Bringing together the latest technological advances as well as the most innovative materials used in the racing word today, the BR03-94 RS17 is clearly inspired by this prodigious partnership.
Taking its design cues from the steering wheel of the new 2017 single seater Renault Formula One car, whose coloured buttons each correspond to a specific function designed to allow the driver to gain more responsiveness, the BR03-94 RS17 is engineered with carbon, titanium and ceramic which makes it ideally suited to the world of Formula 1.
Perfect for motor racing enthusiasts, the BR03-94 RS17 features a shock resistant ceramic case, as well as a sporty carbon fibre dial and a high performance automatic chronograph movement. Staying true to Bell & Ross’ mission to create watches that demonstrate readability, performance, precision and reliability, the design of the BR03-94 RS17 is taken to the next level with flashes of yellow anodised aluminium – the iconic colour that has been associated with the Renault team since they entered the world of Formula 1 over 40 years ago.
