THE LEGENDARY MILITARY CHRONOGRAPH REVIVED

Die Evolution der Tradition.

01 Excellent readability under the most difficult conditions

The 'TiC' logo, which represents the use of titanium carbide, is also
a modern reinterpretation of the iconic 3H symbol of the military
chronograph. The abbreviation '3H' in the same location on the
historical chronograph indicated the use of the hydrogen isotope, tritium,
for the luminescent colour of the hands and dial indices.
This ensured excellent readability under the most challenging conditions –

02 even in the dark.

In the places where tritium was used back then, you can now find Blue Super-LumiNova®, which guarantees optimal readability, especially in the dark. There are also striking White dots at 12 o'clock, and the seconds and minute indices are thicker, making it even easier to read the time.

03 The "Mankei" icon - a homage to F.A.T.

The dials back then featured the unit's tiger head emblem, matching the flying squadron. Today, you will find a screeching 'Mankei' in place of the big cat – the Pinzgau region term for marmots. The icon references the collaboration with F.A.T. and their 'Mankei' location on the Großglockner High Alpine Road.

04 Limited Edition

To emphasise the exclusivity of this limited edition, there is an engraving on the case back with the Mankei and the 'Chronograph 1 Utility Edition' lettering – accompanied by the limited-edition number XX/250. The crown of the chronograph is adorned with the historic Porsche Design logo.

05 THE INNOVATION: TITANIUM CARBIDE.

Through the use of titanium carbide, the Chronograph 1 Utility – Limited Edition sets new standards in terms of robustness and aesthetics. As the first over-the-counter chronograph made with this material, Porsche Design is the only watch manufacturer to present a timepiece made entirely of this revolutionary material.

Functionality and aesthetics combined.

This limited edition watch is delivered with three different straps. The Slate Grey 'Bund' strap, made of Porsche vehicle leather with quick-change mechanism, is inspired by the design of the legendary military chronographs. The White textile strap, with badge showing the coordinates of the F.A.T. Ice Race, was developed in collaboration with F.A.T. International in 2024 on the occasion of the ice races in Zell am See and Aspen. 

With the third strap, the Mankei strap, Porsche Design and F.A.T. International are celebrating the Mankei opening while paying tribute to the ever-growing F.A.T. community. The textile/leather strap is produced in a trendy Beige tone and the design is rounded off by the embossed coordinates of the Mankei on the inside of the strap.
