Acting as the official time partner and the title sponsor of the Oris Rally Clásico Isla Mallorca, Oris unveils its new Calobra Limited Edition watch. The novelty is inspired by the iconic classic cars participating in the rally.
Calobra is the name of a tiny village thirty-two miles from Palma de Mallorca, Spain. The village is surrounded by the picturesque landscape with weaving roads and breathtaking corners, and even the notorious ‘Nus de sa Corbata’ translated as ‘tie knot’.
The place is really popular with classic car enthusiasts. Since 2005, the ‘Rally Clásico Isla Mallorca’ has been held in the backdrop of Calobra and the surrounding territory. This year's 9th edition will be held at Puerto Portals, brimming with yachts, bistros and aficionados, as it takes to the roads of the island from 14th to 16th March. This one of a kind rally takes the cars through 400 kms of mountainous terrain around the west coast of Majorca. There are 14 stages over three days - two on Thursday evening and six each on Friday & Saturday. The 2013 edition features almost 90 competitors in classic speedsters dating back to the 50's including famous names like MG, Porsche, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Austin Healey, and Spanish local Seat.
As Title Sponsor of the event, Oris has showcased their support and dedication to the occasion by creating a limited edition timepiece, Oris Calobra, in honor of the Rally. The new Oris watch features a multi-piece 44mm diameter stainless steel case. It incorporates a bezel, rendered in black ceramic, rotatable in both directions. On the outside, it is rubber-coated and boasts ‘good grip’ profile.
A sapphire crystal, domed on both sides, with anti-reflective coating inside, protects the dial. The case is 100-meter water-resistant.The two-piece dial is framed by a silver mat ring that bears a Tachymeter scale. The subtle black shade of the dial is contrasted with Superluminova-coated Arabic numerals. At 9 o’clock, you will notice a special seconds display with a dashboard-like design. The Nickel hour and minute hands are provided with Superluminova inlay. The watch features an automatic mechanical movement Oris Cal. 774 and the Chronograph function is presented with help of motorsport-inspired red hands. The date window is positioned at 6 o’clock.
The case-back of the Oris Calobra watch reveals an engraving of the unique ‘tie knot’, reminding of the unpredictable twists and turns of the roads in the surroundings of Calobra. Limited to 1,000 pieces, the Oris Calobra Limited Edition epitomises classic motorsport design and function. The timepiece is presented in a unique box, which includes a folding set with a rubber strap and a tool to change the bracelet. This sporty and elegant timepiece is priced at $ 3,800.
