Welcome to the next instalment of our regular series 'MR PORTER x Haulogerie'. In this week's column we have pieces from Zenith, IWC, Cartier and Girard Perregaux. Enjoy!
Zenith Defy El Primero Chronograph in Brushed Titanium
Zenith's Defy El Primero Chronograph in Brushed Titanium was featured in our second 'MR PORTER x HAULOGERIE' column which sold out almost instantly. So here it is again!
IWC Pilot's TOP GUN Automatic Chronograph
Perhaps one of the most underrated stainless steel sports watches on the market today. A beautiful combination of tradition, complexity and modernism in a super approachable package.
Bremont Oracle I
Part of Bremont's 'America's Cup Collection', the 'Oracle I' is the only piece to include the ORACLE TEAM USA's emblem on the dial. Based on the Supermarine platform, the Oracle I is ultra rugged, super durable and more than capable of handling anything you'll throw at it.
Cartier Santos Automatic
An icon of watchmaking, now available with an interchangeable stainless steel bracelet and leather strap, Cartier's Satos epitomises the classical look and feel of the wristwatch. And that jewel-encrusted crown is just brilliant -- I love that Cartier continues this tradition.
Girard-Perregaux 1966 Automatic
Girard-Perregaux's 1966 Automatic captures the quintessential look of a traditional dress watch with modern proportions. Like Jaeger-LeCoultre's Polaris, I feel that the 1966 Automatic is severely misrepresented in the market and offers so much for so little.
IWC Big Pilot's Heritage in Titanium
A Big Pilot is a must-have for any collector, but one made in titanium is just about as good as it's going to get without venturing deeper into your pockets to get a precious metal version. Deep, dark, big and bold, the Big Pilot's Heritage is an enigma of watchmaking.
Piaget Altiplano in White Gold
Simple, thin, minimalistic and direct, Piaget's time-only Altiplano is perhaps too plain for some, but for others, myself included, it epitomises the beautiful essence of traditional watchmaking.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Calendar
Jaeger-LeCoultre's Master Calendar combines a luxurious feel with some super useful information, all in a package that is wearable, that is approachable and that can be dressed up or down. What else could you want in your calendrier watch?
IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Laureus Sport For Good Limited Edition
IWC's Aquatimer Chronograph Laureus Sport For Good Limited Edition is a charitable effort, aimed to contribute back to 'Laureus Sport for Good', a charitable organisation that used sports programs to impact social change. Deep blues and blacks form the theme for the Aquatimer Chronograph Laureus Sport For Good Limited Edition, and it does so to dramatic effect. An easy-wearing, feel-good watch.
