17.02.2011 - Two motor sport specialists, one philosophy
Oris and RUF Automobile – a connection that was created in motor sport heaven. With the RUF CTR3 Sports car, the engineers from Bavaria have created a masterpiece of technical craftsmanship. This is precisely what the Swiss Watch manufacturer has achieved with the Oris RUF CTR3 Chronograph.
The lightweight, aerodynamically shaped watch case reflects the car design and the dial is homage to the dashboard of the Porsche derivate. With a top class sports chronograph and tachymeter scale on the bezel, RUF fans can share their passion for fast cars not only on the race track, but on their wrists too. This watch is the perfect accessory for all motor sport aficionados. It is the result of two companies sharing a passion for sports cars, who have both achieved international success through a commitment to high performance. Made from the finest materials - titanium cases, carbon dials and fine leather straps - the Oris RUF CTR3 Chronograph comes in a special presentation set with a scale model of the CTR3 and a limited edition certificate. Just 3,000 RUF enthusiasts will be able to live the dream!
A special drive event was held at the high-speed Austrian Salzburgring, where both elements underwent the acid test. At speeds of up to 300 km/h and sliding conditions at the edge of control, the superfast RUF CTR3 revealed its true colours as a leader in the field of motor sport. Alois Ruf, Executive Chairman of RUF Automobile said: “Despite the harsh driving conditions, I have been touched by the precision of the Oris timepiece and the great functionality achieved by its easy handling, the clarity of the watch face, and the comfort of the strap. The Oris-RUF watch definitely has the substance to suit a real motor sport hero.”
