Last month we told you all about the fastest Porsche 911 ever built, the magnificent 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series. This month, Baroque Access finds out all about the magnificent Porsche Design Chronograph, inspired by this exceptional car
It’s only a few weeks since Porsche announced its incredible Porsche 911 Turbo S, but the German automaker has more news for us. This month it unveiled a special edition timepiece inspired by its exceptional new Exclusive Series 911, which has broken all the records to be named the fastest 911 ever built.
The watch, named the Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series, is the German brand’s first watch that features an in-house movement. Like the new car itself, the timepiece was created by Porsche Design, Porsche’s dedicated division involved in customizing products.
Of course, just like the car, which is only being produced in a limited edition of 500, there will only be 500 watches produced. The watch and the timepieces will be available at the same time.
To honor the vehicle, the design of the timepiece features several Porsche Design signatures. It also houses Porsche Design’s very first mechanical in-house movement. The carbon dial of this limited edition watch is available in a choice of six colours – Agate Grey Metallic, Black, Carrara White Metallic, Graphic Blue Metallic, Golden Yellow Metallic and Guards Red. The seams of each watch match in the same colors.
The black hands on the dial feature white SuperLuminova coating so that they are very easy to read. Other innovative design features include a matt-black movement with chrome-plated bridges, as well as plates and polished screws, not to mention engraved Porsche Design icons.
The watch rotor is designed and finished to match the original wheel rim of this Exclusive Series Turbo 911 vehicle. With a price tag of $12,650, the watch is far more affordable than the car. However, to keep the rarity and exclusivity of these exceptional timepieces, only owners of this prestigious Porsche 911 Exclusive Series vehicle can purchase one of them from a selection of Porsche Centres around the world.
When it comes to true luxury, Porsche has the last word: you can’t have one without the other. And you also can’t do without the watch. It’s the perfect match.
