Porsche Design Offers Chronograph Exclusively to 911 GT3 Owners

Today, German carmaker Porsche has just unveiled the latest generation of its track-ready sports car, the new 911 GT3 – 992 generation. Once again an extremely capable track-oriented car, it will certainly be pure adrenaline behind the wheel. To coincide with this launch, sister-company Porsche Design has transferred the thrill of high-performance racing into a distinctive chronograph available exclusively to buyers of the new Porsche 992 GT3, and just like the car, it will be fully customisable. Here’s the new Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3.

Knowing the strong connection between Porsche cars and Porsche Design, the design studio and watch manufacturer are presenting the watch that matches the car, a model available exclusively to buyers of the new 911 GT3 and that will be customisable to the max, so it will look as close as possible to the car it has been modelled after.

The new Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3 is based on the classic Chronotimer Series 1 architecture, a watch that pays tribute to the earliest models created by the Butzi Porsche in the early 1970s. Measuring 42mm in diameter, this chronograph is only proposed in titanium, a lightweight material that echoes the high-tech materials used in the Porsche 992 GT3 car. The case, which shows a matte, anti-reflective glass bead-blasted finish, is coated in black titanium carbide for a resolutely sporty look. Of course, knowing the vocation of this model, the bezel features an engraved tachymeter scale. Thanks to its screw-down crown, the watch has a 50m WR.

Porsche Design has revealed its new Chronograph 911 GT3, a watch that will only be offered to those taking delivery of the new 2022 Porsche 911 GTR supercar. Owners will be able to customize their watch to match their new supercar.

As standard, the Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3 is available in two editions: a sporty version with an applied dial ring in eye-catching Shark Blue (the colour used by Porsche for the presentation of the new 992 GT3) and a purist version with a colour ring in black. Both editions share the same dial with a matte black background and highly contrasted hands and markers, in white with Super-LumiNova or in yellow for the chronograph indications – the latter being modelled after the yellow accents found inside the new GT3. The layout is classic for the brand, with counters at 12 and 6 o’clock, and a running seconds at 9 o’clock.

For this new Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3, the brand once again uses the expertise of its sister-company, and the straps are made from genuine Porsche vehicle leather with “GT3” debossing and stitching in contrasting colours, in Shark Blue or GT Silver, depending on the version. Also, the straps are equipped with the brand’s innovative and practical quick-change system, so the strap can be changed easily and conveniently without the need for additional tools, by just pressing a pusher on the back.

The caseback underscores the strong connections that exist between these two Porsche entities. Under the sapphire caseback is the Porsche Design calibre WERK 01.200, a proprietary movement based on the architecture of the 7750 and highly modified according to PD’s requirements, with specific decoration, chronometer certification and, a typical racing-oriented feature, a flyback function. It beats at 4Hz and boasts 48h of power reserve. The most striking element is the rotor, recreated from the design of the Porsche 992 GT3 wheels, including a miniaturised centre lock featuring a silver GT3 logo. To match the car, the rotor is available in six colours – silver, dark grey, black with red stripe, black with blue stripe, full black or gold.

Finally, there’s more to the Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3 as it can be fully customised through the Porsche Design Custom Built Timepieces Program (available for German, UK and US markets). Thanks to an online configurator – owners of the 911 GT3 can personalise and adapt additional details on the watch to match their dream sports car. For instance, the case can be ordered in natural or black titanium, multiple bezel configurations are available, and the dial ring can be customised within the GT3 colour spectrum.

Of course, the strap can be ordered with contrasting stitches made from Porsche vehicle thread, and various colours of leather are available. Upon completion of the configuration, the customer receives an individual code that can be used to order the personalised timepiece at his/her local authorised Porsche dealer.

While no price has yet been announced for the car, the Porsche Design Chronograph 911 GT3 is available to design and order now. Depending on the chosen configuration, delivery takes eight to twelve weeks, and prices start from USD 8,050. Come into the beautiful and timeless world of Porsche Design.

Porsche Design 180

I believe that all of us know how a Porsche car looks like, but still many of us don’t know how does a Porsche perfume smell like. It is always impressive to owe a perfume from your brand’s favorite car. This autumn, Porsche Design 180 perfume shows up as a new luxurious accessory in the hands of manly-men. It is an elegant perfume with fresh hints to make it a worth fragrance for daily use, not just an occasional accessory. 

Porsche Design’s first perfume, The Essence, was introduced in 2008 with a successful feedback and then followed by other praised editions. Since then, the eponymous German design house launched modern, unique, and beautiful fragrances just like the exclusive and luxury cars they sell.

Created by perfumer Nicolas Beaulieu, the new masculine fragrance is a fresh/oriental perfume. Porsche Design 180 is an elegant yet masculine creation around unique and refined ingredients. Invigorating freshness of Lemon oil meets incisive spiciness of Cardamom for an explosive duo. Aromatic and spicy facets of Clary Sage oil and Black Pepper oil reveal a daring masculinity magnified by an energizing Iced Coffee cocktail. A refined and noble woodiness, expressed by a Cedarwood and Vetiver, contrasts with a rich Vanilla Bean scent for a memorable and addictive trail.

With a 180 degree turn, this distinctive bottle can be opened and closed refined. Technical twist, pure elegance and strong masculinity result in Porsche Design 180.

Porsche Design 180 is available as 50 and 100ml Eau de Toilette.
