Porsche designs watches for the future and timepiece second. 1
Porsche designed the early drawings of the first watch, which was the first watch ever officially manufactured by Porsche Design. According to our understanding. Porsche Design has been involved in watchmaking since 1972 and has collaborated with a number of different watch companies to produce watch designs. Over the years, these brands include brands such as Orfina, IWC and Eterna, but a new era of internal production will soon enter Porsche Design.
As early as 2014, Porsche Design ended its long-term partnership with Swiss Eterna watches and produced timepieces for the Stuttgart company in Germany. The exact reason for ending the relationship is not yet clear, but I speculate that this may be related to the acquisition of Eterna by Chinese company Haidian in China. After the purchase, Eterna CEO Patrick Kury also stepped down. The future prospects for the development of the two companies are not clear.nice replica Richard Mille RM055 Bubba Watson watches
A few months ago, I talked with some people at Porsche Design to better understand the future. I was told that Porsche Design will of course continue to manufacture watches but they are not looking for new production partners. Instead, they will focus on in-house production and, in the near future, an internally produced Porsche Design movement. I was told that I needed to wait and I would release the first “internal” Porsche design watch before the end of 2014 – that is, more content would be released in less than a year after breaking up with Eterna.
I usually do not like to let the watch industry discuss, but it does affect many people like the product, but also affects the brand I like very much. Porsche Design just announced some interesting news. The first is the establishment of the Swiss subsidiary Porsche Design Timepieces AG, which will, of course, produce watches in Switzerland. This will be the responsibility of the larger Porsche Design Group, whose chief executive is Juergen Gessler. The second message is that the CEO of Porsche Design TImepieces will become Patik Kury.replica Porsche Design watches price
So, starting with the production of Eterna’s Porsche Design watch, Mr. Kury now moves internal to Porsche Design to continue his work. Watch enthusiasts know that his engineering concepts are combined with the design talents of Porsche Design and help create many truly satisfying products.
In the fall of 2014, the first new Porsche Design watch will be released, known as Porsche Design Timepiece No.1. We don’t have a complete image yet, but Porsche Design has released the above sketch showing the typical appearance of Porsche’s DNA. At first glance, the design of the timepiece 1 may seem simple, but in fact it continues the modern simplicity and functional features of Porsche Design. According to Porsche Design, the team was influenced by the 1972 original chronograph design.
Although we don’t have much visual material, there is some information on the Porsche Design 1 timepiece. First of all, this model will not have internal production actions, but future models may. At present, Porsche Design will use the proven Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750 robot. The shell of No. 1 watch is 42 mm wide (water resistant to 50 meters) and black coated titanium. In addition, the sapphire crystal glass back cover window will be dyed black and there will be a custom Porsche Design rotor (maybe new).wholesale replica Rado Centrix Watches
As we mentioned, Porsche Design has always been the primary design entity, not just the watch brand. In fact, in addition to watches, the brand also produced some other iconic products, such as the 1978 sunglasses, which was the first sunglasses to offer interchangeable lenses for civilian fashion people (as early as the 1950s, Ray -Ban provided interchangeable lens pilots for the military, innovative ink pens, shoes, luggage and electronics. Recently, they released a new smart phone that works with BlackBerry (whether good or bad). Although these different products may seem random, they all have unique design languages – Teutonic, Practical and Very Porsche.
For a design company with no watch watch expertise, Porsche Design had to collaborate with other companies to make timepieces. Since their establishment in 1972, they have been working with Orfina, IWC and Eterna since 1998. There is no doubt that the most productive cooperation was in these years of the IWC from 1978 to 1997. These are dark years for the Swiss watch industry, but now Porsche Design and IWC have launched some amazing watches, many of which have broken new developments in the use of materials, and make full use of two brands of Germanic The importance of functional design.buy replica HUBLOT BIG BANG BRODERIE SKULL watches
The first outstanding work of Porsche Design’s collaboration with IWC was its Compass watch, which, as its name implies, puts a liquid-filled compass under the dial and movement. Worn like a standard watch, time is usually read, but the watch can flip over the hinge to reveal the compass below. The case of this watch is made entirely of aluminum, reducing metal interference on the compass and making it very lightweight. This watch perfectly fits into the design concept of Ferdinand Porsche. It is very easy to use, wears and reads, and maintains the same distinctive style as the Porsche design.
In 1980, the world’s first titanium watch was launched. Like black chronographs, it’s easy to lose sight of the importance of the Titan chronograph today, because we now see numerous titanium watches. But in the 1970s and 1980s, titanium was a peculiar material, very expensive on raw materials, and very difficult to use. Therefore its use is limited to the aerospace industry. But IWC innovates new tools and strict tolerances for working titanium case to meet the simple lines of Porsche design and the sleek chronograph with the method of integrating bracelets and the birth of an “invisible” propeller. This is one of the most representative works of Porsche Design Company, a milestone in the construction of watches, and the status of consolidating IWC as an expert builder.replica AUDEMARS PIGUET ROYAL OAK RD#2 PERPETUAL CALENDAR EXTRA-THIN watch
