Bell & Ross Launches New R.S.18 Collection With Renault Sport Formula One Team

Bell & Ross has a long-standing partnership with the Renault Sport Formula One Team, which was also the source of inspiration for the new R.S. 18 Collection. The eye-catching BR-X1 R.S.18 from this collection has many references to the world of Formula One, yet can at the same time only be taken for a Bell & Ross.

Limited to 250 pieces is its 45-millimeter case crafted from micro-blasted titanium with rubber inserts, which gives the watch a high-tech appearance. This is even further enhanced by the dial, which shows much of the skeletonized movement below it.

Colors are also playing a very important role with the design of this watch, and are of course related to the ones the Renault Sport Formula One Team uses. The BR-X1 R.S.18 is also one of the watches in which you can’t quite tell if form follows function or that it is the other way around. The watch is beautiful, yet at the same time also highly practical and legible. It features a chronograph complication along with a date function, and is water resistant up to 100 meters, while a black perforated rubber strap adds even further to its dynamic looks.

The author 0024 Editorial Team

When we started publishing our first high-end watch magazine in 1999, we had only one intention: increasing the popularity of high-quality mechanical watches. Now, many years later, this has not changed at all. In 2017 we have reinvented ourselves to serve our readers in a different and better way. Starting in 2017, the new 0024 is again better equipped to interact with the changing world of high-end watches. The new 0024 HORLOGES magazine (written in Dutch) will be at least a 200 pager: that’s twice the volume of our magazine in the old days.
