Oris and RUF – living the dream!

30.01.2009 - Oris and RUF – living the dream!

Oris has established a new partnership with German super car manufacturer RUF Automobile. The partnership underlines Oris’ involvement in the world of motor sport and also sees the launch of two spectacular new limited edition watches for 2009.

The Oris RUF CTR3 Chronometer is an exclusive watch available only to buyers of the RUF CTR3 – one of the world’s fastest road cars. The watch will form part of an exclusive package for the small number of people lucky enough to drive the CTR3, which is hand built and worth around 500,000 Euros! Each watch is engraved with the same chassis number as the car.

A second limited edition is also available – the Oris RUF CTR3 Chronograph comes in a special presentation set with a scale model of the CTR3 and limited edition certificate. Just 3,000 RUF enthusiasts will be able to live the dream – with a little help from Oris.

Both watches use the finest materials: titanium cases, carbon dials, and fine leather straps.

A special preview event to launch the two new watches was held at the RUF Factory in Germany last week. Guests also had the opportunity to see the CTR3 being built.

Ulrich Herzog, Executive Chairman of Oris SA said: “Having produced motor sports inspired watches for almost 40 years we are confident that we have brought first class technical and design elements to the Oris-RUF watches. These limited edition precision timepieces are collectors’ items and reflect the craftsmanship for which both our companies are renowned.”
