Swiss watch brand Oris unveils Audi Sport Limited Edition III, the third watch in a series created to celebrate the partnership between the company and the iconic endurance racing team. Like the two watches that preceded it, the new watch features an innovative Oris developed complication – a vertical countdown.
This standout feature appears on a subdial at 9 o’clock. At the 12 o’clock position there’s a vertical aperture that fills with red every 15 seconds over a five-second period before returning to black again, just like the gantry lights on a race start line.
These Oris-developed features are wrapped in a 44mm black DLC-coated titanium case. Oris’s designers wanted a rigid but lightweight case to mirror the high-performance chassis of Audi Sport’s R18 race car, qualities they found in titanium. The dial design is reminiscent of dashboard instruments and the chronograph hour and minute counters bring back memories of classic speedometers and rev counters.
The watch is fitted with a perforated black rubber racing strap that has a black DLC-coated titanium folding clasp to match the case. The case back is engraved with a silhouette of Audi Sport’s R18 race car and the limited edition number.
