Purely Mechanical Watchmaker Celebrates 10 Year Association with Williams in Formula 1.
Oris today presented their new brand ambassador Bruno Senna of the Williams F1 team at the unveiling of the new Renault Alpine car at an event in Petaling Jaya. The event also celebrated a decade of partnership of Formula 1 for Oris. The driver, who is delighted to be in Malaysia, excited the crowd by giving away 5 Oris watches worth over RM26,000 to lucky attendees at the event.
Raymond Tan, General Manager of Oris said, “We are extremely pleased to present our latest brand ambassador Bruno Senna. Oris is proud to have participated as a partner with William in Formula 1 for 10 years, as part of our long term commitment to the motorsports industry and its success.”
Bruno Senna contributed to the design of the Oris Motorsports TT1 Chronograph watch which uses mechanical automatic movement with centre hands for hours, minutes and chronograph ¼ seconds and 3 subsidiary dials for continuous seconds as precision and accuracy in timing is vital in motorsports.
Those who attended the event also had the opportunity to win Oris watches by simply registering as a MyOris member at www.oris.ch and answering a question on Oris’ partnership with Williams F1. Five lucky winners had their prize presented to them by Bruno Senna.
An official Williams F1 watch partner since 2003, Oris, renewed its sponsorship of the team ahead of the 2012 FIA Formula One World Championship where the Oris logo has a revised position on the FW34, and will feature on the cars’ front wing pillars as well as on drivers and mechanics overalls, driver gloves and team collateral.
