Porsche Design gets in the fast lane with new generation of timepieces
It has been more than four decades since Porsche Design revolutionized the premium watch industry for the first time by launching the world’s first matte all-black Chronograph I. Today, the renowned premium lifestyle brand presents a brand new collection – the “Chronotimer Collection”.
By launching the “Chronotimer Collection“, Porsche Design celebrates its natural passion for racing: Observing the specific needs of race car drivers, Porsche Design founder Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche relied on matte black surfaces and titanium at an early stage. These qualities have not lost any significance since then, and are essential features of the new collection. The Chronotimer Collection is available in Porsche Design stores around the world as well as in select watch retailers and online on www.porsche-design.com.
The “Chronotimer Collection” embodies sportiness, speed and performance. The design is inspired by non-reflective instruments as seen in race car cockpits, designed entirely matte black except for the white numerals and hands. The combination with a double-sided, 7-layer coated anti-reflective sapphire crystal minimizes reflections, ensuring optimal performance and perfect readability.
Eleven Individual Models
Each model of the “Chronotimer Collection” features a captivating titanium case with a selection of surface finishes and material choices for the strap, including fine leather, high-tech fabric, titanium and caoutchouc, adding a personal touch to the individual references. With regard to the bezel, there is also a focus on individuality and craftsmanship: The bezels of the “Chronotimer Collection”, available in matte black coated titanium, titanium or 18-carat rose gold, and the dials in matte black, black carbon, deep blue or white give each individual timepiece a striking appearance and highly individual touch.
A New Generation
For the first time, the Porsche Design “Chronotimer Collection” was developed by the Porsche Design Timepieces AG, based in Solothurn (Switzerland) in cooperation with the Studio F. A. Porsche in Zell am See (Austria), and manufactured in Switzerland. The timepiece features are timeless and modern: The diameter of the case is 42 millimeters. The watch is powered by a mechanical ETA Valjoux 7750 chronograph movement with a power reserve of 48 hours and a date display at “3” o’clock. The black-tinted sapphire crystal case back shows the inner workings of the exclusive, energy-optimized Porsche Design rotor. The “Chronotimer Collection” is water-resistant up to 5 bar.
