Get your combs and trimmers at the ready because Movember is upon us yet again to help change the face of men’s health and prevent men dying too young. Working alongside the Movember Foundation for a second year running, Oris is releasing another Movember watch, this time using their renowned Big Crown model for inspiration. Once again, a portion of the sales of each Oris Big Crown Movember 2018 watch sold will be going directly to the Movember Foundation.
The Movember Foundation have been encouraging men to grow their facial hair throughout the month of November since 2003 in order to raise money and support thousands of health projects across the globe including cancer and suicide prevention. This incredible cause has already made a huge impact on the state of men’s health today and the organisation intends to have reduced the number of men dying prematurely by 25% by 2030. As well as styling the hair on your face, there are many ways to get involved Movember including walking or running 60 kilometres over the month, that’s 60 kilometres for the 60 men we lose to suicide each hour. Alternatively, you can host your own Movember event or show off your new Oris Big Crown Movember 2018 watch and help promote this fantastic cause.
Last year Oris released an edition of their retro-looking Sixty Five model for Movember 2017 which was a huge success for both the charity and the Swiss watch manufacturer. For 2018, they have taken their popular Big Crown watch and tailored it beautifully with small but gorgeous details like two moustaches embossed on the vintage brown strap and an all new matte black dial with gold plated hands and markings.
The Oris Big Crown Movember 2018 watch comes in the shape of one of the larger Big Crown models measuring to 40mm in diameter and still showcases the signature coined edged bezel. The case is fitted with domed sapphire crystal glass which has been coated in anti-reflective treatment on the inside for effortless legibility of the matte black dial. The 50 metre water resistance case back is kept closed so we aren’t able to see the movement, however they have engraved the back with a special edition decoration of a vintage-looking Oris logo in the centre and an inscription of ‘Oris Movember Edition’ and a matching moustache along the edge.
Hidden within the centre of the Oris Big Crown Movember 2018 watch is the Oris 754 movement, the same calibre used in standard Oris Big Crown watches. This stunning automatic winding movement is a modified automatic Sellita movement and boasts a power reserve of 38 hours, 26 jewels and 28,800 vph. The Oris 754 calibre also equips the striking black dial with gorgeous rose gold hour and minute hands painted in Superluminova coating, a sleek rose gold seconds hand and a handy red-tipped pointer date function. As well as the moustache-embossed vintage brown leather strap, this Oris Movember 2018 watch also comes with an additional fabric strap and a gorgeous leather pouch for storage.
The Oris Big Crown Movember 2018 watch is everything we wanted to see from the brand this year. They have kept the same signature elements of their famous Big Crown model and embellished it with stunning Movember inspired details to once again promote and encourage the work that the Movember Foundation is doing. Get involved with Movember this year, whether that be by growing some facial hair or by ordering one of the new Oris Big Crown Movember 2018 watches today. Remember that a portion of all the sales goes directly to the Movember Foundation charity, helping to fund the incredible work that they are doing for men’s health.
