Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3 RS

Porsche Design has launched the 911 GT3 RS chronographs exclusively for buyers of the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS and GT3 RS with the Weissach Package.

Made of titanium and glass-bead blasted, the light-weight yet durable case comes in black or a natural finish. It is water-resistant up to 5 bar (50 meters). The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, with seven-fold antireflective coating on both sides, guarantees optimum readability. Chronograph pushers with laser engravings of ‘Start/Stop’ and ‘Next Lap’ highlight the motor-racing origins of these timepieces.

The carbon-fiber dial comes with white hour and minute indexes made of ceramic Super-LumiNova® luminous material. The hands in white, black and yellow evoke the motorsport DNA of these chronographs.

The matte black seconds disc at 9 o’clock features white ‘911 GT3 RS’ lettering, red and white curbs design, and a ‘BORN IN FLACHT’ imprint in the center of the seconds disc.

The chronograph second and 30-minute counter display precise proof as to whether the best time has been beaten upon crossing the finish line. The Porsche Design watch configurator offers a selection of nine colors for the customized ring around the dial.

Made of titanium and in the selected case color, the case-back of the timepiece can be customized with text up to 12 characters long, such as the vehicle identification number (VIN), for example. The sapphire-crystal case back provides a clear view of the rotor and the other movement parts.

Made of titanium or titanium with black titanium carbide coating, the bezel has a pulsometer scale. The bezel is also available with a tachymeter or minute display.

Equipped with the COSC-certified Porsche Design WERK 01.200 with a flyback function, the Porsche Design 911 GT3 RS chronograph is an ideal timekeeping instrument for racing drivers and professionals. In addition, the winding rotor reflects the wheel rim design of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

The Weissach RS Rotor features the same rim design as the lightweight magnesium forged wheel that is an exclusive component of the 911 GT3 RS with the Weissach Package.

The colors available are Brilliant Silver, Neodyme, Black Satin, Dark Silver, Indigo Blue, and Pyro Red. The stylish finishing touch is the new black rotor cap, which echoes the wheel’s center lock with the RS logo emblazoned in Brilliant Silver.

The leather strap included with the timepiece is made of genuine Porsche vehicle leather and is an extension of selected interior elements.

These straps features elaborate perforation and backing made of Race-Tex in the selected accent color (GT Silver or Guards Red) as well as the decorative stitching made of vehicle yarn in the accent color.

The chronograph can also be equipped with high-quality metal straps made of titanium. In addition, carefully crafted leather straps are available in the original Porsche colors of the 911 (992) configurator. All straps come with a quick-change mechanism and a folding clasp with pushers that match the case color.

The Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3 RS is available exclusively for buyers of the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS and 911 GT3 RS with the Weissach Package. This watch has a starting price of $10,950. It is available for purchase at Porsche dealerships and online at http://www.porsche-design.com.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Sport Classic

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.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Sport Classic

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.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Sport Classic

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.

Porsche Design Chronograph 1 All Black Numbered Edition

With the Chronograph 1 – All Black Numbered Edition, Porsche Design is bringing the next generation of the legendary 1972 classic back to the market.

Based on the design of the Chronograph 1 – 1972 Limited Edition, of which 500 pieces were originally produced and sold, and which was released in January 2022 to celebrate Porsche Design’s 50th anniversary, the new Chronograph 1 – All Black Numbered Edition features numerous upgraded details. The inimitable design of the original wristwatch has retained its legendary status. But the time has come to write a new chapter in the history of the Chronograph I.

Porsche Design Chronograph 1 All Black Numbered Edition

Starting in November, this exclusive timepiece will be released as a limited series, with a maximum of 1,000 timepieces produced per year worldwide. The sequential numbering on the back of the housing makes each piece truly one of a kind.

Manufactured at Porsche Design Timepieces AG, the in-house watch-making facility in Solothurn, Switzerland, the Chronograph 1 – All Black Numbered Edition pays further tribute to the iconic original and will continue to exude the essence of Porsche Design long after the anniversary year is over.

Porsche Design Chronograph 1 All Black Numbered Edition

The Chronograph 1—All Black Numbered Edition is reminiscent of the pure design of the completely black timepiece from 1972.

In similar fashion to its revolutionary predecessor, the Chronograph 1 — All Black Numbered Edition impresses with its matte-black dial. It was the first time F. A. Porsche had succeeded in transferring his idea of the design, aesthetics, and functionality of a sports car to a watch.

The easily readable dial behind anti-reflective glass was inspired by the dashboard in the cockpit of the Porsche 911. The crown and wristband feature the current Porsche Design logo. On the back, the sapphire-crystal case back reveals the Porsche Design icon of the winding rotor.

Porsche Design Chronograph 1 All Black Numbered Edition

The double-sided, seven-layer anti-reflective and scratch-resistant sapphire-crystal glass with its hardened coating ensures optimal readability, no matter what time of day it is. The tachymeter and the day/date display use the current Porsche font. Last but not least, the minute hand captures the tapered design once optimized by F. A. Porsche.

The ‘All Black’ wristwatch is powered by a mechanical, COSC-certified WERK 01.140 chronometer for maximum precision. Details such as the all-black coated titanium detachable wristband with minutely adjustable folding clasp breathe new life into this historic classic: a unique and timeless precision instrument that carries the Porsche Design DNA through and through — today as much as in the past.

Porsche Design Chronograph 1 All Black Numbered Edition

Like all chronographs manufactured by Porsche Design, this wristwatch is made by hand with a keen eye for detail. Porsche Design has had its own exclusive manufacturing company in the Swiss town of Solothurn since 2014: Porsche Design Timepieces AG.

Porsche Design Chronograph 1 All Black Numbered Edition

The Chronograph — All Black Numbered Edition can now be pre-ordered online as well as in Porsche Design Stores and from selected watch retailers for €8,950.

Porsche Design Chronograph 1 – 1972 Limited Edition

Porsche Design has marked the 50th anniversary of the iconic Chronograph I by unveiling a special edition timepiece.

Developed by Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche in 1972, the Chronograph I is a timeless, sporty precision instrument with purist design. With it, the designer of the legendary Porsche 911 transported the design principles of the automotive world to another product category.

Porsche Design Chronograph 1 – 1972 Limited Edition

Moreover, the Chronograph I was the world’s first completely black watch. For the first time, the designer successfully achieved his idea of transferring the design, aesthetics and functionality of a sports car to a watch. The readability of the dial, for example, was derived from the dashboard in the cockpit of the car. Porsche Design has repeatedly mastered this transfer of ideas and the link between the two worlds ever since.

Porsche Design Chronograph 1 – 1972 Limited Edition

The black Chronograph I drew inspiration from the anti-glare displays in the cockpit of a sports car: with a matte black dial, a red stopwatch second hand, luminescent hour indices and high-quality anti-glare crystal for optimum readability.

Porsche Design Chronograph 1 – 1972 Limited Edition

Revolutionary at the time, today the watch is regarded as the perfect combination of design know-how and engineering excellence. It became an icon that inspired the likes of racing drivers Clay Regazzoni and Mario Andretti, and even made an appearance on the wrist of Tom Cruise in the blockbuster film ‘Top Gun’. The groundbreaking design paved the way for numerous other Porsche Design products.

Porsche Design Chronograph 1 – 1972 Limited Edition

To mark the 50th anniversary, the ‘It’s About Time’ campaign highlights the special significance of time for Porsche Design in all its facets. Highlights include the reissued Chronograph I, marking the first product design by F. A. Porsche, and a restored Porsche Targa from 1972, which nods to the birth of the brand.

Porsche Design Chronograph 1 – 1972 Limited Edition

To celebrate the milestone, Porsche Design is reissuing the Chronograph I for the first time as a new version that pays homage to the original in nearly every detail.

Limited to 500 watches, the Chronograph 1 – 1972 Limited Edition traces a straight line back to 1972, but is technically state-of-the-art – developed and manufactured at Porsche Design’s in-house watchmaking facility in Solothurn, Switzerland.

Porsche Design Chronograph 1 – 1972 Limited Edition

The dial, crown, clasp and case-back bear the historic Porsche Design logo. The tachymeter scale around the dial and the day and date indicators feature the same typography from 1972. The baton hands, too, reprise the original design. Optimal readability is ensured by the luminescent hour indices, sapphire crystal with hard coating and sevenfold anti-glare treatment on both sides.

Porsche Design caliber WERK 01.140

The anniversary edition is equipped with a newly developed COSC-certified Porsche Design automatic movement, the WERK 01.140 caliber, which guarantees maximum precision. Unlike the original, the Chronograph 1 – 1972 Limited Edition is not made of stainless steel. Instead, the case, band and clasp are made of high-quality titanium. This is the same motorsport-tested material that Prof. F. A. Porsche used in the production of a chronograph in 1980 – a first for the watch industry at the time.

Porsche Design Chronograph 1 – 1972 Limited Edition

The 1972 Porsche 911 S 2.4 Targa has also returned in impressive fashion as a stunning one-off classic. The car, which bears the unmistakable design signature of Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, has been restored as part of a unique project by Porsche Classic in close collaboration with Porsche Design. Much of the design input came from Roland Heiler and Studio F.A. Porsche in Zell am See.

The vehicle features original historic fabrics such as the black Sport-Tex chequered flag upholstery, and is embossed with ‘50 Years of Porsche Design Edition’ on the side stripes, headrests and dashboard, among other elements – all marking the brand’s milestone year. The anniversary model also picks up the color scheme of the legendary Chronograph I designed by Ferdinand Alexander Porsche in 1972, with black dominating both inside and out.

Porsche Design Sport Chrono 39mm

Porsche Design expands its Sport Chrono collection with new 39mm watches.

In 2020, Porsche Design launched the Sport Chrono Collection, a new collection inspired by the instrument cluster of the Porsche Design Sport Chrono package. It combines classic design features, materials and performance characteristics of Porsche sports cars and transfers them directly into a wristwatch. While the first generation of the Sport Chrono Collection debuted in a 42- millimeter titanium case, the new models feature a diameter of 39 millimeters – a first for Porsche Design.

Porsche Design Sport Chrono 39mm

When the legendary Porsche 911 was first launched in 1963, the dashboard instruments included an electric timepiece as part of the 5-tube instruments. In the early 2000s, Porsche added an additional central instrument that was placed prominently in the middle. Initially displaying lap times, it was continuously refined to provide additional control functions for various engine and chassis components as well as the exhaust system. As part of this “Sport Chrono Package,” it was not a classic three-hand clock on the dashboard, but rather an instrument with a digital display and a single hand.

