The watch is an invitation to get behind the wheel of a racing car and experience the extreme sensation felt by the driver, for whom a watch is not only a tool, but also an ally at each and every moment of the race. This Vintage BR V2-94 R.S.18 model immerses us in the world of motor racing by adopting Formula 1 racing codes. It features a 41mm case in satin-finished steel, a carbon fiber dial (a highly-prized material in the world of high-end motoring) and black and yellow in reference to the colors of the Renault Sport Formula One Team. Linked by the values of high precision and excellence, the partnership between Bell & Ross and the Renault Sport Formula One Team is a continuous source of inspiration and motivation for the watch brand.
The BR V2-94 R.S.18 has a yellow internal minute track and two counters, one in red for optimal legibility of the chronograph function. This complication, invented to measure short periods of time, is the king of motor sports functions, since it enables the performance of vehicles on the track to be measured with great accuracy. The bezel also features a tachymeter scale which allows a car’s speed to be instantly calculated over a given distance. This chronograph model evokes the sporting world of race tracks and paddocks, with its numerals adopting the typography used for the Renault Sport Formula One Team. It is powered by a Swiss mechanical caliber with automatic winding. The sapphire caseback bears a metallized depiction of the Renault car and its serial number.
The BR V2-94 R.S.18 is available with a micro-perforated calfskin strap with carbon fiber effect and a yellow lining, or a bracelet in satin-finished steel.
