French timekeepers Bell & Ross have once again joined forces with fellow countrymen and Formula 1 team Renault on another collection of limited performance watches dubbed the R.S.20.
Those with a love of racing, horology and everything French can snap up four new Bell & Ross Renault F1 models ranging from ultra-rare flying tourbillons to racing editions of their staple sports watches such as the BR03.
The former is a 42mm titanium piece clad with a ceramic case and bi-directional PVD bezel on a skeleton dial. We weren’t kidding when we said it was rare – limited to just 20 pieces, in fact – and priced to match. An eye-watering AU$270,000.
The non-tourbillon version of the BR-X1 watch is one of a larger pool of 250 pieces and is more modestly priced at AU$32,000.
Our favourite of the R.S.20 lineup has to be the BR03-94, a classic Bell & Ross matte black ceramic shape on a perforated black rubber strap. The final watch in the collection is the BRV3-94, available on either steel or calfskin rubber.
Pre-orders are now open, with deliveries expected towards the end of the month. See more at bellross.com.
