Oris confirms partnership with AT&T Williams

09.12.2008 - Oris confirms partnership with AT&T Williams

Oris is pleased to confirm the extension of our partnership agreement with the AT&T Williams Formula One team.

The agreement makes Oris one of the longest running sponsors of the team, and ensures that the Oris logo will appear in its familiar front wing end plate position on the FW31 in the 2009 Formula One Season.

The 2008 Formula One season saw Oris build on the international success of our Williams F1 Team collection watches. We also launched the TT3 Formula Gold Limited Edition, which was specially designed to celebrate 30 years of Williams F1.

In 2009 Oris is looking forward to the launch of the Kazuki Nakajima Day Date Limited Edition, which continues our tradition of producing limited edition watches for Williams F1 drivers.

Along with the continued association with the team, the two Williams drivers, Nico Rosberg and Kazuki Nakajima, will continue to be Oris ambassadors.

Ulrich Herzog, Executive Chairman of Oris SA commented: “We are pleased to confirm our continued partnership with the AT&T Williams team. The agreement is important to our business in the Oris world of motor sports watches and we are convinced of the value of the partnership we have developed over the past six years.”

Sir Frank Williams, the AT&T Williams Team Principal said, “I am delighted that Oris, along with Philips and Allianz, has recently extended its partnership agreement with the team. Oris can be assured of our best endeavours to return their confidence in the team with measurable commercial dividends next year."
