In November I attended ClubQP which was the small version of SalonQP. Bell and Ross were there with a full range of their new BR05, the watch that I and many mocked – calling it a cheap alternative to the AP Royal Oak. The Bell & Ross BR05 really surprised me, the build quality was amazing.
Let me know what you think of the Bell & Ross BR05

bell and ross br05 review, hands on review bell and ross br05, B&R BR05, is the bell and ross br05 any good?, cheap alternative to AP royal Oak?, cheap alternative to Patek Nautilus, Cheap alternative to Vacheron overseas, cheap blue steel sports watch, cheap alternative to Rolex submariner. bell and ross br05 gold, bell and ross br05 skeletonized,
How can you compare a royal Oak too this ? 🤣 one is £40k plus and this is 4k 🤣🤣 like comparing a ford fiesta to a porsche
Casework is brilliant on these. The layout may be somewhat derivative of other brands but not offensively so. Personally, the RO and any Rolex look like old-man watches to me.
I never tried it but I really do like the design BUT that price is really crazy!
It’s funny when you said « why someone would pay that price for that movement » I instantly made the analogy with cars. I was looking for a new car years ago and tested a brand new (at the time) Mercedes. Really nice car, you pay for a premium German car BUT with a Renault engine… why 🤦🏻♂️
I have no problems with the design. The people who dismiss this watch are the same ones who talks loudly about cars and knows about as much about engineering them (very little) as they do about watches. However..visible scratchmarks on the indices and the date frame at this price point?!
Still, a great looking piece.
it is one of my favourites watches … but i do not like the bad sound you noticed !!
C’est celle là que je veux
It looks like a nautilus in a lot of ways. The bracelet is more of Patek than AP.
love this watch. its my secret love affair. I think the RO is a bit feminine while this is a manly version.
Would love a homage of this!
So you say you changed your mind, in a good way or a bad way?
jomashop currently has a stainless steel version for $3.5 – is that more palatable ?
Can you compare this watch with zenith defy classic 41 mm blue dial?
Can’t wait for it to depreciate so I can buy one.
An old but new trend if Rolex been bored some.
Better get a good old navitimer
Looks like you filmed this one from Teddy Baldasarres front room… or does he come round to yours for shoots?? #confused 🤷🏻♂️😉
I agree with your point Adrien . I’ve seen watches and didn’t like them . But when you actually put them on your opinion changes. I used to hate on the Tudor GMT. Then the first time I tried it on, I actually bought it . Incidentally I still have it and love it
Good review, I personally like the looks of it. People complain about price but lets be honest the AP and PP Nautilus are also total rip offs for a stainless steel sports watch , inhouse movement or not.
The Chrono is out..😁
100% Changed my mind. Hated it in photos, hated it in the window… in fact only tried it on so I could write an easy review, but then when I got it on the wrist I totally reversed my opinion. I wouldn’t buy it either, it’s too expensive, but it is a lot cooler than I thought
No, the price is not easier to swallow. This is a 2500 pound watch max. Looks beautiful, I agree.
and how they say it is overpiced rolex sub mariner and they got the balls to sell a sqaure watch and it is pretty and nice i want other brands to compete square watches i think it coud be a thing
I love Bell and Ross I believe this brand will only get better with time.
I have a £4k IWC with a Sellita movement and a £4k Omega with an ETA movement, so I’m struggling to dislike this watch because of the movement, and when it’s on your wrist it looks very nice – I didn’t buy one but I tried one on in the shop and it’s really nice, but maybe not nice enough to buy at £4k.
Well it’s a fifth of the price of the Patek/AP/Vacheron. For me, this is a true sports watch that you might actually wear without a special occasion. Aesthetically, it also suits that; particularly on the rubber strap
The chinese but quartz hommage is nice too! For 40Euro…
B&R has its own signature style. They make great watches. I’d get a pre-owned JLC reverse if wanted to spend over $4000
30k for a „rose“ what ever watch 😀
I’ve seen this watch in real life. On photo it looks better than in real life. It feels very cheap and the finishing is terrible on the strap. Feels very rough.
Gold looks fresh
I actually think this is watch is stunning! I was waiting for the preowned prices to come down a little but now I’m not so sure after watching this review, it wears MASSIVE!
Selleti movement.. nothing special.. what was the thickness , this is not explained on the B&R site.. that’s very important to me..
Love the gold one, but it’s too expensive😭
Don’t be so inhibited, just tell us how you really feel. 🙂 and cheers mate!
I don’t think this looks like a boring Royal Oak, more like a CalArts cartoon version of the Patek philippe Nautilus.
Nice watch submariner.store . Stainless steel looks quality. The automatic mecanism works perfectly and the pendulum at the back rotates nicely.Shipping was fast and it passed through Netherland to avoid customs which is very good.I recommend this seller.
Just watched this review on watch Adrew’s channel before coming here
I think it is tough to get over the mindset of in house is the best.
I wouldn’t say this watch looks like an AP Royal Oak, rather if we look at the bracelet, and the shape of the case, we can see a vague resemblance to the Nautilus…
i was also thinking that but i bought one today it was zo pretty on my wrist
That’s why I only buy used
Confusing video. You pointed out your dislikes throughout the video, then before closing you said "this watch is quite a fair offering". I am not sure your point in making the video in the first place. So will you buy it or not?
It’s a nice looking watch if you like huge watches. No watch is a rip off if you don’t buy it. It’s just overpriced. But then again, some, in fact most if not all "luxury" watches are overpriced. That’s the definition of luxury at its most base. Price it high enough and it becomes desirable. The question is individualised: ,"how prepared are you to pay the price for this watch?" The rest doesn’t matter. Don’t like…don’t buy. And if you buy and then regret…..your problem, not the watch maker/seller’s. You didn’t get ripped of. You just made a bad decision for you. This watch is way too big/flashy and too expensive for me regardless of it’s contradictory, "instrument" design ethos.
Gold isn’t me. Simplicity goes along away and save me money at the same time. Planning to get this brand. I have breitling super ocean on my collection.
I agree! It’s a nice watch for sure… but just not my cup of tea. And I think the price point is a bit too steep. Especially for the all gold version – B&R are going to struggle to get those off the shelves. Cheers
You hit the nail on the head, I feel the same way. Cheers!
Whats your wrist size adrien?
good quality and 2 weeks delivery submariner.store . i highly recommend this watch. i will buy another watch soon
