To celebrate the new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS, Porsche Design has created a matching watch, which will be offered exclusively to buyers of the vehicle. Porsche Design Chronograph 718 Cayman GT4 RS features a lightweight concept with a performance focused character by using high-tech titanium materials. The winding rotor design is inspired by the wheels of the car.
The watch is powered by the Porsche Design WERK 01.200 caliber, which is fitted with the flyback mechanism. It allows 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, ensuring the highest precision and performance.
The tough yet very light titanium is used for some of the engine components of the new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS (like the connecting rods) that are constantly exposed to extreme stress. 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. Its matte black and anti-reflective dial draws inspiration from the sports car’s rev counter. 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 allow this watch to be used at the racetrack. A colored ring in Arctic Gray also decorates the dial’s rim.
The Chronograph 718 Cayman GT4 RS can be further individualized. Black and titanium case colors and two types of bezel are available, while the individual ring can be adapted to match the vehicle color. The timepiece comes on a special GT4 RS watch strap which is 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.
The Porsche Design Chronograph 718 Cayman GT4 RS is available for order through authorized Porsche dealerships at a starting price of $8,400.
