ORIS Divers Sixty-Five MOVEMBER

Just in case you were worried that the Divers Sixty-Five from Oris was lacking in variation, here’s another to add to the collection and this time it’s in the name Men’s Health and the Movember Foundation to which Oris will make donation based on sales of the Special Edition watch.



Oris has created a Movember Edition, a special edition watch made in partnership with the international men’s health charity. The watch is based on Oris’s runaway success, the Divers SixtyFive, a heritage dive watch inspired by an Oris diver that was first introduced in 1965.



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 organization. The watch’s applied markers and hands are framed with a Rose Gold plating, tying the watch in with Movember’s color codes, and simultaneously creating yet another special look for the 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.



During the month of Movember, Oris will host a series of fundraising events across European cities, including shavedowns, poetry slams, Movember walks and an auction of an Oris Movember Edition. Details will follow via Oris’s social media channels and via the hashtags #ORISMOVEMBER and #ORISCHANGEFORTHEBETTER.



The Oris Movember Edition is supplied with a tri-color NATO textile strap. The strap’s metal loop is engraved with the Movember Moustache logo.
The watch has a number of special touches, including hands and indices edged with rose gold plating and the Movember Moustache heat-stamped into the leather strap