Porsche Design Sport Chrono 39mm

In 2020, the Sport Chrono package was expanded to include an exclusive chronograph from Porsche Design, the Porsche Design Subsecond clock. Offered in manufacture assembly, featuring a high- end metal dial with radial cut, ceramic indices with Superluminova coating and metal hands, the analog chronograph creates sporty and elegant accents in the cockpit. The specially developed incident-light technology ensures optimum readability inside the car – from every angle, at all times. The Porsche Design Sport Chrono package is currently available in the Porsche Panamera and Taycan models.

Porsche Design Sport Chrono 39mm

For the first time, Porsche Design has chosen a case diameter of less than 40 millimeters, which lends the models an even more elegant aesthetic and appeals to watch lovers with smaller wrists. The Sport Chrono Subsecond models with running seconds at 6 o’clock are powered by the Porsche Design caliber WERK 03.200 with COSC certification.

Porsche Design Sport Chrono 39mm

The automatic movement is equipped with the Porsche Design Icon rotor, which guarantees powerful winding. The timepieces are available with a black, blue or brown dial and color-coordinated leather straps made of genuine Porsche car leather.

Porsche Design Sport Chrono 39mm

Additional features of characteristic Porsche Design are the seven-fold anti-reflective sapphire crystal with hard coating, the high-quality leather strap made of genuine Porsche leather and the titanium folding clasp with safety pushers.

The lineup of the new Porsche Design 39 millimeter Sport Chrono wristwatch collection is available at a starting price of 4,450.00 euro (RRP).

Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC All Black

Porsche Design has launched an all black edition of its 1919 Globetimer UTC watch.

Introduced two years ago, Porsche Design’s 1919 Globetimer UTC is a GMT watch that offers intelligent functionality, optimized legibility, and convenient, easy operation. Previously available in three different color variants, the chronometer-certified timepiece features black titanium carbide coating and a black leather strap made of Porsche interior leather.

Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC All Black

Derived from the simple and precise handling of the Porsche double-clutch transmission, the display of the world’s 24 time zones can be adjusted in 1-hour increments – without the loss of the current time display – by simply pressing the form-fitting push-button which is ergonomically embedded into the case.

Each push of this button causes the short, local-time, hour hand to advance clockwise one position. When flying east, each push of the “+” button advances the second time zone by an interval of one hour. When flying west, pressing the “–” button causes the UTC hands to move in the opposite direction. All the while, the UTC hands automatically move, remaining in synchrony.

Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC All Black

To ensure this occurs at midnight and not at noon, the time needs to be set correctly just once. A circular window on the left-hand side of the dial facilitates this task: a white dot appears here during daytime hours, while the aperture remains black at night. Porsche Design has also taken into account the reference time indicated by a second, and clearly distinguishable hour hand with a distinctive luminous tip. This hand turns once every twenty-four hours, displaying the home time.

Perfect legibility is another essential feature. To intuitively display the time from any viewing angle, the dial’s radius was designed to be as large as possible, while the titanium case was made uncommonly slim. Well-balanced styling imbues this watch with a unique lightness, further enhanced by the handsomely shaped wristband.

Color contrasts, distinctive hands, indices and numerals combine with the generous use of nonradioactive Super-LumiNova luminous material to minimize the chance of misreading, even in poor visibility conditions. In addition, a sevenfold antireflective coating and an extra hard-coated treatment protect the sapphire crystal.

Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC All Black

The 1919 Globetimer UTC All Black is also powered by the Porsche Design Caliber Werk 04.110. The movement is equipped with a bidirectional winding rotor. It builds up a 38-hour power reserve with its balance paced at four hertz. The front of the caliber is equipped with an innovative time-zone mechanism specially developed by Porsche Design and manufactured by the Swiss complication specialist Dubois- Dépraz.

Before starting serial production, the mechanisms underwent several long-term tests in compliance with the strict criteria of Chronofiable®. The impact test’s candidates receive a blow equivalent to nearly 5,000 times their own weight, while each push-piece must withstand at least 10,000 switching cycles.

Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC All Black

Before encasing, each movement must also prove its timekeeping accuracy for fifteen consecutive days at the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC). The caliber must not lose more than four, nor gain more than six seconds per day, throughout the fifteen- day trial. During this time, the movement undergoes testing in five different positions and at three different temperatures.

The 42-millimeter titanium case with a black titanium carbide coating perfectly pairs with the black leather strap made of high-quality Porsche car leather. The watch is water-resistant to 100 meters.

The 1919 Globetimer UTC All Black is available at a starting price of 6,250 EUR (RRP).

Porsche Design Chronograph 718 Cayman GT4 RS

To coincide with the launch of the new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS, Porsche Design presents a matching timepiece with racing DNA that is only available to owners of the sports car.

The Chronograph 718 Cayman GT4 RS combines the style-defining design elements, materials, and high-performance qualities of the four-wheeled 718 family, and brings the character of the iconic Porsche brand to the wrist.

Porsche Design Chronograph 718 Cayman GT4 RS

The timepiece is powered by the Porsche Design WERK 01.200 caliber. Its flyback chronograph mechanism permits the starting, stopping, and resetting of successive time intervals in just one operation. The automatic movement has been certified by the Swiss COSC testing institute, guaranteeing the highest precision and performance.

Porsche Design Chronograph 718 Cayman GT4 RS

One of the basic concepts of the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS is that less is more – at least when it comes to weight. That is why titanium is used for some of the engine components that are constantly exposed to extreme stress. This exceedingly tough and incredibly light, high-tech material is perfect for withstanding heavy loads, and is used for parts such as the connecting rods.

Porsche Design Chronograph 718 Cayman GT4 RS

The lightweight construction concept applied to the vehicle is reflected in the new Chronograph 718 Cayman GT4 RS, which, like all Porsche Design timepieces, has a titanium case. The wristwatch’s relationship to the motorized 718 finds expression in other refined details: the matte black and anti-reflective dial, for example, is inspired by the sports car’s rev counter.

Porsche Design Chronograph 718 Cayman GT4 RS

Just like the elements on the pared-back and highly modern instrument panel in the cockpit, the Signal Yellow sub dials and hands of the chronograph contrast with the dial. The ‘GT4 RS` logo and stylized checkered flag on the running second at 9 o’clock make the purpose of this time-piece instantly clear – it is ideal to be worn at the racetrack. A colored ring in Arctic Gray also adorns the dial’s rim.

Porsche Design Chronograph 718 Cayman GT4 RS

The Chronograph 718 Cayman GT4 RS can be further individualized in select markets*. As a result, the timepiece not only bears the distinctive Porsche signature, but also that of the owner. Two different case colors – black or titanium – and two types of bezel are available, while the individual ring can be adapted to match the vehicle color.

Porsche Design Chronograph 718 Cayman GT4 RS

In addition, a special GT4 RS watch strap is available, made of the same black leather used in the vehicle as well as black Race-Tex with ‘GT4 RS` embossing and decorative stitching in Arctic Gray or Deep Sea Blue.

Additional straps can be ordered, made either of titanium or genuine Porsche interior leather in various colors, making it possible to alter the chronograph to suit any occasion or personal design preference. Each Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS customer who configures their timepiece will be issued an individual code with which to place their order at their authorized local Porsche dealer.

Porsche Design Chronograph 718 Cayman GT4 RS

The Porsche Design Chronograph 718 Cayman GT4 RS will be available for order through authorized Porsche dealerships beginning November 17, 2021 at a starting price of $8,400 (RRP).

* The configurator is available in Germany, the United Kingdom, the USA and Switzerland.

Porsche Design Chronograph in Honour of Hans-Joachim Stuck

Porsche Design has produced a special chronograph watch model to mark the 70th birthday of a motorsport legend. Individually configured by Hans-Joachim Stuck, the timepiece symbolises his most successful years in motorsport with Porsche.

The racing driver’s exclusive gift to himself is a highly customised chronograph that he specially designed with the custom-built Timepieces configurator from an endless number of possibilities.

Porsche Design Chronograph in Honour of Hans-Joachim Stuck

The custom-built chronograph created by Stuck is based on ‘his’ colours: the bright Speed Blue goes back to the paint finish of the Porsche 962 C in which the long-distance world champion twice won the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans, as well as his helmet decorated with white stars.

The tachymeter bezel and the performance indicator hand are design elements that provide a visual link to the driver’s career, with an unmistakable reference to motorsport. For the housing, Stuck opted for a black titanium carbide coating. The elegant yet sporty model features matte black hands, as well as a coloured ring in Carrera White Metallic.

Porsche Design Chronograph in Honour of Hans-Joachim Stuck

Speed Blue was also chosen for the strap, which is made of genuine Porsche vehicle leather, with decorative stitching made of the same yarn that’s used in the cars – in this case in GT Silver Metallic.

The oscillating weight of the mechanical self-winding Porsche Design chronograph calibre WERK 01.100 is designed in the shape of a Porsche wheel – a tribute to Stuck’s favourite vehicle away from racing – the iconic 911.

PORSCHE DESIGN WATCHES

Porsche Design is a premium lifestyle brand with particular focus on technically inspired products. It  was founded in 1972 by Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, grandson of Ferdinand Porsche (founder of the Porsche car company). Since 2003, Porsche Design has been a part of Porsche AG, the iconic German automobile manufacturer specializing in high-performance sports cars, SUVs and sedans.

The product portfolio of Porsche Design includes classic men’s accessories, a sport and fashion collection as well as electronic products and a men’s fragrance range. The products are designed in the Porsche Design Studio in Zell am See, Austria, and sold worldwide in the brand’s own stores, shop-in-shops, high quality department stores and exclusive retail outlets. Presently, Roland Heiler is the Chief Design Officer of Porsche Design Group.

With offices in Zell am See, Berlin and Ludwigsburg, Los Angeles and Shanghai, Porsche Design Studio also works for international clients, which has led to the creation of top-end consumer goods, household appliances and industrial products.

In April 2017, Porsche Design became a fully owned subsidiary of Porsche AG.

History of Porsche Design

Born in Stuttgart, the eldest son of Ferry Porsche headed up the Stuttgart-based sports car maker’s design studio from 1962 to 1972 – the period during which the Porsche 911 and the 904 race car were created. In 1972, he established his own design studio (Studio F. A. Porsche), relocating it two years later to Zell am See in Austria.

