MR PORTER x Haulogerie: Watch the selections of the week # 45
MR PORTER x Haulogerie: Watch Picks of the Week is back, and for this week’s selection we’ll be offering watches with blue dials. Blue dial watches are amazing and super versatile, blending the worlds of casual wear with the ability to be worn in more formal settings. Some of the blue dial watches we will be featuring include pieces such as Cartier, Vacheron Constantin, and Parmigiani Fleurier. Enjoy!
Cartier Santos de Cartier
A watchmaking icon for over a century, the Cartier Santos de Cartier is a remarkable timepiece and a true generational piece, highlighting the house’s stylistic approach to watchmaking.
I particularly like the contrast between the deep blue of the dial and the cold steel of the case, accentuated by the multiple finishing techniques applied.
Geosphere of Montblanc 1858
The Montblanc Geosphere 1858 is a superb complication of world time that combines the durability of titanium and ceramic in a package that is wonderfully portable and absolutely stunning.
The two dome-shaped globes surrounded by a 24-hour scale that indicate day and night top off what is a visceral treat.
Girard-Perregaux 1966 Automatic
The stunning blue sunray-finished dial is like the proverbial cherry on what is the very attractive Girard-Perregaux 1966 Automatic. It’s a classic dress watch that goes very well with the whole vibe of the 1966 collection.
It’s a watch that you can dress up or take off very easily, and it’s a watch that I think makes for a wonderful versatility.
Ulysse Nardin Freak X
Contemporary, novel, avant-garde and wonderfully innovative, the pioneer Freak X is a pioneering effort by Ulysse Nardin. I love the rotating carousel and the ultra modern look of the case. That’s more watch than you’ll ever need.
From a daring standpoint, you really can’t go wrong with the Ulysse Nardin Freak X, it’s a timepiece that pays homage to the intricacies of the house’s past while looking forward to the future of watchmaking.
Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Automatic
The Patrimony collection from Vacheron Constantin is a collection steeped in tradition, and it is one of the finest collections of dress watches in the world. This particular variant of the Patrimony Automatic features a rose gold case with a blue dial whose hue changes depending on its lighting environment.
From slender hands to long hour markers and a discreet date window, everything about the Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Automatic screams timeless classicism.
Parmigiani Fleurier Kalpagraphe Chronograph Limited Edition
About as original as it gets, the limited-edition Parmigiani Fleurier Kalpagraphe chronograph embodies the notion of individuality. From the highly architectural look of the laser-cut dial to the tapered barrel-shaped titanium case and bright blue running through, the Parmigiani Fleurier Kalpagraphe Limited Edition Chronograph is certainly different.
And while different isn’t always better, in the case of the Limited Edition Parmigiani Fleurier Kalpagraphe Chronograph, it works entirely in favor of the coin and is clearly the focal point of the watch.
