Maybe to ease the sting of a USD$275,000 price tag on the 2019 911 Speedster, Porsche is offering an exclusive chronograph created by Porsche Design for anyone who purchases the car. The watch matches nicely with the Speedster with a band that uses the same Porsche leather and red contrast stitching used on the car’s interior. The watch comes with both red and black straps. The chronograph comes with a black case made of titanium and reinforced with black titanium-carbide coating and a carbon fibre dial—again, a call out to the Speedster.
On the dial, you’ll find the watch’s own instrument panel, which includes an outer tachymeter and two sub-dials, a 30-minute and a 12-hour totaliser, as well as a date window. The movement for the watch is an in-house Werk 01.200 calibre, which bears a certificate of the Swiss C.O.S.C institution for its accuracy. The movement also features flyback function, which allows for timing of consecutive events with just the push of a button.
The rotor of the watch is modelled after the Speedster’s centre lock wheel, and matches both in design and colour.
In the announcement for the watch, Porsche Design stated, “The timepiece combines the classic design elements, materials, and performance features of the sports car, extending the unique feeling of Porsche to the wrist of its future owner.” It be offered for purchase in May for USD$12,911.