During the decades that followed, he designed accessories such as watches, spectacles and writing instruments. Working with a team of a dozen designers, he also styled a host of industrial products, household appliances and consumer products for well-known international companies. Today, the studio in Zell am See is one of the most renowned design houses in the world.

Ferdinand Alexander Porsche has designed all of the things men consider important. Many of his designs have become classics, which are even displayed at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The unusual breadth of his work includes writing instruments, lighters, boats and even the Skytrain in Bangkok.

Ferdinand Alexander Porsche has received many awards and honors for his work as a designer. The Industrial Design Forum Hanover (iF) chose him as their “1992 Prizewinner of the Year”, and the President of Austria made him an honorary professor in 1999.

Ferdinand Alexander Porsche was born on December 11, 1935 in Stuttgart, the eldest son of Dorothea and Ferry Porsche, who later founded the sports car maker. Even as a small boy, he accompanied his father and grandfather Ferdinand to the engineering design office in Zuffenhausen.

When he was seven, the family moved to Zell am See to avoid the bombing. As a child, “Butzi” – as he was fondly known to his family – enjoyed designing and building his own toys. Upon his return to Stuttgart, he attended the Waldorf School and then studied at the Ulm School of Design. In 1958, he started work at the design office of what was then Porsche KG.

He soon gave a vivid demonstration of his design skills when he created the first plasticine model of a successor to the 356 series. The Porsche 911, developed directly from his drawings, was shown for the first time in September 1963 at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Years later, it would be part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. In 1962, he was appointed head of the Stuttgart-based sports car manufacturer’s design studio. The designs of all of the racing and sports cars that left the factory in the 1960s bear his hallmark, including the legendary 904 Carrera GTS long-distance race car.

In Fall 2003, Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, together with other Porsche Design shareholders and Porsche AG, founded the Porsche Design Group (Porsche Lizenz- und Handelsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG), in which Porsche AG now holds a majority interest (65 % shares). The aim of this new company is to exploit the potential of the Porsche name in business areas unrelated to the auto industry and continue the life work of Ferdinand Alexander Porsche.

Porsche Design features prominently in these activities as well as the product portfolio for Porsche drivers and fans of the Porsche Design Driver’s Selection brand and the design work of the Porsche Design Studio in Zell am See.

In 2004, Porsche AG appointed Roland Heiler (who was the director of the Porsche Styling Studio in California at that time) as the Managing Director of Porsche Design. In 2005, Ferdinand Alexander Porsche decided to resign from the supervisory board of Porsche AG and to withdraw from active professional life.

In 2007, Roland Heiler became the Chief Designer of Porsche Design group. Ferdinand Alexander Porsche passed away at the age of seventy-six in 2012.

In 2017, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG has acquired the remaining 35 per cent of the shares in Porsche Lizenz- und Handelsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG (Porsche Design Group) from a Porsche family investment company, making it a wholly owned subsidiary.

In 2021, Porsche Design won the honorary title “Red Dot: Design Team of the Year 2021”.

Porsche Design Timepieces

The Porsche Design legendary Chronograph I was the world’s first black watch as well as the first product produced by the luxury brand. In 1972, the timepiece caused a furore, as the self-winding chronograph – a concept that had previously been inconceivable – was entirely black and provocatively plain.

By releasing this timepiece, Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche was anticipating a trend that, while revolutionary at the time, defines the watch industry today. In 1980, Porsche Design revolutionised the watchmaking world with the first timepiece made from titanium ever to be seen. 20 years later, this was followed by the first watch to feature an aluminium case.

The launch of the Indicator in 2004 saw the brand reach a new milestone: For the first time, this model combined chronograph functionality with a purely mechanical, jumping digital display. This was made possible thanks to the world’s most complex watch mechanism produced in a limited run: Four spring barrels are required to power all functions reliably and the mechanism comprises a total of more than 800 individual parts.

In March 2014, the Porsche Design Group (Porsche Lizenz- und Handelsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG) and Eterna AG Uhrenfabrik, based in Grenchen, Switzerland, ended their license agreement for the development, production and sale of high-quality watches. All services associated with the relevant Porsche Design watches will still be guaranteed by Eterna. In addition, the two companies are set to collaborate in various technical fields.

In July 2014, Porsche Design Group (Porsche Lizenz- und Handelsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG) founded a subsidiary in Switzerland to continue its tradition of offering high-quality timepieces.

Porsche Design Timepieces AG, based in the Jurasuedfuß region of Switzerland, is responsible for developing and producing exclusive Porsche Design timepieces; marketing and sales are overseen by the Porsche Design Group, which is based in Ludwigsburg, Germany.

As has been the case for more than 40 years, Porsche Design timepieces are positioned in an exclusive niche in the luxury watch category. The products are available around the world in the luxury brand’s stores and from selected leading retailers.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3

Porsche Design presents a special edition chronograph watch exclusively created for buyers of the new 911 GT3 sports car.

Just like the powerful 911 GT3 sports car, the new Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3 boasts flamboyant design, consistent performance, and exquisite craftsmanship. The principal design features, material selection, and performance characteristics of the 911 GT3 have shaped both the conceptualization and the making of the chronograph.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3 - 1

The high-tech titanium used for the case of the timepiece is derived from the lightweight principle in engine design, while the color and material choices were inspired by the vehicle’s equipment options.

The Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3 is available in two versions: a sporty version with an applied dial color ring in eye-catching Shark Blue, and a purist version with a color ring in black. As usual for Porsche Design timepieces, both of these models stand out due to their superb readability: just like in the cockpit, the hands and numbers in white and yellow on a black back-ground immediately catch the eye.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3

The strap of the chronograph is made of genuine Porsche vehicle leather with “GT3” debossing and includes stitching in contrasting colors – Shark Blue or GT Silver, depending on the version.

Thanks to Porsche Design’s innovative quick-change system, the strap – which comes in sizes medium and large – can be replaced easily and easily without the need for additional tools.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3

The Porsche Design caliber WERK 01.200 with flyback function combines starting, stopping, and zeroing in a single operation, making the 911 GT3 Chronograph the perfect racetrack companion. It is COSC-certified – a distinction awarded only to the most accurate of watches. The movement is powered by a custom winding rotor recreated from the design of the Porsche 911 GT3 wheels.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3

The GT3 wheel rotor is available in six colors analogous to those available for the vehicle configuration, exclusively for this chronograph and only for 911 GT3 owners. Each rotor is completed with a sporty miniaturized center lock featuring a silver GT3 logo. The casing is also directly linked to high-performance motorsport and is made of highly resistant, lightweight, and hypoallergenic titanium – just like the connecting rods in the Porsche 911 GT3 engine. High-tech components like these are usually only used in the most advanced racing motors.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3

The brand also offers more customization options in the markets where the new Porsche Design custom-built Timepieces Program is currently available – Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States. With the Porsche Design timepiece configurator, owners of the 911 GT3 can personalize and adapt additional details on the watch to perfectly match their dream sports car.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3

There are two color options for the case – natural titanium or black-coated titanium – as well as bezels featuring a sporty tachometer or classic minute scale. The dial ring can be customized within the GT3 color spectrum. The black Porsche sports car leather strap features “GT3” debossing and is adorned with contrasting stitches made from Porsche vehicle thread in four colors. For the first time, the all-new color Shark Blue is also available.

Alternatively, the band is available without embossing, in various colors of leather as well as in titanium. All of the options selected, and the price for the respective configuration, are displayed in real time. Upon completion of the configuration, the customer receives an individual code that can be used to order the personalized timepiece at their local authorized Porsche dealer.

The Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3 will be available in spring 2021 starting at $8,050 (RRP), and delivery takes eight to twelve weeks.

PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI WATCH GT 2

Created in collaboration with Huawei Consumer BG, this smartwatch combines Huawei’s innovative technology and Porsche Design’s pure and functional design philosophy. It is the first collaboration between these two companies.

The PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 features a streamlined titanium body that pays homage to high-speed supercar design. The bezel, with the iconic Porsche Design logo integrated at the top, is seamlessly incorporated into the watch face giving it a premium touch.

PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 - 2

The smartwatch comes with the innovative quick fit titanium link strap, which users can easily disassemble or adjust, and is made from titanium and polished with a rigorous sandblasting process for a perfect matte finish. Huawei’s new titanium buckle is accented with the Porsche Design Icon, and makes the process of putting on and taking off the watch quick and easy. The end result is a flawlessly designed smartwatch that is premium, mature and scratch-resistant, ideal for everyday wear and outdoor activities.

Two digital crowns feature Porsche Design’s iconic red circle and are a testament to the innovative and high-end manufacturing of the watch. With a gentle press, users can easily explore the various settings and configurations.

The customised Porsche Design watch faces are beautifully crafted and provide a sharp yet smart aesthetic. The classic and always-on watch face allows time to pass by elegantly on the wrist. Both the watch hands and numbers are easy to read at a glance. Less is more with the E-PURE watch face which takes the iconic analogue dial to the digital era.

PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 - 2

Motorsport-inspired racing lines displayed on the back of the PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI Mate 40 RS are transferred from the Smartphone to the racing watch face, paying homage to the brand’s sports car DNA and racing history. The smartwatch also offers an innovative stopwatch face that allows users to start timing with a tap of the screen.

The PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 is built with excellence from the outside in. The new smartwatch provides an impressive two-week long battery life, offering a reliable digital health and fitness manager for users.

The smartwatch supports data tracking for more than 100 workout modes, including indoor and outdoor sports such as golf driving range, skiing and mountain climbing amongst others. Combining exclusive and pure design, great durability and 50 metre water-resistance, the PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 is an ideal companion for all occasions.

PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 - 2

Advanced heart rate tracking is available via upgraded HUAWEI TruSeen™ 4.0+ heart rate monitoring technology and a 6-in-1 LED lens, which is installed on the delicate ceramic back of the watch. The lens is made of sapphire for better light penetration and accurate heart rate tracking, while the ceramic rear case feels comfortable on the skin.

The PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 offers comprehensive health monitoring around the clock and measures everything from heart rate, stress level, sleep quality and SpO2 level. In addition, the smartwatch supports all day continuous monitoring of SpO2 level, caring for users’ health day and night.

The PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 will be available end of November in select Porsche Design Stores, at specialty retailers, and online. A wireless charger, cable and a Fluoroelastomer strap are included with each order.

