Porsche Design launches new products for 2018

In 1972, after Ferdinand Alexander Porsche retired from Porsche’s operations, he decided to establish a watch (and other product) design company. Since he became a designer, he not only developed the 911, but was also responsible for all design aspects of the Porsche car concept. His goal is to continue the concept of low-key, simple but efficient design, functionality and purism, and apply it to the cheap Porsche Design product line. Clear readability and reliable functions are the core values-combined with beauty. You can always find elements inspired by Porsche sports cars and racing cars. Ferdinand Alexander Porsche has used titanium for the watch case from the beginning, a material derived from the lightweight structure of racing cars.

The Porsche Design 1919 series welcomes new members. This is the 1919 Chronotimer FlybackBrown & Leather. Since most Porsche Design watches are in black or natural titanium colors (they are all titanium, but sometimes coated), this time brown adds more formal watch touch to the sporty collection. The case design is kept slim to maintain a clear dial design. This feature can even be supported by ignoring the tachymeter scale. The new movement Werk 01.200 with flyback function is a basic movement specially built for Porsche Design. It was first launched in an exclusive series in 2017.

The next novelty we checked was added to the Chronotimer series. This is the new Chronotimer Flyback special edition. That is similar to the novelty of 1919 mentioned above, but completely different in the case design. The Chronotimer series uses a tachymeter scale and a matte black titanium case-inspired by the cockpit instruments, which is more sporty. In order to strengthen the connection with the racing car and its lightweight structure, the dial is made of black carbon fiber, and the strap is made of the same leather used inside the car-even the red stitching is the same. It is also equipped with the new Werk 01.200 with flyback function. The Chronotimer Flyback Special Edition is available in mid-June.

For more excitement, Porsche Design has added two new versions to its Monobloc Actuator series. Here, we are talking about sports-watches have nothing to do with formal watches, but they are full of power. Looking at this timepiece, you can almost smell burning tires and oil dripping from the track. The Monobloc Actuator Chronotimer Flyback Limited Edition is not without reason. It is inspired by the Porsche 911 RSR racing car. The carbon fiber dial is again based on the chassis of the Porsche 911 RSR. The black details of the white and red hands on a light background are inspired by the colors of the Porsche GT team working closely with Porsche Design. It is limited to 251 pieces. Why is it such an odd number? Because the wheelbase of the 911 RSR is exactly 251 cm, this is essential for improving the weight distribution between the axles.

The second new product in the Monobloc Actuator series is the 24H Chronotimer All Black. It is basically the same as the above model, except that there is no new Werk 01.200, but a 24-hour scale and a black titanium bracelet are added. The difference between these two watches and other series is that instead of using the two standard buttons on the side of the case to trigger the stopwatch function like traditional chronographs, the chronograph function of Monobloc Actuator activates the rocker switch by a single pressure operation. Integrated in the shell. Similar to the mechanism used in the Porsche 911 RSR engine.

The new Monobloc Actuator Chronotimer Flyback Limited Edition comes with a rubber strap with Alcantara leather inlays, while the Monobloc Actuator24H Chronotimer All Black comes with a titanium strap with a black titanium carbide coating. As you know, these two watches are designed for speed lovers.

Blancpain Tribute to Fifty Fathoms No Rad for Only Watch

Cool Blancpain pays tribute to only 2021 50 Fathoms No Rad

Blancpain’s popular vintage diving observation orange and no date

Every two years, the watch industry surrounds a great career, through donating unique watches, a unique watch during this year, can only watch. This idea is to create a special model, never do anything, and in all fair, all brands are definitely playing this game, with amazing watches. As always, there are always some models to seize our attention, for example, this year is the unique work of Blancpain, and the orange (this year’s theme) is a 50-year-old Fathoms No Rad.

The NO RAD name is certainly important for diving observation enthusiasts, specializing in collecting military models. Some of the watches have a special forces and Flock, BlancPain has always been a top choice, which is a prognostic manner in the field of diver instruments. In 1953, BLANCPAIN and the President Jean-Jacques FIECHTER showed one of the earliest submersible watches, which would be incredibly legitimate and attract the army around the world. For example, BlancPain has developed a Watch of German military-or “bundeswehr” in the mid-1960s – so-called fifty Fathoms RPG 1 model, or “Bund No Rad”. This watch is equipped with “Campwiimmer”, the Elite German Frogman Commando unit, until the early 1970s. The difference attribute of the RPG 1 model is the “non-radiation” flag found in 6 o’clock on the dial.

These “non-radiating” BLANCPAINs, their dials indicate that there is no laser dial because height can be collected. For this reason, the brand shows these “no” watches to contribute tribute to these “no” watches in 2010. 5015B pays tribute to the fifty-year-old Fathoms.

BlancPain specially observed 2021 watches based on NO RAD table in March 2021, most of which have the same specifications, but with multiple elements, making this model unique – and more bold. What is it? Well, only the situation only used to observe the 2021 RAD, means a fairly compact polished stainless steel box 40.30mm, with thread and shovel and 300 meters of water resistance. The cautious gap between the border, the side is also maintained, but the insert is different, and the dial is also the same.

For each version, only the design specific color chart and this year’s fundraising plan are based on orange theme. Although not all brands are decided to use this color in their unique watches, BlancPain is advantageously depends on this bold color to create a unique NO RAD. First, the baffle insert made by the dome and the glossy sapphire crystal, it sees its 60-minute level, the lower luminescent material below.

Then, the tribute dialing to the fifty Fathoms NO RAD is only used to observe the RAD of 2021 and slightly modified. Obviously, orange is found in the mark and hands. Both have very different than classic nonlinear curves because the combination of display points and rectangles is marked and applied on the dial. In the same vein, the hand is white painted instead of polishing metal. Other differences in this OW model are No Rad logo, and now has orange background with yellow logo. The matte black base is still the same, but if you look closely, you will see this unique work is a ban, and the version of March 2021 has a date window in the date window of 3 o’clock.

Orange is not the easiest color, sometimes causes the watch of the tits. But here, I must admit that the way BlancPain is just amazing. Orange almost makes the watch tropics, super solidification, more vivid, not traditional models. Never say, there is no date to show that there will be more than one fan. In the rest, the watch is still sized, comfortable, and tropical rubber straps.

It is also a slight different movement under the hood. The standard production model is equipped with Calibre 1151. For this Ower Edition, BlancPain is using Calibre 1154, which shares the same technical foundation, but a real no-date movement (there is no ghost position here). At 3Hz, it has a 100-hour power reserve, and is decorated, with a black coating rotor of pure gold, with special “only watch” inscription. replica RAFAEL NADAL watches
