Oris has created a third limited edition series model in honour of its status as time partner of the Swiss Air Racing team, which is the only Swiss team taking part at the Reno Air Race.
The Oris third limited edition series is based on the successful BC3 design.
The Reno Air Race dates back to 1964 and showcases the skills of aviators in high performance aircraft. The Swiss Air Racing team first competed at the Reno Air Races in Nevada, USA, in 2010.
The team pilot for the Swiss Air Racing team Don Vito Wypraechtiger, was the first Swiss national ever to qualify for the event.
The focal point of the Oris Air Racing Edition III is the red and white zebra print minute hand, inspired by the speed limit indicator of a flight instrument. The clearly visible hand allows the pilot to focus on the minutes indicator, a function that is crucial during flights.
The watch has a black DLC-coated BC3 case and textile strap and is limited to just 1,000 pieces. It comes in a special aviation box bearing a compass indication on the top.