Porsche Design Sport Chrono Timepieces Collection

The new Porsche Panamera sports car incorporates an exclusive Porsche Design clock on its dashboard. This clock features a high-quality metal dial, ceramic indices and manufacture-made hands. Thanks to a specially developed lighting technology, the time is displayed in the fashion of a high-quality made wristwatch and offers perfect readability in poor light conditions and even in the dark.

In addition to the Sport Chrono Porsche Design clock designed for the car interior, the company introduces the Sport Chrono wristwatch collection.

Porsche Design Sport Chrono Timepieces Collection

The new product line, which includes a chronograph and three “three-hand models” with small second, combines classic design features, materials and the typical performance characteristics of sports car construction.

Porsche Design Sport Chrono Timepieces Collection

The automatic chronograph is powered by the C.O.S.C.-certified Porsche Design caliber WERK 01.100, while the three variants of the Sport Chrono Sub Second are equipped with the new, in-house developed Porsche Design caliber WERK 03.200, which also earned a C.O.S.C. chronometer certificate for proven accuracy.

Porsche Design Sport Chrono Timepieces Collection

Like the dashboard instruments, the automatic movement puts the display of the small seconds at six o’clock into the spotlight, highlighting once again Porsche Design’s watchmaking expertise and offering customers and friends of the Porsche brand the opportunity to wear a feature of their sports car on their wrist.

Porsche Design Sport Chrono Timepieces Collection

When the legendary Porsche 911 was first launched, the dashboard instruments included an electric timepiece as part of the 5-tube instruments. In the early 2000s, Porsche added an additional central instrument that was placed prominently in the middle.

Initially displaying lap times, it was continuously refined to provide more control functions for engine and chassis components as well as the exhaust system. As part of the so-called “Sport Chrono Package,” it was not a classic three-hand clock, but rather an instrument with a digital display and a single hand.

With the new Sport Chrono Package and Porsche Design’s Sub Second timepiece, the vision of combining a sports car with a perfectly readable instrument in the form of a premium wristwatch chronometer has become reality.

Porsche Design Sport Chrono Timepieces Collection

Available for the first time in the new Porsche Panamera models, it is an electrically powered clock. It is being offered in manufacture assembly, which features a high-end metal dial with radial cut, ceramic indices with Superluminova coating and metal hands. In combination with the specially developed incident-light technology, the very effect of Porsche Design timepieces is being transferred to the car interior.

Porsche Design Sport Chrono Timepieces Collection

The launch of the extended Sport Chrono Package is accompanied by the launch of the new Sport Chrono collection wristwatches, including a chronograph and three “three-hand models” with small second at 6 o’clock.

Porsche Design Sport Chrono Timepieces Collection

The Sport Chrono Sub Second models are powered by the newly developed in-house Porsche Design caliber WERK 03.200 with C.O.S.C. certification.

Porsche Design Sport Chrono Timepieces Collection

Available in Titanium & Black, Titanium & Blue or Titanium & Brown color combinations, they appeal not only with their stylish, reduced design, but also their titanium case. A hallmark of Porsche Design, titanium is water-resistant to 100 metres, extremely robust and highly comfortable to wear because of its particular light weight.

Porsche Design Sport Chrono Timepieces Collection

The same applies to the automatic chronograph with the Porsche Design caliber WERK 01.100. In contrast to the Sub Second chronometer models, which are equipped with a closed case back, the chronograph boasts a sapphire crystal case back.

Porsche Design Sport Chrono Timepieces Collection

The high-quality design and winding rotor with the P-Icon can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back. Other classic Porsche Design features include the sevenfold anti-reflective sapphire crystal with hard coating, the high-quality leather strap made from genuine Porsche interior leather and the titanium folding clasp with safety push buttons.

The models of the new Porsche Design Sport Chrono Timepieces Collection are available from September 2020 at a price from Euro 4,450 (RRP).

Porsche Design presents unique custom-built Timepieces programme

With the launch of a revolutionary programme based on production principles utilized in Porsche sports car manufacturing, Porsche Design is taking the creation of exclusive Swiss wristwatches to the next level. This is the first time the concept of a fully customised timepiece; perfectly tailored to match one’s dream Porsche, will enter into series production.

The new Porsche Design custom-built Timepieces programme started in Germany on July 1, 2020. It will be followed by the UK and US on September 1, 2020 at all participating Porsche Centers. The English version of the Internet Timepieces Configurator will also be available as of September 2020.

The Porsche Design watch configurator

The menu navigation and overall design of the new watch configurator are based on the well-established Porsche car configurator. Just like the Porsche 911 range, the watch is digitally visualised down to the smallest detail to provide customers with a realistic depiction of their dream timepiece.

Porsche Design presents unique custom-built Timepieces programme

The features, including the pricing for each respective configuration, are displayed in real time. A basic custom-built Timepiece starts at 4,950.00 Euros and, depending on the options selected, can range up to 11,600 Euros (recommended RRP including local taxes in Germany) and includes up to three additional leather straps. Orders are placed exclusively through Porsche Centres and delivery will take eight to 12 weeks.

The case

The first step in the virtual timepiece configurator is to select the case. The customer can choose between a glass-bead-blasted natural titanium case or a black titanium case coated in titanium carbide via PVD. The legendary design by F. A. Porsche has found its contemporary interpretation in the cases of the custom-built chronographs that are based on the Chronotimer Series 1.

Porsche Design presents unique custom-built Timepieces programme

The movement

With the launch of the Porsche Design custom-built Timepieces programme, the new in house caliber WERK 01.100, which features a 48-hour power reserve, enters series production for the first time. The highlight of this COSC-certified movement is the customisable winding rotor, featuring the wheel designs of the latest-generation Porsche 911. For the first time ever, Porsche Design is offering a timepiece with a completely customisable movement component.

From the classic 911 Carrera rim, including the two-tone Porsche Crest in the centre of the rotor, to the 911 Carrera Exclusive Design wheel version with a gold badge at its centre, there are six different rotor types to choose from. The colour on the rotor edge can also be customised, just like the outer edges of the wheels of a Porsche car. Porsche Design is also offering the original Porsche colour palette.

Porsche Design presents unique custom-built Timepieces programme

The rotors on the new watches correspond to a 1:22 scaled-down version of the original rim, adapted to the geometry of the timepiece. They are crafted with a level of precision down to five thousandths of a millimeter. The Porsche Crest, which measures around 50 mm on a vehicle rim, is a mere 3.3 mm wide and 4.4 mm high on the winding rotor cover. Nevertheless, the Porsche Crest still remains clearly visible to the naked eye.

The watchbands

The enormous amount of work put into this programme is most apparent in the metal and leather watchbands, which are available in three sizes. Pop-up menus in the configurator make selections easy. The metal bracelets are made of skin-friendly titanium and all versions feature individually screwed-down links.

Like the case variants, they are available in glass-bead-blasted natural titanium or black-coated titanium carbide. Additionally, there are two different closing mechanisms to choose from: a butterfly clasp with lateral buttons or seven-step fine adjustment.

Porsche Design presents unique custom-built Timepieces programme

All leather straps are crafted from the same hides used for Porsche automobile interiors and come in the 14 official interior colour options of the Porsche 911. The leather wristbands come with a butterfly clasp as well as side buttons for quick and easy release. For the stitching on the strap, a total of 19 different colours of genuine Porsche yarn are available, meaning that there are up to 300 different possible configurations.

Two additional bracelets can be designed and purchased per order and the configurator’s full range of options remains available for this selection. The new quick-change side button system makes it easy to change them without the use of any tools.

Custom-built dial and bezel

The dial is personalised via inlaid coloured rings, featuring minute markers in the style of the design-defining classic speedometer developed by Prof. F. A. Porsche. There are 27 Porsche 911 exterior and interior colours to choose from.

Even the watch hands can be personalised, with the customer able to choose either classic Essence in black or sporty Performance hands in matte-white with red tips. The watch’s bezel can also feature either traditional minute markers or a tachymeter for tracking speed or distance.

Porsche Design presents unique custom-built Timepieces programme

Custom laser engraving

Upon request, each Porsche Design custom-built Timepiece can be individualised with laser engraving on the back of the case, enhancing each timepiece with the ultimate in personal touches. This supplementary engraving can also be applied to the watch box, which is exclusive to the new watches.

Additionally, the corresponding car visuals can be requested for the emblem on the timepieces’ box. The fonts and lettering featured on the rear of the customer’s car can be applied as well. Alternatively, the customer has the option to select a graphic logo, such as the current 911 Carrera flyline.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition

Porsche Design and Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur mark a new milestone in their successful collaboration with the launch of the new Chronograph 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition. This is the first of four special limited-edition timepieces accompanying the launch of the 911 Heritage Design cars.

Inspired by the 1950s, 60s, 70s and 80s, these collector’s pieces bring the iconic looks of each era into the present. Focusing on authenticity and style-defining details, special colours and patterns are re-interpreted and brought back to life, complimented by a modern appearance and state-of-the-art manufacturing and technology.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition

Porsche Design is developing matching timepieces exclusively for future owners of Heritage Design cars. First in the series is the Chronograph 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition, which combines the classic design features, materials and performance characteristics of the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition, expanding the unique concept of this new sports car to the wrist of its owner.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition

The self-winding chronograph is powered by the Porsche Design caliber WERK 01.100, a new C.O.S.C. certified, in-house-developed chronograph movement, which guarantees maximum performance. Like the vehicles, the chronograph, which debuts in Porsche Design’s characteristic titanium case, is limited to 992 pieces.

Porsche Design has put a great deal of passion into reviving a part of Porsche history on the wrist that captures the unique charm of a style icon that is still as up to date today as it was 70 years ago. In its noble, purist form and with great attention to detail and authenticity, the Chronograph 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition refers to the legendary Porsche 356 and the iconic Porsche 911 Targa.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition

The design of the dial with a white second hand and green circles in the characteristic Phosphorus Green hue was inspired by their speedometers. The hour markers use the Porsche font and offer perfect readability in all lighting conditions thanks to their luminous Superluminova coating. Selected elegant accents are created by the gold-coloured Porsche Design logo and, on the seconds dial at nine o’clock, the Porsche logo, which also embellishes the rear of the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition.

Particular attention has also been paid to the strap, which is made from the same leather as that used for the interiors of Porsche sports cars. This harmoniously compliments the design and demonstrates a love of fine detail. It will be available in Bordeaux Red or Black, with a choice of two strap lengths for both. The seams are kept tone on tone for a particularly expressive look and the 911 embossing is a further tribute to the iconic sports car.

