The Bell & Ross Space 3 Ref: 300-S 00977

The Bell & Ross Space 3 chronograph was designed for space mission pilots.So the object and emphasis when being designed was on readability and the shape and form of the watch case, crown and chronograph pushers. These were therefore set into the case so nothing protrudes.

The crown in our opinion and those in the know will agree is a piece of engineering genius! It is hidden by what Bell &Ross call the “T-Crown System”. It is attached to a toothed telescopic extension which can be protracted thus allowing the crown to be unscrewed.

Once the crown is screwed back down, the extension can be fully retracted back into the case where it automatically locks flush into position through a spring loaded system to give the watch a flush outside edge to the case again, as can be seen in our photographs. We think this gives the watch an overall sleek, simple and sexy look that is great for what could be perceived as an otherwise slightly busy looking chronograph like so many others on the market. Be a little different and try the Bell & Ross Space 3, we are sure you will love it!

The watch has a self winding (automatic) movement,with 42 hour power reserve, 25 jewels, “28,000 Alternations Per Hour” and the movement is also adjusted to 4 (four) positions. It is also antimagnetic and shock proof.

The watch also features hours, minutes, and seconds, a 3 dial chronograph (60 second, 30 minute and 12 hour counters) day with date and inner tachometer scale. The day date is quick set and hack time for accurate setting.

The case, pushers, crown and bracelet with deployment clasp are all brushed stainless steel.

The watch when made was rated to a depth of 200m and will be pressure tested when serviced to be sure.

The matt black dial is anti-glare and anti UV treated with white index markers by Arabic numerals, white hour, minute and subsidiary seconds hands, all coated in luminescent paint and then all the chronograph hands are in red making it possible to distinguish the chronograph functions from the time functions.

All then finished under an anti-glare treated convex sapphire crystal.

The original steel bracelet is full length as it comes with spare links that were previously taken out buy the last owner.

The watch is in an overall excellent condition with microscopic signs of wear hopefully reflected in our photographs!

The watch comes with inner and outer box, instructions and the metallic credit card style guarantee which is undated.

Bell & Ross are no longer making the Space 3 and to find one in this condition is unbelievable. A definite future classic!
