Swiss watchmaker Oris has recently become an official partner of the Movember Foundation – a multinational charity organization dedicated to raising awareness and money for men’s health. Founded in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia, the organization is active in 21 countries and has a global workforce of more than 130 people. Its most known campaign is Movember, where men are encouraged to grow moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of various men’s health issues. In collaboration with the foundation, Oris has created a special dedicated watch – the Movember Edition. Based on the iconic Divers Sixty-Five, the latest Oris watch is now available at authorized retailers for a price of CHF 2,100. A portion of the sales will go towards the Movember Foundation.

According to Oris Chairman Ulrich W. Herzog, the Swiss brand has been tracking Movember’s activities for a number of years. He stated that the company is privileged to work with the foundation and that it looks forward to raising significant funds through sales of the watch. During the month of November, the Hölstein-based watchmaker will host several fundraising events across Europe. This will include various poetry slams, shave-downs, Movember walks, as well as an auction of an Movember Edition watch. Oris will announce more details on this through its social media channels via the hashtags #ORISMOVEMBER and #ORISCHANGEFORTHEBETTER.

The new Oris Movember Edition features several “Movember-inspired” details. It’s applied indices and three hands are plated in rose gold, tying the timepiece with Movember’s autumn colors, and at the same time creating a unique look within the Divers Sixty-Five range. On the back of the watch, the engraved Oris shield is framed by “Oris Movember Edition” and the Movember Moustache logo. The very same logo can also be found on the watch’s brown leather strap (heat-stamped at 6 and 12 o’clock), and on the additional tricolor NATO textile strap (engraved on its stainless steel loop).

The Movember Edition has a 40mm stainless steel case that is water resistant to 100 meters. The multi-piece case features a black aluminum unidirectional rotating bezel with 60-minute timer and zero marker filled with Super-LumiNova. The luminous material is also present on the applied indices, hour and minutes hands, as well as on the seconds’ hand lollipop insert. Slightly curved, the highly legible black dial displays hours, minutes, seconds, and date in a window at 6 o’clock.
