Bell & Ross revealed BR03 RS17 during Renault Sport Formula One Team R.S.17 car livery launch.
Bell & Ross celebrates a continued partnership with Renault Sport Formula One Team. Since the brand is a watch partner, the best way to commemorate this partnership is by launching a new watch. Well, a little before the upcoming BaselWorld, the brand unveiled the new BR03-94 RS17. This watch will also be part of a trilogy launching at the BaselWorld fair.

Guests were invited to the event held at London’s Royal Horticultural Halls. The debut of the new racing car is a particularly exciting announcement as Renault Sport Formula One Team are among the first teams to reveal their car this year. The Renault Sport Formula One Team drivers, Jolyon Palmer and Nico Hulkenberg, were in attendance and spoke to guests following the announcement. Bell & Ross CEO & Co-founder, Carlos-A. Rosillo welcomed guests of the brand introducing them to the new BR03-94 RS17.
A few facts about the partnership and the watch
In February 2016, in its permanent quest for new universes to explore, Bell & Ross made its first foray into the racetracks by joining the highly exclusive world of Formula 1 and becoming the official watch partner of Renault Sport Formula One Team.
The BR03-94 RS17 design, inspired by Formula 1, brings together the latest technological advances and the most innovative materials used in the racing world.
This timepiece features a ceramic case designed to withstand shock and a sporty carbon fibre dial that makes it exceptionally well suited to the motor racing world. This lightweight, resilient material evokes the steering wheel of the Renault Sport Formula One Car (or R.S.17) car. The chronograph information features yellow anodized aluminium – the iconic colour used by Renault since they first entered Formula 1.
While the unveiling at the Renault Sport Formula One Team event was highly exciting, we are waiting to see the entire series of high-performance watches which will be revealed at Basel in just a few days!
