Oris’ dream is to combine the spirit of racing with Swiss craftsmanship to create a distinctive watch. In the new master of art GT chronograph, we can clearly understand the watchmakers’ deep understanding and unremitting passion for motorsport and watchmaking tradition. The creative vertical 5 second countdown function cleverly restores the countdown process of the racing start light.

The small seconds at 9 o’clock on the dial not only indicates the seconds, but also has a vertical 5 seconds countdown function, which is consistent with the F1 Grand Prix starting light countdown principle, that is, 5 seconds count every 15 seconds. There is a vertical window on the upper part of the small seconds dial. The background color is white. Within every minute, the time display will be displayed after 10 seconds, 25 seconds, 40 seconds, and 55 seconds. white.
Solving complex problems with ingenuity is a tradition at Oris. The indicator dial under the small seconds dial is white with a red step-like pattern printed every 10 seconds, and the whole looks like a red ‘windmill’. When it rotates, it displays a 5-second timing every 15 seconds through the vertical window. On the edge of the small seconds dial, there is a small red square running every 60 seconds, which is the watch’s true small second hand.

The 44mm case of the watch is made of stainless steel, and the shape is simple and tough. Under the transparent case back, Oris’s iconic red rotor is like a blade of an engine, injecting power into the watch. The black matte ceramic bezel can be rotated in both directions, marked with a polished minute scale, and the sides of the bezel are wrapped with rubber for more convenient operation. The watch comes with a racing-style black perforated rubber strap or a stainless steel strap.
