Porsche Design, the lifestyle brand synonymous with clothing, eyewear, luggage and watches has unveiled a new timepiece to coordinate with the latest exotic car to leave the gates of Porsche’s Zuffenhausen factory. The 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series is a limited run of 500 cars to be offered by the famous Swabian car manufacturer.

Porsche Design will manufacture 500 chronographs to accompany the car suitably named the Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series. Both the car and the watch offer an impressive opportunity for personalisation.

The new timepiece contains the brand’s ‘first mechanical in-house movement’. The development of the movement, the calibre Werk 01.200, took in excess of three years to complete. The chronograph features a flyback function, proving ideal for timing consecutive lap times or honing them to perfection.

Congruent with Porsche’s reputation for lightweight performance cars, the movement’s barrel bridge is open-worked, bestowing a lightweight appearance. Moreover, by adopting this design strategy, the barrel bridge reveals the flyback function and gear train.

The oscillating mass is affixed with a central locking nut, adorned with the Porsche coat of arms, echoing the appearance of a Porsche wheel rim. Would-be buyers can choose from gold accents on the rotor or, alternatively, a completely black ensemble.

The carbon dial is offered in regular Porsche colours, such as Golden Yellow Metallic, Carrara White, Agate Grey Metallic, Black, Graphite Blue Metallic and the iconic Guards Red. The timepiece is presented with a titanium bracelet and two leather straps featuring titanium deployant buckles. Moreover, the strap is made from the same leather and thread used for the seats of the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series.

Porsche and Porsche Design have decided to distribute the Chronograph 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series solely through Porsche Centres worldwide ‘to future owners of the Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series’.

The suggested retail price of the Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series is $12,650 or €9,950
