Horology experts and timepiece enthusiasts can easily get lost in the moment thinking of the rich history, the brand, style and intricate detailing of a watch. Their hearts swell up at the sight of a rare timepiece, and even spend days and weeks contemplating on the pros & cons of their next watch buy. But let’s be real—not everyone is an expert; some just really need to tick off that “aesthetic” box in their watch must-haves checklist.
So when brands known to produce professional “tool” watches veer off from what’s expected of them, it creates an opportunity to reach out to the aesthetic-focused market. And if you ask us the best brand that have done such, we’ll definitely say Bell & Ross—especially when they released their BRS line, specifically the lovely BR-S Rose Gold Watch.

Looks are golden with the BR-S Rose Gold Watch (pun-intended). Its case is literally gold, but all other details are treasures too. There is an elegant contrast between the black dial and the rose gold case, numerals and other detailing, giving more depth to the elegance of the watch. The sleek shape of the case complements the thinness of the entire watch, housing its mechanical ETA Peseux 7001 caliber movement that is manually wound.
The original style of the line was already captivating, yet as in the true Bell & Ross fashion, upgrades and improvements are bound to be added. The recent 2016 release of the updated BR-S Rose Gold Watch gave us a less-cluttered dial with a classy circular window for the date. And beyond the classiness and luxurious look, you’ll find a reliable and efficient watch perfect for your daily OOTDs.
For a brand that’s been producing pieces for sports lovers, the design of the BR-S Rose Gold Watch had some fans confused. Although it is marketed as a unisex piece, many key details including the rose gold case exude femininity that some men are uncomfortable with. A safer choice for them would be the gray gold, but is the watch to blame if they can’t expand their fashion horizons?
