Oris announces Spanish car rally sponsorship


Oris has been named official time partner and title sponsor of the Spanish Rally Clásico Isla Mallorca classic car rally for 2013, a meet dubbed a "haven" for car enthusiasts.

The event  takes place on the Spanish island of Majorca and has led to the creation of a limited edition watch, the Oris Calobra, named after the village where the rally takes place.

The watch has multi-piece stainless steel case, a bi-directional top ring in black ceramic and a "good grip" rubber coating that mimics car tyres.


The dial has a tachymeter scale directly assembled to the case, Super-LumiNova Arabic numerals and a special second display at 9 o’clock, which showcases a dashboard-inspired design.

The caseback is decorated in tribute to the Oris Rally Clásico Isla Mallorca, with an engraving of one of the most famous twists in the road during the rally, the Nus de sa Corbata, also known as the ‘tie knot’.

The watch is limited to 1,000 pieces, presented in a box with a folding rubber strap and a tool to change the bracelet.

The Rally Clásico Isla Mallorca has taken place in Calobra and the surrounding area since 2005. Oris also works with Formula 1 team Williams F1.
