2019 marks the third year in a row that Oris is supporting the global men’s mental health charity Movember by releasing a special edition watch.
Too many men are dying too young, whether it is from prostate cancer, testicular cancer or suicide. Movember was founded in 2003 to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25% by 2030. The organization is currently supporting over 1,250 projects worldwide that address these issues. Oris is one of the charity’s supporting partners. Movember is a mix of “mustache” and “November” and yes, Movember does take place in November when Mo Bros and Mo Sistas across the world Grow a Mo, Move for November or Host a Mo-ment to raise money for men’s health.
Aaron Boone, manager of the world’s most famous baseball team, The New York Yankees, knows better than most how important a sense of team and community can be to success. Joining forces against men’s health issues is key to reducing premature deaths. Aaron Boone worked with Oris on a marketing and promotional campaign to further spread the word
The Oris Movember timepiece is a special edition of the brand’s Chronoris line that comes in a 39mm stainless steel case with a black dial and rose gold-plated hour and minute hands, an orange seconds hand and white indexes. There is an inner rotating bezel which allows you to time events, and a water resistance to 100 meters. A part of the proceeds from each watch sale goes to support Movember.
The timepiece is powered by the Oris 733 automatic caliber with a 38-hour power reserve.
There is a choice of a brown leather strap and a red and white NATO strap or a stainless steel bracelet. The leather strap features a mustache stamped between the stitches.
