Porsche Design released yet another Porsche-style watch with another 7750 Movement for SIHH 2011. Cool looking watches with great Porsche style, but they are all starting to blend into each other now.
PORSCHE DESIGN – P’6930 Chronograph
It’s not trying to hide it. In fact, it’s very proud of it! The P’6930 chronograph draws its inspiration from the legendary P’6910 and offers a variant with a consciously technical appeal. Its precision is enhanced by the use of titanium, the brand’s signature. An intersect between the automobile industry and watchmaking, it boasts many elements that evoke the Carrera GT: the pedal-shaped pushpieces, the grooved strap with its tyre-tread design, and the 7750 calibre “steering-wheel” rotor. A powerful, discreet and functional timekeeper, with well-oiled engineering.
