Oris has become the Official Watch Partner for Movember, as it joins the drive to bring Change for the Better. They are teaming up to aid the cause by partnering with the world’s largest men’s health organization, to help fight the greatest health threats facing men today.
Oris is now Movember’s Official Watch Partner across Europe, and Supporting Partner in the UK. Movember is an annual event which uses the growing of mustaches and engagement in physical activity during the month of November. The organization seeks to raise awareness of men’s health issues, including some of the most serious problems faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, and the risk of suicide.
Oris is helping to raise this awareness by issuing their Movember Edition. This is a special limited edition of their Oris Divers Sixty-Five. The Movember Edition has watch hands and indices edged with rose gold plating, mirroring the color palette of Movember itself. It gives the Movember Edition a unique look among Oris Divers Sixty-Fives. On the case back, the 1960s Oris logo is engraved, framed by the words “Oris Movember Edition” and the Movember Moustache logo. That same logo is stamped onto the watch’s brown leather strap, at 12 and 6 o’clock. The watch comes in a special box, and has an addition tricolor NATO textile strap. The textile strap has the Movember Moustache logo featured on the metal loop.
The Oris Movember Edition is powered by the Oris Caliber 733 Automatic Movement. The watch is encased in a multi-piece stainless steel case and has a screw-in crown. Water-resistant to a hundred meters, the timepiece is naturally a diver’s watch, which makes it a perfect testimony to the ideal of keeping physically active to stay healthy. Also, as a diver’s watch, it echoes the dangers of mental health and suicide risk, reminding us all that some of the greatest dangers can be lurking out of sight below the surface.
