Oris Williams F1 Team Motor Sport Chronograph Swiss Watches Review

Updated on January 6, 2015

Oris WilliamsF1 Team: More Functions

The best way to appreciate Oris WilliamsF1 Team Motor Sport collection is to compare it to the TT3. WilliamsF1 opts for busier dials, but sticks to more traditional case and strap designs; it employs less exotic materials – stainless steel instead of titanium.

The collection stands out as a more sports oriented alternative that drops the flashier elements of the TT3, and sacrifices some of the aesthetic beauty for functionality.

One of the most notable changes in Oris WilliamsF1 Team appears in the pushbuttons: instead of the stylized oversized keys you get a conventional pair of buttons that accompany the crown. This replacement sets the tone for the entire collection – more usability, less visual aesthetics.

Design

The ultra streamlined lugs-integrated straps of the TT3 give way to more conventional strap design that reminds of car tires. In a way, this feature also signifies a more “down to earth” approach.

Several features further distinguish the collection as intended for motor sports. First, a tachometer scale adorns the bezel and immediately associates the timepieces with speed. Second, luminous hands facilitate legibility in high-speed or otherwise extreme conditions. Third, red or blue color-tipped second hands allow to follow time effortlessly under high stress and increased gravity.

Dials

Oris WilliamsF1 Team employs large indices that cut through the faces of the watches. Unusually large date apertures (similar to Jaeger LeCoultre Master Compressor Diving watches) accommodate three numbers, the central indicating the current date.

The Skeleton Engine Date model shows the date in a different but just as clear way, revealing the inside of the movement. It's evident that high legibility becomes a top priority in this motor collection, as some of the harmony evident in TT3 dials is sacrificed for more focused and defined compositions.

Movement

Oris WilliamsF1 Team collection relies on the watchmaker's mechanical automatic (self-winding) movements that provide between 38 and 42 hours of power reserve and incorporate the trademark red rotor. Depending on the model, day and date shifts can be instantaneous or gradually shifting, and 25 or 26 jewels inhabit the mechanisms of these wrist watches.
