Lot Essay

Bell & Ross and the Renault Sport Formula One™ Team, two prestigious French brands that share the same values and the same passion for the pinnacle of motor sports, are delighted to partner for this new auction. As the official watchmaking partner of the Renault Sport Formula One™ Team, Bell & Ross has designed the BR-X1 RS17 Only Watch especially 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 Sport Formula One™ Team R.S.17 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.

EXPERIENCE
As well as acquiring this unique model, the lucky bidder and a guest will be invited to join the Renault Sport Formula One™ Team, at the last race of the championship in Abu Dhabi at the end of November.

The guest will be welcomed by the team, will meet the drivers, and receive the race gloves worn by Nico Hülkenberg during the Grand Prix.
