With the Chronotimer Series 1, Porsche Design presents a timepiece influenced by legendary watch models. At the same time, the new Chronotimer models are the first complete series of watches developed completely independently by the luxury brand. The Porsche Design Chronotimer Series 1 was developed entirely by Porsche Design Timepieces AG, based in the Solothurn (Switzerland), and was also manufactured in Switzerland. It is based on both the legendary Chronograph I timepiece from 1972 and the Titanium Chronograph from 1980.
The characteristics of the first completely independently designed series of watches are timeless and modern: the band and the case of the Chronotimer are made from glass-bead blasted titanium, which is then painted matt black using a special process. The diameter of the case is 42 millimetres. Inside the watch ticks a mechanical ETA Valjoux 7750 chronograph mechanism with a power reserve of 48 hours and a date display beside the number “3”. The blackened sapphire crystal case back that shows the inner workings of the exclusive, energy-optimised Porsche Design rotor is a real eye-catcher. The Chronotimer Series 1 is waterproof up to five bar.
The Porsche Design Chronotimer Series 1 will be launched in June 2015.
