Porsche Design celebrates the announcement of the eighth generation of the iconic Porsche 911 with a limited edition timepiece, the 911 Chronograph Timeless Machine Limited Edition. Since 1963, the 911 has been the global benchmark for sports cars and an inspiration for Porsche Design. This special edition watch which is limited to 911 pieces, is a tribute to this motorsports icon.
The unmistakable design of the new Porsche 911 is reflected in the 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. The expansive, intuitively legible dial features an extremely narrow and low-profile bezel. Decorated 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. Just like 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 hypoallergenic titanium case is standard for all Porsche Design watches, and the new timepiece is not an exception. 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.
The watch is powered by an ETA Valjoux 7750 movement, the classic mechanical chronograph movement, which also was used in the first Porsche Design watch – the Chronograph I back in 1972. Today the calibre, now visible through the sapphire case back, is customized with the recognizable Porsche Design Icon Rotor.
The Porsche Design 911 Chronograph Timeless Machine Limited Edition comes in a special edition box with limitation badge and is available as of April 2019 for 4,911 EUR (around $5,590) in Porsche Design Stores, Porsche Centres, specialty dealers, and online at www.porsche-design.com.
