A timepiece to match an extraordinary car
With the new Porsche Design PTC 911 Limited Edition, Porsche Design has made a striking collection in the unique colours of the new Porsche 911 Carrera: Basalt Black, Guards Red and Speed Yellow. The sport chronograph is available in a limited edition of 911 timepieces in each of these colours.
Like the cockpit instruments of the 911 Carrera, the dial shows the time with perfect clarity. The colour of the secondshand contrasts sharply with that of the dial. Three exciting colour combinations have been chosen for the different models: Basalt Black is enhanced by a red seconds-hand which is rendered in white for the Guards Red dial and in black against the Speed Yellow background.
At 12 o’clock, the silhouette of the 911 Carrera below the Porsche Design logo signifies the special edition. A detail which is noticed immediately and underlines the unique character of this watch. The engraved numbering can be seen on the back of the case and not only indicates the limited run, but also contains the initial letter of the particular Porsche colour (example: 001 B 911; 001 R 911; 001 Y 911).
The case is made of grade 5 titanium, so the utmost strength of manufacture is allied to a particularly light specific weight. Working with titanium is an unusually exacting task, which makes the perfect polish of the case all the more impressive. The optical quality of the metal also has a technical character and makes a perfect match for the overall effect of the chronograph and the aesthetic vision of Porsche Design. The outcome is a strong chronograph: as bright as stainless steel but absolutely corrosion-resistant and also anti-allergenic because of the use of titanium.
The watch has either a rubber strap fitted with a double folding clasp in titanium, or a tough titanium bracelet. Porsche Design offers its special models in a unique three-piece set with a luxurious matching presentation box. Each individual model is also available in a specially made watch box, coming with a unique certificate with a titanium finish. Both the single box and the set box are made of fine quality leather. The characteristic rotor is illustrated on the front and the tyre tread on the interior. The
box cover comes with the new Porsche 911 silhouette combined with the inscription of the Limited Edition.
