The case back on the Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer Series 1 features the engraved city references for the 24 time zones. It’s not really practical since it’s on the back of the watch, so you’d have to take off the watch to use it as a reference. That being said, it’s an attractive feature and provides you with a reference if you need it, without cluttering up the dial. The Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer Series 1 has a Sellita SW 330 movement. It has a power reserve of 42 hours, with 25 jewels, and has a frequency of 28,800 per hour (4 Hz).
As I mentioned, there are going to be four watches in each series. The same finish and strap/bracelet variations apply to both watches. There’s a titanium and rubber version, as well as the all-titanium version. These have a titanium case, with the rubber model coming on a black rubber strap, and the all-titanium model coming on a titanium folding clasp bracelet. The other two versions have a black titanium carbide coating in place of the standard titanium on the case and bracelet. On the topic of bracelets, I find the gaps at the band attachment to be a nice touch. Expect for the 1919 collection to be available this fall, and prices will range between $3,400-$4,550 for the Porsche Design 1919 Datetimer Series 1 and the Porsche Design 1919 Globetimer Series 1 watches. porsche-design.com
