Bell+Ross Renault F1 Collection

Let’s be homnest, F1 is dull now. But some of the cars look amazing and we are always suckers for motorsport themed watches here at NWC mag.

The new Bell & Ross chronographs feature white numbers on a black dial, with some typically Renault blue – bleu then, OK – around the edge.

Yes, we like what they did with the straps giving them that tyre tread pattern feel – very Chopard Mille Miglia. Limited to just 500 pieces btw for the collector market.

There is a super limited edition of just 50 titanium case models as well.

New Watches: TAG Indycar 500 Chronograph Features Brickyard Dial

The latest from the TAG press office, as an Indycar themed chrongraph model is launched. SPOILER ALERT – It’s a quartz.

To celebrate 16 years as the Official Timekeeper of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES and the 104th Indianapolis 500 race, TAG Heuer has unveiled a special-edition timepiece that honors its long-standing partnership with the premier league of open-wheel racing in North America. Known as one of the oldest automobile races and part of the famous “Triple Crown”, the Indy 500 is a 500-mile race held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Speedway, Indiana and is one of the most-attended single-day sporting events in the world.

Designed in collaboration with the INDYCAR team, the 43 mm Formula 1 Indy 500 2020 Special Edition chronograph represents the luxury watchmaker’s passion for the intensity and spirit of motor racing, with rich, eye-catching red accents including a brick motif on the dial to honor the Indy racetrack’s “The Brickyard” nickname and history.

The Indy 500 logo is displayed on the 6 o’clock subdial with “Indy 500” engraved in red on the ceramic bezel. The detailed black dial enhances the daring and sporty aesthetic of this model, and is complete with three azurage-patterned subdials: 3 o’clock permanent second indicator, 6 o’clock hour chronograph counter and 1/10th second chronograph counter embellished with the Indy 500 logo, and a 9 o’clock minute chronograph counter, with a date window at 4 o’clock.

The quartz-powered chronograph is presented on a durable black rubber strap to easily size and fit the watch over a racing suit. A road-tested endurance machine, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Indy 500 2020 Special Edition is water resistant to 200 meters and highly shock resistant.
