Bell & Ross cel­e­brated the re­turn of For­mula One to France with a spe­cial edi­tion Vin­tage BR V2-94 R.S.1.8. And in case you were think­ing that at least some of that name looks fa­mil­iar, it is be­cause B&R is the of­fi­cial watch part­ner of the Re­naultS­port F1 team. Therein is also a clue as to the de­sign in­spi­ra­tion be­hind the Vin­tage. The black rub­ber strap is stamped with the French flag, while black and yel­low de­sign de­tails res­onate with the de­sign of Re­nault’s rac­ing cars. Even the dial is per­for­mance-in­spired as it’s made from car­bon fi­bre. The R.S watch is lim­ited to 999 units and is avail­able in ei­ther a mi­cro-per­fo­rated calf­skin strap with a car­bon fi­bre ef­fect, or in bracelet form with satin-fin­ished pol­ished steel.
