The future of Porsche design replica watches and timepieces first The picture above is an early drawing of Porsche Design Timepiece No. 1. As far as we know, this is the first watch officially manufactured by Porsche Design. Porsche Design has been engaged in watchmaking since 1972, and has cooperated with many different watchmaking companies to produce its watches. Over the years, these brands include Orfina, IWC and Eterna, but Porsche Design is about to enter a new era of in-house production.
In early 2014, Porsche Design terminated its long-term partnership with Swiss Eterna watches to produce timepieces for the German company headquartered in Stuttgart. The exact reason for the termination of the relationship is not yet clear, but I think it may be related to the acquisition of Eterna by the Chinese company Haidian Group. After the acquisition, Patrick Kury, CEO of Eterna, also resigned, and it is not clear what the future holds for the two companies.
A few months ago, I had a conversation with some people from Porsche Design to better understand the future development. I learned that Porsche Design replica 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-house manufacturing of Porsche Design watch movements in the near future. I was told to wait a moment, their first “internal” Porsche Design watch will be released at the end of 2014, less than a year after the breakup with Eterna, and more will be discovered soon.
I usually don’t like to talk about topics in the watch industry, but it does affect the products that many people like, and it also affects the brands I like very much. Porsche Design just announced some interesting news. The first is the establishment of a Swiss subsidiary called Porsche Design Timepieces AG, which will of course produce watches in Switzerland. This will be part of the larger Porsche Design Group, whose CEO is Juergen Gessler. The second piece of news is that the CEO of Porsche Design TImepieces will be Patick Kury.
Therefore, starting with the production of Porsche Design watches in Eterna, Mr. Curry now transfers himself internally to Porsche Design to continue his work. price replica Watch lovers know that the combination of his engineering ideas for watchmaking and the design talent of Porsche Design has helped create many very ideal products.
In the autumn of 2014, the first new Porsche Design watch, the first Porsche Design timepiece, will be released. We don’t have the complete image yet, but Porsche Design released the sketch above, revealing the typical appearance of Porsche Design DNA. At first glance, the design of the No. 1 timepiece looks simple, but in fact, it continues the modern simplicity and functional features that Porsche design is known for. According to Porsche Design, the team was influenced by the original chronograph design in 1972.
Even if we don’t have much visual effects, there is still some information about Porsche Design Timepiece No.1. First of all, the model will not have an in-house manufactured movement, but future models may be built in. Currently, Porsche Design will use the proven Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic transmission. The case of the No. 1 timepiece will be 42 mm wide (water-resistant to 50 meters) and coated with black-coated titanium. In addition, the back window of the sapphire crystal case will be painted black, and there will be a custom Porsche Design rotor (maybe a new rotor). Discount replica watch
The elegant blue color scheme brings the Porsche 911 legend to the wrist.
Simple and exquisite, well-designed, adhering to the principles of true ergonomics, exactly the same as the name of this watch, the car is precisely manufactured. Porsche-designed watches are unique in the best sense of this term. However, they are not just a style exercise; Porsche design watches bring you more than a beautiful face. We have seen this in the past, and it still appears in the brand’s latest work, including the new version of Porsche Design 1919 Chronotimer Flyback, and there is now a new (and handsome) Blue & Leather version.
It doesn’t matter whether you like cars or not. Although the Porsche design table is designed according to the spirit of Porsche, it is not necessarily designed as a car-related product. When you look at 911, it has been the icon of motorsport that has been around since 1963, and it has obviously withstood the test of time and has become a timeless contemporary engineering work. You will find that Porsche Design knows one or two things. Create beautiful but excellent machines.
Porsche Design Watches – and most of the items produced by Studio FA Porsche – share one thing: love the simple, simple design, and the details are not just for decoration. At first it sounds a bit dull, but in fact it is not. The beauty of Porsche design watch lies in its reasonable German philosophy “form follows function”, in which ergonomics guides the designer’s pen. As early as 1963, Ferdinand Alexander “Butzi” Porsche designed 911. In 1972, he created his first watch, using titanium and black coatings, which is a fact. Seeing the current Porsche Design 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Blue & Leather reinforces this concept.
Porsche 1919 design, unique appearance Since its birth, Porsche Design fake has been adhering to the low-key, stylish, ergonomic design concept, and launched its first Porsche-designed watch in 1972. Everything you see on your watch is for good reason. Each shape has a reason for its existence. As far as Chronotimer in 1919 is concerned, its shape is comparable to any other product on the market.