Like every Porsche Design timepiece, the Chronograph 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition is entirely made from titanium. Thanks to its extreme lightness, durability and resistance to corrosion, the high-tech material used in the construction of racing car engines ensures maximum performance and wearing comfort.

Precise timekeeping is guaranteed by the new Porsche Design Chronograph caliber WERK 01.100, which bears a chronometer certificate from the Swiss C.O.S.C.-Institute. Its rotor mimics the design of the Fuchsfelge (Fuchs wheel), which was originally developed for the first Porsche 911.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition

Based on the specification of the owner’s car, the watch rotor can be either high-gloss black or satin platinum. The historic Porsche crest also pays homage to the roots of the brand and adorns the rotor’s centre lock. The limited edition number that corresponds to that of the car is laser-engraved onto the bottom of the case back.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition

The Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition is exclusively available to order at Porsche dealerships worldwide to future owners of the Porsche 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition from June 2020 at an RRP of €10.950.

Porsche Design 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Blue & Leather (new version)

In 2019, Porsche Design introduced the 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Brown & Leather, a genuine manufactory chronograph that set new standards in the world of luxury wristwatches. Equipped with a complex flyback function with chronometer-certified precision, the Porsche Design Werk 01.200 represents state of the art.

In addition to its innovative inner workings, the timepiece, like its legendary role model, the Porsche 911, unites uncompromising functionality, thoroughly designed in all details, with an expressive sporty appearance. Now, Porsche Design launches this chronograph classic in a new edition with a bold colour combination. The dial and strap, made from Porsche interior leather, radiate a subtle blue hue.

Porsche Design 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Blue & Leather

Since its launch in 1963, the Porsche 911 sports car has been a synonym for the perfect combination of design and performance. Porsche Design’s timepieces translate the DNA code of the Porsche 911 into the design of a wristwatch.

The 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Blue & Leather continues the tradition of the company’s first timepiece, the Chronograph I, which Prof. F. A. Porsche introduced in 1972. The large-scale, high-contrast dial is all about legibility, so that the attention is automatically directed to the essentials, namely the time display and the measurement functions.

Clean Arabic numerals and bold markers combined with intense use of Super-Luminova increase the readability under difficult lighting conditions and at night. Seven-fold and hard coated on both sides, the sapphire crystal prevents all light reflections, thus guaranteeing optimum readability at all times.

Porsche Design 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Blue & Leather

All timepieces of the 1919 Collection – including the 1919 Chronotimer Flyback collection – are entirely made of titanium. Despite its low weight this high-tech material that stems from the world of motorsport is extremely resilient and resistant.

With the same volume, it is 46 percent lighter than stainless steel, but significantly stronger and also non-magnetic, anti-allergic as well as saltwater and heat resistant. Titan therefore offers an unparalleled wearing comfort on the wrist. In keeping with the lightweight construction principle, the case is designed as slim as technically possible.

The signature trademarks of the 1919 Collection are the characteristic openings on the lugs and their form-fitting transition into the bracelet.

These features not only eliminate the design-related disadvantage of classic horns – the connection via a spring bar – but also lend a unique lightness to the collection’s puristic aesthetics. The owner can literally feel the connection to the sports car on his wrist: the strap is made of original Porsche interior calf leather.

Porsche Design 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Blue & Leather

The 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Blue & Leather is powered by Werk 01.200. This chronograph calibre offers a flyback mechanism that allows the measurement of successive intervals, for example lap times on the racetrack.

It uses a single process for starting, stopping and resetting. Paced at 4 hertz, the automatic movement represents the culmination of Porsche engineering and watchmaking combined with its vehicle manufacturing expertise. The bridges are load/stress optimised.

The special architecture allows the unobstructed view of the fascinating mechanism of the flyback function through the sapphire crystal caseback and is a further proof of the implementation of the lightweight principle.

As is representative of Porsche Design, the movement is black. Its energy-optimised rotor with the signature engraved PD-Icon is PVD coated and partially crafted from tungsten. Extremely difficult to process, this material provides the necessary weight to guarantee a highly powerful winding. Werk 01.200 also bears a certificate of the Swiss C.O.S.C. institution, verifying the accuracy of its performance.

The 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Blue & Leather is available at a price of 5,950 Euros.

Porsche Design Chronotimer GP Ice Race Special Edition 2020

The GP Ice Race enters its second round: On February 1st and 2nd, 2020, the legendary historic ice race, which was revived in 2019 after almost 45 years, will take place for the second time.

Once again, the former airport in picturesque Zell am See will be the venue for a two-day high-performance race for professional and amateur racers on an icy course.

As the official timing partner of the event, Porsche Design has dedicated a special timepiece edition to the GP Ice Race.

Porsche Design Chronotimer GP Ice Race Special Edition 2020

With refined details, such as ice-blue and polar white accents on the dial, the Chronotimer GP Ice Race Special Edition reflects the unique spirit of the event.

The sporty and dynamic look of the automatic chronograph is complemented by a high-quality, stylishly perforated leather strap made of original Porsche interior leather. For the Porsche Design brand, whose roots are in Zell am See, it is both an honor and a duty to officially support the event in this capacity.

Porsche Design Chronotimer GP Ice Race Special Edition 2020

The Chronotimer GP Ice Race Special Edition from Porsche Design ensures perfect timing. As in all Porsche Design timepieces, the 42-mm case is made of lightweight titanium, which is also resilient. The characteristic black titanium carbide coating accentuates the sporty and elegant design. The matte black dial guarantees perfect readability and has a dynamic charisma.

Porsche Design Chronotimer GP Ice Race Special Edition 2020

The GP Ice Race logo pays tribute to the spectacular ice race, while the ice-blue and snow-white markers symbolize the tough conditions on the icy track. The mechanical engine, which ticks behind the blackened sapphire crystal of the case back, is a true classic of Swiss watchmaking: the ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic caliber, which already powered the Chronograph I, Porsche Design’s first watch in 1972.

Porsche Design Chronotimer GP Ice Race Special Edition 2020 caseback view

The inscription “GP ICE RACE” on the case back highlights the exclusive character of the timepiece. The harmonious color composition even extends to the bracelet, as the black leather strap with white contrast stitching is made from original Porsche interior leather and yarn and harmoniously completes the refined design.

The Special Edition enriches the exclusive Chronotimer Collection, which currently consists of 13 different model versions. The chronograph is available at http://www.porsche-design.com as well as selected Porsche Design stores and high-end retailers in Austria and Germany and retails for 4,952 Euro (RRP).

Porsche Design 911 Speedster Chronograph Limited Edition

This year, Porsche presents enthusiasts with an exceptional car by reviving and reinterpreting the spirit of the original Speedster. Celebrating this special occasion, Porsche Design delivers an exclusive chronograph dedicated to the new 911 Speedster.

The timepiece combines the classic design elements, materials, and performance features of the sports car, extending the unique feeling of Porsche to the wrist of its future owner. The chronograph is a joint development by the engineers from vehicle construction and motorsport, as well as the master watchmakers at Porsche Design Timepieces.

For this reason, transferring the vehicle concept to the matching chronograph was effortlessly achieved. Referring to the debut year of the Porsche 356 “Nr.1”, the 911 Speedster Chronograph and the 911 Speedster Chronograph with Heritage Design Package are limited to 1,948 models in total.

Porsche Design 911 Speedster Chronograph Limited Edition

Inspired by the “Intelligent Performance” of the 911 Speedster, the chronograph implements sophisticated technology. Porsche Design’s first proprietary movement, the Porsche Design Werk 01.200 with flyback function, powers the Chronograph.

The calibre, resulting from three years of development, allows for the timing of consecutive events by using a single pusher for starting, stopping, and resetting the chronograph. It represents the culmination of watchmaking skills combined with Porsche’s engineering and vehicle manufacturing expertise.

Porsche Design 911 Speedster Chronograph Limited Edition

In addition to being Porsche Design’s first proprietary movement, Werk 01.200 also bears a certificate of the Swiss C.O.S.C. institution, verifying the accuracy of its performance. The cut out of the movement’s barrel bridge exhibits both the flyback function and gear trains – Porsche’s lightweight design philosophy at its best.

The energy-optimised rotor, partially crafted from tungsten for a powerful wind and visible through the sapphire case back, resembles the wheel design from the car. Attached by a Porsche central locking with Porsche crest, the rotor – similar to the Speedster’s alloy wheels – is lacquered with black-silk gloss.

Porsche Design 911 Speedster Chronograph Limited Edition

The case, 42.0 x 15.3 mm and pressure-tested up to five bars, is made of titanium – the material of choice at Porsche Design since 1972. The high-tech substance, successfully used in engine construction for decades, is roughly 40% lighter than stainless steel.

Thanks to its hypoallergenic properties and lightweight characteristics, it offers maximum wearing comfort. A black titanium-carbide-coating reinforces the timepiece’s sporty design.

The Porsche Principle is also expressed on the dial. Made of lightweight carbon, it offers excellent legibility from every angle. Like the instrument cluster in the 911 Speedster, all displays are matte black to avoid reflection. An homage to the first 356, the numbers and markers are green, just like the tachometer of the legendary sports car.

Down to the last detail, the Chronograph 911 Speedster uses additional features to reference the first Porsche sports car: the ‘70’ on the tachymeter scale is color highlighted and the mechanical function display at 9 o’clock is adorned with the ‘911 Speedster’ logo. In addition, the limitation numbers of the sports car and the watch are identical, signifying the relationship between the two.

Porsche Design 911 Speedster Chronograph Limited Edition

Each Chronograph 911 Speedster comes with one black and one red leather strap in two different sizes [sizes M and L], which are fabricated from the same high-quality leather and yarn used in the seats of the car. Thanks to the interchangeable wristband system, the leather straps easily swap without tools.

Like its vehicle counterpart, the Porsche Design Chronograph 911 with Heritage Design Package references visual and tactile details of the 1954 356 Speedster. The lightweight titanium case reflects the color scheme of the sports car with Heritage Design Package, mirroring the classic hues of Porsche’s early race cars.

Like the instruments in the 911 Speedster, the matte-black dial features green and silver colored Arabic numerals, with a green “70” highlighting the tachymeter scale and referencing seven decades of Porsche sports cars. Also referential of the brand’s historic past are the Porsche Design logo at 3 o’clock and the ‘Speedster’ logo on the mechanical function display at 9 o’clock. Both are finished with golden accents.

