ORIS presents extravagant salute to spirit of Williams F1 Team

Posted on December 19, 2015 at 11:52 AM by / 0

Swiss watchmaker Oris, celebrates the winning spirit of the Williams Formula One team, with their new Oris Williams Collection, which was introduced to the Middle East by Brand Ambassador and Formula One star, Valterri Bottas in Abu Dhabi recently.

The Oris Williams Collection is a new collection of motor sport watches produced in honour of one of the most iconic teams in Formula 1, which is sponsored by the brand. For the first time an entire collection has been dedicated to bring the synergies between the two partners to life. The new watches have been developed to reflect the innovation and professionalism of the Williams F1 Team and the speed, power and aerodynamics of its cars.

There will be two base models in the collection – the 42mm stainless steel Oris Williams Day Date and the 44mm stainless steel Oris Williams Chronograph. Both models feature an all-new case shape, designed to mirror the silhouette of a Williams F1 car. The case tapers like the profile of the car, while the integrated lugs recall the shape of the nose cone. The result is a dynamic watch design that creates the feeling of speed.

The designs also carry a number of clever touches that carry the spirit of a Williams F1 car. The crown has been engineered to resemble a wheel from the car’s gearbox, while the chronograph sub-dials all reset to a zero mark positioned at 8 o’clock, like the needles on dashboard instrument panels found on historic Williams F1 racing cars. The Day Date model is available with a dial in black and the traditional blue of the Williams F1 Team. The chronograph has a black dial, and the sub-dial and small second hands are finished in blue.

Oris only makes mechanical watches, and both the Oris Williams Day Date and Oris Williams Chronograph are powered by automatic movements visible through sapphire crystal case backs that reveal the iconic Oris Red Rotor, the symbol of Oris’s High-Mech watchmaking philosophy. Each watch will come with either an articulated stainless steel bracelet or a rubber strap.
