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
