Welcome back to the next instalment of MR PORTER x Haulogerie: Watch Picks of the Week, where every week we highlight some of favourite watches from the men's online fashion destination. In this week's edition we'll be featuring watches from IWC, Vacheron Constantin and Chopard. Enjoy!
IWC 10 Years of MR PORTER Limited Edition Pilot's Watch 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.
Vacheron Constantin Overseas Dual Time Automatic
Vacheron Constantin's 'Overseas' collection celebrates watchmaker Mr François Constantin's journeying and openness to the world. This 'Dual Time' reference has an 18-karat pink gold case housing a precise Swiss-made 5110 DT automatic movement with a 60-hour power reserve. Ideal for the modern traveller, it features a satin-finished dial with hour, minute and second hands as well as a second time zone, day-night indicator and date window. You can switch between the alligator and rubber straps, depending on what the occasion calls for.
Chopard L.U.C Perpetual Twin Automatic Perpetual Calendar
Paying homage to Mr Louis-Ulysse Chopard himself, the 'L.U.C' watch showcases the mastery of watchmaking that his Maison has cultivated in the century and half since its foundation. Entirely assembled at Chopard's Swiss workshop down to the smallest parts, this stainless steel 'Perpetual Twin' timepiece is named in reference to its perpetual calendar complication (a union of the practical and the poetic, to borrow the Maison's description), and the Chopard power reserve's twin-barrel technology. The calibre is COSC-certified, and its date-keeping complication even takes leap years into account - as such you won't need to adjust yours until the year 2100.
H. Moser & Cie Swiss Alp Limited Edition Hand-Wound
H. Moser & Cie. brings traditional Swiss manufacturing to the smart watch with this pioneering model, which is hand-wound rather than USB-charged, and as such, powers up to an impressive 96 hours. Part of a limited run of 50, it's set on a leather strap with a DLC-coated stainless steel case and smoked dial that's striking in its minimalism, and enhances the legibility of the hands and seconds counter.
Piaget Polo Skeleton
Piaget had some notable wearers back in the '70s - Messrs Roger Moore and Andy Warhol favoured the original editions of the 'Piaget Polo', while Mr Miles Davis was an early adopter of the house's skeleton styles. A fusion of both, this model is crafted from stainless steel, which complements the displayed mechanisms of its 1200S automatic movement. It's impressively slim by virtue of the meticulous assembly of the calibre's parts, and each component has been chamfered to sharpen the lines of their striking architecture.
Baume & Mercier Riviera Automatic
Celebrating a distinguished era of watchmaking, Baume & Mercier's 'Riviera' watch is based on an original '70s design and features the same distinctive twelve-sided - or dodecagonal - bezel and angular case. This fifth generation is made from stainless steel with an integrated bracelet and has a slightly transparent blue dial and exhibition case back, so you can admire the in-house movement from the front and back. Practically speaking, it features a date window and five-day power reserve. This is a watch that will stand the test of time.
