The world of watchmaking and motoring, as we know, go hand in hand. Over the last 5 years, various fashion houses have created solid commercial and technological partnerships with the most famous and sporty car manufacturers; let's think of the Ferrari-Hublot, Lamborghini-Roger Dubuis, Bugatti-Jacob & Co or Mclaren-Richard Mille pairs. Among these, as you have noticed, the lack of those who make up the lion's share of the market both in terms of number of cars sold and annual turnover, namely Porsche, stands out.

The Stuttgart brand, in fact, has followed a different path than its competitors, choosing to develop its watches on its own through the Porsche Design brand and without using a partnership with other maison. In conjunction with the presentation of the brand new 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition, new development of the 992 series and produced in only 992 specimens, Porsche Design has decided to create a watch dedicated to this car that will be sold exclusively to its future owners. 

Il Chronograph 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition is the first of four limited edition watches that will accompany the launch of select 911 Heritage Design models based on cars from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. The Porsche Design style center has managed to customize its Chronotimer by skilfully mixing it with the historicity of the Porsche brand and the enormous technical and stylistic know-how at its disposal. 

The dial is the element with the most references to the Porsche world. The selected font, the color of the spheres and the color of the green "phosphor" details are inspired by the speedometer on the car dashboard, while the PD logo in gold at 3 o'clock and the dedication "911 Targa 4S" at 9 o'clock embellish it properly. Even the caliber of manufacture WERK 01.100 it is modified by introducing a rotor in two variants, glossy black and satin platinum, which evokes the design of the Fuchsfelge (Fuchs wheels) originally developed for the first Porsche 911; a detail that cannot fail to satisfy both watchmaking and motoring enthusiasts. Finally, the caseback is engraved with the watch number and the strap, made with the same black and burgundy leathers as the car and with tone-on-tone stitching, bears the engraved 911 logo. 

From a technical point of view, the watch has a 42 mm case, waterproof up to 100m, made of titanium with special hollowed lugs that reduce its weight and give it a unique appearance of its kind. The deployant strap is interchangeable without tools while the 4Hz automatic gauge it has the date at 4 o'clock and the chronograph indication of the hours and minutes at 6 and 12 o'clock respectively. The fact that the caliber is manufactured by Porsche Design and features the COSC certification it is a significant added value. 

The new Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition represents everything an owner of the new 911 Targa 4S (992) wants from their watch. Technically it is in step with the times, has a design that allows it to stand out thanks to the carved lugs and fits perfectly with the style of the interior of your car. It represents a further element of strong distinction and will make customers happy. 
Il selling price is 10'950 euros.
