Porsche Design Presents Exclusive New Timepieces within “1919 Collection”

Sporty-Elegant Designer Timepieces in the Premium Segment

Stuttgart. Finest design: With the market launch of the new Porsche Design “1919 Datetimer Eternity”, which is inspired by the clear lines and the functional aesthet-ics of the legendary Porsche 356, the Sports-Lifestyle brand underlines its compe-tency in the field of sporty-elegant timepieces within the “1919 Collection”. Along-side the unique design, the watch conveys the elegance of the 1950s and perfectly embodies the “Porsche heritage”. Characterized by its purity and its authentic, high-quality materials and executed in a well-balanced mix of titanium and real al-ligator leather strap, the gray-green color of the face and the bronzed watch case, the “1919 Datetimer Eternity” pays tribute to iconic design elements that can also be found in the classic Porsche 356.

The 1919 Datetimer Eternity: Passion for Architecture and Design
The “1919 Datetimer Eternity” transfers the functionality of modern architecture to the design of high-end timepieces. The characteristic openings at the lugs and the transition to the precious alligator leather strap add a special lightness to the pu-ristic aesthetics. The minimalistic design of the dial focuses the eye on the essen-tials of time and date. The new “1919 Datetimer Eternity Black Edition” adds four models in titanium and black, typical for Porsche Design and a reference to the company’s iconic heritage. These watches of timeless elegance and perfect craftsmanship are created to last.

The 1919 Chronotimer: Passion for Motorsports and Pure Performance
With the introduction of the “1919 Chronotimer”, Porsche Design creates an aes-thetic link between architectural design, sporty-elegance, and performance. The watch is powered by the mechanical Sellita SW 500 movement with a power re-serve of 48 hours and a date window at 4 o’clock. The black-tinted sapphire crystal case back allows for a view of the exclusive, energy-optimized Porsche Design Icon rotor. The diameter of the case is 42 millimeters. The “1919 Chronotimer” is available in the four typical Porsche Design variations in pure or black titanium carbide coating, with either a titanium or rubber strap.

Just like the “Chronotimer Collection”, all timepieces of the “‎1919 Collection” were developed by the company’s Swiss subsidiary, Porsche Design Timepieces AG, in Solothurn, Switzerland, in close cooperation with the Design Studio in Zell am See, Austria. The collection epitomizes the future direction of the Porsche Design Group in this segment. Designed in Austria. Swiss Made.

The new “1919 Collection” will be available in Porsche Design stores around the world as well as in select watch retailers from September on.
