If you haven’t already heard, Renault F1 Team has ceased to exist. Instead, Renault is continuing its F1 career as Alpine F1 Team starting in 2021. As a watchmaker that has been closely associated with Renault F1 Team for half a decade now, Bell & Ross is continuing as the official timekeeping partner for the newly minted F1 team.
To mark this continued collaboration between the two brands, Bell & Ross has launched a new Bell & Ross Alpine F1 Team Watch Collection, inspired by the world of Formula 1.
The Bell & Ross Alpine F1 Team Watch Collection comprises of three sporty and sophisticated avant-garde timepieces, namely, BR V3-04 A521, BR 03-94 A521, and BR-X1 A521. “A521” is, of course, in reference to the current Alpine A521 single-seater.
Each timepiece reflects the visual identity of Alpine F1 Team for this season, particularly the basic colors: blue, black and white. These watches will be worn throughout the 2021 season by the staff of the Alpine F1 Team.
The 43 mm round case Bell & Ross BR V3-94 A521 has a starting price of US$4,400 while the 42 mm square case Bell & Ross BR 03-94 A521 will sell for US$6,400. Both Bell & Ross BR V3-94 A521 and Bell & Ross BR 03-94 A521 has a limited run of 500 pieces.
Meanwhile, the holy grail of this collection is none other than the skeletal Bell & Ross BR-X1 A521. It commands a hefty US$21,500 and there are just 50 pieces to go around worldwide.