The 1919 series, regardless of the movement or complexity of the case, are built around a very special design. It all starts with a simple cylindrical central container. Then there is the remaining box, which is designed to increase resistance, strength and (mainly) ergonomics. The case is designed as a whole, conforms to the curvature of the wrist, and has a hollow lug module, so that the center case is actually a floating case. Although the lines are very smooth, this watch still has an excellent appearance and authentic personality. The feeling is consistent and has the overall “design” feeling.
This Porsche Design 1919 Chronotimer Flyback has a case diameter of 42 mm and a height of 14.9 mm. It is not a small watch by itself. Visually speaking, it is also very big. Nevertheless, this is a costume worth wearing. On the wrist, the concept of ergonomics really makes sense. Balanced, fixed, sturdy but not huge… quite special.
Of course titanium
What would the Porsche design be without a titanium case? This material is part of the brand’s DNA. With the help of IWC technology (since 1978, IWC is a manufacturing partner of Porsche Design), the brand became one of the first companies on the market to introduce all-titanium watches (including titanium bracelets) (1970, Citizen was the first to use titanium in watches), which later became a symbol of PD watches.
For many years, titanium has been PD’s favorite, for good reason. Focusing on ergonomics, titanium allows Porsche Design to freely make larger watches without affecting the comfort or performance of the watch. Titanium is 40% lighter than stainless steel, but its high tensile strength makes it the material of choice for racing cars. Of course, Porsche Design 1919 Chronotimer Flyback is made of titanium, but now it is grade 5, which allows the brand to combine the usual frosting on the bezel and putter, glass bead blasted surface and elegant polished decoration. Combining the unusual but effective shape of the watch case with this material can improve wrist comfort. watches of men
Blue dial and 911 leather
Designing the 1919 Chronotimer flyback at Porsche is not a completely new model. It showed its new mechanism at the 2018 Basel International Watch and Jewelry Show. The models we provide here are new versions with new colors and new belts. The first is the new dark blue dial – this color really matches the dark tones of titanium. The dial of the 1919 chronograph dial follows the same rules as the case. The clarity here is the key, and the location of all indications should be appropriate and distinguishable from each other. The dial has a variety of surface treatment effects, and the center area is frosted blue and round brushed minutes.
The dial is simple, efficient and symmetrical. The hands and hour hand are filled with Super-LumiNova, all indications are displayed in white, in contrast to the blue background. The chronograph display includes a central seconds hand and 30-minute and 12-hour counters. In order to maintain the balance of the dial, the small seconds hand has been reduced to a cautious running indicator, which displays the logo at 3 o’clock. Maybe for the sake of elegance, you can delete the date.
The color of this new Porsche Design 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Blue & Leather is relatively cautious, corresponding to the overall simplicity of the watch. PD is often seen on titanium bracelets, and PD decided to add an elegant touch to this strap through an integrated leather strap made of high-grade calfskin-the same material used in the interior of Porsche sports cars. The strap blends perfectly with the design of the watch and has grey stitching and a titanium folding clasp.
Timed flyback engine
For many years, Porsche Design watches have been equipped with ETA Valjoux movements or Lemania movements. For example, a previous Chronotimer chronograph like 1919 relied on a third-party movement – to be precise, Sellita SW-500. However, in 2017, the brand decided to improve the gaming performance and launch a new movement, the “GT3 version” of the automatic chronograph… sharper, more precise, with better performance and more features.
This movement, called Porsche Design Calibre WERK 01.200, was developed in-house and is now manufactured by a trusted third party according to Porsche Design’s own specifications. Therefore, this is the so-called “proprietary” sport-a practice often used in automobile manufacturing.
The WERK 01.200 movement is an integrated automatic cam chronograph that shares its infrastructure with the trusted Valjoux base. However, it has been upgraded on multiple levels. First, it is equipped with a flyback function, which can continuously record multiple timing sessions. Just press the button at 4 o’clock to perform a stop-reset-start sequence, rather than the classic 3-step sequence-this is very useful for pilots and crew members to continuously time several laps. In addition, the movement has the quality of tungsten windings, which can improve the winding efficiency.
The movement focuses on precision and has obtained COSC certified astronomical timepieces-the Swiss Official Timekeeping Bureau. The rest of the specifications are familiar, with a frequency of 4 Hz and a power reserve of 42 hours. The movement is decorated with a blackened bridge, dial and rotor, in sharp contrast with rhodium-plated and brass parts. discount watches
