Welcome to the next edition of MR PORTER x Haulogerie: Watch Picks of the Week. In this week's instalment, we'll be featuring some incredible watches available through MR PORTER, including pieces from the likes of Roger Dubuis, Girard-Perregaux and Panerai. Enjoy!
Roger Dubuis Excalibur Automatic Skeleton
Roger Dubuis' timepieces are considered works of horological art in their own right - featuring the Swiss watchmaker's signature skeletonised dial, this 'Excalibur' reference is no exception. It's crafted from robust stainless steel with a 42mm case and matching bracelet, and houses an automatic RD820SQ movement, made of 166 individual components. The star-shaped bridge is a hallmark of the collection.
Ulysse Nardin Marine Torpilleur
Ulysse Nardin is a true pioneer when it comes to nautical watchmaking - its award-winning marine chronometers are some of the most accurate and have been used by over 50 different navies. Combining sleek design and innovative technology, this 'Marine Torpilleur' timepiece is powered by a UN-118 automatic movement and features a sleek 42mm polished stainless steel case housing a blue dial with a handy date window and power-reserve indicator. The coordinating rubber strap is engineered to withstand frequent wear.
Girard-Perregaux Laureato Absolute TI 230
Girard-Perregaux's 'Laureato Absolute TI 230' celebrates two milestones in watchmaking history - the Swiss brand's establishment back in 1791 and the discovery of titanium by British clergyman and mineralogist William Gregor, which occurred in the same year. Designed with a 44mm case crafted from the remarkably light elemental metal, this limited-edition model features a gradient grey dial with time- and date-keeping functions, powered by a calibre GP03300-1060 automatic movement. The case back is engraved with the 'Laureato Absolute' emblem.
Panerai Radiomir California PAM00424
Panerai's Swiss-made 'Radiomir California' watch draws inspiration from the first ever 'California' version of its military diving watches, introduced in 1944. Retaining the alternation between Roman and Arabic numerals, the Italian house made the dial and hands more luminous for it to be used in complete darkness. Housed in a AISI 316L polished stainless steel case and powered by an in-house-crafted P.3000 calibre hand-wound movement, this reference has an exhibition case back and Scamosciato leather strap with contrasting cream stitching.
Cartier Pasha de Cartier
The iconic 'Pasha de Cartier' watch is defined by its four Arabic numerals and blued steel diamond-shaped hands. This reference has been crafted in Switzerland from stainless steel and 18-karat gold and features a clean silvered flinqué dial. It's powered by a Swiss-made calibre 1847 MC automatic movement that can be viewed through the exhibition case back and secures with a matching bracelet or an interchangeable navy alligator strap.
Hermès Slim d’Hermès Titane
The 'Slim d’Hermès Titane' is Hermès Timepieces' most casual watch to date, but it's still something quite special. Appropriately slender, it has a 39.5mm titanium case and is powered by the streamlined H1950 movement, which allows it to sit neatly on your wrist. The tonal anthracite dial features a smaller snailed dial set with Arabic numbers with the 12 and 6 o'clock markers in the house's signature orange. Turn it over to admire the workings and repeated 'H' finishing.
