To celebrate 70 years of Porsche, the legendary car company is marking the special occasion than with a unique new timepiece: the 1919 Datetimer 70Y Limited Edition.
Created by Porsche Design, numerous design features and materials from the legendary Porsche 356, the predecessor of the Porsche 911, are brought back to life in this special anniversary model.
Boasting a titanium casing, which houses Swiss automatic clockwork with a 38-hour power reserve, the 1919 Datetimer 70Y has an elegant black look to it thanks to its titanium carbide coating.
The black dial face features the silhouette of the 356, along with the date 1948 – which marks the “birth” of Porsche.
Also, in homage to the instrument cluster of the Porsche 356, the dial face is designed with the characteristic rings of the rev counter. And the strap of the anniversary watch has been created from the same premium leather as the vehicle seats.
An added special touch is the “70 years” logo on the bottom of the casing in tribute to this year’s anniversary.
The $3,500 1919 Datetimer 70Y Limited Edition is limited to just 1948 pieces — the same number as the year Porsche came into existence.
