This July, luxury brand Harrods has teamed up with some of your favourite names in haute horlogerie for an extraordinary campaign. Dubbed Re-Editions, the limited edition run sees Harrods partnering with living legends such as Audemars Piguet, Hublot, and Cartier just to name a few. Each timepiece was created as a prime representation of what makes each brand so significant in the first place. In other words, from every release in the collection you can expect a watch that’s quintessential by design. These unforgettable Re-Edition timepieces are available exclusively through Harrod’s until Monday 24th July 2017. Read on for a highlight reel.
Hublot Special Edition Classic Fusion 35mm Chronograph Watch
Hublot and Harrods present a powerful chronograph that ably pairs the best of craftsmanship and quality. This limited edition masterpiece injects new life into Hublot’s Classic Fusion watch. Fresh specs include a half-Arabic numeral dial, composite resin adornments and two interchangeable (rubber or alligator skin) straps. Throw in superb self-winding chronograph movement and 42 hours of power reserve and you’ve made a classic all the more so. With only 20 made, this one screams instant collectible.
Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Day-Date 39.5mm Watch
Handmade in Geneva, the Re-Edition Vacheron Constantin Traditionelle Day-Date watch exudes pure, brilliant luxury. The case flaunts 18 karats of gorgeous rose gold. A sapphire crystal case back displays automatic 2475 SC caliber with bi-directional winding. The genuine alligator skin strap hosts an 18kt pink gold buckle. Stunning.
Richard Mille McLaren F1 RM50-03 Watch
Beautifully sporty and insanely sophisticated, the Richard Mille Re-Editions entry is horology love at first sight for those who relish a bold aesthetic. Thanks in part to an entirely new case material known as Graph TPT, the McLaren F1 RM-50-03 is the world’s lightest split-seconds tourbillon chronograph. Pair that with an unmistakable open-face design and this watch will be turning heads as consistently as a winning Formula 1 race car.
Roger Dubuis Excalibur Knights of the Round Table II Watch
Get your game (of thrones) on with the Re-Editions Roger Dubuis watch. It’s as legendary as knighthood itself. The Excalibur couples a 45mm white gold case with a distinguished jade dial and alligator strap. However, what really makes this instant champion shine is the mind-blowing engraving on the dial. Made up of 12 handcrafted 6.5mm bronze knights (one for each numeral marker), the display is too defiantly outstanding to ignore. There can be only one. This one.
Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic Titanio 44mm Watch
For decades, Italy’s Panerai Luminor was making naval watches in secret before unveiling the Marina to rapturous public reception in the 1990s. With their Re-Editions instalment, the brand honours its own groundbreaking story of mainstream triumph. The Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic Titanio hosts an eye-catching blue dial with luminous numerals. On the back, a sapphire crystal porthole offers a view of the prime P.9000 calibre mechanism. A protective locking lever bridge device pays tribute to the company’s own military origins.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph
Limited to 25 pieces and exclusive to Harrods, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Tourbillon Chronograph is timeless in its exceptionalism and nevertheless brimming with modern allure. A transparent sapphire crystal dial proudly displays the watch’s sophisticated inner mechanisms. A screw-locked crown, water resistance up to 100m and a 72 hour power reserve means you can take this baby pretty much everywhere. The Audemars Piguet Re-Editions watch comes available in two versions: titanium or 18-carat yellow gold. The former features a sandblasted finish and the latter employs a satin-brushed finish. This one’s a power player with the price tag to show for it.
IWC Schaffhausen Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Edition “Tribute to Mark XI”
The first IWC Mark XI Pilot’s Watch was released in 1949 to RAF navigators. Equipped with an anti-magnetic soft inner case and extra-sturdy glass, the watch was able to endure the harshest of flying conditions. Now thanks to the Harrods Re-Editions campaign, the IWC legend returns with much of the original technology intact. Those resilient features are then joined by anti-reflective sapphire glass, a khaki webbed strap and a self-winding power reserve.
Cartier Panthere Joueuse Watch
If you’re seeking the perfect gift for a woman of taste and style, look no further. The Cartier Panthere hosts a downright jaw-dropping panther design that incorporates two moving discs and a bevy of white gold and diamonds on the bezel, dial and buckle. It’s also the first watch to utilise a 9918 MC movement. When we said “jaw-dropping”, we meant that her jaw will literally drop. Heck, yours might too.
