Oris TT1 Watches: An Ode to Flashy Well-oiled Race Cars

Oris TT1 watches are as flashy and well-oiled as Formula One cars. That is why they are among the leading timepieces in the race to the top of the sports watch market.

The timepieces are flashy, giving away the fact that the wearer is a motor sport aficionado through their dial and band designs. The watches’ faces sport technical sub-dials, edgy indexes, and curved or flat non-reflective sapphire glasses, mimicking the fuel and/or speed gauges of race cars. The straps or bracelets attached directly to the cases have straight grooves or sleek finishes similar to rubber tires and stainless steel wheels.

 The watches are well-oiled because they function effortlessly with speed and endurance. This is thanks to the “engines” driving them, the calibers. The movements, based on renowned ETA and Sellita mechanisms, were modified by Oris for better performance. As a result, the calibers can oscillate at a rate of 28,800vph at 4Hz. This speed is already fast for precise timekeeping, delivering 38 to 48 hours of power that is already long-lasting by current standards. Furthermore, they support date and chronograph complications with quick-change and fine timing features.

How much is an Oris TT1 watch?

The Oris TT1 is great for racing enthusiasts who want a fashionable sports watch that comes in a reasonable luxury price range. The timepiece is already a steal for buyers because it goes for only $1,000 to $5,000 USD. Proof of that is the popularity of its many versions. Below are the hottest Oris TT1 models and how much each one costs:

Prices for the Oris TT1 Day Date Watches

The Oris TT1 Day Date, listed between $1,400 USD and $1,700 USD, is the least technical-looking out of all the watches in the Oris TT1 collection. It features a plain spoke-patterned black or white dial with just the luminous hands and baton. Nevertheless, the watch highlights an impressive day and date complication at the 3 o’clock position. 

The timepiece has a day-date window that supports instantaneous setting and self-correction. That means the indicator changes in a split second exactly at midnight and fixes itself if the wrong figures are displayed. The complication is made possible because of the watch’s internal Oris 735 caliber that is based on the SW 220-1 movement. Besides these smart features, the mechanism yields 38 hours of power per automatic winding cycle.

The TT1 Day Date also features either a rubber or stainless-steel band. The $1,400 USD Oris TT1 Day Date with a black dial has a branded grooved rubber strap that is like a basic race car wheel. Meanwhile, the $1,700 USD Oris TT1 Day Date Stainless Steel with a white dial integrates a silver-tone bracelet that is why it has a subtle sporty style.

Prices for the Oris TT1 Engine Date Models

Oris TT1 watches typically exhibit their outstanding calibers from the transparent case backs. The TT1 Engine Date, valued at $1,800 USD, dares to be different from the rest of the timepieces in the collection by proudly showcasing the movement from its skeletal dial.

The Oris TT1 Engine Date features a multilayered face that makes it more technical and three-dimensional. The black skeletal dial has an outermost layer with the indexes, a quick-changing and self-correcting middle date ring, and a cutout center that directs the wearer’s eye to the caliber.

Beneath the openwork dial is the “engine” that drives the TT1 Engine Date. It is the Oris 733 caliber that uses the SW 200-1 movement as its framework. The Oris 733 delivers 38 hours of power and supports fine timing and stop-seconds like the Oris 735 caliber of the TT1 Day Date.

The Oris TT1 Engine Date, in its most impressive form featuring a date ring and stainless-steel build, typically goes for $1,800 USD. You can get it at a discounted price of $1,359 USD.

Prices for the Oris TT1 Chronograph Models

The Oris TT1 Chronograph is among the flashiest race car-inspired watches from the Oris TT1 catalog. The timepiece’s face looks like it was taken straight from a Formula One vehicle’s dashboard. This is due to its three sub-dials, dual side pushers, tachymeter scale, and red or silver bezel accents. 

Just as impressive is the Oris 674, an automatic caliber that drives the watch’s continuous chronograph, fine-timing, and self-correcting date complications. This caliber is based on the ETA 7750 caliber and bears a red rotor, an Oris trademark that stands for high quality. The movement transcends other in-house calibers, yielding power that lasts 48 hours per winding cycle.

The Oris TT1 Chronograph which is motorsport-inspired from its PVD-coated dial to its rubber strap and edgy with a black-and-red motif is worth $3,400 USD. Some versions are more casual or formal, being stainless steel all over. Those are priced at about $200 USD less than the rubber versions.

Prices for the TT1 Chronograph 2000 Series

The Oris TT1 Chronograph 2000, listed at $2,700 USD, functions like the TT1 Chronograph but differs when it comes to the dial, case, and strap style. As a result, the timepiece appears more inspired by tires than fuel or speed gauges.

