Oris is marking its long-standing partnership with the Williams Racing Formula 1 Team by unveiling the Oris Williams FW41 Limited Edition, a watch inspired by the 2018 Williams FW41 race car.
The F1 season is approaching its climax and is heading to the Americas next month with races in Austin, Texas, Sao Paulo in Brazil and Mexico City.
The Oris watch’s lightweight carbon fiber case and dial are made using a technique borrowed from Williams that’s unique to watchmaking – the middle section of the case weighs just 7.2 grams.
Its chronograph counters are painted in the blue of the Williams Racing Formula 1 Team and reset to a zero point at 8 o’clock, chosen in homage to the instrument panels of historic Williams racing cars.
Only 410 pieces will be made, marking Williams’ 41st season in F1.
The watches come in an oversized 44mm carbon fibre and titanium case with black DLC plating housing an Oris Cal. 774 movement.
They go on sale this month priced at the equivalent of CHF 4,350.