Like the Chronograph 911 Speedster, Porsche Design’s proprietary movement calibre, Werk 01.200, powers the timepiece with Heritage Design Package, guaranteeing maximum performance through advanced technology.

Matching the alloy wheel of the Heritage Design Package, the lacquered rotor is attached to the movement by a Porsche central locking with Porsche crest. This is entirely dedicated to the historic design of the car.

Similar to the interior in the Heritage Design Package, the leather straps are fabricated from cognac-colored car leather with color coordinated thread. The limitation numbers on the case backs clearly connect the chronographs with the sports cars, which directly correspond with the limitation numbers of the vehicles.

Just as the 911 Speedster in the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur is customized according to the wishes of the future owner, the matching chronographs can also be custom-designed.

The design of the rotor can be chosen to match the vehicle’s rims.

Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC

The new 1919 Globetimer UTC by Porsche Design embodies a technologically innovative and aesthetically perfect combination of motorsport and timekeeping across all (time) boundaries.

With the new 1919 Globetimer UTC, the engineers and designers at Porsche Design have once again met the high standards set by the company’s founder. This new world-time wristwatch from Porsche Design sparks enthusiasm with a winning combination of radically simplified functionality and optimized legibility of the displays. No matter where in the world your travels take you, the simple push of a button resets the twelve-hour hand to show local time.

Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC

A day/night disc serves as an a.m./p.m. indicator, helping the wearer set the time for the correct half of the day in the new time zone. The date, linked to the local time, automatically shifts forward or backward when necessary. The minute and home time displays remain unaffected by the reset.

Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC

In 1972, Prof. F. A. Porsche began realizing his design ideas for a wide variety of everyday objects. A chronograph wristwatch was one of his first projects. He designed it in accordance with the same principles of perfect legibility, ergonomics and the instant recognition distinguishing the cockpit of the Porsche 911, which he designed.

Admired ever since, Porsche Design epitomizes unadorned clarity skillfully uniting form and function, and symbolizing technically inspired products beyond the automotive world, simultaneously keeping the same standards of aesthetics and technological leadership.

Porsche Design Timepieces enjoys special significance in this context. The perpetual urge for performance and precision, along with the unique transfer of technology from sports car construction to the watch industry, has always been and remains an obligation and motivation to be forward thinking, thus developing watches ahead of their time.

The famous compass watch, which combined two precise measuring instruments for orientation in time and space, is one example. The first chronograph made entirely of titanium, which debuted in 1980, is another.

Prof. F. A. Porsche revolutionized traditional watchmaking through his use of titanium, a corrosion-free, lightweight and hypoallergenic metal Porsche had already used in the construction of engines for racing cars. The bold “Ocean” diver’s watch was also made of titanium, as were Porsche Design’s “travel watch” with world-time indication and alarm in 1995, its WorldTimer in 2007 and its Globetimer in 2015.

Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC

This watch’s designers and engineers took a long, intensive look at exactly what globetrotters need in their daily lives, and united all the necessary features, creating an uncompromising, timeless synthesis.

Practicality is the top priority for long-distance travelers. Porsche Design’s 1919 Globetimer UTC makes it very easy for frequent travelers not to lose a moment of precious time. The local time can be conveniently set with the aid of the ergonomically shaped, optimally positioned pusher. Each press of this button causes the short, local-time hour hand to advance clockwise one position.

Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC

When flying east, each press of the “+” button advances the second time zone by an interval of one hour. When flying west, pressing the “–” button causes the UTC hands to move in the opposite direction. All the while, the UTC hands automatically move, remaining in synchrony.

To assure this occurs at midnight and not at noon, the time needs to be set correctly just once. A circular window on the left-hand side of the dial facilitates this task: a white dot appears here during the daytime hours, but the aperture remains black at night. Porsche Design has also taken into account the reference time, for which a second and clearly distinguishable hour hand with a distinctive luminous tip is responsible.

Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC

The pushers, each with a precisely defined pressure point, dispatch the switching operations with speed and precision, designed and built with the chronographic competence amassed by Porsche since 1972.

The well-conceived push-button control ensures intuitive operation, even while seated behind the wheel of a car. There is no need to unscrew the crown or sense its first detent position for independent adjustment of the local-time hour hand, thus eliminating a potential source of human error.

This is another example of the great importance Porsche Design places on safe and secure operation. This also applies to the option of operating the watch underwater: the waterproof case reliably withstands pressure up to ten bar.

Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC

Perfect legibility is another important feature. To intuitively display the time from any viewing angle, the dial’s radius has been made as large as possible, while the titanium case was designed to be uncommonly slim. Well-balanced styling imbues this watch with a unique lightness, further enhanced by the handsomely shaped wristband.

Color contrasts, distinctive hands, indices and numerals combine with the generous use of nonradioactive Super-LumiNova luminous material to minimize the chance of misreading, even in conditions characterized by poor visibility. In addition, a seven fold anti-reflective coating and an extra hard-coated treatment protect the sapphire crystal.

Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC watch case back

Inside the tripartite 42-mm case beats Porsche Design’s new Caliber Werk 04.110, based on the Sellita Caliber SW 200. The movement builds up a 38-hour power reserve with its balance paced at four hertz. The front of the caliber is equipped with a time-zone mechanism specially developed for Porsche Design. Such a time-zone mechanism, utilizing an ingenious push-button mechanism, was so far not available on the market.

In 2014, the company accordingly decided to develop the necessary movement itself. The concept was followed by drafting precise technical specifications for an exclusive module, duly engineered by Porsche Design and manufactured by Dubois-Dépraz. Before starting serial production, the mechanisms underwent several long-term tests in compliance with the strict criteria of Chronofiable SA.

The impact test’s candidates receive a blow equivalent to nearly 5,000 times their own weight, while each pushpiece must withstand at least 10,000 switching cycles – far more than the watch will ever endure, even under extreme use.

Before it is concealed in its case, each movement must also prove its timekeeping accuracy for fifteen consecutive days at the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC). The caliber must not lose more than four, nor gain more than six seconds per day, throughout the fifteen-day ordeal. During this time, the movement undergoes testing in five different positions and at three different temperatures.

The 1919 Globetimer UTC is part of the exclusive 1919 watch collection and is available as of September 2019, in four model variants, starting at a price of 5,950 Euros (RRP).

Porsche Design 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Black & Leather

Porsche Design expands its series of 1919 Collection timepieces with the introduction of the 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Black & Leather. Paying meticulous attention to detail, intelligent design meets maximum functionality, putting the Porsche philosophy directly on the wrist.

Tested and certified by the official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), the innovative 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Black & Leather – in addition to its technical features – stands out and competes through use of its sophisticated silhouette and subtle design cues.

Porsche Design 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Black & Leather

Like the legendary sports car, the timepiece provokes with its minimalist design, uncompromising functionality, and outstanding performance. The Porsche 911 has been the benchmark for sports cars since 1963 – synonymous with racing, victory, emotion, and innovation. It was also the inspiration for the company founded by Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche.

Porsche Design 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Black & Leather

In 1972, Porsche Design introduced the Chronograph I, a classic that shaped the entire world of watches: the first matte black chronograph, mirroring the 911’s speedometer and tachometer.

The new 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Black & Leather is a continuation of this uncompromising design with a clear focus on functionality: an all-black understated interpretation of the classic designed by F. A. Porsche. The sleek design of the generously proportioned dial focuses on the essentials, while the dark contrast guarantees excellent legibility.

The legendary sports car and the exclusive timepiece also share the same genesis in featherweight construction: this is optimized engineering for the wrist. Every 1919 Collection model – including the 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Black & Leather – is made entirely of titanium. The chronograph’s strap is made of high-quality cowhide leather, just like the seats of a Porsche, utilizing the same attention to detail as in the sports cars.

Porsche Design 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Black & Leather

The innovative watch, powered by the Porsche Design Werk 01.200 caliber, – equipped with a state-of-the-art flyback complication – can quickly measure successive intervals, such as lap times on the racetrack.

The 4-hertz automatic movement is the result of cutting-edge production methods combining in-house engineering and watchmaking expertise with vehicle manufacturing proficiency.

The movement’s exposed automatic bridge provides an unobstructed view of the flyback mechanism and the automatic gears, thereby systematically implementing Porsche’s approach to lightweight engineering.

The energy-optimized Porsche Design rotor, visible through the sapphire crystal back, is PVD-coated and carries a tungsten weight. Thanks to its heft, the material helps provide the energy necessary for maximum winding power.

The 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Black & Leather will be available as of September 2019 for 5,950 Euros (RRP).

Porsche Design Chronotimer GP Ice Race Special Edition

Porsche Design has launched a special edition timepiece from the iconic Chronotimer collection, as the official timing partner for the 2019 GP Ice Race event that took place from 19 to 20 January in Zell am See, Austria.

The Chronotimer GP Ice Race Special Edition was designed exclusively for the historic ice race, being revived after nearly 45 years. The legendary multi-class event offers amateur and professional riders, teams, and manufacturers the opportunity to compete under the toughest conditions for two days on the frozen race track. The event also includes the traditional skijoring and performances by famous race drivers.

Porsche Design Chronotimer GP Ice Race Special Edition

As the official timing partner, Porsche Design dedicates a functional, beautifully designed chronograph to the GP Ice Race, highlighting sporty characteristics through sophisticated details, such as ice-blue and polar-white details on the dial, along with a high-quality, perforated leather strap made from original Porsche interior leather.

Since the foundation of Porsche Design in 1972, the company has been rooted in Zell am See. The Chronograph I, the first watch designed by Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche and his team in 1972, was a world first.

Inspired by a decade-long experience in motorsport, it was the first all-black wristwatch ever made. To guarantee intuitive legibility from every angle at any time, the dashboard instruments of Porsche sports cars are matte black, having little to no reflection. The same principle was successfully transferred to this timepiece.

The next milestone followed in 1980 when the exclusive lifestyle brand incorporated Porsche’s lightweight construction principle to the world of watches with a timepiece made entirely of titanium. In addition to being hypoallergenic, it offered unparalleled lightness and durability.

Porsche Design Chronotimer GP Ice Race Special Edition

The Chronotimer Collection’s style refers to the Chronograph I and highlights the brand’s roots in motorsport. As the latest addition, the Chronotimer GP Ice Race Special Edition embodies the spirit of Porsche and pays tribute to the first Porsche Design Chronograph from 1972.

