The collection is more than an acknowledgment of our roots. With the Chronotimer Collection, Porsche Design celebrates the natural passion for racing. Looking at the specific needs of racing drivers Porsche Design founder Prof. F. A. Porsche relied on matte black surfaces and titanium at an early stage.
These strengths have not lost any significance since then, and therefore are a feature in the new collection. Sportive. Dynamic. Highly functional.
BLACK – A REVOLUTION IN THE COCKPIT
Early 1970s. The challenge: The reflection of light on the dashboard at night makes it harder to read the instruments and disrupts the concentration of racers. The solution is as simple as it is ingenious: a matte black cockpit with white hands – maximum contrast for optimal readability. An idea that has left tracks beyond the field of motorsports.
Black. The only color that ideally accentuates contours, shape and design. It sets off the distinctive appearance. Strong, uncompromising, dynamic, timeless. Optimal readability thanks to maximum contrast. A black dial set off by white indices and white hands beneath scratch-resistant sapphire crystal – with double-sided, 7-layer anti-reflective treatment. A puristic precision instrument with no frills. Reduced to the essential.
TITANIUM – THE HIGH-TECH-MATERIAL
Lightness. Durability. Comfort. Three essential properties of the light metal titanium, which is primarily deployed in racing, aeronautics and medical technology. More robust than stainless steel, it is also much lighter, completely corrosion-resistant and hypoallergenic.
All Porsche Design timepieces are manufactured out of titanium. This exclusive material grants its chronographs special durability and guarantees the most comfortable fi t. Every model: brushed, polished, glass bead-blasted, or titanium carbide coated.
CONTEMPORARY. COOL. ICONIC.
