So why did the watch take a full year longer to be released than was expected? It has to do with the hands and the base ETA 2892 automatic movement. The discs weigh much more than hands and are subject to a lot more friction. As such, it was a complex engineering feat to ensure that the watch was accurate and long lasting. As such, the discs needed to be made as light in weight as possible, with extremely low tolerances for manufacturing deviation. The Radar watch uses the standard 46mm wide PVD black steel Bell & Ross BR01 case. It comes with a rubber strap and is 100 meters watch resistant. Certainly an acquired taste, but with a limited edition of just 100 pieces, I think Bell & Ross will find enough takers. Should be available in stores this summer.
