In 2018, Porsche Design introduced a minimalist chronograph with unusual colors, driven by its proprietary flyback movement.
My interest in Porsche Design was caused by Porsche Design of the IWC Ocean 2000 watch. That model also stimulated my deeper interest in mechanical watches. It took a while for that watch to enter my collection. But that is another story. Let's take a look at the 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Brown & Leather.
A bit of history Orfina made the first watch with the Porsche Design name in 1972. That is Chronograph 1. The outstanding feature of this watch is its color-it is matte black all over. The case, bracelet, and dial all showed that color, which was unusual at the time.
The famous cooperation with IWC began in 1977. In addition to Ocean 2000, the most famous watch of that era is probably the Titanium Chronograph. The name has already indicated the main feature of the watch produced by the collaboration: Titanium is used as the material for the case and bracelet. Contact with IWC ended in 1995.replica watches for sale
In the same year, Porsche Design acquired Eterna, and Eterna has since manufactured Porsche Design watches. Although the brand launched the impressive (and expensive) Indicator in 2004, which is a mechanical chronograph with a digital display (numbers instead of hands) of elapsed time, Porsche Design’s watch release frequency Lower. In 2007, this collaboration produced Worldtimer, a revolutionary practical concept that can handle different time zones. This watch already has a case very similar to the subject of this article-the 1919 Chronotimer series. Since 2010, Eterna has reproduced the famous early Porsche Design watch models. In 2011, Porsche Design sold Eterna to China Haidian Group (now known as Guancheng Watch and Jewellery Group, which also owns Kunlun Watch), and the production of Porsche Design watches ceased.
In 2014, Porsche Design finally took the production of watches into its own hands through Porsche Design Timepieces AG, which established its headquarters in Solothurn, Switzerland.
1919 Chronotimer Flyback Brown When you see the 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Brown, the most distinctive feature you notice is the color of the dial. Dark chocolate brown is a hue that you rarely encounter on watches, especially sports chronographs. For Porsche Design-a brand known for its color scheme consisting mainly of black and titanium-using brown almost violates convention. However, like the popular blue dial, the contrast of the brown dial is lower than that of black or white.replica watches for sale
…The lugs […] create an impression of technology, futuristic, and lightweight—a clear and unmistakable visual appearance.
The second outstanding feature of the 1919 Chronotimer is the lugs. As prominent hollow supports, they visually separate the strap from the case. This creates an impression of technology, futurism and lightness-an unmistakable visual appearance. The gap between the case and strap allows you to glance at your wrist, but I didn't notice that it would distract you.
The next visual effect that attracts your attention is the bright white hour markers and hands. The hour and minute hands are partially hollowed out to integrate the design of the lugs and the display. The combination of bright hour markers and matte dial gives a visual impression of a dashboard. This is reinforced by the design of an embedded accumulator that indicates the elapsed minutes (12 o'clock) and hours (6 o'clock). When the chronograph hands are not reset to zero, the similarity to the instrument panel is much stronger. GRAHAM LONDON replica watches
plan the details The small seconds at nine o'clock is reduced to a running indicator. One of the indicators of this indicator is slightly heavier and can be used as a reference to accurately set the time. There is a date window at four o'clock, which is hardly noticed. The aperture is small, there is no border, the background is the same color as the dial, and the font is the same as the rest of the dial. perfect!
The rectangular chronograph button blends perfectly with the shape of the case. The fact that these pushers only protrude from the housing on one side does not affect usability. The robust knurled screw-in crown completes the sporty style of the watch. The middle part of the case is glass-blasted, while the top and bottom parts are polished. Note the subtle visual effects produced by the polished edges of the chronograph buttons. The crystal on the bottom of the case reveals the movement.
Even to me as a German, the name of the 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Brown & Leather movement seems very timid. However, considering that this is the first self-made core in the nearly 50 years since Porsche Design launched a watch, this may be an appropriate name. To be precise, it is WERK 01.200.fake Richard Mille RM 11
This movement first appeared as the driving force of the Chronotimer 911 Turbo S Exclusive series. That watch is exclusively for the owner of the car of the same name-it is indeed a rather unique watch. Next, WERK 01.200 appeared in the Chronotimer Flyback Special Edition. The 1919 Chronotimer Flyback Brown & Leather is the third watch equipped with this movement.
Porsche Design is still a design studio, not a watch manufacturer. The movement is manufactured by the Concepto Watch Factory in La Chaux-de-Fonds. It is obvious that Porsche Design is heavily involved in the design. Many black surfaces can be seen through the back of the chronograph display. They are covered with a matte black coating and are scattered with miniature Porsche design logos.
Take a closer look at WERK 01.200 The most prominent part of the movement is the black rotor with a tungsten pendulum. Tungsten is a material that is rarely used in watch movements. Processing tungsten is a bit complicated, because it has the highest melting point of all chemical elements, and tungsten chips are easy to catch fire. But tungsten is very heavy (almost as heavy as gold), which is obviously the most essential feature of an oscillating weight. In addition, it is relatively cheap.replica Greubel Forsey Watches
The layout of this movement is intentionally similar to that of ETA 7750. In this way, if the Swatch Group eventually ceases to provide ETA movements outside of the Swatch Group, WERK 01.200 can easily replace the 7750 in existing watch models. When you press the timer button, you will immediately feel that it is not 7750. The action of the button is softer, similar to a chronograph controlled by a column wheel.
The finishing of movement parts is quite industrialized. There is no traditional decoration, only simple polishing. In any case, these components are refined enough to guarantee COSC certification.
Strap and buckle
1919 Chronotimer Flyback Brown & Leather uses a dark brown calfskin strap with discreet stitching of the same color. The leather used in this strap is the same as the leather of the Porsche car seat. Although this may be an exciting feature for Porsche fans, I think it is not the best solution. The leather is a bit too hard to be really comfortable, and this will not change over time. But at least it looks good.high quality replica watches
The strap is closed by a titanium double folding clasp, which has the same matt surface as the glass sandblasted part of the case. Unfortunately, the full folding clasp is very thick. The carrying area of the folding mechanism inside the strap is small. When you place your wrist on the armrest of a table or chair, the small area of the folding device will squeeze into your wrist.
The strap is abnormally fixed to the case. The edge of the strap is flush with the lugs, rather than between them like traditional lugs. This creates different looks and contributes a lot to the overall futuristic look of the watch. The disadvantage is that you can only use Porsche Design's proprietary strap. The pin that connects the strap to the case is not a spring rod. These seem to be similar to the pins that connect the links of the bracelet. Using standard tabulation tools, I cannot remove the watch strap. This means that not only can you connect the original Porsche Design strap to the 1919 Chronotimer, you can even do it through the Porsche Design service.
1919 Chronotimer Flyback Brown & Leather showed a unique design. The successful combination of futurism, elegance and sporty style, but still merged into a restrained overall appearance. In 2019, it won the Red Dot Design Award "Best of the Best".
Porsche Design's expertise is convincing. The timing function works very well and provides good accuracy. The strap looks good, and in combination with the iconic lugs, this watch has a distinctive appearance. In other words, leather may be more comfortable. The solution that connects the strap to the lugs may be more consumer-oriented. Although the folding buckle is generally considered to be a more comfortable and safe solution than the pin buckle, in this case, I think it cannot be worn. Fortunately, you can turn it into a pin buckle.fake men watches
