It’s about time for design icons
In cooperation with Sotheby’s, the world's premier destination for art and luxury, two unique design icons will be offered as a single lot in a dedicated online auction conducted on RM Sotheby’s website, with bidding open from 29 November until 14 December. The elaborately restored Porsche 911 S 2.4 Targa from 1972 and a very special one-off timepiece: the Chronograph 1 – 911 S 2.4 Targa, which also dates from the founding year of Porsche Design. The heritage timepiece and exceptional one-of-a-kind classic Porsche will be auctioned as a bundle during New York Luxury Week 2022. The special design of the back of the watch case evokes the historic Fuchsfelge wheel of the Porsche 911 S 2.4 Targa. Another highlight: the VIN of the vehicle is engraved on the case back of the Chronograph 1.
Developed at the Porsche Design in-house watch Manufaktur in Solothurn, Switzerland, the Chronograph 1 transforms the movement of the wearer’s wrist into energy in a rotationally optimized way to power the Chronograph’s mechanical movement. It perfectly transfers the unique 911 Targa feeling to the wrist and makes this an absolutely exclusive timepiece that honors the past, celebrates the present, and transports the brand into the future.
The one off 911 Targa and Chronograph will be on public display during Sotheby’s Luxury Week exhibit in New York from November 30 – December 14, 2022. The online bidding on RM Sotheby’s web site runs from November 29th through December, 14th. To follow the online auction, simply register on RM Sotheby's site.
