My Experience with the BR-X5 Green Lum by Bell & Ross

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

As a passionate watch enthusiast, I am always on the lookout for timepieces that blend cutting-edge technology with practical design. The BR-X5 Green Lum by Bell & Ross is an exquisite example of this fusion, and experiencing it firsthand has truly exceeded my expectations. Bell & Ross invited us to an exclusive event to explore their latest releases, and here are our thoughts on the all-new BR-X5.

LM3D: A Revolutionary Material

From the moment I put on the BR-X5 Green Lum, I was captivated by Bell & Ross’s innovative use of the LM3D material. By combining epoxy quartz fiber with a luminescent material and resin, they have created a composite that is as strong as carbon fiber but 70% lighter than steel. This material, invisible to the naked eye, perfectly diffuses light, maintaining a uniform color and brightness. When wore it in low-light conditions, the watch case glowed bright green, providing not only a stunning visual effect but also exceptional readability.

Manufacture Movement by Kenissi

The BR-X5 Green Lum is the first collection from Bell & Ross to feature a manufacture movement developed by Kenissi. The BR-CAL.323 calibre is a testament to several years of research and development, offering a power reserve of approximately 70 hours. Throughout my time wearing it, I appreciate the accuracy and the minimal need for frequent winding, which is a significant advantage for everyday wear.

Innovative Case Architecture

Wearing the BR-X5 Green Lum, I could feel the marvel of modern engineering. The multi-component case alternates between layers of LM3D and grade 2 microblasted black titanium with a DLC (diamond-like carbon) finish. The robustness and visual appeal of the case were evident every time I glanced at my wrist. The green luminescent fiberglass composite inserts and the smoked grey sapphire crystal case-back added to the watch’s allure, making it a true standout in any collection.

Technical Excellence

Every aspect of the BR-X5’s technical specifications speaks to Bell & Ross’s commitment to quality. The 41 mm case, with a thickness of 12.80 mm, is perfectly proportioned, providing a comfortable fit. The sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating ensures a clear view of the dial. The watch’s water-resistance up to 100 meters gives confidence wearing it during various activities, knowing it could withstand more than just everyday wear. The black openworked rubber strap with a steel buckle finished in DLC added a touch of modern sophistication and comfort.

Practical Functions

In addition to its aesthetic appeal, the BR-X5 proved to be incredibly functional. The hours, minutes, and seconds were displayed with legiably, and the date window at 3 o’clock and power reserve indicator at 9 o’clock were practical features that enhances the watch’s usability during the course of day.

Bringing it all Home

Wearing the BR-X5 Green Lum by Bell & Ross has been an extraordinary experience. This remarkable timepiece combines innovative materials, exceptional craftsmanship, and practical functionality. It is a watch that not only stands out for its unique luminescent case but also delivers in terms of performance and reliability. I highly recommend the BR-X5 Lum to anyone looking for a watch that embodies the perfect blend of practicality and innovation.
