The new Bell & Ross timepiece befits the racetrack and beyond
Bell & Ross invites you to enter the world of racing with its newest timepiece, the BR126 Renault Sport 40th Anniversary

In celebration of Renault's 40th anniversary in Formula 1, Bell & Ross unveils the BR126 Renault Sport 40th Anniversary—a handsome vintage tribute to R.S.01, the car brand's first ever single seater from 1977.

A bold vision in black, yellow and steel, the BR126 Renault Sport 40th Anniversary takes inspiration from the colour codes of the Renault Sport Formula One Team. The black on yellow design ensures an optimal reading of the chronograph function, while paying homage to the hatched decoration of Formula 1 in the 70s.

Both the dial and caseback also adorn the historic Renault logo from the era and checkered flag from the finish line. While the aesthetic makes it a classic, the chronograph movement renders it a contemporary masterpiece. This robust model is driven by the automatic mechanical Calibre BR-Cal.301.

The BR126 Renault Sport 40th Anniversary is limited to just 170 pieces—the number of Renault's victories in Formula 1. It retails at RM18,800, now available at Bell & Ross boutiques and selected authorised watch retailers in Malaysia.