Like all Porsche Design timepieces, the 42-mm case is made of lightweight, resilient titanium. The characteristic black titanium carbide coating accentuates the expressive sporty design. The matte black dial, focused on perfect legibility, has a deeply dynamic look.

The GP Ice Race logo pays tribute to the rebirth of the legendary race, and the ice-blue and polar-white accents refer to the difficult conditions on the icy race track.

Porsche Design Chronotimer GP Ice Race Special Edition

Behind the case back’s blackened sapphire crystal, classic Swiss watchmaking puts the pedal to the metal: the automatic calibre ETA Valjoux 7750, which powered the Chronograph I. This version is equipped with the personalized Porsche Design Icon rotor.

The inscription “GP ICE RACE” on the case back also highlights the exclusivity of the timepiece. The watch’s harmonious color composition also includes the strap. Made of original, high-quality Porsche interior leather and distinguished by white contrast stitching, it perfectly complements the balanced design.

The Special Edition effortlessly supplements the exclusive Chronotimer Collection, which currently consists of 13 different model versions, and sets standards in the field of functional, luxury sports watches.

Porsche Design 911 Chronograph Timeless Machine Limited Edition

This new Porsche Design Chronograph watch pays tribute to the iconic Porsche 911 sports car. Presently in its eighth generation, this renowned sports car still thrills car enthusiasts nearly half a century later.

Since 1963, the 911 – synonymous with victory, emotion, and innovation – has been the global benchmark for sports cars and an inspiration for Porsche Design, the company founded by Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche.

With the Chronograph I, the first-ever all black timepiece Porsche Design introduced a style-defining classic that revolutionized the industry with its 1972 debut. The monochrome design was inspired by race cars, which eliminated reflections to ensure maximum legibility at all times, thanks to their matte black surroundings.

The minimalist style and understated look of the Porsche 911 perfectly reflected the design philosophy of F. A. Porsche. Now, with a special edition limited to 911 pieces, Porsche Design pays tribute to this motorsports icon.

Porsche Design 911 Chronograph Timeless Machine Limited Edition

At first glance, with an expressive design language distinguished by bold lines and reduced to the essence of necessity, the new watch instantly establishes its visual connection with the new Porsche 911.

The unmistakable design of this automotive idol, perfectly evolving and adapting to every generation, is also expressed through the refined design and shape of the Porsche Design 911 Chronograph Timeless Machine Limited Edition. Paying special attention to detail, the timepiece effortlessly revisits the spirit of the style-defining sports car.

To achieve the expansive, intuitively legible dial, an extremely narrow and low-profile bezel was applied. Adorned with the silhouette of the Porsche 911, it features a function sub dial displaying the words “Timeless Machine,” as well as bright red stop function and central seconds hands.

Similar to the dashboard of the car, it employs white hands and indices contrasted against a black background, in addition to chronograph counters designed to resemble a speedometer.

The lightweight principle borrowed from Porsche’s engine construction is implemented by using a hypoallergenic titanium case, which is just as durable as it is light – standard for all Porsche Design watches.

The distinctive cut-out lugs and smooth transition to the strap underscore the overall minimalist approach and visual lightness characteristic of all Porsche Design 1919 Collection wristwatches. The strap is created with the same leather and yarn used in the sports car interiors, immediately creating a tangible link to the rich Porsche heritage.

Porsche Design 911 Chronograph Timeless Machine Limited Edition

The ETA Valjoux 7750 movement, which visible through the sapphire case back, is customized with the recognizable Porsche Design Icon Rotor.

The Porsche Design 911 Chronograph Timeless Machine Limited Edition is the newest addition to the exclusive 1919 watch collection, currently comprised of 13 models.

Delivered in a special edition box with limitation badge, the watch is available as of April 2019 for 4,911 EUR (RRP) in Porsche Design Stores, Porsche Centres, specialty dealers, and online.

Porsche Design Chronotimer Flyback Special Edition

This new edition effortlessly reflects the essence of the style-forming Porsche Heritage. The 42-mm diameter timepiece, water-resistant to five bars, features an innovative titanium case with black titanium carbide-coating.

A further tribute to motorsport and lightweight construction, the watch utilizes a matte-black carbon dial reminiscent of Porsche instrument gauges.

Porsche Design Chronotimer Flyback Special Edition

Also new is the innovative strap system, which allows for quick replacement of the leather strap, and a new titanium butterfly-deployment-clasp with safety push buttons.

Porsche Design Chronotimer Flyback Special Edition

The Chronotimer Flyback Special Edition is powered by the Porsche Design calibre Werk 01.200, introduced in the 2017 Chronotimer 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series.

Porsche Design Monobloc Actuator Collection New Models – Monobloc Actuator Chronotimer Flyback Limited Edition and Monobloc Actuator 24H–Chronotimer All Black

As the official timing partner of the Porsche Motorsport GT Team, lifestyle brand Porsche Design presents two new versions of the innovative Monobloc Actuator watch collection.

With the introduction of the Monobloc Actuator Collection in 2017, Porsche Design introduced a highly innovative and entirely new watch concept.

To develop this new technology, the watchmakers at Porsche Design Timepieces AG in Solothurn (Switzerland) collaborated with the designers at Studio F. A. Porsche in Zell am See (Austria) and the engineers at Porsche Development Centre in Weissach (Germany).

Monobloc Actuator Chronotimer Flyback Limited Edition

Limited to 251 watches, this new model draws a direct correlation to the 251 cm wheelbase of the Porsche 911 RSR. This chronograph sports a matte-black carbon dial, inspired by components of the GT Team’s racing car, is reminiscent of its color composition: black, red, grey and white. In addition, the function display at “9 o’clock” reflects the characteristic red and white curb design.

Porsche Design Monobloc Actuator Chronotimer Flyback Limited Edition

The line offers a revolutionary new approach to the operation of a chronograph. The engine of the Porsche 911 RSR racecar, a prime example of performance on the racetrack, inspired this innovative mechanism.

Instead of using two standard push-pieces on the side of the case to trigger the stopwatch functions, like a conventional chronograph, the Monobloc Actuator’s chronograph functions are set into motion by a single pressure-operated rocker switch, which is integrated into the case.

Similar to the mechanisms used in the high-performance engine of the Porsche 911 RSR, adapted processes provide absolute precision, dependability, and hermetic sealing throughout operation. In fact, the stopwatch function of this chronograph, which is pressure-resistant up to 10 bar, is operational underwater.

Porsche Design Monobloc Actuator Chronotimer Flyback Limited Edition

Werk 01.200, introduced by Porsche Design in 2017, serves as a “high-tech engine” in the 45.5-millimeter titanium case. The chronograph calibre, whose excellent precision rate is certified by a COSC certificate, features a flyback mechanism.

In racing, this complex additional function is crucial, since it allows the measurement of successive intervals, for example, with lap times or pit stops. Ticking at 4 Hz, the automatic movement is the result of the brand’s engineering and horological competence and the transfer of intelligent technologies from racecar development.

Porsche Design Monobloc Actuator Chronotimer Flyback Limited Edition

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT2 RS

As part of the “Porsche Design for Porsche Projects” collaborations, Porsche Design now offers a custom-made watch along with a sports car for the second time in its history. For this exclusive offer, Porsche Design has developed a high-end chronograph, driven by the brand’s first in-house movement, matching the uniqueness of a corresponding sports car.

The Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT2 RS, exclusively available for owners of the new 911 GT2 RS, who appreciate performance and exclusivity, thus coming closer to their personal dream of the perfect sports car.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT2 RS

The car and watch can be ordered exclusively at Porsche Centres around the world. Each will be manufactured according to specifications of the client’s individual order -linked by the sports car’s individual VIN number – and delivered together. As a result of this program, Porsche Design extends the unique identity of the vehicle to its driver’s wrist.

The flyback chronograph features Porsche Design’s new in-house movement, Calibre Werk 01.200, which is C.O.S.C. certified. This function allows the chronograph’s second hand to be stopped, returned to zero, and restarted instantly with just one push of a button for the measurement of intermediate and lap times.

The development of Calibre Werk 01.200, with its complex fly-back mechanism, took three years. Like all products from the exclusive lifestyle brand, the automatic movement was designed through placing the highest demands on performance, and ease of use.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT2 RS

As a result of the heat-treated coil spring, the movement delivers additional constant force transmission, among other features, to optimize the rate accuracy during increased load conditions over a longer period of time. Such increased load occurs, for instance, when time is stopped on the race track.

Just like the wheel transfers force from the engine to the road, the movement’s rotor is crucial for generating and transferring the mechanical energy in an automatic movement. Consequently, and with love for detail, the rotor is designed to resemble the wheel rim of the 911 GT2 RS.

The skeletonized rotor, however, presented a particular engineering challenge, due to its reduced surface area and weight. Due to these facts, Porsche Design utilizes tungsten in the rotor production, which is an innovative, yet difficult-to-process material. A Porsche automobile’s typical central locking system with RS logo attaches the rotor to the movement, like its larger counterpart.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT2 RS

Also, Porsche’s Development Center for Motorsport was the catalyst in the design of the barrel bridge. In order to implement Porsche’s lightweight design, the bridges are load/stress optimised. The architecture of the movement is shaped to reveal the fascinating mechanism of the technically-complex flyback function. The Calibre Werk 01.200 has a C.O.S.C. certificate for high-accuracy in all positions.

Thanks to its sporty design, the 42 mm titanium case is an instant eye-catcher. Like the sports car, painted in GT Metallic Silver with black accents, the black titanium-carbide-coating on the chronograph’s bezel and case back emulate the two-tone color scheme of the car. Looking at the dial, should be a constant reminder of the dream of a perfect sports car is, not only worthwhile, but a potential reality at any moment.

Like the stabilizers, the connecting rods, the shifter paddles, and the steering wheel cover, the dial is made of carbon fiber. It is reminiscent of the carbon fiber strips used in the 911 GT2 RS and refined with the original car lacquer.

The time display reflects the instrument cluster and speedometer in the cockpit. A mechanical function display with “911 GT2 RS” logo indicates the smooth running of the movement and replaces the small seconds at the 9 o’clock position. The tachymeter scale, sitting on top of the rehaut, allows the calculation of average speeds, a feature created for the race track.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT2 RS

The Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT2 RS delivers with two leather straps: one black leather/Alcantara and one red leather/Alcantara. Thanks to the interchangea-ble wristband system, both can be easily exchanged.

