   Since 2003, Oris and Williams have entered a fourteenth year of cooperation. As one of the longest sponsors with Williams, Oris has witnessed the speed and glory of its hard work. With the deepening of the cooperation between the two parties, Oris has launched a new Williams model this year, the Oris Williams Bottas Limited Edition watch, since the Williams Team Series was launched last year. At the F1 China Grand Prix competition, Oris presented Botas limited edition watches with a limited edition of 770 pieces to Botas in order to encourage his outstanding achievements in several seasons.

Bottas recommends Oris Bottas limited edition watches to fans

   The carbon fiber of the Oris Bottas Limited Edition watch is inspired by the manufacturing concept of F1 racing cars. The manufacturing materials of F1 racing cars need to have the ultimate strength-to-weight ratio. The core components such as the outer frame and steering wheel of the racing car are made of carbon fiber. It is twice as strong, but weighs only one-fifth of it. The case of the limited edition Bottas watch is also made of carbon fiber and weighs only 7.2 grams, which means more agile speed and explosive power in a lightweight body.

   At the same time, Oris Bottas Limited Edition watches have outstanding performance. The carbon fiber textile sheet is placed in a separate mold and is integrally formed after two hardenings at 130 degrees Celsius; independent rigidity and waterproofness ensure the solidity and tightness of the case material. Oris innovative technology improves the extremely high cost performance that is not specific to traditional carbon fiber watches, and reduces the later processing and time-consuming of the case.

Through Oris patented technology, the carbon fiber textile sheet becomes a light and strong case middle frame

   As Bottas said, everything in the F1 race is about time. Whether it is in qualifying or the race, every lap is a race against time, and the timer is closely related to the car. The Oris Bottas Limited Edition features 30-minute, 12-hour and small seconds. The chronograph hands and chronograph dial use Williams’s classic blue, which is matched with the main color of black to make the watch more dynamic and attractive. Extreme speed.

   In Bottas’ view, the dashboard of F1 makes people feel a strong sense of science and technology, and compared to the world of electronic components, Oris’s pure pursuit of machinery is even more admirable. As he said, Oris will adhere to the constant insistence on mechanical watchmaking, renew the official timer of the F1 Williams team, deepen the research and development and cooperation with the Williams team, and contribute new friends to the car and watch friends. Watch works and create future racing stories.
