Bell & Ross, one of the unique brands of the watch industry known with its aviation inspired designs, is under the loupe with the latest model dedicated to the brand partnership with F1 Renault Sport Team; BR03-94 RS17.
We have featured on our pages last year the Bell & Ross BR-X1-RS16 model, designed by the French origin brand for the F1 Renault Sport Team brand partnership. The French duo, who will continue their brand partnership in 2017, came together once again for the new racing car RS17, which is scheduled to appear on Formula 1 tracks this season.
We have previously mentioned the Bell & Ross BR-X1-RS16 model which was also created in collaboration with the F1 Renault Sport Team. The French duo, who continues their brand partnership in 2017, came together once again for the new racing car RS17, which is scheduled to appear on Formula 1 tracks this season.
The model is offered in a matt black ceramic case measuring 42mm in diameter. Sharing the brand’s BR-03 platform, the case sports an AR coated scratch resistant sapphire crystal on the front side. 100M water resistant case features exclusive details inspired by F1 like the yellow colored (official color of F1 Renault Sport Team) start/stop pusher and the black winding crown decorated with a red ring.
The dial is made of carbon fiber which is one with its wide use in motorsports. The dial provides a sporty look with the accents finished in yellow, red and green tones which are also the colors used in the F1 racing car. The hands and indices are filled with SuperLuminova phosphor material in order to provide optimum legibility at dark environments. The date window is located between 4 and 5 o’clock.
The model is powered by the Caliber Ref. BR301. Self-winding movement beats at 4Hz and offers 42 hours of power reserve when fully wound. In addition to its time keeping function, the movement offers a Bi-Compax lay out chronograph and a date display.
Bell & Ross BR 03-94 RS17 comes with a black rubber strap made of extra durable elastomeric material. In order to match the black dominant color palette, the strap is secured with a stainless steel buckle with black PVD coating.
Bell & Ross BR03-94 RS17 is offered with a limited span of 500 units only.
