On this occasion, the manufacturer of Porsche Design Timepieces has created a specific chronograph reserved exclusively for the lucky owners of one of the 1,250 copies produced. the Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Sport Classic is therefore logically limited to 1250 pieces.
It’s not the first time Porsche design designs a watch reserved for owners of a new Porsche. This was the case in 2020 with the Chronograph 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition (read here) dedicated to the Porsche that ushered in the “Heritage Design” program, or even the Chronograph 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series and Chronograph 911 GT2 RS (read here) in 2017 and the 911 Speedster Chronograph (read here) in 2019.
the Chronograph 911 Sport Classic contains many stylistic details reminiscent of the car. Starting with the sporty dial that adopts the Heritage Design design of the 911 Sport Classic’s central tachometer with a green timer and numbers, a central chronograph seconds hand and white indexes.
It is available in two versions: matt black with a double “Light Sport Gray” stripe reminiscent of the car’s body or with a pied de poule pattern like the famous “Pepita” fabric from the 1960s upholstery of the gold-coloured “Porsche Design” logo such as the continuous seconds disc at 9 o’clock that reads “911 Sport Classic Lim. Serie”. The two counters indicate the hours and minutes of the chronograph. The openwork hour and minute hands are harmoniously lined with white luminescent material.
The 42mm diameter case (water resistant to 100m) is made of ultra-light titanium and can be ordered with a black DLC finish. It is fastened to the wrist with a strap made of the same “Classic Cognac” leather that adorns the interior of the 911.
On the engine side, the Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Sport Classic receives a high-end manufacturing timepiece developed and produced entirely in-house. This is the automatic caliber Werk 01.200 already on the left 911 Speedster Chronograph which offers a 48-hour power reserve. It includes a “flyback” chronograph function, a highly sought after complication that allows resetting and instantaneous starting of a new timing with a single press of one of the pushers. It is chronometer-certified by the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), a guarantee of precision and reliability. Turning the watch over, you can admire the oscillating weight that allows automatic winding of the timepiece that takes the shape of the rims of the 911 Sport Classic.
