Porsche Design P'6620 Dashboard

Ten years after creating the watch inspired from the dashboard gauges of sports cars, the luxury brand has released the next-generation Porsche Design P'6620 Dashboard.

The new look of the P'6620 Dashboard evokes dynamism and clarity. Like all the products in the luxury brand's portfolio, this one too was shaped into a precision instrument by the Porsche Design Studio. With a diameter of 44 millimetres and a height of 14.5 millimeters, this is a watch that makes itself known on the wrist. The purist dial, the Arabic numerals and the straightforward hands filled with luminescent material combine to turn the chronograph into a clear and unmistakable statement. The two elongated push buttons next to the crown control the start/stop function. The sapphire crystal is non-reflective and the case is water-resistant to a depth of 100 meters.

The case and bracelet of the new P'6620 Dashboard are made entirely of lightweight, non-allergenic titanium. The material was known in aerospace industry, and Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, designer and founder of the luxury brand, became the first to use it in watchmaking in 1980. He recognised its benefits: titanium is harder than steel, but only half the weight, does not rust and is anti-magnetic. The new chronograph is also available in a deep black colour produced by shot-blasting titanium and covering it with a layer of black PVD. In fact, the black watches trend was also a Porsche Design idea. Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche already came up with the world's first-ever all-black watch in 1972.
