Oris strengthens their partnership with Audi Sport in the WEC World Endurance Championship , a relationship that started in and issues a third limited edition chronograph.
In the new, 3rd installment in their limited edition Audi Sport series, Oris outfits their new chronograph watch with a "vertical countdown", an essential innovation on a circuit. The German team is to the automotive industry, what Oris is to the Swiss watchmaking industry; high-performance mechanics, precision engineering, and impeccable design style at an attainable price tag.
During the last day of Le Mans, Oris unveiled a new sports room dedicated to the solid time winner of this renowned race. Audi assumed two hybrid R18 prototypes, one of which eventually finished on the podium at the end of the race bearing the number 8.
This watch is encased in titanium and has a silver dial with luminous numerals, hour and minute hands. The chronograph has a large red central seconds hand counter with a 30 minute sub-dial counter at the 12 o'clock position, a hour sub-dial counter and date window at the 6 o'clock position and a linear small seconds indicator at the 9 o'clock position.
A tachymetric scale is displayed on the bezel to measure speed. Inside the watch beats a 25 jewel movement at 28, vph.
The watch comes with a black calfskin leather band with sporty perforated holes and white stitching. Like the first watch in this series it also contains 25 jewels and has a power reserve of about 48 hours.
