The collaboration between Oris and Audi has entered its second year, and Oris is proud to launch the limited edition Audi Sport II watch. The watch is inspired by the groundbreaking Audi R18 E-TRON QUATTRO, with a black outline on the case back.
Oris is also the official watch partner of the Audi Sport team at the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) and the German Touring Car Championship (DTM). Audi Sport has won a record of 12 Le Mans endurance events since 2000. In 2014, the Audi R18 E-TRON QUATTRO sponsored by Oris was once again on the podium. This victory was led by the team of Swiss racer and ORIS brand ambassador Marcel Fassler.
