For the second consecutive year, watchmaker Oris has partnered with Audi Sport to present the Audi Sport Limited Edition II watch. Being dedicated to the ground-breaking Audi R18 e-tron quattro, the new model features its silhouette on the case back.
Oris has a long track record of producing high-performance motorsport timepieces, with a heritage that leads back to 1970. The Audi Sport Limited Edition II is the latest in the line.
The new watch is powered by an Oris Calibre 778. Key features include a 10-minute countdown, useful for drivers looking to keep track of race start times. It also features useful day and date indications at 3 o’clock, taking design cues from the dashboard instruments of modern Audi race cars.
Oris has given its new Audi Sport timepiece a stealthy all-black look. Its case is cast in lightweight titanium with a black dial and the bi-directional rotating bezel has a scratch-resistant black ceramic insert engraved with a minute scale. Eye-catching red central seconds and sub-dial counter hands protect the watch’s legibility.
The Oris Audi Sport Limited Edition II will be worn by Audi Sport drivers during the 2015 season, and is limited to 2,000 pieces. It can be purchased from authorised Oris distributors worldwide.
