Welcome to the next edition of MR PORTER x Haulogerie: Watch Picks of the Week, our regular series where we pick out our favourite watches from the coffers of the premier men's online fashion destination. In this week's instalment we'll be highlighting watches from the likes of Panerai, Jaeger-LeCoultre and Laurent Ferrier amongst others. Enjoy!
H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Centre Seconds
H. Moser & Cie. understands that in watchmaking, sometimes less is more, as this automatic 'Endeavour Centre Seconds' reference proves. The 'Funky Blue' dial is free from details save for a striking sunburst effect and hour, minute and seconds hands rendered in 18-karat white gold, just as the case is. It's limited to just 100 pieces, which is denoted on the back, and anchored by a patinated leather strap.
Panerai Luminor Due 3 Days PAM00675
One of the defining characteristics of Panerai's 'Luminor Due' is its thinness, which is unusual for a watch that has such a substantial 45mm width. Crafted from Goldtech™, an alloy that owes its pinkish hue to a percentage of copper and durability to platinum, it's equipped with a minimal sun-brushed dial, small seconds subdial and polished black alligator strap. The automatic P.4000/10 calibre has an impressive three-day power reserve made of 207 components and two barrels, which you can see oscillating through the sapphire glass case back.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Memovox Timer
Jaeger-LeCoultre began in Vallée de Joux, a region primarily known for music boxes - the house's chiming 'Memovox' watch alarms were born from that tradition. Manufactured in a limited run of just 250 models, this 'Master Control' reference houses a new version of the function via the concentric timer dial. It's kept by an automatic calibre 956 movement and has a polished stainless steel case mounted on an alligator strap. View the inner mechanism, including the alarm's signature 'hammer', through the open caseback.
Laurent Ferrier Classic Micro-Rotor
Growing up above his father's watch workshop in Geneva, a fascination with racing car engines and stints at Patek Philippe inspired Mr Laurent Ferrier to launch his eponymous label. Lauded for its classicism and simplicity, this 'Micro-Rotor' timepiece has a hand-polished stainless steel case and white opaline dial with signature Assegai-shaped hands. It has a honey leather strap with a soft Alcantara underside, and is powered by an in-house-manufactured automatic FBN 229.01 calibre that can be admired through the exhibition case back.
Ulysse Nardin Dual Time Automatic
Ulysse Nardin has an impressive heritage rooted in navigational timepieces with precise mechanical engineering - today, the brand applies its innovative skills to creating watches that are ideal for any situation, whether that's "a day of city exploring or an evening of five-star dining." Made in Switzerland with an automatic movement and long-lasting 42-hour power reserve, this 42mm 'Dual Time' reference is built from durable stainless steel and fitted with pushers at the side that allow you to instantly set a different time zone.
Panerai Luminor Marina TuttoGrigio PAM01662
Panerai has a long history of innovation in watchmaking, from the namesake material developed for its 'Luminor' line to the 3D-printing technique used in this 'Marina' watch. Powered by an in-house P.9010 automatic movement with a three-day power reserve, it has a titanium and Carbotech™ case that's formed 30 microns at a time in a Direct Metal Laser Sintering process, more commonly used to make aerospace parts. The Sportech™ strap is made from rubberised woven canvas for durability and the all-grey palette complements the signature luminous markings nicely.
