Bell & Ross for ONLY Watch

It's time once again for the ONLY Watch auction.  This is an event that takes place every other year to help further the research of and eventual cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Several well-known brands contribute a unique piece to aid this very worthy cause, and this is what will be up for bids from Bell & Ross:

And as they are doing a good deed, I'll let Bell & Ross talk about it in their own words:

This year, for the Only Watch charity auction, Bell & Ross is offering thrill-seeking fans and collectors of fine watches a unique experience: the chance to get a first-hand look behind the scenes at one of the foremost motor racing competition. 

Bell & Ross and the Renault Sport Formula One™ Team, two prestigious French brands that share the same values and the same passion for the pinnacle of motor sports, are delighted to partner for this new auction. As the official watchmaking partner of the Renault Sport Formula One™ Team, Bell & Ross has designed the BR-X1 RS17 Only Watch specially for the occasion. This exclusive piece integrates the latest technological advances and state of the art materials. It boasts all the elements essential to a chronograph watch designed for racing drivers.

Highly sophisticated, its skeleton mechanism allows its gears to be admired from behind the grey-tinted sapphire crystal. The skeleton chronograph movement combines haute horlogerie finishes and extreme lightness. The instrument features an innovative design, with a carbon case protected by a "belt" made from high-tech ceramic and rubber to act as a guard.

The dial is dressed in the colors of the on-board instruments of the Renault Sport Formula One™ Team R.S.17 car. The "rocker" type push-buttons, used for activating the chronograph function, allow a great accuracy. For the best grip, the pushers are done in high-tech ceramics, capped with yellow rubber. The bezel features a tachymeter scale, a measuring device used to calculate race speeds.

As well as acquiring this unique model, the lucky bidder will be invited to join the Renault Sport Formula One™ Team, at the last race of the championship in Abu Dhabi at the end of November. The guest will be welcomed by the team, meets the drivers and also receive the race gloves worn by Nico Hülkenberg, for the Grand Prix.

Driven by its ongoing quest for new challenges and a passion for performance and precision, Bell & Ross is underlining its support by participating in the Only Watch charity auction for the fifth consecutive time, with a model guaranteed to appeal to lovers of sports watches.
