This timepiece combines excellence in watchmaking and design.
The BR 03-92 RED RADAR CERAMIC presents an innovative display, both figurative and playful.
Its display breaks the traditional watchmaking codes by revisiting the graphics of an aircraft control radar. The time can be read via a system of rotating discs, combined with an analogue hand. The dial is topped with a red sapphire crystal. It adopts the BR 03 case, which is 42 mm in diameter and use ceramic. This high-tech material is scratch-resistant, yet soft to the touch.
The system comprises two concentric discs which fuse with the dial. For this innovative display, two ultra-light discs had to be designed to preserve the power reserve. These very robust discs will not deform and they maintain a constant parallelism. Our watchmakers worked hard to ensure that the precision of the watch movement was not altered by friction.
The two rotating discs on this ground-breaking display take the place of the conventional hands. The two stylised planes replace the traditional arrows. The passenger plane travels on the large, outermost disc, showing the hours. The fighter plane flies on the smaller-diameter disc, nearer the centre of the dial, showing the minutes. A slim, analogue central hand accompanies these two planes, showing the seconds. The passenger plane travels more slowly than the fighter plane, as it does in reality. The former completes one lap of the dial in 12 hours, the latter in sixty minutes.
