Another week has come and gone, which means another edition of our regular MR PORTER x Haulogerie: Watch Picks of the Week is due. In this week's instalment, we'll be featuring some amazing watches from watchmakers like Hermès, Piaget, IWC and Panerai. Enjoy!
Girard-Perregaux 1966 Date and Moon Phases
Girard-Perregaux's '1966' collection is named for the year it won the Neuchâtel Observatory Centenary Prize for its technical innovation and precise chronometry. Engineered in Switzerland with an in-house-built GP03300-0115 automatic movement, this stainless steel watch has a silver opaline dial with an easy-to-read date display and moon-phase indicator. It has a black leather strap and features an exhibition case back that reveals the engraved Côtes de Genève finish.
IWC Pilot's Mark XVIII Le Petit Prince Edition
IWC has been paying tribute to aviator and author Mr Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's story The Little Prince for over a decade now - it's packed full of philosophical anecdotes that provide endless inspiration. Encased in sapphire glass and durable stainless steel, this 'Pilot's Mark XVIII' watch is engraved on the case back with an original illustration of the tale's lovable character. It's powered by 30110-calibre movement with a substantial 42-hour power reserve should you leave it off for a day or two, while the soft-iron inner case keeps this timepiece safe from magnetic field interference.
Panerai Luminor Logo PAM01084
Panerai's 'Luminor Logo' novelty was presented to celebrate the collection's 70th anniversary - first released in the 1950s for the Italian navy, Luminor then made its debut on the international Haute Horlogerie market back in 1998. Maintaining the original silhouette and the watchmaker's patented crown protector, this timepiece is powered by a calibre P.6000 hand-wound movement with Incabloc® anti-shock technology and features a black dial and matching brushed-leather strap with contrasting ecru topstitching.
Hermès Slim Titane
Hermès Timepieces' 'Slim Titane' watch is so elegant in its simplicity - the sleek dark-grey dial features only cutout Arabic numerals and a second sub-dial. It's powered by a slender H1950 automatic movement that's visible through the sapphire glass crystal caseback and fitted with an alligator strap with an orange interior that peeks through.
Polo Skeleton Diamonds
Piaget redefined the category of sport watches when it introduced the 'Polo' back in 1979 - this skeletonised model is the latest evolution of the now iconic style. Designed to showcase technical excellence, it's been engineered in Switzerland with an ultra-thin calibre 1200S1 automatic movement that's housed in an 18-karat white gold case and features an engraved coat of arms on the micro-rotor. It's framed with graduated prong-set diamonds along the bezel and fitted on a classic blue alligator strap.
Panerai Luminor Base Logo PAM01086
The 'Luminor' is one of the most successful lines in Panerai's history, having initially been developed for the Italian navy in the 1950s. True to the collection's minimalism, this 'Base Logo' iteration is built with a signature sandwich dial nestled into a 44mm brushed stainless steel case and decorated with the brand's official logo. The P.6000 movement is operated by hand to ensure absolute precision.
