Wherever it says Porsche, there is also Porsche in it. This applies to the sports car manufacturer as well as to the Porsche Design brand founded in 1972 by Ferdinand Alexander Porsche. You feel equally committed to the big name and develop products that Porsche drivers can also be enthusiastic about. Porsche brings design memories to life with the Porsche Heritage Design models, which are inspired by the zeitgeist of the 1950s – 1980s.
Just in time for the presentation of the Porsche 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition, Porsche Design presents the right timepiece for the vehicle. And one can assume that buyers of the vehicle model, limited to 992 pieces, would also like to call the matching chronograph 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition (10,950 euros) their own. The new Chronograph 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition is the first of four limited special watch models and was designed exclusively for future owners of Porsche Heritage Design vehicles.
With the new Porsche 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition, it is the little things that express the difference between a sports car and a Porsche. And you can quickly get the impression that the designers at Porsche Design have been inspired by it to express typical style elements via the timepiece.
The dial of the chronograph is designed in the style of the old speedometer. The original phosphor green of the rev counter was also recorded and implemented here. The hourly indices were of course designed in the typical Porsche font and can also be read in the dark.
The body …
… lives up to the name. For the case, the watchmakers chose titanium as the material in which the 01.100 movement is well protected. The bracelet is made of Porsche vehicle leather and comes in two lengths in the engineering colors bordeaux red and black. Of course, the seams were kept tone on tone.
Finally, a look at the underbody, …
… which should not only delight Porsche fans. However, you need some previous knowledge to recognize the similarity of the rotor to the legendary Fuchsfelge. The Porsche logo emblazoned in the middle, however, is likely to recognize most people as such. It’s great that you can look deep into the heart of the chronograph. From this look at the latest it’s love.
At Porsche Design, you don’t want to decide whether it’s a timepiece or a collector’s item. “Our answer is: Both,” it says confidently. One aspect should also be mentioned: the chronograph is also a commodity, albeit one that is as valuable as it is timelessly elegant. That is also Porsche tradition.
