For watchmaking enthusiasts, Bell & Ross is a leading brand in regards to design. To create the R.S.20 collection, the design studio started by researching the “topic” to give form to their inspiration.
This year, the collection drew its inspiration from different sources. These included the F1® car for the Renault 2020 team and the R.S.2027 concept car.

This is B&R’s round “tool watch”. This chronograph is designed in a
limited edition of 999 pieces. Its large case is made from steel. It is
equipped with a bidirectional rotating bezel with a 60-minute scale
which can be used to measure short periods of time.
The dial houses the 12 numerals present on the dials of sports watches.
The typography is the same as the one used by the Renault F1® Team.
The minute track is split into small black and white chequered squares
which symbolise the finish line flag used in motor racing. The yellow
hands display the different functions of the chronograph.
The back of this model is engraved with “Formula 1® Renault R.S.20”.
