In the world of Formula One, the difference between victory and utter defeat all comes down to the split second decisions made by the driver and the immense amount of team work required to put together agile and responsive machines.
Drawing on their expertise in crafting ultra-functional tool watches for professionals, it is no wonder that French-Swiss watchmaker Bell & Ross has teamed up with Renault F1 Team to act as the official watch partner for the fourth year in a row.
This year Bell & Ross has offered two new references: the BRV3-94 R.S.19 and BR03-94 R.S.19, each are limited editions of 999 pieces.
In terms of looks, this year’s Renault F1 Team ‘R.S.19’ watch collection bring about the same ‘engine’ and styling language of prior years while tuning them up with dials made of carbon fiber.
Sporting the signature Renault F1 Team’s yellow and black colours, the new R.S.19 collection appear to be ripped straight right out of the cockpit of a F1 car.
The BRV3-94 R.S.19 sports the classic circular case of Bell & Ross’ Vintage collection which is tuned-up to 43mm ‘XL’ proportions. Meanwhile, the BR03-94 R.S.19 features the utilitarian 42mm across square of Bell & Ross’ instrument watches.
Regardless which one you choose, these pair of carbon-dialed chronographs are more than capable of keeping in time with Daniel Ricciardo and Nico Hülkenberg’s steering wheels.
The BRV3-94 R.S.19 will retail at MYR19,000 for the carbon fiber effect calfskin strap and MYR20,400 for the steel bracelet. The BR03-94 R.S.19 on the other hand will retain at MYR 27,1000. Both timepieces are expected to be available by Quarter 2 of 2019.
