Oris announces Movember Edition, a special diving timepiece created in partnership with the international men’s health charity Movember Foundation. The watch is based on Oris’s hugely successful Divers Sixty- Five, a heritage piece inspired by an Oris diver’s watch first introduced in 1965. Oris will make a donation to the foundation based on sales of the watch.
The Movember Foundation was founded in 2003 and tackles some of the biggest health issues facing men, including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. Its mission is to help men live happier, healthier, longer lives and to stop them dying too young. Every November, it encourages men to grow moustaches to raise money in support of the 1,200 health projects it runs around the world. The event enjoys worldwide backing and is supported by numerous celebrities in sport, comedy and fashion.
The Movember Edition has a number of features linking it to the organisation. The watch’s applied indices and hands are edged with rose gold plating, tying the watch in with Movember’s colour palette, and simultaneously creating a unique look within the stylish Divers Sixty-Five collection.
The 1960s Oris logo engraved on the case back is framed by the words ‘Oris Movember Edition’ and the Movember Moustache logo. The same logo is heat-stamped into the watch’s brown leather strap at 12 and 6 o’clock. It is presented in a special heritage box and comes with a tricolour Bordeaux red, beige and dark brown NATO strap that features the Movember logo on the metal loop.
