Porsche Design Chronograph 1 Utility Limited Edition
Porsche Design's iconic chronograph greets watch lovers with a new version that pays homage to nostalgic military-themed watches.
Porsche Design occupies a special place among today's design-focused brands, consolidating its heritage in watches with a new limited-production model. Inspired by the legendary 1972 chronograph, the design studio’s first product, the new version will delight not only loyal fans of the brand, but also fans of military-themed vintage chronographs.
Before we discuss that model, let’s talk about the Chronograph 1’s military connections, as the details there form the basis of the Utility version. With its industry-first design and anti-reflective black coating, the Porsche Design Chronograph 1 established direct links with the world of motorsport for the first time and quickly attracted the attention of the military for its performance. Lt. Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, played by Tom Cruise in the 1986 blockbuster "Top Gun," also wore one on his wrist Porsche Design Chronograph. The brand produces models for the West German Bundeswehr or the U.S. Air Force flying fleet, and features a red, round 3H symbol (representing the use of the hydrogen isotope tritium) on these military-themed watches. These models, in which the word "Military" replaced the manufacturer's Orfina and PD logos at the time, are among the most popular of today's Porsche Design retro models.
With this information out of the way, let’s start with the watch face. The Chronograph 1 Utility’s matte black dial pays homage to vintage military models. Replacing the 3H logo is the phrase TiC (titanium carbide) written in the same font. The word "practical" replaced the word "military". The US Air Force's tiger head emblem is being replaced by a screaming marmot (known as "Mankei" in Pinzgau, Austria) and Ferdi Porsche's car on the Grossglockner alpine road near FA Porsche's studio A new destination for enthusiasts). The sports dial features dark red accents and highly legible hands and hour markers.
The new case design has a diameter of 40.8 mm and a height of 14.15 mm. The case is made of titanium carbide with a micro-sandblasted surface that enhances its tactical appearance, making it durable and lightweight. The case is made of sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating on the front and is resistant to 100 meters of water pressure.
At the heart of the new model is the WERK 01.240 movement signed by Porsche Design. The COSC-certified automatic movement runs at 4 Hz (28.800 vibrations/hour) and offers a power reserve of up to 38 hours when fully wound.
This model comes with a gray leather strap and a white fabric strap.
