The partnership between Oris and Williams F1 Team began in 2003, after 10 historical seasons, the watchmaker has renewed and upgraded its sponsorship with the team.

Oris’ passion for motor sports began way back in the 1970s with the now famous Chronoris, which first captured the true spirit of Formula One. Since then, they added the Artix GT, TT1, TT3 and RAID models to the range.

Oris has a heritage of over 100 years of watch manufacturing in HÓ§lstein, Switzerland, and is the world’s leading manufacturer of mechanical watches. Its watch designs usually incorporate a hallmark red rotor as an integral element of the design mechanism. The Oris designers work with the latest technology at the cutting edge of watch making to meet the highest quality standards, while remaining true to the company’s characteristic designs.

“I am happy to see that Oris has continued its partnership with us and honoured to be a part of Oris’ commitment to the development and success of our team,” added Pastor Maldonado.

Previous drivers include Nico Hülkenberg as well as Nico Rosberg, who first became an Oris ambassador in 2006, even meriting his own limited edition watch. He was partnered during the 2008 and 2009 seasons by Kazuki Nakajima, who also inspired his own limited edition Oris. They were preceded by Mark Webber in 2005 and Ralf Schumacher in 2004.
