The future of Porsche designed watches and the 1st watch
The picture above is an early drawing of the first Porsche design, the first watch actually made by Porsche Design. Porsche Design has been involved in the watchmaking business since 1972 and has collaborated with a range of different watch companies to produce their watch designs. Over the years, these brands have included brands such as Orfina, IWC and Eterna, but soon there will be a new era of in-house production by Porsche.
Earlier in 2014, Porsche Design Company terminated its long-term relationship with Swiss Eterna watches and produced timepieces for the German company based in Stuttgart. The exact reason for terminating this relationship is still unclear, but I think it may be related to Eterna being acquired by the Chinese company Haidian. After the acquisition, Eterna CEO Patrick Kury also stepped down, and it is unclear what the future of the two companies will look like. wholesale Hublot MP COLLECTION MP-05 LAFERRARI replica Watches
A few months ago, I talked to some people at Porsche Design to better understand the future direction. I was told that Porsche Design will continue to make watches, but they are not looking for new production partners. Instead, they will focus on in-house production and the Porsche-designed watch movement built in-house in the near future. Someone told me to wait, their first “internal” Porsche design watch will be released at the end of 2014 – less than a year after the breakup with Eterna.
I don’t usually like to talk to people in the watch industry, but it does affect the products that many people like and the brands that I really like. Porsche Design has just announced some interesting news. The first is to set up a Swiss subsidiary called Porsche Design Timepieces AG, which will of course produce watches in Switzerland. This will be handled by the larger Porsche Design Group whose CEO is Juergen Gessler. The second message is that the CEO of Porsche Design TImepieces will be Patick Kury.replica Porsche Design MONOBLOC ACTUATOR watches price
Therefore, by producing a Porsche design watch at Eterna, Mr. Kury will now transfer the internals to Porsche Design to continue his work. Watch enthusiasts know that his combination of engineering awareness and watchmaking combined with the design talent of Porsche designed to help create many very desirable products.
In the fall of 2014, the first new Porsche design watch will be released as Porsche Design Timepiece No. 1. We don’t have a complete image yet, but Porsche designed the above sketch to showcase the typical look of DNA designed by Porsche. At first glance, the design of the 1st watch may seem simple, but in fact it continues the modern minimalist and functional features of Porsche design. According to Porsche design, the team was influenced by the original chronograph design of 1972.
Although we don’t have much visual effects, there is some information about Porsche Design Clock 1. First of all, this model will not have internal manufacturing movements, but future models may. Currently, Porsche designs will use the proven Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic transmission. The case of the 1st watch has a case width of 42 mm (waterproof 50 m) and a black coated titanium case. In addition, the sapphire crystal case back window will be black and will have a custom Porsche design rotor (probably a new one).great Corum Admirals Cup replica Watches
Porsche Design 1919 Chronotimer Flyback ‘Brown and Leather’ Watch
At the 2017 Baselworld Watch Fair, Porsche Design launched their pride. After more than three years of development, Porsche designed to release their first internal movement, a flyback chronograph called Porsche Design Werk 01.200. Porsche design is known for its cutting-edge chronograph technology in watches, with some unconventional design qualities that often require confidence and a large number of wrists (Monobloc Actuator, anyone?). The Porsche design of Chronotimer Flyback Brown&Leather is filled with fresh air and provides a fair value proposition for the use of Werk 01.200’s reserved chronograph (Porsche drone).
Porsche chose titanium casings because they are often used for “lightweight performance” and, as usual, with a hollowed lug, the watch must be light. The case size is 42mm x 14.9mm, which is consistent with the other models in the series. The chocolate-brown dial makes this watch more like a sporty dress than a straight-plate sports chronograph. In fact, I think this is the most attractive model in the entire series, and it is conservative, I usually don’t see this from Porsche design. If the brown dial is not enough, the one-piece brown leather strap adds another layer of uniformity to the color and look of the watch.discount replica watches for sale
The oversized dial gave up a speedometer scale instead of the sixty-sixth chapter ring around the outer edge of the dial to “maximum legibility,” although I think this is a watch designed by a company known for cars. Interesting choice. The absence of a speedometer also distinguishes it from other products in the Chronotimer 1919 series, as it incorporates a small number of Porsche-designed watches without them. Another feature that I find cool is the hidden hour “ring”. The dark contrast with the black phone and the red pointed second hand retains enough motion detail while not being compromised by wearing the suit. In addition to the logo and the “Astronomical Observatory” at 3 o’clock, the date window is at 4 o’clock. I think the right side of the dial is a bit confusing, but it doesn’t necessarily affect the contemporary look of the overall watch.
For Porsche, the flyback chronograph movement is the star of the show. Porsche boasted of the COSC-certified Werk 01.200 calibre, quoting “If we want something, we have to invent it ourselves”, which is a bit confusing because the technology in the movement may be optimized, but not new. The flyback chronograph allows a single fader to be used to reset and restart the chronograph – this means you don’t have to stop, reset, and then start the chronograph again – this is very useful for the lap on the track. The sapphire caseback can be seen in the 4Hz movement, while the open barrel provides a good view of the gear train and flyback. The entire movement is made of black PVD and the rotor is made of tungsten steel – Porsche claims to “ensure strong winds.” Although the materials I received did not mention the power reserve, it is assumed to be the same as the 1919 Chronotimer series. ,48 hours. In addition, the watch can be waterproofed up to 100 meters.
I can’t deny that I like this watch – more than I want to admit. I think that Porsche designed to do a good job in designing a modern watch, this watch still retains the brand-related sportiness.AAA High Quality BREMONT JAGUAR MKI replica watch
