Porsche Design Replica Chronograph 1 GP 2022 unveiled
It's hard to argue that Porsche isn't an enduring brand. No doubt it has stood the test of time, but it has also shown incredible forward-thinking abilities. As evidence, consider the founding of Porsche Design. Under the leadership of Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, Porsche Design was founded in 1972, just 40 years after the brand's launch. "Butzi," the designer of the original 911, was tasked with applying his skills to other products, including sunglasses, watches and other accessories. This piece includes the Chronograph 1 watch. Now, Porsche is giving this classic timepiece an update to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its original launch.
The Porsche Design Special Edition Chronograph 1 features a 40.8 mm titanium case (replacing the original steel case used in 1972). Inside the case is a COSC-certified WERK 01.140 self-winding movement with a PD-Icon oscillating weight, a 48-hour power reserve, and a flyback function. Like the original, the new Chronograph 1 has a black aesthetic that includes everything from the titanium carbide-coated case to the bracelet.Replica watches for sale
To coincide with the launch of the watch, Porsche also unveiled a special pair of 911s. The first, a 1972 Targa, has been fully restored and will be on display at the Porsche Museum. The second was a more modern 72 Targa - the 992 Targa 4 GTS. Anyone who purchases one of these special Targas will also have the opportunity to purchase one of these watches, creating a matching set that no one else can match. It's a design that even Butzi can't argue with.
