MR PORTER x Haulogerie: Watch Picks of the Week #79

Welcome to MR PORTER x Haulogerie: Watch Picks of the Week, our weekly series where we trawl MR PORTER's coffers to pick out some of the most incredible watches you can buy. In this week's edition, we'll be highlighting some of our favourite pieces from one of our favourite watchmakers, Vacheron Constantin. Enjoy!

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Tourbillon Automatic

Unveiled at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie Genève, Vacheron Constantin's watch is part of its 'Traditionnelle' line - a collection which "pays tribute to the craftsmanship and expertise passed on from generation to generation". Engineered with an intricate hand-assembled tourbillon that's one of the most complex complications known to horologists, it's housed in polished 18-karat pink gold and affixed to a handsome brown alligator strap. You can observe the precise workings of the 188-part 2160 automatic movement through the sapphire case back.

Vacheron Constantin Historiques American 1921

The distinctive design of Vacheron Constantin's 'Historiques' watch is closely modelled after a style from 1921 that was specially made for Americans during the Roaring Twenties - it has a diagonal face that's readable without having to turn your wrist, and a crown at the top corner, rather than the side. Detailed with a railway dial-train, Arabic numerals and small seconds sub-dial, it's crafted from 18-karat pink gold and powered by a calibre 4400 AS hand-wound movement with a power reserve that lasts nearly 3 days.

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 placed 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.

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.

Vacheron Constantin Fiftysix Automatic Complete Calendar

"They have a talent that no machine could ever replace," says Vacheron Constantin of its master watchmakers - expertise has passed down from generation to generation since the maison was founded in 1755. Manufactured in Switzerland, this polished 18-karat pink gold 'FiftySix' watch features luminescent hands and indices, a calendar with displays for date, day and month and a precision moon-phase indicator. It's fitted on a leather strap and has an exhibition case back revealing the calibre 2460 QCL/1 automatic movement that's engraved with the Hallmark of Geneva.

Vacheron Constantin Fiftysix Automatic

Vacheron Constantin has crafted watches for over 260 years - the longest of any Swiss watchmaker. From the maison's 'Fiftysix' collection that's inspired by mid-century styles, this streamlined reference is built with a polished pink gold case and supple leather strap that matches the brown dial. The calibre 1326 automatic movement, 22-karat gold oscillating weight and signature emblem are visible through the exhibition case back.
