Porsche Design is presenting another new collection of timepieces. While the Chronotimer Collection represents dynamics and sportiness, the new 1919 Collection perfectly embodies serenity, well-balanced aesthetics, and purist minimalism.
“With this collection, we are uniting the past with the future,” explains Dr. Christian Kurtzke, President & CEO at the Porsche Design Group. “We are honoring the Bauhaus style as a significant element of our brand’s DNA and are celebrating the upcoming Bauhaus centenary in 2019. I don’t know any other watchmaker that can convey these aspects with the same level of authenticity as Porsche Design.”
The 1919 Datetimer Series 1 applies the functional standard of modern architecture to the design of high-quality timepieces. The characteristic gaps at the band attachment and the form-locking transition into the strap add particular light-ness to the puristic aesthetic. The reduced structure of the dial draws the attention to the essential information, the display of time and date. The 1919 Datetimer Series 1 comes in four individual models of timeless elegance and handcrafted perfection that have been crafted to last.
The 1919 Globetimer Series 1 expands the puristic design of the 1919 Collection with an integrated display for a second time zone. A 24-hour ring was added to the dial, featuring an additional hand indicating the time in a second time zone. A feature that is especially appealing to international travelers, spending time in multiple time zones. The 1919 Globetimer Series 1 displays the time simultaneously at the destination as well as at home and is available in four models. The case back shows the 24 global time zones.
Like the Chronotimer Collection, the timepieces of the new 1919 Collection were developed by Porsche Design Timepieces AG headquartered in Solothurn in Switzerland, in close collaboration with the Porsche Design Studio in Zell am See in Austria establishing the path of the future positioning of the Porsche Design Group in this segment.
The first models of the 1919 Collection will be available worldwide at Porsche Design Stores and select fine watch retailers starting this fall. Depending on the model, pricing ranges from $3,400 to $4,550
