Oris is pleased to announce the launch of the new Oris Williams series of motorsport watches. This series originates from one of the most iconic teams in the Formula 1 (World Formula One Championship) sport, and for the first time, the cooperation between the two is figurative. The innovation and professionalism of the F1 Williams team, the high power, high speed and outstanding aerodynamics of the car will be demonstrated in the design of the new watch.
The two basic models in the collection are the 42mm stainless steel Oris Williams Day Date and 44mm stainless steel Oris Williams Chronograph. The two watch cases have a new design that reflects the outline of the Williams F1 racing car, while also cleverly incorporating many details to demonstrate the spirit of the Williams F1 team. Similar to gearbox gears, the overall speed and sportiness of the model.
The Oris Williams Day Date offers two dial color schemes: black and Williams’ traditional blue. The Oris Williams Chronograph features a black dial, with sub-dial hands and second hands painted in blue.
Oris only manufactures mechanical watches, so Oris Williams Day Date and Oris Williams Chronograph are equipped with automatic mechanical movements. Through the sapphire glass case back, you can see the red Oscillator, the symbol of Oris’s advanced mechanical watchmaking concept. Both watches are equipped with an articulated stainless steel bracelet and a rubber strap.
The Oris Williams collection was created to pay tribute to the outstanding achievements of Sir Frank and his team. Williams driver Valtteri Bottas will wear a new watch to compete in the 2015 F1 Grand Prix. Last year he ranked fourth in the year-end driver standings. This series of watches will be officially launched in June 2015.
