Welcome back to MR PORTER x Haulogerie: Watch Picks of the Week, our regular series where we pick out our six favourite watches from the coffers of the premier men's online fashion destination. In this week's round up we'll be highlighting some incredible pieces from the likes of Laurent Ferrier, Roger Dubuis and Vacheron Constantin. Enjoy!
H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Tourbillion Ox's Eye
The striking minimalism of H. Moser & Cie.'s 'Endeavour Tourbillon Ox's Eye' watch not only makes for a notable addition to your collection but is perfect for any formal event. Free from numerals and indices, the elegantly assembled dial gleams with a tonal effect inspired by an ox's eye, while the window at six o'clock frames the automatic movement's escapement. The case is crafted from 18-karat red gold that's complemented well by a brown leather strap.
Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Perpetual Calendar
Distinguished Swiss horologist Vacheron Constantin was founded in 1755 and many of the watches it crafts today are inspired by models from the house's archives. This ultra-thin 'Patrimony' style has an 18-karat pink gold case sculpted into a perfectly round shape just like those classic designs from the '50s. It's powered by the house's calibre 1120 QP automatic movement that drives the minute and hour hands and perpetual calendar, too – the 276 internal parts are able to follow leap years. The visually arresting moon phase indicator is positioned just above the 6 o'clock mark and showcases lunar movements.
IWC Portugieser Perpetual Calendar Boutique Edition
This 'Boutique Edition' watch from IWC's iconic 'Portugieser' collection has been engineered in Switzerland with the label's perpetual calendar complication - the date, day, month, leap year and moon phase indicators are perfectly synchronised. Powered by a custom calibre 82650 automatic movement, it has a polished 18-karat gold case and classic blue dial that matches the expertly crafted alligator strap.
Roger Dubuis Excalibur Huracán Automatic Skeleton
This particular edition of Roger Dubuis' 'Excalibur' model takes visual cues from the V10 engine beneath the hood of Lamborghini's Huracán - notice the angular bridge, which resembles the powerful supercar's strut bar, and the rim-shaped rotor at the back. Crafted with an 18-karat pink gold and black titanium case, this 45mm timepiece has a skeletonised dial that reveals the powerful RD630 calibre movement, which is made up of 233 components and has a 12° angled balance wheel and 60-hour power reserve. Presented in a carbon fibre-panelled presentation box, it's fitted with an Alcantara® and rubber strap that's extremely durable.
Laurent Ferrier École Régulateur
Laurent Ferrier's 'École Régulateur' watch balances a refined, simplistic appearance with traditional horology complications, like the regulator function that allows the hours, minutes and seconds indicators to sit separately. Then, there's the in-house calibre FBN 228.01 movement, which is on view through the exhibition case back, showcasing the micro-rotor and meticulous Côtes de Genève finish. The lugs are positioned so that the brown leather strap sits neatly flush against the rounded stainless steel case.
Vacheron Constantin Historiques American 1921
Vacheron Constantin's 'Historiques American 1921' watch is inspired by the original model launched for the American market during the Roaring Twenties. Designed with the same 45-degree angled dial for easy viewing and strategically place crown between one and two o'clock for more comfortable hand-winding, this version features a sleek 18-karat white gold case, white dial with black Arabic numerals and hands and small seconds sub-dial. It has an exhibition case back and patinated brown leather strap.
