Oris – Williams Engine Date
The love story between Oris and motor sports goes back to the 70s and has now been sealed by a partnership with British Formula 1 team Williams. The pairing has produced a new watch with a classic name: Williams Engine Date.
The dial of the timepiece is reminiscent of Williams’ racing cars. The partly openwork black and grey dial has several levels and its central minute track is inspired by a car’s dashboard with figures positioned horizontally. The blue splashes on the central seconds hand and date display at 6 are the colour of the team logo.
The self-winding Oris 733 calibre in the 42mm steel case fuels luminescent hands tracking the hours and minutes along an hour rim with baton markers and two large Arabic numerals (3 and 9).
