In a remarkable tribute to the enduring legacy of the Porsche 911 sports car, Porsche Design has introduced a captivating masterpiece – the limited-edition Chronograph 1 – 911 S/T, coinciding with the 60th anniversary of this automotive icon.
This extraordinary chronograph, produced in a limited quantity of 1,963 pieces, serves as a tribute to the renowned Porsche 911 S/T 2.4 model – a lightweight sports car engineered specifically for the demanding world of racing. In an homage to Porsche’s rich motor-racing heritage, the watch exhibits a sleek and dynamic design. Crafted from lightweight, uncoated, and sandblasted titanium, the watch is adorned with a dial and bezel ring finished in a sophisticated shade of black.
The watch face is adorned with numerals on the sub counters, minute scale, and day-date display, all coated in a radiant phosphorescent green tint. These luminous details contrast beautifully against the backdrop of white indices and hands. Notably, the number 60 on the minute scale is highlighted in striking red, serving as a nod to the specific significance of this anniversary.
The COSC-certified Porsche Design WERK 01.240 caliber is powering the chronograph, featuring a flyback function for enhanced functionality. The movement’s intricate workings are partially visible through the case back, designed to resemble the iconic 911 S/T alloy wheel.
This distinctive wheel design is offered in Brilliant Silver, Dark Silver, and Black variations, with the center emblem available in a choice of either the “S/T” graphic or the historic Porsche Crest. The watch straps also provide variety, with options including a sand-blasted titanium bracelet or rally leather straps available in elegant black or a timeless Classic Cognac hue.
Booking started on August 2, and enthusiasts and collectors could place their orders for the limited-edition Chronograph 1 – 911 S/T. This exceptional timepiece can be ordered through Porsche Centers and Porsche Design Stores, costing $13,500 USD. Interested individuals can visit the official Porsche Design website for further details about the watch and its availability.
