Yours truly was given a chance to mingle with the rich and famous when I attended to launch of the Lifestyle Pop-up Store by Bell & Ross together with Cortina Watch which is now opened up until the 30 September 2016 at Level 1, Suria KLCC.
The well known French luxury timepiece brand
joined forces with the Renault Sport Formula One Team with their mutual
passion for mechanics, speed and
precision on a shared quest: the race against time.
Bell & Ross is now showcasing a range of core collection watches, including pieces unveiled at the international watch and jewellery industry show Basel World 2016 in celebration of the upcoming Malaysian Grand Prix.
The cocktail event I got the opportunity to attend was hosted by Bell & Ross and Cortina Watch and held at this Bell & Ross Pop-up Store in Suria KLCC today in the presence of Mr. Carlos-A. Rosillo, the CEO & Co-founder of Bell & Ross, Cortina Watch VIPs, guests, watch and sports enthusiast, celebrities and media.
It surely was an amazing experience especially getting to try on a watch with a 6 figure price tag which I doubt I can ever afford...but the watches were definitely exquisite as to be expected... and definitely desirable... these limited edition watches would be perfect for the discerning multi millionaire or billionaire who loves his watch collection...
On 28 September 2016, Renault Sport Formula One™ Team racing driver Kevin Magnussen will make a special appearance at the pop-up store at Suria KLCC for a Meet & Greet session at 5.00PM.
Fans looking forward to meet Magnussen can learn how you can win attractive prizes plus a photo opportunity and an autograph session with the Danish racing driver on Bell & Ross Watches facebook page.
Today at the Bell & Ross Pop-up Store, the limited edition collection of commemorative timepieces especially created for the partnership – the BRX1 RS16 was given the spotlight. This collection was exclusively available on the paddock at selected Grand Prix and now can be found at the Bell & Ross Pop-up Store in Suria KLCC, as well as other boutiques and retailers.

BR-X1 RS16 Skeleton Chronograph Tourbillion 20 pcs limited edition available....
Retail Price: RM691,000
BR-X1 RS16 Skeleton Chronograph and BR-X1 RS16 Skeleton Chronograph Tourbillion models were created to withstand extreme conditions, and are armoured, ingenious, robust and highly technical timepieces that stand out thanks to the innovative design of its 45mm multi-material case.
Crafted with materials such as grade 5 titanium and Carbone Forgé® – a high-tech composite material consisting of molded compressed carbon fibers and thermosetting resin – the BR-X1 watches are immensely light yet incredibly strong, built to withstand any impact a driver would face on the racing track.
As a nod to the Renault Sport Formula One Team, both timepieces feature yellow rubber accents on the crown and rocker push buttons in the very same shade associated with the team.
The BR-X1 RS16 watches, named after the team’s new R.S. 16 race car for the 2016 Formula One season, were envisioned to be extreme versions of the watchmaker’s iconic BR01 just as Formula One racing cars are the ultimate version of a car.
“We are very happy with the collaboration with Renault Sport Formula One™ Team so far, and certainly are look forward to seeing them in action at the Malaysian Grand Prix,” said Carlos A. Rosillo, CEO of Bell & Ross. “Renault Sport Formula One™ Team and Bell & Ross share a common goal of pushing the limits of mechanics in a Race Against Time, and our partnership is symbolic of what can be achieved when precision and speed come together to form a synergy that could only lead to victory.”
