This, my friends, is the first watch officially made by Porsche Design completely in-house. Although they have been involved in watch design since 1972, in each case Porsche Design has worked with a range of different watch companies, including the likes of Eterna, IWC, and Orfina. Seeing an opportunity for the brand to go it alone and take all the decades of acquired knowledge and put it to their own exclusive use, Porsche Design is officially out with their Timepiece No.1. While we don't have full images yet beyond a preview shot and the sketch that has been out for weeks now, the image does reveal that the familiar Porsche Design DNA is still intact; a nice mix of modern simplicity and functionality with obvious influences from their first Chronograph watch from 1972. The Timepiece No.1 is an all-black affair with a 42mm titanium case that's treated for a beautiful matte finish that is equally durable. Inside, white markers provide a nice contrast to the black dial while a sapphire crystal case back protects the mechanical Valjoux 7750 chronograph mechanism that keeps the time with a power reserve of 48 hours. Expected to be limited to just 500 units worldwide, you better put the pedal the metal and head to Porsche Design.
