In 2005, as the official sponsor of the Williams F1 Team, Oris launched the exclusive Mark Webber Limited Edition Chronograph to commemorate the Australian driver’s début.
The special, individually numbered watches are signed on the case back by Mark Webber. The sports chronograph with stop and go functions has been shaped to suit the needs of a top racing driver. The multi-piece case is made of ultra-light titanium. The crown is secured by the new “Quick Lock” system. Flexible lugs ensure the perfect fit of the watch even under extreme conditions.
The rubber strap is replicating the vertical tyre tread of Formula One. The bezel as tachometer and the dial are designed in the cockpit look. This automatic chronograph watch is limited to 1,000 pieces.
Mark Alan Webber joined the Williams F1 team in 2005. After completing his initial contract of two years, he left the team and joined Red Bull Racing.
