Oris Makes A Strong Point For Men’s Health During Movember

When it comes to men’s health there is most certainly room for improvement. Prostate and testicular cancer still claim many lives, but also mental health issues result in the premature death of 500.000 men annually. This year Oris is joining once again the Movember Foundation to raise funds and awareness. As Oris Chairman Ulrich W. Herzog says ‘As men, we don’t talk about these
issues often enough – and often not before it’s too late.’

This is also the message of Miguel Gutierrez, the Nomad Barber, who joined Oris for this special mission. Together with Dr Johannes Wimmer, who has a YouTube channel which highlights various men’s health issues through a lighter approach and Australian forester Scott Poynton who promotes being closer to nature to improve one’s health, he will raise awareness for the cause.

Oris is also releasing a special Movember edition based on their iconic Big Crown Pointer Date. With its 40mm case, black dial and coin-edge bezel it is most certainly a masculine watch that shows its association with Movember not only through the engraving on the case back, but also with the little mustache on the strap. Part of the proceeds of this special edition watch will go towards the Movember Foundation, which Oris will also support with events in and around their Oris boutiques worldwide!

The author 0024 Editorial Team

When we started publishing our first high-end watch magazine in 1999, we had only one intention: increasing the popularity of high-quality mechanical watches. Now, many years later, this has not changed at all. In 2017 we have reinvented ourselves to serve our readers in a different and better way. Starting in 2017, the new 0024 is again better equipped to interact with the changing world of high-end watches. The new 0024 HORLOGES magazine (written in Dutch) will be at least a 200 pager: that’s twice the volume of our magazine in the old days.
