Part of a limited edition series of only 500 pieces, the new Bell & Ross BR 03-94 RS17 honors the watchmaker’s partnership with the Renault Sport Formula One Team. The F1 team has recently launched its new R.S.17 racing car, at an event held at London’s Royal Horticultural Halls, with the team’s drivers, Jolyon Palmer and Nico Hulkenberg, being also able to glance upon the fresh and super cool-looking BR03-94 RS17.
In these last couple of years Bell & Ross has become a leading benchmark in the world of aviation and now the famous brand has decided to join the highly exclusive world of Formula 1. And Renault Sport Formula One was more than willing to welcome them into their universe, ruled by extreme performance, speed, not to mention mechanical accuracy.
Pushing the limits has always been a goal of anyone worth calling successful, and that’s just what an innovative watchmaker should look towards. Showing off a 42 mm matte black ceramic case, with an AR-coated sapphire crystal, this wonderful watch could even handle 100-meter deep waters, although we don’t know why.
The Swiss automatic Bell & Ross caliber BR301 with 37 jewels, 28,800 vph and a power reserve of 42 hours, will help drivers keep track of their progress. All work and no play makes anyone dull, which is why this watch also comes with a carbon fiber dial and attached to a woven black rubber and ultra-resilient black synthetic fabric, with a black PVD pin buckle. Ready, set, go!
