Bell & Ross, Seiko, Vianney Halter, Azimuth and Zenith are among the brands that have jumped onto the Instrument watch bandwagon. Bell & Ross has arguably brought the look to the forefront, with many brands such as Invicta and Debaufre (formerly Steinhart) copying the style of their popular Bell & Ross BR01 series Instrument watches.

The instrument style dials know no limits as far as prices go, as cheap as several hundred for a Seiko or up to half a million for the new Zenith Defy Zero G Tourbillion! Like it or not, the instrument style dials are popping up everywhere, and I’m still not sure what to think of them.
