Porsche Design watches

In today's blog we will talk about Porsche Design brand, a watch house that was born in 1972 in a family dedicated for generations to the production of the famous Porsche sports cars. What quickly made this brand stand out was the introduction of the first completely black chronograph watch, both in its case and in its bracelet. In 1980 Porsche Design introduced the first chronograph made of titanium. Today Porsche Design is one of the youngest brands in Swiss watchmaking, but it never ceases to amaze the world thanks to the unique functions of its watches.

Here we present the main collections of Porsche Design and the factors that have made them a true success in the world of watchmaking.

Porsche Design 1919 COSC

Porsche Design Monobloc Actutator Automatic Watch

The monobloc actuator is the latest innovation from Porsche Design, all its watches are made of titanium and its case, as the name indicates it, is a unique block where we will find both the bezel and the chronograph pushers integrated in its case. And it is precisely in these pushers where we find the most innovative detail of this collection. Drawing inspiration from the sporty Porsche 911 RSR and more specifically its mechanical valve technology, the Monobloc Actuator watches includes a single articulating “rocker arm”-style pusher to control the chronograph. Another unique feature of this collection is the small-second subdial, which in these models is represented with a small opening at 9 o'clock in which a rotating disc appears with whit-spoked stripes or with the motif of the checkered flag that simply indicates to the user if the watch is working.



Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer UTC Automatic Watch 

This collection is directly inspired by the iconic 911 car from Porsche Design, with a much more purist and elegant design without losing its sporty essence. The first model with Flyback function from Porsche Design was born within this line, thanks to the brand's first inhouse movement, the Werk 01.200, a caliber that also has COSC certificate. This function allows its user to measure successive time intervals, since the chronograph is reset and starts again without the need to first stop the chronograph, you just need to press once the button and it will restart. This is ideal for automotive activities where the lap times of a car have to be recorded as accurately as possible.

Within this collection Porsche presents its latest model, the 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Blue & Leather, which includes the traditional functions of the 1919 models but with an attractive blue color. This model includes a chronograph without tachymeter scale, the classic small-second subdial of Porsche Design, that we presented in the Monobloc section, the flyback function and the COSC certificate.

Porsche Design Chronotimer Flyback Series 1 Automatic Watch

This collection is a tribute to the first titanium chronograph created by Porsche Design, it also features a very sporty design in keeping with the brand's history. Chronotimer watches are characterized by having an extremely minimalist dial, seeking ease of reading. One of the surprising details of some of these models is the smoked sapphire back glass, which reveals the movement of the watch. All Chronotimer watches include the chronograph function and the tachymeter function on their bezel. For those who are not familiar with this function, the tachymeter is a numerical scale with which the average speed can be measured based on the distance traveled.
