Oris + The Nomad Barber for Movember

In an excellent initiative to promote awareness around male health issues such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer and suicide to name but three, Swiss watchmakers Oris will be collaborating with award-winning The Nomad Barber in Shoreditch to publicise a special Movember edition of the iconic Diver Sixty-Five watch.

The watch has a number of features that link it to Movember: the applied indices and hands are edged with rose gold plating with a rich black dial, in keeping with Movember’s palette, whilst adding to the Divers Sixty-Five collection.

As part of a number of fundraising events taking place across Europe, Miguel Gutierrez, founder of The Nomad Barber (check out his YouTube series) will be promoting the ‘Oris Shave Down’ thus encouraging men to participate in Movember where they grow a moustache to promote awareness of health issues pertinent to men. On 1st November only, The Nomad Barber will give free wet shaves to all pre-booked customers.

Miguel Gutierrez, Founder of The Nomad Barber expressed his excitement about 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 1st November for such a great cause.”

And if that isn’t enough to inspire you, those treating themselves to a wet shave will be entered into a draw with the possibility of winning a Movember Diver Sixty-Five watch worth £1,800, as will any participant who raises the most money for Movember through a legitimate fundraising source.

The Oris Movember Diver Sixty-Five special edition will be on sale in participating retailers, where a percentage of each sale will also go towards Movember. To book in for your free wet shave go to:
