Porsche Design has launched a special edition of its Chronograph 1 to commemorate the brand’s fourth year as partner during the GP Ice Race in Austria.
The 250-piece limited edition echoes the original Chronograph 1 from 1972, often considered the first all-black chronograph.
New Porsche Design Chronograph 1 – GP Ice Race 2023 Edition.
The new Chronograph 1 – GP Ice Race 2023 Edition, like the original watch, offers the appearance of a Porsche 911 dashboard on the wrist, complete with luminescent hour markers and a matte-black dial.
But on the new watch, Porsche Design updates certain details, such as the use of a pointed minute hand and red chronograph hand. The minute hand of the original model was rectangular while the chronograph hand of that 1972 version was white.
Also reflecting modern technology, Porsche Design builds the new watch with a reflective, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and an uncoated, 40.8mm lightweight silver titanium case.
Inside the watchmaker fits its excellent COSC-certified WERK 01.240 caliber with a flyback function that powers a quick-switch date display and a bilingual day display. Porsche Design has engraved the edition number and the unusual GP logo on the case back. The logo, which depicts the Yeti sitting on a tractor, is unique to this limited edition.
Porsche Design also offers two bracelet options: a textile variant and a classic black version made of car leather and with a matte-black titanium folding clasp.
The Porsche Design Chronograph 1 – GP Ice Race 2023 Edition can be ordered on the Porsche Design website and in Porsche Design stores. Price: $9,650.
