They say the best things come in threes, and with that in mind Victor presents the first in an occasional series on our perfect picks. Whether it’s watches or whiskies, you can rest assured that everything we select comes with expert knowledge and Victor’s seal of approval attached. To kick off, Mr Porter’s accessories buyer Simon Spiteri introduces a trio of timepieces from entry-level to another level
When the Sekford team set about researching the history of horology, they acquired an appreciation for the intricate lettering and clarity of pocket-watch dials. Exemplifying the quintessential functionality of traditional timepieces, the brand’s Type 1A Gold and Cordovan Leather Watch is clean-lined, classic and ageless. It’s been meticulously crafted in Switzerland with a gold PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) bezel, which was originally used by the military to reduce friction and wear. This fuss-free model has a sleek white face and a black leather strap, offset by pared-back indexing.
Zenith is an established brand with a strong heritage and history of watchmaking, yet still enjoys an under the radar appeal. With a beautiful design and retro look, the El Primero Chronomaster 1969 Stainless Steel and Alligator Watch is a pure classic, and the perfect addition to your collection.
The Ressence Type 3 Titanium and Leather Watch is a feat of industrial design, pushing the boundaries of the industry. The result of years of dedicated research and development, its concept and construction is distinctive and forward-thinking, with a clean aesthetic. Very limited in production, Ressence is an exciting independent brand – and Mr Porter is proud to be the exclusive online retailer.
