Welcome to the next edition of our regular series, MR PORTER x Haulogerie: Watch Picks of the Week. In this week's instalment, we'll be diving through the coffers of the esteemed men's online fashion destination to bring you a handful of exceptional watches, including pieces from Roger Dubuis, Cartier, Oris and Panerai. Enjoy!
Roger Dubuis Excalibur Huracán Skeleton
Roger Dubuis has once again teamed up with Lamborghini Squadra Corse to design the new 'Excalibur Huracán' - combining the former’s horological expertise with the latter's Italian engineering. Limited to just 88 pieces, it's powered by an automatic RD630 calibre and has a frosted ceramic case with an exhibition back revealing the 360° oscillating rim weight that reproduces the like-for-like speed effect of its namesake's wheel rims. The crown takes cues from the car's racing buts and Super-LumiNova® has been used to coat the hands in addition to the timepiece's tilted surfaces so you can still read it in low light.
Panerai Submersible Azzurro PAM1209
Engineered for diving, Panerai's 'Submersible Azzurro' watch is waterproof up to 300 metres. Sporty and sophisticated, its matte-black dial is accented with 'Luminor' hands and indices, which are incredibly legible even underwater. It's powered by the brand's P.900 automatic movement and is perfectly sized at 42mm wide. Limited to just 500 pieces worldwide - and we have the last ten numbered references ever produced - it comes with an easily interchangeable Sportech™ strap along with a screwdriver for changing the straps.

Ulysse Nardin Diver Automatic
Ulysse Nardin's designs are intrepid by nature. Modelled on vintage styles, this uniquely numbered 'Diver' watch has an uncluttered dial that's finished with the GPS coordinates of its manufacture. The case is crafted from stainless steel and PVD and houses a precise UN-816 automatic movement. Super-LumiNova® hands and rose gold-tone contrasts enhance its readability.
Bamford Watch Department B347 Automatic Chronograph
Bamford Watch Department focuses on distinctive identity, a sentiment the 'B347' chronograph personifies with its copious renditions and variations. The durable forged carbon fibre case houses an intricate Swiss-made calibre Sellita SW510 automatic movement that powers the hands as well as two subdials. This 'Aqua Blue' edition is accented with hands, indices and markers in a nautical-inspired shade - the interchangeable rubber strap is presented in a corresponding colourway.
Cartier Pasha de Cartier Chronograph
Cartier relaunches its iconic 'Pasha de Cartier' watch from the early '80s with an updated 'QuickSwitch' system that makes it easy to interchange the bracelet and alligator straps. This stainless steel reference has a round silvered flinqué dial, square chapter ring and chronograph features like 60-second, 30-minute and 12-hour counters. It's powered by a Swiss-made calibre 1904-CH MC automatic movement that can be seen hard at work through the case back.
Oris Aquis Date Calibre 400
Built for performance and longevity, Oris' 'Aquis Date Calibre 400' watch will appeal to those with a degree of pragmatism. Visible through the case back, the robust namesake movement is the model's centerpiece in more ways than one, with a high-efficiency escapement mechanism and anti-magnetism to ensure accuracy. The case and bracelet are both made from robust stainless steel.
