Chronotimer Collection

TIME IS THE ONE TRUE LUXURY. SO ENJOY EVERY (HUNDREDTH OF A) SECOND.

The Chronotimer Collection is a throwback to the legendary Chronograph I. And a tribute to the brand’s deep motorsports history.

All chronographs in this series are timeless, sporty, no-frills timekeepers that offer unbeatable precision. Rich dial contrasts ensures excellent readability while high-performance materials such as titanium provide excellent comfort. Not to be missed: the Porsche Design icon on the crown and dial – the unmistakable seal of a clear design language, masterfully reduced to the essentials.

FLYBACK FUNCTION

The first proprietary Porsche Design movement Werk 01.200 is a chronograph caliber with flyback function, load path-optimized bridge and COSC certification. And the result of a three-year development process using state-of-the-art production methods. The new movement combines start, stop and reset functions in a single process. A masterpiece – full of refinements in precision, function and performance.

HIGH-TECH TITANIUM

Titanium and other innovative technologies ensure premium comfort. Titanium is around 40 percent lighter than stainless steel and has been used for decades in the construction of race cars for the motorsports industry. Strong, malleable, durable, resistant to a wide range of temperatures and corrosion – and even aggressive agents. This lightweight metal is also suitable for people with sensitive skin and allergy sufferers, since it is completely free of nickel or chrome.

Inspired

Inspired by the low-glare cockpits in 1960s race cars, Prof. F. A. Porsche created the Chronograph I which today is still regarded as a design classic. The maximal contrast afforded by the matte black dial ensures excellent readability, and is reinforced by the convex, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with seven layers of antireflective coating on both sides.

THE PHILOSOPHY

THERE ARE WATCHES. AND THEN THERE ARE PORSCHE DESIGN TIMEPIECES.

Porsche Design follows a clear design philosophy: optimize function. Reduce the form right down to the essentials. Overcome the familiar to continually discover new and exceptional solutions. Only then can we create unique design objects that move beyond the predictable, offer maximum performance and reflect the unmistakable Porsche DNA.

 

The vision that inspired founder Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche to create the legendary Porsche 911 is built on the same principles that have driven Porsche Design since 1972.

A SOURCE OF INSPIRATION SINCE 1972: MOTORSPORTS

TWO DISCIPLINES, ONE MATERIAL: TITANIUM

Titanium is around 40 percent lighter than stainless steel and has been used for decades in the construction of race cars for the motorsports industry. Strong, malleable, durable, resistant to a wide range of temperatures and corrosion – and even aggressive agents. This lightweight metal is also suitable for people with sensitive skin and allergy sufferers, since it is completely free of nickel or chrome. All Porsche Design watches are made of titanium – no exceptions. The use of titanium in the watchmaking industry is a major contribution of the Porsche Design brand and today’s world of luxury watches wouldn’t be the same without it.

DESIGNED IN AUSTRIA, SWISS MADE

Timepieces by Porsche Design strike the perfect balance between design and function combined with fine Swiss watchmaking. Designers at Studio F. A. Porsche (Austria) and watchmakers at Porsche Design Timepieces AG (Switzerland) have collaborated over the years to produce numerous revolutionary concepts. The engineers at Porsche Design Timepieces AG are tireless in their pursuit of new ways to develop timepieces that are regarded as industry benchmarks in functionality, precision and performance.
