GOOSE BUMPS SINCE 1963. AND AROUND THE CLOCK.
Legend, myth, icon: the 911 has been the epitome of innovative design and engineering for 60 years. Created by the young Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, the successor to the 356 – initially named the 901 – won the hearts of sports car fans right from the start. Renamed as the now world-famous 911 in 1964, the icon has continued to illustrate what is still true today: that standing still is not an option for a sports car manufacturer. The constant further development and optimization of all components for even better performance on the race track and everyday comfort has been part of the recipe for success for the 911 from the start. This is how new generations of the legendary Porsche have been created – from the G model to the 964 to today’s 992.
These also include the 911 S/T 2.4., which was developed for racing using motorsport-proven lightweight components based on the 911 S and particularly raised the pulse of many Porsche enthusiasts in 1970. Harking back to this legendary variant of the 911, there is now the new 911 S/T, rolled out for the 60th anniversary of the 911 and strictly limited to 1,963 coveted units. Along the same lines, Porsche Design presents the Chronograph 1 – 911 S/T, which incorporates the characteristic features of its motorized counterpart in numerous details, bringing them to your wrist. The handcrafted chronograph from the Porsche watch manufactory in Solothurn, Switzerland, is reserved exclusively for owners of the new 911 S/T.
TWO DESIGN ICONS. INSEPARABLY LINKED.
“For me, it was about creating a watch to match the car.” Like the first 911, the iconic Chronograph I was designed by Prof. F. A. Porsche – and was the inspiration for this exclusive vehicle watch. The design principles have remained unchanged to this day to ensure optimum readability. The chronograph combines the best of both worlds. Therefore, it only makes sense that the lightweight construction concept of the Porsche 91 1 S/T has been transferred to the chronograph case, which is made of lightweight titanium. The high-quality details of the dial and the bezel ring in Black echo the display instruments of the 911 S/T.
The entire minute scale on the bezel ring recalls the heritage tachometer look – including the “60” highlighted in Red to mark the anniversary. All other numbers, the day and the date complete the look in Phosphorous Green. The White stop-seconds hand matches the color of the tachometer. Thanks to Super-Luminova® luminous material, the chronograph’s minute and hour hands tell you the time even in the dark. A printed gear shift pattern in Silver for the Chronograph 1 – 91 1 S/T and in Gold for the Chronograph 1 – 91 1 S/T Heritage underscores the close connection with the manually operated special model. The font of the letters H, M and S for hours, minutes and seconds is also derived directly from the gear shift pattern.
WE’RE NOT JUST CELEBRATING ANANNIVERSARY. WE’RE CELEBRATING AN ERA.
60 years of the 9 1 1. Over 50 years of Porsche Design chronographs. The same high standards. Entirely in the spirit of our founder, Prof. Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, who once said, “If we wanted something, we had to make it ourselves”. And that is exactly how this very special timepiece has been created – in a very special place, by hand and with great at tention to detail in Porsche’s very own watch manufactory in Solothurn, Switzerland, founded in 2014. This is where the exper tise of sports car designers and watch exper ts converges to create the per fect symbiosis between the two fields and, in so doing, combine the highest aesthetic standards with optimum readability and precision craftsmanship. For maximum thrills and new personal bests – for the next 60 years and far beyond.
