Thread: I made an impulse buy.

  1. #1

    I made an impulse buy.

    Iím in Colorado for work this week. Stopped in at Betteridge in Vail on my way back to Denver. Iíd seen photos and read reviews about the Bell & Ross BR-V2 93 GMT, and remember liking it when it was announced at last yearís Basel fair.
    Anyway, i had a good conversation with the sales guy, he offered me a great deal so I jumped on it. I have no real need for another GMT as Iím typically wearing my GMT Master, but this thing looks so good and the price is right. I justified it by saying Iíd wear it on business trips when the Rolex doesnít seem appropriate and/or safe to wear.
    The store even FedExíd it out and it will be at my home tomorrow at 10:30am (Iím on a red eye from Denver and land at 4am).
    What do you all think of the watch?

    Looks like a nicer alternative to GMT master and its numerous homages,I like the Panerai-like dial and the round date window in that particular position

    Itís 41mm and the thickness (or lack of thickness) is awesome. It wears like a Speedmaster. Thatís the best way i can describe it. Itís really grown on me.

    Yeah, itís not a Sandwich dial but you can see the Panerai influence. I love the lume on it.

    I like it. Pilot or field style watches are my favorite and that's a nice example. How's the bracelet?
