Grail Watch 4: Bell & Ross x Alain Silberstein Black Ceramic Trilogy "Krono 22"

The latestGrail Watch is not, in fact, one watch. It's a trilogy. Three watches that tell a story about shared passions, people and above all, the essence of design. Itmarks our second collaboration with Alain Silberstein and, this time, we've teamed up with Bell & Ross.
Krono 22 is ,unsurprisingly, the chronograph of the set, and it is made for both visual maximalists and those who love a legible chrono. On offer here is a grand total of five of Silberstein’s famous Bauhaus-inspired hands, thered circle for the hours and blue arrow for the minutes is of a design sharedwith the Klub 22, but there’s also a yellow S-shaped hand which serves as the chronograph seconds indicator.
In addition, a blue triangle serves as the indicator for the chronograph 30-minute counter, with a yellow arrow for the continuous seconds indicator. This theme is echoedin the pushers themselves, which are inlaid with a yellow lacquered rectanglefor the start/stop function and a blue rectangle for the reset function. The crown features Silberstein’s signature red triangle.
Powered bythe automatic caliber BR.CAL-301, the Krono22 is made in 100 examples.

Shades & Shapes

It's easy to tell when Alain Silberstein has been involved in a watch design — his bold primary colors and distinctive geometric forms are unmissable, and that's exactly the case here. Even the crown features a red lacquered triangle, while the pushers are in yellow and blue.

The Strongest Square

The 42mm black ceramic serves as the perfect canvas for this collaboration. Not only is it pure of line, it is also the first time Silberstein has made a watch from the virtually scratch-proof material.

Up All Night

The bright tones of this chronograph don't fade when the sun goes down — the luminous material is applied in white, blue and yellow shades ensuring the party doesn't stop.

Fit ForPurpose

Bell & Ross built its reputation on purpose-built watches, and the Krono 22 is no exception. The ceramic case is rated to 100 meters, is powered by the automatic BR.CAL-301 with 42 hours of power reserve and comes with both a black rubber
strap and an additional fabric option.
