Celebrating its third year as a key partner of the Renault Sport Formula One Team, Bell & Ross introduced a BR-X1 Tourbillon RS18, inspired by the new Renault single-seat race car. A skillful blend of technology and engineering, the 45mm tourbillon chronograph features a case made of perforated titanium, making it extremely lightweight and strong. Powered by the hand-wound 282-part BR-CAL.283 caliber with flying tourbillon and monopusher columnwheel chronograph, the watch is equipped with four days of power reserve. The chronograph functions have yellow and red accents for easy readability. It is activated with rocker pushers reminiscent of the Formula One steering wheels. An open-worked dial enables viewing of the high-tech gear train. The new strap is made from black perforated rubber that offers extra breathability. Fitted with a sapphire caseback and featuring Super-LumiNova hands and markers, it is water resistant to 100 meters. Just 20 pieces will be made.
