Oris pays tribute to 30 years of F1 racing

06.03.2008 - Oris pays tribute to 30 years of F1 racing

Last week in London, shortly before the unveiling of the new AT&T Williams racing car, a very special presentation took place. Ulrich Herzog – CEO and President of Oris - presented the Oris TT3 Formula Gold Limited Edition to Sir Frank Williams.

The TT3 Formula Gold Limited Edition has been designed to commemorate 30 years of the Williams Formula One team, and only 300 pieces have been produced. The Formula Gold has an exclusive 18 carat rose gold case and is specially engraved with the Williams logo on the case back.

After the presentation Sir Frank Williams said: “We are honoured that Oris have celebrated the 30th anniversary of the team in this way and we are indebted to them for this magnificent gesture and their continuing support.”

Ulrich Herzog said: “It’s a great honour for me to be able to present such a special Oris watch to these pioneers of motor racing. Just as they live and breathe motor racing, we dedicate great time, effort and passion to creating our watches. I’ve always felt that Oris and Williams are very similar in our approach to what we do, and this evening has only underlined that fact. I hope that the Formula Gold watches will bring the team good luck for their 30th year in Formula One.”
