This watch represents the latest Williams Formula One collaboration with Oris, inspired by materials used in the 2018 Williams FW41 race car.
The Oris Williams FW41 Limited Edition features a carbon fiber case middle and dial, with a black DLC plated titanium bezel, caseback, pushers, and crown. The case measures 44 mm in diameter by approximately 15-16 mm thick and weighs 7.2 grams which is light but hard to put in context seeing the total weight was omitted by Oris. Water-resistance is 100 meters.
A Sellita SW500 chronograph movement (comparable to an ETA 7750) drives hours, minutes, small seconds (at 9 o’clock) and a chronograph which counts (12-hours, 30-minutes, and 60-seconds). The movement runs at 4Hz, measures 30 mm x 7.9 mm, has a 48-hour power reserve, with 25 jewels, and Oris has added its signature red automatic winding rotor.
The chronograph hour and minute subdials at 12 and 6 o’clock feature Williams Racing blue hands and they uniquely reset to zero at 8 o’clock instead of 12, a homage to the Williams instrument panels of historic Williams racing cars.
The Oris Williams FW41 Limited Edition comes with a black rubber strap that measures 24 mm and DLC-plated deployant clasp and is available in limited edition of 410 pieces, marking Williams’ 41st season in F1. (Ref. 01 774 7725 8794 RS)
