The BR 01 Carbon Fiber Phantom watch is inspired by the B-117 stealth fighter planes of the same name. There is a tweak with this particular edition, however. It features the fiber-reinforced polymer that is most often associated with race cars. Unlike its BR 01 Phantom predecessor, this design has much more going on. Nevertheless, it is still strikingly masculine.

Designed by Bell & Ross, the BR 01 Carbon Fiber Phantom watch is part of their Aviation collection. This luxurious chronograph boasts 100 meter water resistance, a screw-down crown, photo-luminescent hands, sapphire crystal glass and, of course, automatic Swiss mechanical movement.

The use of carbon fiber may not be new for this chronograph company, but the BR 01 Carbon Fiber Phantom watch uses it much more extensively than any of its brothers. Stats for Stealth Plane Chronographs Trending: Older & Mild
