Independent Swiss watch company Oris reaches out to sufferers of prostate cancer by introducing Oris Movember watches with the aim of raising CHF 100,000 (Bt3.3 million) for the Movember Foundation’s charity this autumn.

Oris first worked with Movember in 2017 as part of its vision to bring change for the better and to behave in a socially, economically and ecologically responsible way. Last year, Oris raised CHF 45,000 for the charity, a figure it aims to more than double this year.

Established in Australia in 2003, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas have taken part in Movember across 21 countries and their charity has funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects. Its goal is to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25 per cent by 2030.

“Oris is passionate about bringing change for the better and to improving men’s lives, and we’re delighted to be supporting the inspiring mission of The Movember Foundation,” says Oris chairman Ulrich W Herzog. 

The Oris Movember watch is based on the signature-designed Big Crown Pointer Date, an iconic design with its fluted bezel and central pointer date hand. It’s powered by an automatic mechanic movement. 

Its stainless steel case is 40mm in diameter with black dial. Oris’s shield logo is engraved on the case back and framed with ‘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 leather pouch with a second tricolour NATO strap stamped with the Movember Moustache logo on the pin buckle. 

“The situation is critical. Not enough is being done to support men as they face up to cancer and mental health issues, and too many men are still dying too young. Movember and growing a Mo is all about building the dialogue and making a difference to men’s health,” said Owen Sharp, chief executive officer of the Movember Foundation. 

“We want to secure better futures for men all over the world so that by 2030 the number of men dying prematurely is 25 per cent lower than it is now. We’re deeply inspired by the Oris Movember Crew and can’t wait to work with them on spreading the message and raising funds.’