Through the use of Alcantara leather, Porsche Design again draws the parallel to the sports car. The titanium fold-ing clasp, extends the lightweight-principle to a reliable fastening system. The sports car and chronograph are inseparably linked to the unique VIN, which is laser engraved into the titanium case back of the timepiece.

From June 30, 2017, the Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT2 RS is exclusively available at Porsche Centres worldwide to future owners of the 911 GT2 RS sports car, suggested retail price in Germany incl. VAT starting at 9,450.00 Euro.

Both the sports car and the chronograph will be manufactured as limited editions of 500 each, according to the individual order, and delivered simultaneously.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series

Inspired by the sporty performance of Porsche’s new masterpiece, Porsche Design has developed its first mechanical in-house movement for the Chronograph 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series. The development of the calibre Werk 01.200 took three years.

It features a complex flyback mechanism, allowing the elapsed seconds hand to be stopped, returned to zero, and restarted instantly with a single push of a but-ton, such as when clocking lap times during a race.

Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Turbo S Exclusive SeriesThe 4Hz-automatic movement results from state-of-the-art production methods. It combines the brand’s distinct concentrated competence in engineering and watchmaking with the expertise in vehicle construction.

The cut out of the movement’s barrel bridge not only exhibits the flyback function and the gear trains but, also, implements Porsche’s lightweight design in a consequent fashion. As is representative of Porsche Design, the movement is black.

Its energy-optimized rotor, visible through the sapphire case back, features a design inspired by an alloy wheel and is partially crafted from tungsten. This innovative material is extremely difficult to process but provides the necessary weight to guarantee a highly powerful wind, despite the delicate design.

The rotor, attached by a Porsche central locking with Porsche coat of arms, is similar to the wheel rims with accents of gold or done completely in black. In addition to being Porsche Design’s first in-house movement, Werk 01.200 also bears a certificate of the Swiss C.O.S.C. institution, verifying the accuracy of its performance.

Porsche Design MONOBLOC ACTUATOR Collection

With the new MONOBLOC ACTUATOR Collection, Porsche Design sets new standards in the art and science of time measurement.

The watchmakers at Porsche Design Timepieces AG in Solothurn, Switzerland collaborated with the designers at Studio F. A. Porsche in Zell am See, Austria and the engineers at Porsche Development Centre in Weissach, Germany to develop this line. The result is a revolutionary new approach to the operation of a chronograph.

The role model for this innovative mechanism is the racing engine of the new Porsche 911 RSR: a paradigmatic ex-ample of precision and performance on the highest level.

Porsche Design MONOBLOC ACTUATOR watch

The timepieces comprising the MONOBLOC ACTUATOR line achieve the unprecedented feat of literally engineering the chronograph’s buttons seamlessly into the case of the watch. A multiply borne rocker switch alternately sets into motion and halts the chronograph mechanism of automatic Calibre ETA Valjoux 7754.

Like the valves in the racing engine of the 911 RSR, this mechanism provides absolute precision, dependability, and continual, reliable protection against moisture penetration throughout operation. This means the stopwatch function of this chronograph, which is pressure-resistant to ten bar, is operational underwater.

Porsche Design MONOBLOC ACTUATOR Collection

The MONOBLOC ACTUATOR GMT-Chronotimer model versions offer the ideal companions at 24-hour races, or simply jetting across multiple time zones. Each version comes in a 45.5 millimetre titanium case, the staple material for the brand since its innovation in 1980.

The watches, available with a matte black or a deep blue sunburst-dial, come on a rubber strap, or an all-titanium bracelet, which utilizes a folding clasp with integrated fine-adjustment-mechanism to ensure a perfect fit.

Porsche Design MONOBLOC ACTUATOR

The MONOBLOC ACTUATOR 24H-Chronotimer features an innovative black titanium-carbide coating over its titanium case, a matte black dial, and a checkered-flag-design function indicator at “9 o’clock” — especially useful due to its optimal readability. This model is exclusively available on a rubber strap with deployment buckle.

The new MONOBLOC ACTUATOR Collection will be available in Porsche Design stores and select wholesalers starting in May 2017. Prices range from approximately $6,350 to $6,850.

Porsche Design 1919 Collection

Porsche Design, the renowned German brand known for its innovative product design, presents an exclusive timepiece collection in Bauhaus style. The “1919 Collection” celebrates the iconic tradition in German architecture and design.

Porsche Design 1919 Collection

After the successful launch of racing inspired “Chronotimer Collection”, the new “1919 Collection” is honoring another important milestone in the brand’s history – the Bauhaus movement in architecture and design, which had a profound influence on the company’s founder, Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche.

Porsche Design 1919 Collection

While the “Chronotimer Collection” represents dynamics and sportiness, the new “1919 Collection” perfectly embodies serenity, well-balanced aesthetics, and purist minimalism, which are key elements of the international success and longevity of the Bauhaus style.

The collection will be available at international Porsche Design flagship stores and exclusive fine watch retailers this fall.

Porsche Design 1919 Collection

The “1919 Datetimer Series 1” uniquely applies the functional standard of modern architecture to the design of high-quality timepieces.

The characteristic gaps at the band attachment and the form-locking transition into the strap add particular lightness to the puristic aesthetic. The reduced structure of the dial draws the attention to the essential information, the display of time and date.

Porsche Design 1919 Collection

The “1919 Datetimer Series 1” comes in four individual models of timeless elegance and handcrafted perfection that have been crafted to last.

Porsche Design 1919 Collection

The “1919 Globetimer Series 1” expands the puristic design of the “1919 Collection” with an integrated display for a second time zone. A 24-hour ring was added to the dial, featuring an additional hand indicating the time in a second time zone.

A feature that is especially appealing to international travelers, spending time in multiple time zones. The “1919 Globetimer Series 1” displays the time simultaneously at the destination as well as at home and is available in four models. The case back shows the 24 global time zones.

Like the “Chronotimer Collection”, the timepieces of this new collection were developed by Porsche Design Timepieces AG headquartered in Solothurn [Switzerland], in close collaboration with the Porsche Design Studio in Zell am See [Austria] establishing the path of the future positioning of the Porsche Design Group in this segment.

The first models of the “1919 Collection” will be available worldwide at Porsche Design Stores and select fine watch retailers starting this fall. Depending on the model, pricing ranges from $3,400 to $4,550.

Porsche Design Chronotimer Series 1

With the Chronotimer Series 1, Porsche Design presents a timepiece influenced by legendary watch models. At the same time, the new Chronotimer models are the first complete series of watches developed completely independently by the luxury brand.

The principles of the Series 1 correspond with those laid out by Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche for the very first watch he designed in 1972: optimal readability, technical perfection, the highest quality materials and an absolute focus on functionality.

The new Porsche Design Chronotimer Series 1 will be launched in June 2015.

With the black Chronograph I in the early 1970s, Porsche Design anticipated a trend which is now an integral part of the watch industry, and which was revolutionary at the time.

For Porsche Design, however, the matt black design had a purely functional background: the watch was reminiscent of the non-reflective instruments found in racing cars, where everything but the numbers and the hands are matt black.

This prevented unwanted reflections and allowed the driver to easily tell the time. The Chronotimer Series 1 continues this tradition. The result is a puristic and timeless precision instrument without decorative details and flourishes.

Porsche Design Chronotimer Series 1

Besides puristic, timeless design, Porsche Design relies on innovative materials. In 1980, Porsche Design once again revolutionised the world of watches with the Titanium Chronograph – the world’s first titanium timepiece.

This means the watch is extremely resistant, and offers a high degree of wearer comfort due to the light weight of the material, which weighs much less than stainless steel. Extremely light and extremely durable: the messages are as relevant today as they were then and are a tradition from which all models of the Chronotimer Series 1 benefit.

Functionality and aesthetics were equal partners in the mind of Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, with neither taking priority over the other, and this conviction held by the designer set a trend that applies to this day. Nothing is there just for decoration: the impressively defined shapes are derived from the functionality and made from carefully selected, authentic materials that are assembled with highly skilled workmanship.

The Porsche Design Chronotimer Series 1 was developed entirely by Porsche Design Timepieces AG, based in the Solothurn (Switzerland), and was also manufactured in Switzerland. It is based on both the legendary Chronograph I timepiece from 1972 and the Titanium Chronograph from 1980.

The characteristics of the first completely independently designed series of watches are timeless and modern: the band and the case of the Chronotimer are made from glass-bead blasted titanium, which is then painted matt black using a special process. The diameter of the case is 42 millimetres.

Inside the watch ticks a mechanical ETA Valjoux 7750 chronograph mechanism with a power reserve of 48 hours and a date display beside the number “3”. The blackened sapphire crystal case back that shows the inner workings of the exclusive, energy-optimised Porsche Design rotor is a real eye-catcher.

The Chronotimer Series 1 is waterproof up to five bar.

Porsche Design – Timepiece No. 1 and Chronograph Titanium Limited Edition

Following more than 40 years of successful collaboration with renowned watchmakers, the luxury brand Porsche Design presents the Timepiece No. 1 and Chronograph Titanium Limited Edition models. These two automatic chronographs mark the beginning of the era Timepieces made by Porsche Design.

The watches, which are the first to be developed completely in-house, are designed on the basis of the same principles used by Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche for the very first Porsche Design watch – the legendary Chronograph I: optimal readability, technical perfection, the highest quality materials and an absolute focus on functionality. Each of the new watch models is limited to 500 units.

Porsche Design - Timepiece No. 1 and Chronograph Titanium Limited Edition

With its first watch in 1972, Porsche Design introduced a style-defining classic: It was not a watch in the traditional sense, made from gold or silver. Rather, it was a revolutionary time measurement instrument designed entirely in matt black. The first watches to be developed completely in-house build on this tradition and continue the legacy of the Chronograph I with their non-compromising design.

They are innovative precision tools, optimised in terms of case size and their finely crafted surfaces, as well as in terms of ease of use and wearer comfort. Porsche Design has taken advantage of the technical possibilities offered by the new millennium in implementing these new features, delighting both engineers and lovers of design alike.

Nothing is there just for decoration: The impressively defined shapes are derived from the functionality and made from carefully selected, authentic materials that are assembled with highly skilled workmanship. The aesthetics of the Timepiece No. 1 and Chronograph Titanium’s dials further reflect this purism.

The hands and bar indices are filled with white luminescent material so that the large dial is as clear as possible at all times. The white lettering also contrasts with the black instrument dial. The date is displayed level with the “3“.
