Oris RAID 2013 Limited Edition Watch Review

 

Oris has launched the RAID 2013 Limited Edition, a watch inspired by the iconic Jaguar 420, the winning car of the 2012 RAID Suisse-Paris classic car rally.

The RAID Suisse-Paris is an annual rally for pre-1975 cars. As Official Timekeeper since 2009, Oris creates a new timepiece each year in honour of the 600-mile picturesque journey from Basel, Switzerland, to Paris, France.
"Given the classic status of the cars competing, the rally tests not only the ability and timekeeping of the drivers but also the capacity of the cars to withstand the testing demands of the race," the brand says. The Oris RAID 2013 Limited Edition celebrates the 23rd edition of the RAID Suisse-Paris, taking place in August.




The Oris RAID 2013 Limited Edition is inspired by the dashboard of the 1967 Jaguar 420 that won last year's race, featuring red triangles and its signature number font. It has a 44 mm stainless steel case, with sapphire crystal top glass domed on both sides and with anti-reflective coating inside. The date is displayed at 6 o'clock, and the day is shown at 9 o'clock. The RAID Suisse-Paris logo and limited edition serial number are engraved on the case back.

The watch is powered by Oris automatic mechanical movement 755 with chronograph function. It is limited to 500 pieces, and is presented in a luxury wooden box.
