Porsche Reveals First Watches Developed In-House
Nothing complements a fancy sports car like a matching luxury timepiece and soon Porsche fanciers will have a brand new way to impress the rest of us since a new line of watches from Porsche Design called the Chronotimer Series 1 will be hitting stores next month. What sets this series apart from previous lines bearing the Porsche name is that the new models are the first to be developed in-house by the legendary brand.
According to Porsche, the Chronotimer Series 1 watches are based on the principles of Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche and feature a high-quality titanium case that will be available in several finishes with a choice of materials for the strap. Buyers may choose among dials of black, carbon or deep blue and bezels of black, titanium or 18-carat rose gold.
On the inside of the 42mm case is a mechanical ETA Valjoux 7750 chronograph movement with a power reserve of 48 hours. Those inner workings are visible through the black-tinted sapphire crystal sapphire case back. The Chronotimer Series 1 line draws its inspiration from both the 1972 Chronograph 1 and the 1980 Titanium Chronograph.
“The principles of the Chronotimer Series 1 correspond with those laid out by Ferdinand Alexander Porsche for the very first timepiece he designed in 1972, the black Chronograph I: optimal readability, technical perfection, the highest quality materials and a puristic design with an absolute focus on functionality,” said a statement from Porsche.
“The new timepieces continue this tradition as puristic and timeless precision instruments.”
Porsche lovers can hit the road this summer with a new Chronotimer Series 1 in the perfect color combination to set off the paint job on their iconic automobile. What could be more of a dream come true for the aficionados of both luxury cars and luxury timepieces?
