Bell & Ross the official partner of the Renault Sport Formula One Team since their return to Formula One last year, as a constructor unveils its newest timepiece: the BR126 Renault Sport 40th Anniversary.
This watch is an invitation to get into the shoes of the professionals who work under extreme conditions. It is not only an instrument designed to support them in their missions, but an ally at all times. This vintage model immerses us into the world of racing by taking its inspiration from the first Formula 1 races’ DNA. : its 41 mm case is made of satin-finish steel and its black and yellow dial are a reference to the colors of the Renault Sport Formula One Team. The timer is black on a yellow strip, reminiscent of the hatched decoration of Formula 1 in the Seventies, and guarantees an optimal reading of the chronograph function. This complication, invented for measuring short lengths of times, is the queen function in motorsport. It allows the performance of racing cars to be measured with great precision. The colors, the ultra-domed crystal, the rubber bracelet and the shape of the horns reinforce the vintage look of this piece.
The historic logos of Renault from the Seventies and the checkered flag from the finish line appear on the dial of this unique timepiece and are also engraved on the bottom of the case.
