For the third year in a row, Oris is releasing a special edition watch for Movember, the global men’s mental health charity. The original 2017 Movember Edition was based on the Divers Sixty-Five, and last year’s model was a variation on the Big Crown Pointer Date. This year we’re getting a take on the ChronOris, a vintage-inspired piece that was added back into the Oris catalog two years ago. The Movember Edition still has the same 39mm stainless steel case, the same dual crown configuration, the same domed crystal, and the same internal rotating bezel as the other ChronOris models, but it’s distinguished by a new color scheme that recalls vintage gilt dials, with rose gold dial accents on the bezel, hour markers, logo printing, and even the hands (which are actually rose gold plated).
To further the connection to Movember (which is, for the record, a portmanteau of “moustache” and “November”), the leather strap option is stamped with two moustaches between the side stitches and there’s also a special red and white fabric NATO that’s include with both the leather strap and steel bracelet models. Part of the proceeds from each watch sold go directly to Movember, so when you’re supporting a good cause when you add a new watch to your collection.
