ENGINEERING MEETS PERFORMANCE

THE PHILOSOPHY

THERE ARE WATCHES. AND THEN THERE ARE PORSCHE DESIGN TIMEPIECES.

Porsche Design follows a clear design philosophy: optimize function. Reduce the form right down to the essentials. Overcome the familiar to continually discover new and exceptional solutions.

PROF. F. A. PORSCHE

IF YOU ANALYZE THE FUNCTION OF AN OBJECT, ITS FORM OFTEN BECOMES OBVIOUS.

PROF. F. A. PORSCHE

DESIGNER OF THE LEGENDARY PORSCHE 911 AND FOUNDER OF PORSCHE DESIGN

A SOURCE OF INSPIRATION SINCE 1972: MOTORSPORTS

Porsche Design follows a clear design philosophy: optimize function. Reduce the form right down to the essentials. Overcome the familiar to continually discover new and exceptional solutions. Only then can we create unique design objects that move beyond the predictable, offer maximum performance and reflect the unmistakable Porsche DNA.

TWO DISCIPLINES, ONE MATERIAL: TITANIUM

Titanium is around 40 percent lighter than stainless steel and has been used for decades in the construction of race cars for the motorsports industry. Strong, malleable, durable, resistant to a wide range of temperatures and corrosion – and even aggressive agents. This lightweight metal is also suitable for people with sensitive skin and allergy sufferers, since it is completely free of nickel or chrome.

DESIGNED IN AUSTRIA, SWISS MADE

Timepieces by Porsche Design strike the perfect balance between design and function combined with fine Swiss watchmaking. Designers at Studio F. A. Porsche (Austria) and watchmakers at Porsche Design Timepieces AG (Switzerland) have collaborated over the years to produce numerous revolutionary concepts.
