Bell & Ross Limited Edition Timepieces Celebrate Formula One Singapore


This September, fans geared up for the recent Formula One weekend in Singapore, but there’s another race brewing up – the Race Against Time, that is, as French luxury timepiece brand Bell & Ross rolled out a pop-up store at the heart of The Paragon.

The collaboration with the Renault Sport Formula One Team as Official Watch Sponsor, the pop-up featured some limited edition timepieces that offered a fitting combination of speed, mechanics and precision from September 9 – 18. Also on display were select pieces from their core collection range, which made an appearance at the BaselWorld 2016.

To commemorate the 10-day campaign, Renault Sport Formula One Team driver Jolyon Palmer made a special appearance on September 15, where fans were invited to compete with Palmer in the Batak Speed Challenge, where the winner received a Bell & Ross watch.

Among the limited edition watches on display, the BR-X1 RS16 watches were crafted with the vision that they would be extreme versions of the watchmaker’s iconic BR01, in line with how you might imagine the Formula One racing cars as the ultimate version of a car.

Indeed, the BR-X1 RS16 Skeleton Chronograph and BR-X1 RS16 Skeleton Chronograph Tourbillion models can resist extreme conditions, right from their robust amour and highly technical ingenuity, as with their innovative 45mm multi-material case. Immensely feather-light with an impeccably strong built, the BR-X1 watches are crafted with grade 5 titanium and the high-tech composite Carbone Forgé® that could withstand the kind of impact a driver could possibly face on a racing track. Of course, what’s a collaboration with the Renault Sport Formula One Team without their signature shade, interpreted in the gorgeous yellow rubber accents on the crown and rocker push buttons?

While the pop-up store is no longer, the limited edition commemorative timepieces are also available at selected retailers as well as Bell & Ross boutiques.

Only 250 pieces of the limited edition BR-X1 RS16 Skeleton Chronograph and and 20 of the BR-X1

RS16 Skeleton Chronograph Tourbillion watches are available worldwide.
