The pair of watches made their debut at this week’s Shanghai Grand Prix race. The BR-X1 RS 16 Skeleton Chronograph will form one part of a 250 limited edition batch whilst a more complicated BR-X1 RS16 Skeleton Chronograph Tourbillon arrives with just 20 pieces on offer.
The BR-X1 RS pieces have been named after the new R.S. 16 race cars for the 2016 season and will feature carbon fibre construction to fall in line with the advanced material construct of their Formula One car counterparts. Both versions come in wither a plain carbon fibre version or a more vibrant Renault yellow highlighted design with accompanying carbon fibre strap.
Given the exclusive nature of the watches, they will only be available for sale at select Grand Prix events throughout the season.
Team drivers Kevin Magnussen and Jolyon Palmer received their own engraved BR-X1 RS16 Skeleton Chronograph watches at the launch event in Shanghai’s picturesque Bar Rogue rooftop bar.
