Question about the Oris F1 (40.5mm)

1561 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  ENGPHOTO
I have been looking at the blue dial F1 with stainless bracelet in which I have a question. In the Oris product catalog it shows the watch with "Williams F1 Team" printed on the dial just above the day indicator. This seems to be the norm for most of the F1 watches. However, I have also seen pics of the same watch on that tv shopping channel's website identical in every way except that the dial does not have "Williams F1 Team" printed on it at all. :eek:

Is one version newer than the other? If so, what kind is the latest variant? Is the one without the printing exclusive to that 'tv shopping channel'? I wouldn't think that the one without the Williams printing on the dial is a fake, but you never know.:001_unsure: Could anyone here enlighten me on this? Thank you!

That's pretty interesting. It doesn't look like any of them at that link have the Williams F1 logo.

Would they have removed it en masse?
Could anyone here enlighten me on this?
I can try :wink:

I believe that starting with last years models they removed the Williams logo from the dial and its only found on the watchback now. I can only guess this was to broaden the watches appeal to a larger group of customers who were not into F1. Though after saying that i do know that ORIS is still a sponsor with Williams and still have several models with the Williams logo on the Dial side of the watch :thumbup:
