Frank Sir Williams is a giant in the field of racing. His achievements are great and brilliant in the whole sports world. With his strong will and pioneering spirit, Williams has become one of F1’s most successful teams-winning 7 driver championships and 9 team championships in history. In 2003, Oris joined the Williams team as the official timer partner. Today, Oris is the longest-standing sponsor of Williams.
This year, it has been 40 years since the Williams team debuted at the F1 Spanish Grand Prix in 1977. To commemorate this historical moment and pay tribute to Sir Frank, Oris used the brand’s iconic racing watch Chronoris as the design model to create the Oris Williams 40th Anniversary Limited Edition watch.
Oris Williams 40th Anniversary Limited Edition watch pays tribute to Williams team based on the brand’s iconic Chronoris
The 40mm stainless steel case inherits the ‘abalone shell’ shape of the original Chronoris watch from 1970, which is quite characteristic of the times. The watch is driven by a self-winding chronograph movement, with a central chronograph seconds hand, 30 minutes above the dial and 12 hours below.
Oris watchmakers pay tribute to the Williams team in many details: the central chronograph seconds hand and tachymeter circle are painted with the team’s signature blue; the bottom cover is engraved with Williams’ logo and the 40th anniversary. The watch comes with a brown leather strap, a black rubber strap or a stainless steel bracelet.
With the Williams 40th Anniversary Limited Edition Watch, Oris not only paid tribute to the team’s milestones, but also brought Chronoris with special significance to his tablemates. Chronoris was born in 1970 and was the first chronograph in Oris history. It was designed for racers, thus opening up the indissoluble bond between the brand and motorsport. The unique case shape allows people to remember Oris and remember the era when racing cars were all the rage.
