Another week down, another round up of some of the best pieces from the premier online men's fashion destination in our weekly series, MR PORTER x Haulogerie: Watch PIcks of the Week. In this week's instalment we'll be featuring pieces from Breitling, Jaeger-LeCoultre and Cartier. Enjoy!
Breitling Endurance Pro SuperQuartz Chronograph
This 'Endurance Pro' watch is the timepiece of choice for Breitling’s legendary Triathlon Squad, which includes world-class athletes Messrs Jan Frodeno and Chris 'Macca' McCormack and Ms Daniela Ryf. Built in Switzerland with the brand's proprietary Breitlight® case - a robust, scratch-resistant material that's non-magnetic and 3.3 times lighter than titanium - this COSC-certified chronometer is powered by a calibre Breitling 82 thermocompensated SuperQuartz™ movement that can track up to 1/10th of a second. The durable rubber strap matches the storm-blue shade of the crown, pulsometer scale and indices. Find out more here.
Breitling Chronomat B01 Chronograph
"It was the watch that boldly proclaimed Breitling was staying absolutely true to its roots," says CEO Mr Georges Kern of the 'Chronomat' reference that was re-designed in 2020. Initially launched in 1984 - when quartz movements were dominating the market - this automatic, COSC-certified 'B01' reference has been built in Switzerland from polished stainless steel and features original design details, including a rotating bezel with signature rider tabs and integrated Rouleaux bracelet. The hands are coated with Super-LumiNova® to ensure legibility.
Breitling Chronomat B01 Chronograph
Breitling's 2020 'Chronomat' references recall design details from the original model launched in 1984, like signature rider tabs on the rotating bezel and a sleek Rouleaux bracelet. Designed with a copper and black dial, this stainless steel 'B01' watch is powered by an in-house automatic movement that's COSC-certified and has an impressive 70-hour power reserve. Super-LumiNova® coating and a red chronograph hand make it easy to read.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Geographic
"For the well-travelled, time saved is always precious," says Jaeger-LeCoultre, dubbing its 'Master Control' the "ultimate travel watch". This 40mm model has a signature 'Geographic' calibre which simultaneously reads time at home and zones abroad on a disc inside the sloping bezel, each denoted in blue letters. Classic and elegant, it's housed in a stainless steel case, with a sunrayed silver dial and elongated dauphine hands.
Montblanc Heritage Monopusher Chronograph
Montblanc released its 'Heritage' collection at Watches & Wonders (formerly SIHH) in Geneva last year. Inspired by classic Minerva timepieces, this Swiss-made 'Monopusher Chronograph' has a pair of counters on the clean white dial, one of which indicates three, six and nine minutes - it's a vintage detail from the days when people needed to track time spent on coin-operated phones. It's powered by a calibre MB25.12 automatic movement and has a classic Milanese mesh bracelet strap.
Cartier Santos de Cartier
Launched more than 100 years ago as one of the first ever wristwatches, Cartier's 'Santos' reference is truly iconic. This stealthy all-black version is crafted from steel and ADLC and powered by a precise automatic caliber 1847 MC movement. It has a sleek black dial with luminescent sword-shaped hands and a matching alligator strap along with a 'QuickSwitch' interchangeable rubber strap for more casual occasions.
