Bell & Ross - BR-X1 RS 17 unique piece for Only Watch

Bell & Ross BR-X1 RS 17 unique piece for Only Watch

For the charity auction, Bell & Ross is offering the lucky future owner of this unique piece a unique experience.

Bell & Ross and the Renault Sport Formula One™ Team, two prestigious French brands that share the same values and the same passion for the king of motor sports, are delighted to partner for this new auction. As the official watchmaking partner of the Renault Sport Formula One™ Team paddock, Bell & Ross has designed, the BR-X1 RS17 Only Watch, specially for the occasion. This exclusive piece integrates the latest technological advances and state of the art materials. It boasts all the elements essential to a chronograph watch designed for racing drivers. Highly sophisticated, its skeleton mechanism allows its gears to be admired from behind the grey-tinted sapphire crystal. The skeleton chronograph movement combines haute horlogerie finishes and extreme lightness. The instrument features an innovative design, with a carbon case protected by a "belt" made from high-tech ceramic and rubber to act as a guard. 

The dial is dressed in the colours of the on-board instruments of the Renault R.S.17 race car. The "rocker" type push-buttons, used for activating the chronograph function, allow a great accuracy. For the best grip, the pushers are done in high-tech ceramics, capped with yellow rubber. The bezel features a tachymeter scale, a measuring device used to calculate race speeds.

As well as acquiring this unique model, the lucky bidder will be invited to experience the competition from within the paddock, at the last race of the championship in Abu Dhabi at the end of November. The guest will be welcomed by the Renault team and shown round the paddocks, meeting the team's drivers receiving the gloves of Nico Hülkenberg, that he wore during the race.

Driven by its ongoing quest for new challenges and a passion for performance and precision, Bell & Ross is underlining its support by participating in the Only Watch charity auction for the fifth consecutive time, with a model guaranteed to appeal to lovers of sports watches.
