In the 100th edition of the regular MR PORTER x Haulogerie: Watch Picks of the Week series, we're celebrating 10 years of MR PORTER with some incredible pieces from The Anniversary Collection. And just in time for Christmas! We've picked out a handful of amazing watches including pieces from Vacheron Constantin, Roger Dubuis, IWC and Cartier. Enjoy!
Jaeger-LeCoultre + MR PORTER Reverso Classic New York
A way to track time for the city that never sleeps, Jaeger-LeCoultre's 'Reverso Classic' pays tribute to New York with a radiant Lady Liberty engraved on the case back. It's part of a limited series designed to celebrate MR PORTER's 10th anniversary, and stays true to the watchmaker's Art Deco-informed icon with the distinctive fluted stainless steel case, and unique revolving functionality that turns the dial inward to protect it. The movement honours the age-old tradition of hand-winding.
Vacheron Constantin Les Collectionneurs Chronograph
Vacheron Constantin's reference 4072 chronograph was in production from 1938 until the late 1960s, but never in large quantities - the watchmaker's archive indicates the total production volume at just over 1000. This model was made in 1949 from 18-karat gold, and runs on the hand-wound V434 calibre, a modified Valjoux 22 movement. Around the edge of the dial run both tachymeter and telemeter scales. The silvered dial provides a good contrast to the applied yellow gold Roman numerals and baton markers.
IWC + MR PORTER Limited Edition Pilot Chronograph
A 10th birthday is a rather significant milestone, so we've partnered with IWC to issue this watch marking MR PORTER's decade in style. In a limited run of 110 pieces, our very own 'Pilot' chronograph edition comes in a bronze case engraved with our credentials and a complementing faux suede strap. It's powered by a calibre 69380 movement with a 46-hour power reserve and features engraved subdials that recall Côtes de Genève finishing.
Panerai Luminor Marina PAM1664
From the blue ocean-inspired dial and matching alligator strap to the 30-bar water resistance, Panerai's 'Luminor Marina' is a true diving timepiece. It's been crafted in Switzerland from Carbotech™ with a matte black appearance and uneven grain, so each watch has a unique look. Powered by an in-house calibre P.9010 automatic movement with an impressive three-day power reserve, it has a sandwich dial which allows the luminescence to shine through the cutout Arabic numerals and indices.
Cartier Santos de Cartier Limited Edition
A truly special collection, Cartier's 'Santos de Cartier' watch comes with matching cufflinks, and a lacquered wooden case to store both. The limited edition timepiece - the 10th reference of 100 - is crafted from platinum, and engraved on the back with an image of the 'Maritime Guide Rope' - the historic airship of Brazilian pilot Alberto Santos Dumont, for whom the design was originally commissioned circa 1904. The typical blue 'cabochon' in the crown has been replaced by a red ruby, and the design - somewhat unusually for Cartier - uses Arabic instead of Roman numerals. The white gold cufflinks are set with hawk's eye semi-precious stone, matching the water-like shades of the watch's guilloché engraved opaline dial.
Roger Dubius Excalibur Limited Edition Flying Tourbillon
There's no mistaking a Roger Dubuis 'Excalibur' watch, what with the (literal and metaphorical) edgy lines of the skeletonised dial. With this one-off limited edition, you can view the extremely precise craftsmanship of the hand-wound movement's flying tourbillon. It's made in collaboration to celebrate MR PORTER's 10th anniversary and engineered from highly strong DLC-coated titanium - the modern look of which can be amplified or tempered by a red 3D pixel or black leather strap. Note the blacked-out index at number 10 and MR PORTER-inspired star design on the glass to commemorate the special occasion.
