10 fantastic collaborative projects together make up the MR PORTER 10th Anniversary Luxury Watch Collection.
MR PORTER partners with 10 prestigious watch brands to create a one-of-kind exclusive collection to celebrate its 10th anniversary.
To mark the first decade as the leading, global luxury destination for men’s style, MR PORTER has partnered with 10 global watch brands to curate unique pieces and narrative around the number “10”. MR PORTER worked alongside Baume & Mercier, Bell & Ross, Cartier, IWC Schaffhausen, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Oris, Panerai, Ressence, Roger Dubuis, and Vacheron Constantin to produce this symbolic and highly collectable collection. Jaeger-LeCoultre and Vacheron Constantin have both expanded their narrative from a single model to a wider series. Jaeger-LeCoultre has taken the iconic Reverso and created exclusive engraved pieces across five cities around the world – Hong Kong, London, Milan, New York, and Paris. Vacheron Constantin has delved into its Les Collectionneurs archive to source 10 vintage pieces across its Overseas, Prestige de la France, 2215 and 222 models among others, to curate a unique collection especially for MR PORTER’s 10th anniversary. Each watch has been carefully restored by Vacheron Constantin’s dedicated restoration master watchmakers. For MR PORTER’s 10th anniversary, Baume & Mercier has kept everything that makes the Clifton Baumatic such a bankable option and introduced some bespoke alterations especially for Mr.Porter. Produced in a limited run of just 30, available only on MR PORTER, this Baumatic has been decked out in the hit colour of 2021.
In honour of Mr.Porter’s 10-year milestone, high-end watchmaking brand Bell & Ross has dusted Bell & Ross BR05 Chrono, its newest reference with a little glamour, resulting in a BR05 Chrono that’s ready to party. Limited to 10 pieces, each individually numbered, it introduces a new dial colour that in the cold light of day appears anthracite grey, but from some angles and under softer light has richer, almost maroon tones.
Produced as a limited edition of 100, Cartier Santos de Cartier for Mr. Porter comes with a set of 18-carat white-gold cufflinks, set with hawk-eye semi- precious stones, and is presented in a custom-made box. Each watch is individually numbered from one to 100.
For Mr.Porter anniversary celebrations, Ressence has given the Ressence Type 1 Slim MRP2 watch a green dial and matching rubber strap, an interesting nod to functional, military-spec hardware on this most avant-garde design. It also, perhaps, pays a sly tribute to Ressence’s own recent 10th anniversary celebration, which was marked by a series of limited-edition green watches.
Alongside the watch collection, London-based accessories brand Rapport have created an exclusive leather single-watch case, with ‘10’ stamped in gold on each side.
Watch Collection Price Range: £2,840 / €3,200 / $3,250 to £139,000 / €161,000 / $158,000.
