Exclusive Porsche Design 911 GT2 RS Chronograph Is A Nice Add-On To The Porsche 911 GT2 RS

Exclusive Porsche Design 911 GT2 RS Chronograph Is A Nice Add-On To The Porsche 911 GT2 RS

The watch comes at an extra cost of $11,000 on top of the $300,000 sports car

The new Porsche 911 GT2 RS has been tipped as the fastest and most powerful production 911 in history. It’s also the most expensive one with a starting price tag of $294,250. The good news is that those 1,000 customers who managed to reserve a slot for the 911 GT2 RS will also get the opportunity to score some fancy accessories along the way for their trouble. One of these accessories is the Porsche Design 911 GT2 RS Chronograph, the first-ever watch from Porsche Design whose clock movement was developed in-house.

As with most premium watches, the 911 GT2 RS Chronograph strikes quite an impression. Design elements from the actual 911 GT2 RS were used to highlight the unique look of the watch, from the tungsten winding rotor that was inspired by the wheel patterns of the sports car to the carbon fiber clock face and the display the takes from the design of the tachometer. Functionally, the chronograph features a brand new Caliber Werk 01.200 movement by Porsche Design that includes a flyback function and a load-path-optimized movement bridge. Oh, and it also comes with a titanium case just in case the level of premium exclusivity isn’t evident enough. The Porsche Design 911 GT2 RS Chronograph is a nice ancillary add-on to a car that packs 700 horsepower and is limited to just 1,000 units, each priced at $11,000.

New Limited-Edition Watch from Omologato Pays Tribute to Porsche 917

New Limited-Edition Watch from Omologato Pays Tribute to Porsche 917

Limited to only 200 examples and quite affordable

A while back I did a piece about what I consider to be the 10 coolest motorsport-inspired watches you can buy. The list included some fine timekeepers, but it looks like I might have to update it to include Omologato’s new, limited-edition timepiece, which pays tribute to the iconic Porsche 917 race car.

Although Omologato isn’t the first company to build a 917-inspired watch — BRM’s BT-12 46 Gulf is pretty neat (and expensive) — this new release pays tribute to the what is arguably the most iconic example of the race car. Not including the Gulf-painted mock-up featured in Steve McQueen’s "Le Mans" movie, that is. Specifically, Omologato’s timepiece takes inspiration from the No. 23 Porsche Salzburg version that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans race in 1970.

This is visible in the red, while, and black color scheme based on the livery of the actual car, as well as the three small dials. The one on the left is red, the center dial is finish in red with white stripes, just like the car’s front hood, while the one on the right is white and features the famous number 23. The 22mm black Italian leather strap has Guards Red stitching, while the 43mm face comes in a matte-finished frame with chrome accents, and a "917" insignia at the bottom.

The watch is powered by a Japanese Quartz movement of which Omologato says it delivers the "desirable level of precision, reliability and accuracy that only comes with the very best watches." The 917-inspired timepiece is limited to only 200 examples and each will be sold with an ownership certificate, together with a bespoke case. Those who pre-order can choose the number of their watch. Speaking of orders, the timekeeper costs only £339, an affordable sticker given the specifications (also due to the fact that Omologato is a new brand, being established in 2015. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in January 2017.

Porsche Design P'6620 Dashboard Watch

Porsche Design P’6620 Dashboard Watch

Porsche’s product design division, Porsche Design, has produced some of the best auto-branded watches in the world today. With their latest creation, Porsche Design is updating their classic P’6620 Dashboard watch with something that’s a little more in tune with the taste of the modern gentleman.

Taking inspiration from the instrument cluster of a Porsche 911 and incorporating it into the design of the timepiece, Porsche was able to take a modern day iteration of one of their classic watches.

The case and bracelet of the watch is made out of lightweight, non-allergenic titanium, which is the same material that Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche first began to use in watchmaking way back in 1980. It’s available in a deep black color that was created by shot-blasting titanium and covering it with a layer of black PVD.

The watch also features a 44-milimeter case, an anti-glare, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and an ETA Valjoux 7753 chronograph function with power reserve.

Any time you have a watch that was produced using high-quality materials and built with meticulous craftsmanship, it’s going to cost more than a standard digital. For the privilege of owning the P’6620 Dashboard, you’ll need to shell out €3,950, or around $6,000 based on current exchange rates.

Porsche Design P'6520 Compass Watch

Porsche Design P’6520 Compass Watch

The newest addition to the Porsche Design timepiece collection is more than just a watch; it’s a compass, too. Called the P’6520 Compass Watch, the timepiece comes with the dual purpose of a watch and a compass that was inspired by its predecessor, which was first built in 1978 by no less than Ferdinand Alexander Porsche.

The modern iteration of the old classic is made out of anti-allergenic titanium, primarily because the material is not magnetic and thus, should not affect the magnetic needle of the compass. The P’6520 Compass Watch features a three-hand watch with luminescent hands driven by SW300 Sellita cailbre. Just underneath the watch is a liquid compass that by itself, can be easily detached.

There’s also a scratch-resistant mirror, which, when opened, clicks into place at a 45-degree angle. Being a Porsche Design timepiece, the P’6520 Compass Watch is made out of titanium and black PVD coating and has been designed to be water resistant of up to 50 meters.

For a merchandise brand that has taken old classics - the P’6930 Chronograph also comes into mind - and given them modern day re-issues, the new 911-piece P’6520 Compass Watch is poised to become another must-have for Porsche fans the world over.

The P6910 Indicator is the impressive work of Porsche Design. It runs on the dependable Eterna caliber 6036 movement with its automatic, double-sided winding system. The movement has four barrels and a 46-hour power reserve. With roughly 800 individual parts, the Eterna caliber 6036 is the world’s most complex series-manufactured watch movement.

The P6910 Indicator will be offered in three versions: one version features a case made of PVD C Titanium, another one features a rose gold material while the other one S.P. Titanium. All three versions maintain the same design features and embrace the same sportier look.

Tag Heuer creates limited edition Monaco timepiece for Porche Club of America's 55th anniversary

Tag Heuer creates limited edition Monaco timepiece for Porche Club of America’s 55th anniversary

Porsche Club of America is turning 55 years old this year and a certain high-end Swiss watchmaker is helping them mark this occasion by producing a special edition 55-piece watch for the world’s largest single-brand club.

The watchmaker is Tag Heuer and, given the rich history between them and the car brand Porsche, it only seems fitting that these two would tie-up again sooner or later. As we’ve mentioned, the special edition Tag Heuer Monaco watch will be limited to only 55 pieces to commemorate the PCA’s 55th anniversary.

If you know your Tag Heuer history, you’ll probably remember how actor Steve McQueen, in his role in the movie Le Mans, used friend and Porsche racer Jo Siffert as his inspiration in his role. At that time, Siffert also happened to be the first driver to be sponsored by a watchmaker, which happened to be Heuer. As part of his role, McQueen decided to wear the brand’s Monaco watch during the filming, after which, improbable as it sounds, the Porsche Tag Heuer collaboration was born.

And so, 55 years after the birth of the Porsche Club of America, the two luxury brands are tying up again to earmark the PCA’s anniversary. This particular watch includes a chronograph and will come with a special dial that has been designed in both red and black rally stripes with the racing number ‘55’ and the PCA’s logo engraved on the back. The special edition watch also comes with a special black leather strap with its own set of racing holes and red stitching.

Needless to say, this particular watch isn’t just for anybody, since only 55 examples will be made. And given the rather exclusivity of the item, it shouldn’t come as any surprise to all of us that the watch comes with a retail price of $5,500.
