In 2017, during a visit to the Nomad Barbershop, in London, I got snagged into an Oris-supported shave off for Movember. The prize for the Mo Bro who raised the most money? A newly dispatched Oris Diver 65 Movember edition of their very own…
Thanks to the participants of Time 4A Pint and the audience members of the Time 4A Pint web recording my silly mustache attracted more than £2,200 of gifts, putting me at the highest point of the “Oris shave off” gathering. Thusly, the attractive retro-styled jumper from Höstein wound up on my wrist.
Two years on, I concluded the time had come to discover the Oris another home. As I had won the watch by fund-raising and mindfulness for a decent aim in 2017, I couldn’t help thinking that the correct method to place it on another wrist in 2019 was by accomplishing business as usual. I needed the watch to proceed with its great work and help the Movember Foundation in its journey to stop men biting the dust too young.
I set an objective of raising £5,000 and put 500 wager tickets marked down. After absolutely selling out (and getting some liberal gifts on top), I finished the month with £11,220 in the kitty — astounding stuff!

A high bar

This year’s objective is £20,000. The prize is my own Oris Chronoris Movember Edition. I’ve worn it twice. It accompanied me to the Movember grants and discovered it’s route to my wrist again for a brassy wrist shot taken in our backyard.
Additionally, the great, kind, liberal, humorously entertaining, and absolutely boss Barbara Palumbo, has marked and dispatched me a duplicate of her book Floris Delores and the Oris Chronoris, which the fortunate victor will go with their Oris Chronoris Movember Edition. How great is she?!
A uncommon podcast
Along with raising assets, in 2020 I’m quick to also raise however much mindfulness as could reasonably be expected of the three regions of men’s wellbeing that Movember upholds. Those are prostate disease, testicular malignancy, and psychological wellness and self destruction prevention.
With that objective, I’ve delivered
