Oris partners with award-winning London barber for a Movember shave down
The luxury watch brand and the Nomad Barber are launching a special edition timepiece for the discerning mustachio connoisseur
Luxury watch brand Oris is partnering with the award-winning Nomad Barber to support the Movember Foundation, the international men’s health charity that encourages gentlemen to wear a moustache throughout November to raise money and awareness for men’s health issues. The brand has designed a special edition timepiece – the Movember Diver Sixty-Five – with black and rose gold hand and dial features to link with the charity’s colour scheme.
To launch a month of events throughout European cities, the charitable watch brand is collaborating with Nomad Barber, Shoreditch, to offer the ‘Oris Shave Down’ on 1 November. On this day, Nomad Barber founder Miguel Gutierrez will offer pre-booked customers a free wet shave and entry into a prize draw in which the participant who raises the most money for Movember by 30 November will win one of the exclusive special edition watches. >>
Gutierrez said of the collaboration: “As a barber it’s so invigorating knowing you’re providing someone with a service that ultimately lends itself to a much greater cause. It’s an absolute honour to be working with Oris for Movember and I’m excited to watch gentlemen go bare-faced on the 1 November for such a great cause.”
The watch is based on the brand’s popular Diver Sixty-Five series, and features an engraving of the brand’s 1960s shield logo with ‘Oris Movember Edition’ and the moustache logo on the case. It comes with a classic brown leather strap, colourful fabric strap and strap changing tool. The Movember Foundation was launched in by Australian ‘Mo Bros’ Travis Garone and Luke Slattery in 2003 to tackle men’s health issues such as prostate and testicular cancer and mental health issues including suicide prevention. It now operates in 21 countries globally and has raised more than £443 million for men’s health projects.
