The Oris Darryl O'Young Limited Editions
Darryl O’Young is the world’s most successful Chinese motor racing driver. Born in Vancouver, Canada in 1980 he began racing go-karts aged eight. He later raced with Formula Ford and Formula Renault in the USA before making the switch to GT cars and competing in the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia. In 2008 he won the Macau Grand Prix for the third time. In 2009 he became the first Chinese racing driver to compete for a full season in the FIA GT Championship. He drives two racing cars: the Porsche 911 Type 997 GT3 RSR and Porsche 911 Type 997 GT3 Cup 3.
Darryl wears the larger of the two Oris Darryl O’Young Limited Editions. With a 43.50mm case it is part of the Oris TT3 Collection and limited to 997 pieces – a nod to the Type 997 Porsche GT3 RSR Darryl drives. The watch has the first glass dial on an Oris watch, which has a wheel rim pattern inspired by the wheels of Daryl’s Porsche. The numerals are the same as those that appear on the dashboard of Darryl’s racing car. The Oris Darryl O’Young Limited Edition also comes with a smaller 41mm case – also limited to 997 pieces in reference to the Type 997 Porsche GT3 Cup 3 Darryl drives.
