Watchmaking and motor racing share much in common. They both rely on innovative materials and share the same passion for mechanical engineering, speed, performance and sports design. In 2016, in its permanent quest for new universes to explore, Bell & Ross made its first foray onto the race track by becoming the official watch partner of the Renault Sport Formula 1 team. The Renault Sport team and Bell & Ross are on the same quest for excellence, striving for speed and mechanical precision, and this combination of expertise is taking watchmaking to another level.
Last weekend saw encouraging performances from German driver Nico Hulkenberg and Spanish driver Carlos Sainz from the Renault Sport Fomula 1 team, with both of them racing against time in one of the most challenging circuits on the Formula 1 calender. Bell & Ross is proud to equip both drivers with the latest R.S.18 Collection high performance watches, inspired by the chassis of the racing car.
Naturally, the three Bell & Ross R.S.18 watches are three mechanical chronographs, the kind of functions in the world of motor racing. It measures short intervals of time, embodying the notion of speed and accuracy.
