In collaboration with the Tara Océan Foundation, Bell & Ross presents the BR 03-92 DIVER TARA limited edition. This professional-grade diver’s watch has been designed to meet the needs of the crew on board the oceanography exploration schooner Tara, who carries out the organisation’s scientific mission even in extreme conditions. The Tara Ocean Foundation is the first public interest foundation in France dedicated to the Ocean. It has two main missions: exploring the Ocean to better understand it and sharing scientific knowledge about the Ocean to raise public awareness.
For 20 years, the Foundation has been supporting innovative Ocean science, in partnership with world-leading research centres to study marine biodiversity, as well as observing and anticipating the impacts of climate change and pollution. Faced with the urgent need to make the protection of the Ocean a common responsibility, the Foundation raises public awareness of the challenges facing the Ocean, educates young generations, facilitates international cooperation, and mobilises policymakers.
Bell & Ross has always designed watches that are built for action. The BR 03-92 DIVER TARA watch has been adopted by all crew members because of its legibility and efficiency. Regularly confronted with perilous conditions, the crew has to push the limits of the extreme. To cope with the magnitude of their tasks, these experienced scientists and sailors need to be able to count on precise, reliable tools under all circumstances. Every model from the new BR 03-92 DIVER TARA takes part in this commitment: for every watch sold, part of the profits will be donated to the Foundation.
For a perfect symbiosis with the Tara Océan Foundation, Bell & Ross chose to design BR 03-92 DIVER TARA, an instrument watch worthy of the missions undertaken by the scientists on board the schooner Tara. Part of the BR 03 DIVER professional diver’s watch collection, this limited edition watch is waterproof to a depth of 300 metres.
The model features a 42mm matte blue ceramic case and is equipped with a unidirectional rotating ceramic bezel in blue and orange, graduated to 60 minutes as required by professional divers. This efficient timepiece is powered by the BR-CAL 302 self-winding mechanical movement, displaying the hours, minutes, seconds and date. To ensure the display’s perfect readability whether on land, on board or while diving, the deep blue metal dial features applique indexes and white graduation, with optimal luminescence in the dark thanks to a Super- LumiNova coating. The seconds hand features an orange tint, making it immediately identifiable and readable.
The flexible and comfortable strap closes with a steel pin buckle with blue PVD coating and is made of blue woven rubber lined with an ultra-resistant technical material.
