helmets or naval construction. The bronze case gives rise to a patina which forms on the surface of the bronze with time and depending on its environment, gaining a unique shade over the years. Over time, the metal will cast beautiful tones of reddish brown or greyish green, giving it a rugged and distinctive touch, and making it unique.

The aged leather strap confirms the watch’s authentic vintage spirit but can be replaced with a rubber strap for use while diving.
