Since working with the two companies for many years, Porche design replica watches and Eterna quickly expressed their intentions after separating. Eterna has been using the company to produce a variety of sober technical timepieces. (In fact, you can read my comments on Porsche Design Worldtimer timepieces during this period in the iW edition in March 2013). Porsche Design established its own Swiss timepiece department and appointed its former Eterna technical director Patrick Kury as president. A few months ago, Porsche Design launched two new timepieces.
The First model was independently developed by the new Porsche Design Timepieces AG (headquartered in Solothurn, Switzerland) and has a dual purpose. First of all, they mark the beginning of a new Porsche-centric design and production process for watches. Secondly, these new works review the breakthrough features of the two most successful early models produced by the brand in the 1970s and 1980s, namely Timepiece 1 and Titanium Chronograph made of matte black and titanium. In fact, the 1980 titanium timepiece is often regarded as the world’s first all-titanium case bracelet.
Anyone who knows or owns any of these early styles will recognize these latest watches. Of course, this is the point. The first models of the 2015 series, such as the Porsche Design cheap watches No.1 and the Porsche Design Chronograph Titanium Limited Edition as shown on the right, are limited to 500 pieces and can be immediately recognized as nonsense chronographs.
I have worn the latter model for about a week and it feels light on the wrist, which is not surprising considering its titanium case and clasp. However, even with the ETA Valjoux automatic chronograph movement, which is not particularly thin, the watch did not press my wrist as significantly as the watch made with this main movement. Maybe the padded calfskin strap worked magic on my senses.
The black dial here has a white mark and includes a five-minute indicator on the inner flange. When viewed with the black marking of the speedometer on the (fixed) bezel, the technology of the watch and the front paws of the car are absolutely clearly visible. The same red chronograph second hand as those earlier models appears here (as well as the No. 1 timepiece), reminding people in a nostalgic and practical way that Porsche Design insists on an easy-to-read dial.
The matte surface here is a technical color-slightly darker than my aluminum phone. As a result, it tells me where it performs its function, rather than broadcasting my wealth or status. The black matte version may send different messages-may be interested in stealth fashion.
Either way, these Online fake watches are the opposite of bling. I suspect that only those who wear or own other Porsche Design products can recognize the company’s logo at any distance, especially because the logo appears small on the dial, right above the Porsche Design name.
Finally, the above-mentioned padded calfskin strap is more functional than the luxury strap, and it is slightly different from the case position according to my preference. I usually prefer a strap with a tight strap firmly fixed to the case, because Porsche Design seems to equip the black timepiece No. 1 with a seemingly integrated rubber strap. Since I have not worn this model before, I can’t directly tell the actual fit, but it looks tighter than a belt. The titanium buckle is excellent. It has a simple size and can be fastened safely and effortlessly.
Porsche Design assures us that the genes of Ferdinand Alexander Porsche are embedded in these new models. Indeed, when Porsche designed these original models more than forty years ago, they mentioned the following principles: best readability, technical perfection, the highest quality materials and attention to function. Wearing the wholesale watch on the wrist can clearly see the storage contents of the new Porsche Design Timepiece. I firmly believe that these guidelines have been followed.
