RAID Suisse-Paris (2010 – 2013)
From 2010 to 2013, Oris was the official timekeeper and Official Watch Partner of the RAID classic car rallies. The most famous of the rallies is the RAID Suisse – Paris which takes place in August each year and runs mostly from Basel in Switzerland to the French capital. 2010 also marked the 20th anniversary of the RAID rallies. Competitors raced a distance of between 800 and 1000km on country roads in cars which were all built before 1975. It’s one of Europe’s biggest classic car rallies and a real test of the competitors’ skills as navigators, drivers and mechanics.
To mark the occasion of the RAID Suisse-Prais Oris has launched an Oris RAID Limited Edition each year from 2010 to 2013. Inspired by the winner car they show the beauty and craftsmanship of modern watchmaking.
