Watchmaker Oris supporting Movember with a special edition of its Chronoris

Swiss watchmaker Oris has unveiled a new timepiece to support annual men’s health awareness campaign Movember, enrolling New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone to promote Oris’s efforts to “change things for the better.”

As part of its ongoing efforts to change “men’s lives for the better” over the last several years, Oris has taken inspiration from one of the world’s most famous baseball teams — the New York Yankees, which has a community that has played an essential role in the initiative’s success over the years. The watchmaker is using the notion to support the Movember movement, which fights against men’s premature death and promotes men’s health, including prevention of prostate and testicular cancer as well as mental health issues.

A few days ahead of the campaign, which runs yearly through November, Oris is offering a special limited-edition of its iconic “Oris Chronoris,” adding a portion of the proceeds from its sales to the Movember foundation to the funds collected as part of the worldwide campaign.

“Men’s health is in crisis,” said Movember Executive Director Simon Traynor. “And, for the third year running, with the help of Oris and the Oris community, we will take another important step towards achieving that.”

The Movember Edition Oris stands outs with its 39-mm stainless steel round casing surrounding a black watch face contrasting with gold-rose plated hour and minute hands, white numbers and an orange seconds hand. Waterproof down to 100 meters, the model has a self-winding Oris 733 movement, handling the hour, minute, seconds, and date functions, as well as a 38-hour power reserve. The timepiece is on sale now at prices ranging from US$2,000 (€1,800) for the leather strap option to US$2,200 (€2000) for the steel bracelet model.
