“Only Watch” is the most famous watch auction and has just wrapped up in Geneva setting a new record in support of the Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Bell & Ross is proud to have contributed to this success by offering, in its fifth participation, an exclusive model and a unique experience to motorsports aficionados and daredevils.
The BR-X1 Only Watch R.S. 17 relies on the latest technological advances and the most innovative materials. Its skeleton mechanism is highly sophisticated and allows its gears to be admired through the grey-tinted sapphire crystal. An innovative design watch with a case made of carbon protected by a high-tech ceramic “belt” and rubber that acts as a shield. Its dial borrows the color codes of the instruments in the single-seater Renault R.S.17 car.

By acquiring the Bell & Ross watch the happy donor received two tickets for a behind-the-scenes experience with the Renault Sport Formula One™ Team at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. He will also have the opportunity to meet the drivers and will receive the gloves that Nico Hülkenberg’s wore during the race.
The 7th edition of “Only Watch” auction was held in Switzerland, the epicenter of Haute Horlogerie, under the high patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco. All proceeds are donated in aid of research into the Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a genetic disease that causes progressive degeneration of all body muscles. Collectors, connoisseurs, philanthropists and VIPs came on Saturday to support this charity fundraiser and bid for the watch of their dreams.
