Welcome back to MR PORTER x Haulogerie: Watch Picks of the Week. In this week's instalment, we'll be featuring two new releases from Panerai, along with a handful of other stunning pieces that we're sure are right up your alley. Enjoy!
H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Flying Hours
In creating this limited edition 'Endeavour Flying Hours' watch, H. Moser & Cie. combines innovative technologies, a precise handmade movement and luxurious materials. Rather than traditional hands, it's made with three blue jumping hour discs that indicate the hours and a central transparent minutes disc, all rotating above the Super-LumiNova® fumé dial. It's housed in a 42mm 18-karat white gold case and powered by a calibre HMC 806 automatic movement, the inner workings of which can be viewed through the sapphire glass case back.
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.
Ulysse Nardin Skeleton X Hand-Wound
Ulysse Nardin has specialised in marine watches since the very beginning, and innovates in the field like no other. Part of its 'Skeleton X' line, this model is crafted from Carbonium® Gold - a revolutionary compound derived from the aerospace industry, which mixes carbon elements with gold to produce a handsome marble effect. It's fitted with a full-grain leather strap to complement the organic texture and features an exhibition case back, so you can view the UN-371 movement from every angle. It's built to withstand 50 bar water-resistance, and has an impressive four-day power-reserve.
Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Hand-Wound
Founded in 1755, Vacheron Constantin crafts classic watches that will one day turn into precious heirlooms. This 'Patrimony' model has a perfectly round 18-karat rose gold case inspired by styles from the 1950s found in the storied watchmaker's archive. It's powered by a flawless calibre 1400 hand-wound movement that's engineered to meet the standard of excellency associated with the hallmark of Geneva - an exclusive certification of quality awarded to this 40mm style. It's fitted with a brown alligator strap that'll grow increasingly supple with wear.
Panerai Submersible Blu Notte PAM01068
This 'Blu Notte' edition of Panerai's storied 'Submersible' watch is the first 42mm model to come with a stainless steel bracelet, each link shaped to echo the house's iconic crown protector. It's equipped with a calibre P.900 automatic movement – one of the brand's slimmest – to ensure it sits neatly under most cuffs, and comes with an easily interchangeable Sportech™ strap (which matches the blue dial and ceramic bezel), so you'll be able to smarten your look up or down depending on the occasion.
Panerai Luminor Due PAM01124
Large tool watches have always been indicative of Panerai's military DNA, and while the 'Luminor Due' is up to 40% thinner than older models, it still packs the associated horsepower. Crafted in Switzerland from polished stainless steel, it has a signature rounded-square case with a sun-brushed blue dial and contrasting luminous hands and indices for legibility. The date window is nestled at 3 o'clock directly adjacent to the protected crown where everything can be fine-tuned and set.
