20.04.2011 - Fly fast, fly low, turn left to Reno
2010 marked a historic milestone for the Oris Big Crown Air Racing Team, as it saw them competing at the legendary Reno Air Races in Nevada, USA, for the very first time. Team pilot Don Vito Wyprächtiger was the first ever Swiss man to qualify for this prestigious event and placed 2nd in the Formula Gold Race at his first attempt. To honour this great achievement, Oris have created a special BC3 watch limited to 1000 pieces.
The design of the Oris BC3 Air Racing Limited Edition is inspired by the team’s race plane the “Scarlet Screamer”. The case is made of light titanium and weighs 40 percent less than steel. It has an additional 24 hour hand to show the time in a second time zone, another important feature for pilots. The red airplane shaped pointer for the second time zone hand also relates to the colour and design of the “Scarlet Screamer”. The watch features a practical screw down crown and water resistance to 10bar/100m, making it a real watch for real pilots.
The Oris Big Crown Air Racing Team has conquered the skies of Reno and the BC3 Air Racing Limited Edition is set to win over pilots and watch aficionados alike.
