Porsche Design P’6612 PGC

For those who didn’t receive the presents they really wanted at Christmas, the new gold Porsche Design chronometer might be the one to ask for next time. Built to the customary high standards of the company, the gold model features a case in 18 carat ‘red’ gold and a natural rubber strap with ‘tyre tread’ embossing.

You could not see a greater contrast with the usual stark black-finish watches from Porsche Design than the gold model, however it retains the "instrument panel" dials and easy-to-read legibility of other models in the family. High visibility is retained after dark with the Superluminova coating on hands and hour markers.

Inside the chronograph a titanium heavy metal rotor provides automatic winding, a design that copies the road wheels of current cars and one that can be viewed through the crystal back.

The Porsche Design P’6612 PGC with ‘Krokoband’ strap costs in the region of 8,900 EURO.
