At a glance, the white chronograph hand and phosphorous green Heritage Design numerals and second markers clearly point to the decade that inspired the 911 Sport Classic chronograph. For the first time, Porsche Design is offering customization of the dial for this timepiece. In addition to the classic, matte black dial in Heritage Design, there is also the choice of either the iconic Sport Classic stripes in Light Sports Grey or the characteristic 1960s Pepita pattern, which is also used to accent the vehicle's interior.
The straps – one in classic black, the other in elegant cognac – are made of the same leather used in the vehicle interior and are finished with a '911' embossing. A quick-change system means they can be easily switched without the use of specialized tools. Matching the gold 'PORSCHE' lettering on the vehicle, the Porsche Design icon on the dial and '911 Sport Classic Limited Series' lettering on the running seconds dial are also gold. All of these intricate details are protected by sevenfold anti-glare sapphire crystal with hard coating, which prevents any distracting reflections.
The mechanical Porsche Design caliber WERK 01.200, with flyback function, is at work on the inside. Its high accuracy means that it has met the thorough testing standards for chronometres and obtained COSC certification, a title awarded to only the most precise watch movements. The movement's flyback function allows starting, stopping and resetting in a single operation. The pushers, which are laser engraved with 'START/STOP' and 'RESET' functions, emphasize the chronograph's functionality – and show that perfection really is timeless.
In a sports car, the wheels transfer the drive power from the engine to the road, and the winding rotor of the 911 Sport Classic chronograph plays an equally pivotal role. Every movement of the wrist winds the mechanism automatically. Ideal for when you are cornering. The 360-degree winding rotor's design is based on the wheels of the 911 Sport Classic and finished in black (high-gloss). The Sport Classic winding rotor is completed with a cover cap in the design of the central lock with the historic Porsche Crest. For even more thrills every minute.
Our founder and designer, Prof. F. A. Porsche, once said: 'If we wanted something, we had to make it ourselves.' And this is exactly how this special timepiece was created, in a very special place, by hand and with great attention to detail. At the Porsche Design timepiece manufacturing facility in Solothurn, Switzerland, founded in 2014. This is where the expertise of sports car and watch experts comes together to create a perfect symbiosis between the two disciplines and, in doing so, combines the highest standards of aesthetics with unbeatable performance and precision craftsmanship. The result: watches that extend the thrill of Porsche far beyond the road.
The chronograph caliber with flyback function is the result of three years of development: starting, stopping and resetting in one operation - with the stop time running, measuring successive intervals becomes even more effective.
