This time around, the French-based, Swiss-produced watchmaker has crafted four different timepieces at varying price ranges for fans of the Formula 1 racing team, building on previous collaborative models that share the same iconic Renault color scheme of black and yellow. Coming in at the entry-level is the BR V3-94 R.S. 20 sports chronograph, a more traditional racing watch measuring in at 43mm with two subdials, a rotating countdown bezel, and a black leather racing strap, which will set you back $4,400 USD. Next up is the similar BR 03-94 R.S. 20 square-case chronograph, boasting an almost identical dial as its more affordable counterpart but housed in the brand’s emblematic square casing. It comes with a price tag of $6,500 USD, and both models are limited to just 999 pieces.
Third in line is the BR-X1 R.S. 20, an automatic chronograph carrying an intricately skeletonized dial, with the same two-subdial configuration as the second-tier model but with an added countdown bezel on top of the 45mm titanium and ceramic case. This model is limited to only 250 units and will set you back $21,500 USD. Finally, and most special, is the BR-X1 Tourbillion R.S. 20, a hand-wound mono-pusher chronograph carrying a flying tourbillon at the 6 o’clock position, running at 21,600 vibrations per hour and boasting a power reserve of four days. Limited to only 20 made, this spotlight piece is going for $200,000 USD.
