Oris Challenge International de Tourisme 1932

From August 12th to 28th 1932, Berlin throbbed to the distinctive sounds of the aircraft taking part in the daunting race organised by the FAI (Fédération Aéronautique Internationale or World Air Sports Federation): the International Tourist Plane Challenge. Pilots vied with each other in three types of competition – technical, rally-type and speed tests – in an overall contest won by Franciszek Zwirko of Poland. Oris now pays tribute to this legendary team by offering the Oris Challenge International de Tourisme 1932. The knurled bezel vividly recalls its connection with the Big Crown collection of models dedicated to aviation. In a nod to the aircraft starting number in the race, the counterweight of the central seconds hand carries a small 08, and the caseback features the silhouette of the RWD-6 as well as an engine-turned decorative motif. Its understated vintage look evokes a glorious past in which performances were as much due to mechanical engineer as to the heroism of the protagonists. The presentation book also features a certificate and a Zipp cigarette-lighter that will bring back plenty of memories for those who feel nostalgic for this wonderful era. 1,923-piece limited edition.
