New product from Porsche Design is P’6520 Compass Watch. It is inspired by the first Compass Watch, created in 1978 by the designer Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, and in this case it was merely adapted to 21st-century standards.
The case of the watch is made from titanium that is colored black. The watch hands are white and the markings for time are white as well. The second hand is red. When you flip the watch face up you have a compass underneath. That liquid compass in the bottom is removable, will work in both hemispheres, and has mirrors to make it viewable. Those mirrors click into place to let you see the compass from the side when the watch is on your wrist.
The P’6520 watch uses a Swiss automatic Sellita caliber movement SW300 with a power reserve of 42 hours and is water resistant to 50 meters. Together with the P’6530 Titanium Chronograph presented last year, it is the second re-issue of a traditional watch by Porsche Design. The series is limited to 911 pieces. Price is still unannounced, but it will probably cost as much as a one good car. [Porsche Design]