The watch’s black dial features a matte texture and pointy tritium-covered indexes instead of a smooth finish and baton markings. Encasing it is a stainless-steel case topped with a rubber bezel that is thicker and more rounded than the version with a ceramic top ring. The black rubber strap, meanwhile, has four straight grooves instead of just two.

The TT1 Chronograph 2000 is also available with a stainless-steel bracelet. This version is priced about $200 USD higher than the model with the rubber strap.

Prices for the TT1 Worldtimer Watches

The Oris TT1 Worldtimer is for the well-  traveled motorsport fans. The watch is best known for its dual time zone and quick-changing date displays.

Apart from those features, there is more to the TT1 Worldtimer that is worth highlighting. It is the only model from the Oris TT1 collection that showcases a carbon fiber texture at the center of its dial. Carbon fiber is a popular material for making high-performance race car parts because it is extremely strong against wear and tear. It also gives the watch endurance like what it does for top-notch Formula One vehicles.

The watch’s other design elements, such as the hand, index, case, and strap styles are the same as that of the TT1 Chronograph 2000. The Oris TT1 Worldtimer with rubber and stainless-steel bands are priced at $2,900 and $3,100 USD, respectively.

Special and Limited-Edition Oris TT1 Watches: Tribute to Racers

The TT1 watch owes its success to the world of racing, its main source of inspiration. As a tribute to the racers and race teams that fuel the motorsport industry, Oris released special- and limited-edition watches.

One of these is the Oris TT1 Williams F1 Team Day Date worth $1,700 USD. The special-edition timepiece showcases the brand’s partnership with and support for Williams F1, one of the biggest and most decorated British Formula One teams. Style-wise, the watch takes after the classic Oris TT1 Day Date but has the Williams F1 logo on its dial and is black all over.

Another one is the Oris TT1 Allan McNish valued at $1,350 USD and up. The timepiece, limited to 1,000 pieces, is named after the famous British racer the brand sponsored back in 2002. The watch is one of a kind, having its crown unconventionally positioned at 9 o’clock to not interfere with driving hand positions. Additionally, there is a McNish back engraving and tartan on it that symbolizes the racer’s nationality. The timepiece also has a racing helmet-like display case that die-hard fans would love.

Oris TT1’s History: A Great Head Start

The Oris TT1, even when it was first unveiled in 2001, was already a unique sports watch. That was why it got a great head start versus its competitors. The first Oris TT1 timepiece was designed to be like a Formula One car, having fuel or speed meter-inspired dials and vertical grooved tire-like rubber straps. No other sports watches exuded the race car vibe all over back then.

The watch was made more attractive for hardcore Formula One enthusiasts with the release of limited and special editions back in 2002 and 2003. Among the watches with exclusive racing-inspired features are the Oris TT1 Allan McNish and Williams F1 watches. Both releases incorporated ideas from and were worn by the racers. For instance, the crown on the left side of the Oris TT1 Allan McNish was reported to be suggested and tested by the racer himself. The TT1 Williams F1, of course, was a timepiece endorsed or used by the renowned Williams F1 team during actual races.

The Oris TT1 then became more technical over time, as shown by the Day Date, Chronograph, and Engine Date models that were released in the years that came after. The third watch, unveiled at BaselWorld 2017, was the most complex. It caught many connoisseurs’ interest because of its date ring and exposed caliber on its multilayered skeletal dial. 

Apart from the special and limited editions and the Engine Date, the TT1’s design has been consistent ever since it was introduced to the market. It shows that Oris is sticking to its formula for success that helped it outpace competitors in the first place. That is a good thing for the Oris TT1, as it continues to be a top pick for motorsport and watch aficionados to this day.

5 Reasons to Buy an Oris TT1 Watch

Why is the Oris TT1 the ideal timepiece to purchase for fans of race cars and sports watches? Below are the top five reasons:

1. The Oris TT1 is designed and built like the finest Formula One cars.

2. The watch has variants for hardcore and casual racing fans.

3. The timepiece is not too pricey for a luxury sports watch, being at the sub-$5,000 range.

4. The watch stays precise over time, having quick-change and self-correcting features.

5. The timepiece is from Oris, a watchmaker with more than a hundred years of expertise and long-lasting partnerships with icons from the motorsport industry.

Oris TT1: A Watch That Leaves Rivals in the Dust

With its distinct style, the Oris TT1 is a watch that would easily leave its rivals in the dust. It is the best Formula One-inspired timepiece out in the market because it follows the race car motif from the dial to the strap. Moreover, it is the most authentic a motorsport watch can get because it incorporated ideas from and got tested by the top racers themselves.
