Porsche Design has created an exclusive new chronograph watch to accompany the Porsche 911 Sport Classic car.
Dedicated to Porsche fans and classic car lovers, the latest limited-edition 911 Sport Classic car series revives design flair of the 1960s and early 1970s.
The Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Sport Classic has been created to mark the launch of this unique car. It brings the spirit of the 1960s to the wrists of drivers of the vehicle – only 911 Sport Classic owners will have access to the new watch. Intricate details inspired by the new limited-edition Porsche model make this watch a statement piece.
The new Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Sport Classic impresses with its sporty design, consistent precision and high-quality workmanship. The two-tone watch housing made of lightweight, durable titanium – finished in natural titanium or black –is the centerpiece of the design.
The dial and hands are based on the Heritage Design tachometer: one glance at the white hands, green digits, and scale markings is all it takes to identify the decade that inspired the Chronograph 911 Sport Classic.
For the first time, Porsche Design is offering a range of different dials for the timepiece, all of which are in keeping with the main theme and design highlights of the new Porsche 911 Sport Classic.
In addition to the classic, matte black dial of the Heritage Design, drivers can choose either the iconic Sport Classic stripes in Light Sport Grey or the 1960s-style Pepita pattern, which also makes an appearance on the upholstery inside the vehicle.
The embossed Porsche Design icon is made of gold to match the Porsche logo at the rear of the vehicle and the limited-edition badge inside it. There is more gold-colored lettering on the running seconds dial, which reads ‘911 Sport Classic Lim. Series.’
All these features are protected by sapphire crystal with hard coating and sevenfold anti glare properties to prevent disruptive reflections.
Inside the new watch there is the COSC-certified WERK 01.200 Porsche Design mechanical chronograph caliber. The flyback function allows the wearer to start, stop and reset the seconds hand with a single action. The laser-engraved ‘Start/Stop’ and ‘Reset’ buttons highlight the functions of the timepiece.
The design of the 360-degree winding rotor is based on the wheel options available for the 911 Sport Classic and includes a cover that looks like the vehicles center wheel lock and features the historic Porsche Crest.
The two wristbands are provided with the watch – one in sophisticated black, one in elegant Classic Cognac – are inspired by the interior of the car: they are made of the same leather used for the upholstery of the limited-edition vehicle and are finished with an embossed ‘911.’
A quick-change system makes it easy to switch the leather straps without the need for any extra tools.
The Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Sport Classic is available exclusively to owners of the 2023 Porsche 911 Sport Classic.
