Bell & Ross BR-S watch

I was out doing my usual watch hunting the other day when I came across this watch. It was a Bell & Ross, one of the BR01 type watch. I love the BR01 range of watches but this one really caught my eye. Why? Well it had a sub-dial for the seconds hand. All the BR01 that I have seen had centrally mounted sweep seconds hand. The other reason the watch caught my eye was it was powered by a quartz movement. 

I was going like, this can't be a real BR01. So in I went and inquired. Man, I need to get out more. The watch is part of the BR-S range. The BR-S range is a classic interpretation of the professional BR01 instrument watches. Now I know. Imagine I thought, a fake Bell & Ross.

Anyway, the basic specifications:

Functions: hours, minutes, seconds (sub-dial at 6 o'clock)
Case: stainless steel covered with black ceramics, 38 X 39 mm, thickness 7 mm
Movement: ETA 980.163 quartz movement, 15 jewels
Crystal: sapphire
Water resistant: 5 ATM

The watch is available in a number of case finish, brushed stainless steel, white ceramics or even pink gold. Cool, learn something new everyday.
