Porsche Design: Limited Edition Chronograph Titanium
After separating from Eterna, Porche design cheap quickly expressed its intentions. In the years of cooperation between the two companies, Porche Design has been producing various sober technical timepieces. Porsche Design established its own Swiss timepiece department and appointed Patrick Kury, the former technical director of Eterna, as its president. A few months ago, Porsche Design introduced two new timepieces.
The First model was developed by the new Porsche Design Timepieces AG (headquartered in Solothurn, Switzerland) and has a dual purpose. First of all, they mark the beginning of a new Porsche-centric design and production process for watches. Secondly, these new works recall the breakthrough features of the two most successful early models produced by the brand in the 1970s and 1980s, namely Timepiece 1 and Titanium Chronograph, which were made in matte black and titanium, respectively. In fact, the 1980 titanium timepiece is often regarded as the world’s first all-titanium case bracelet.
Anyone who knows or owns any of these early styles will recognize these latest watches-of course, this is the point. These first models of the 2015 series, such as the Porsche Design watches No.1 and the Porsche Design Timepiece Titanium Limited Edition as shown on the right, are all limited editions and can be immediately recognized as meaningless chronographs.
The latter model that I have worn for a week or so feels light on the wrist, which is not surprising given its titanium case and clasp. However, even with the ETA Valjoux automatic chronograph movement, which is not particularly thin, the best replica watches uk did not press my wrist as significantly as a watch made with this main movement. Maybe the padded calfskin strap worked magic on my senses.
The black dial here is marked with white markings and includes a five-minute indicator on the inner flange. When viewed with the black mark of the speedometer on the (fixed) bezel, the absolute technology of the watch and the car’s forehead can be clearly displayed. The same red chronograph second hand as those earlier models appears here (as well as the No. 1 timepiece), reminding people in a nostalgic and practical way that Porsche Design insists on an easy-to-read dial.
The matte surface here is the color of technology-a bit darker than my aluminum phone. As a result, it tells me where it performs its function, rather than broadcasting my wealth or status. The black matte version may send a different message-may be interested in stealth fashion.
No wrong choice
Either way, these watches are the opposite of bling. I suspect that only those who wear or own other copy Porsche Design products can recognize the company’s logo at any distance, especially since it appears small on the dial, right above the Porsche Design name.
Finally, the aforementioned padded calfskin strap is more functional than luxury straps, and according to my personal preference, it is slightly different from the case of the case. I usually prefer a one-piece strap that is tightly fixed to the case, because Porsche Design seems to have designed a rubber strap that looks like one for the black timepiece No. 1. Since I haven’t worn this model, I can’t directly tell the actual fit, but it looks tighter than a belt in the photo. The titanium buckle is excellent. It has a simple size and can be fastened safely and effortlessly.
Porsche Design assures us that the genes of Ferdinand Alexander Porsche have been embedded in these new models. Indeed, more than forty years ago, Porsche mentioned the following principles when designing these original models: best readability, technical perfection, highest quality materials and attention to function. By wearing the watch on your wrist, you can clearly see the contents of the new Porsche Design Timepiece. I firmly believe that these guidelines have been followed. replica Porsche Design 1919 watch
