Oris and Nico Rosberg shop til they drop!

02.07.2008 - Oris and Nico Rosberg shop til they drop!

Ahead of the Canadian Grand Prix, Oris was joined on a special shopping trip by AT&T Williams Formula One team star Nico Rosberg. As official watch partner to the team, Oris arranged for Nico to visit two jewellers in central Montreal.

Wearing his trusty TT3 Chronograph and Oris branded Williams team shirt, Nico visited the two jewellers to help promote the new additions to the Oris Motor Sport collection.

Nico was treated by staff to a behind the scenes tour of the two shops and even had his watch checked by a technician from the Oris approved service centre. After giving interviews to both Canadian and German television stations who were covering the event, it was time for Nico to meet his public.

He spent time chatting with customers, signing autographs and even helped staff to sell a TT3 Formula Gold Limited Edition!

Hundreds of customers visited the stores during Nico’s visit and many left with watches – as well as with signed shirts, caps and postcards.

Rolf Studer, Region Manager for Oris Canada, commented: “It’s fantastic that Nico was able to join us today and the two events have been a great success. If ever Nico decided to give up his day job as a Formula One driver, I’d have no hesitation in employing him as a salesman!”
