The online retailer is venturing into a new fashion sector.

Net-a-Porter is known for being a one-stop-shop for all things designer. But there was one accessory, in particular, the brand noticed people were gravitating to more than others: watches. They decided to launch new watch brands and styles to the site, including Jaeger-LeCoultre, IWC, Vacheron Constantin, Hermès, CartierAudemars Piguet, and Piaget.

The launch of new watch brands comes at the same time as sister site Mr Porter debuts a unique timepiece partnership. Jaeger-LeCoultre and Mr Porter are launching the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Kingsman Knife watch. It's a limited edition run of just 100 timepieces, specially adapted for The King's Man, the upcoming Kingsman origins film directed by Matthew Vaughn. The watch will be available exclusively on Mr Porter, as a key part of The King's Man 'costume to collection', from July 20 to September 6.
