An art in and of itself: keeping up with the zeitgeist. And at the same time outliving it. This has been the objective of all Porsche Design timepieces since 1972. And, since 2018, of the new Chronotimer Flyback Special Edition. Its fine, matte black carbon dial with white indices and hands create a sporty look in combination with optimal readability. By using titanium from the casing to the clasp Porsche Design guarantees the comfort one has come to expect. The chronograph features the new Werk 01.200 with flyback function. It ensures typical motorsports precision and creates an easily recognizable look with the black Porsche Design rotor. The result is exceptional performance, which is highlighted by the perfect combination of design and function inspired by motorsports.
