The MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula OneTM Team has already clinched the 2014 FIA Formula One World Constructors’ Championship*. The early victory before the end of the season demonstrates how values such as precision craftsmanship, performance engineering and the search for excellence ultimately reward a truly great team.
Each week we showcase a number of high-end watches and while they may be within the budget of a lucky few Watchuseek members, for the most part, the boring unavoidables such as mortgage, car loan, college fees, groceries and taxes ensure that for many the watches remain agonizingly out of reach.

The Bell & Ross BR-X1 Skeleton takes its inspiration from 21st century fighter planes whose futuristic cockpits employ high-tech materials.

Its 45 mm square case is made from grade 5 titanium sporting a high-tech band made from ceramic and rubber.
